Find all the answers to your questions about atmospheric water generators.

If you’ve never encountered or used an atmospheric water generator, you likely have a few questions about them. Aldelano’s Solar WaterMaker™ utilizes specific innovative technologies to produce fresh, clean drinking water, but here are some general answers to the most common questions about atmospheric water generators.

What is an atmospheric water generator?

An atmospheric water generator is a device that creates fresh water from air. Atmospheric water generators are designed to extract water molecules from the atmosphere and produce clean, drinkable water. They are often portable and can be used in a variety of locations, both indoor and outdoor.

How do atmospheric water generators work?

Atmospheric water generators use dehumidifying and condensing technologies to capture the water molecules from the air. Once the water molecules have been collected, condensed, and pressurized, filtration technologies ensure that the water is pure and safe for drinking. Aldelano’s Solar WaterMaker™ specifically, utilizes a six-stage filtration and purification process to ensure all water created is clean and pure. This process:

  • Kills bacteria and viruses
  • Reduces dirt, sand, and rust
  • Reduces chlorine taste and odors
  • Adds protection with a second carbon block filter
  • Includes a final polishing filter to improve taste
  • Sterilizes with a UV sterilizer as water is dispensed

How much water can Aldelano’s atmospheric water generator (the Solar WaterMaker™) produce?

Aldelano’s Solar WaterMaker™ can produce up to 50 gallons or 189 liters of clean drinking water per day. Those 50 gallons can be used for drinking, cooking, gardening and more. It is important to note that the ideal relative humidity is 80 percent for optimal performance.

What are the benefits of atmospheric water generators?

There are many benefits associated with atmospheric water generators. First and foremost, fresh water generators can provide clean drinking water in off-grid locations where it may not otherwise be available. Additionally, the water generated can be used in both a hot or cold state. One notable benefit of the Aldelano Solar WaterMaker™ in particular, is its ability to function outside of power grid areas. This solar-powered water maker is designed to operate independently of any power grid during the day and can run off of stored solar energy at night.

How are atmospheric water generators being used?

Atmospheric water generators such as the Aldelano Solar WaterMaker™ are being used worldwide in countless locations and for various purposes. They can be used for:

  • Humanitarian/emergency aid
  • Farming/agriculture industry
  • Restaurants and mobile food and beverage services
  • Military
