Condensing machine

Idea

Here is a machine to make drink water thru air condensation. Portable, autonomous, personal and without moving parts, build in long lasting materials. Several machines could for a chain of floating distilleries.

Drinking water

The water produced could be enriched with minerals from the sea breeze with a sort of mineral filter.

Attributes

  • Autonomoius without mooving parts
  • Clearly understandable form->funktion so easily troubleshootable and servable
  • Easy to use, like emptying the water
  • Large air opening with many flics -> large
  • Create airflow with pression.

Design

The heart of the machine is the air tube with its flanges heat exchanging with the colder sea water

Looping funnel

The first idea was that the air would loop and chill in the sea water then condensate. Sketches with Laval nozzle the create drag.

Straight through

Next design is a tube where the air goes straight thru with flanges rotated 45° to minimise drag and facilitate the water collecting.
