Water Treatment Unit for Vehicle HVAC or Ground A/C
Today many militaries have defined a requirement of three days of logistics independence with an average of 10 liters (2.6 gallons) of water per soldier per day. Providing this water in the field is a difficult and at times dangerous logistics task.
An average air conditioner (A/C) unit naturally produces large amounts of water, which is currently drained into the ground. But discarding this precious byproduct is wasteful, especially when more energy and resources are required to generate “new” water.
The Water Treatment Unit (WTU) takes advantage of this valuable resource by harvesting the water produced by A/C systems and purifying it to achieve high-quality drinking water. Our unique WTU can also optimize and increase the water production capabilities of an A/C unit by adjusting the operational mode of several internal key parameters, without affecting the original purpose of moderating air temperature.
The water produced by the air conditioner is purified and mineralized by the WTU to create fresh, pure potable water.
