New And Inventive Water Machines

There must be hundreds of water machines available on the market a fact easily substantiated by Google search.

Pure, clean, drinking water is required across the world and is quickly turning into the most highly prized resource of all. However, ninety-seven percent of the earth’s water is in the oceans. It is undrinkable and is unusable for most culinary and commercial purposes. Only three (3) percent of the world’s water is fresh. Of this three percent, two-thirds is locked in glaciers and polar ice caps. Of the remaining one percent of the earth’s water, about half is located beneath the earth’s surface.

Rivers and lakes contain approximately 1/50th of one percent of the earth’s water. A significant portion of this fraction has been contaminated by industrial civilization, and much of the remaining “freshwater” is severely polluted or biologically contaminated. Unfortunately, this pollution has begun to reach our underground water as well. Continually, on any given day, more than one-half of the earth’s human population is ill, with the majority of these cases caused by waterborne contaminants.
The World Health Organization of the United Nations estimates that eighty percent of this illness is caused by contaminated drinking water. Most of the countries round the world, not only the economically backward countries, have insufficient treatment facilities of water, or are devoid of water treatment facilities. It is becoming clear that new technologies are needed in every segment of the water treatment industry: agriculture, horticulture, food processing, industrial waste treatment, public water supplies, and sewage treatment. These systems must be environmentally-friendly and rely on methods and processes that are not chemically based.
Water machine products are best described as atmospheric water generators. One of these is Air2Water, which is a family of water generating machines which use technology (developed and patented by Worldwide Water, Inc.) that extracts pure drinking water from the air. The machine first pulls air through an electrostatic filter removing 93% of all air borne particles. As the machine collects the water it drops into a collection tray and immediately passes into Ultraviolet (UV) light, where the water stays in contact with UV rays for approximately 30 minutes. This kills 99.9% of all germs and bacteria in the water. The water is then pumped through a sediment screen into a 24 volt water pump, and back through two (2) solid carbon block 1 micron water filters, NSF 53 approved, which removes 99.9% of any volatile organic chemicals (VOC’s) that may be in the water. It also filtered through our proprietary Ultrafiltration (UF) with membrane pore size of 0.015 micron to remove virtually all bacteria and common viruses. The water then goes through a half calcite, half GAC mineral additive where it is then pumped into a reservoir tank. The water is then recycled every hour through the UV and back into the reservoir tank. The water is then chilled or heated and dispensed to the consumers.

One of Time magazine’s best inventions for 2006 is called the Rainmaker. The writer of science-fiction Arthur C. Clarke once wrote that “any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” Case in point: this water-harvesting machine, which can pull up to 500 gal. of drinkable water per day out of thin air. Its precise workings aren’t public, but they use a chemical process similar to the one that causes salt to absorb moisture from the air (and clump up your saltshaker). The water machine isn’t particularly portable–its 20 ft. long–but it will be a godsend for disaster victims or troops in desert combat.

These are just two of the many machines that are on the market to provide clean drinking water.
