Ⅴ. HOW IT WORKS?
It is important to be aware that your Atmospheric Water Generator is a humidity and temperature driven machine. This means the machine totally depends on the level of humidity in the air and the temperature to produce water. Ideally, the humidity level should be at least 50% or above to achieve the machine’s optimum performance. In places with lower humidity level, the machine will still produce water but not as quickly, nor as much as in places with high level of humidity. In the house environment, higher level of humidity tends to be around the kitchen area, near an open window or in more spacious rooms.
This unit also performs well in an air-conditioned room, but it is recommended to open the window at night to make the room ventilated.
Because your Atmospheric Water Generator works by converting the humidity in the air to water, this unit also acts as an effective dehumidifier. In areas with high humidity, it not only acts as a good water generator, but also a perfect dehumidifier to keep you healthy and ensure your home appliances a long service time.
To ensure high quality of drinking water, the Atmospheric Water Generator is utilizing multiple filtration technologies.
When the air is dry or during cold season, water generation will be slow. At this moment, connection to city water will make the machine serve as water purifier by utilization of the filtration and sterilization system.
The unit is fitted with a microcomputer, which ensures proper working of internal parts.
2. Electronic Sensors
Various electronic sensors are attached to parts such as UV lights and storage tanks. These sensors ensure that all parts are working properly and warn you should that a breakdown or performance irregularities occur in the machine.
3. Energy Saving Features
To conserve electricity, electronic sensors have been placed in the storage tanks to automatically stop the machine from making more water when the tank s are full and cold water reaches the preset temperature.
4. Water Leakage Detector
In case of any unexpected situation of water leakage, the machine will stop working automatically and be accompanied with warning sound and flashing screen.
5. Condensing Coils
The condenser is designed especially and with food class coating to prevent any metal pollution and improve water production efficiency.
