Why TUAFI

Why Atmospheric Water Generator Technology by TUAFI?

Atmospheric water generation (AWG) is a process during which humidity is drawn from the air and is condensed, filtered, and purified into potable water.

AWG does not rely on rain or a body of water. AWGs generate water independent of these resources, allowing those in desert climates, droughts, areas heavily affected by pollution, or otherwise impacted by poor water resources to access clean, pure drinking water. Instead, AWGs quite literally pull water out of the air.

Unfortunately, while pulling water from air sounds like a smart solution to the world’s water crises, today’s AWGs have several flaws which render them impractical for long-term sustainability.

What Are Some Of The Problems With Atmospheric Water Generators?

  • AWGs are expensive to install and run. AWGs need constant electricity to run, energy needs that areas of the world most in need of water cannot support. Even though select AWG models run on solar power, relying on solar power alone is not a viable option when there are communities and customers depending on timely production and shipments. Not to mention, the machines are very large and very noisy.
  • AWGs don’t work in extreme climates. AWGs work at the weather’s mercy. The machines’ condensers do not function properly in environments where the temperature exceeds 95°F or drops below 40°F, even if there is enough humidity in the air. They also do not work in dry areas; their capacity diminishes when the humidity drops below 70%, and they cease to work at all when humidity dips under 30%.
  • There are no efficient ways to distribute water from an AWG. The current AWG model requires users to go to the machine, then bring the water back with them. This inefficient distribution system makes it difficult for those who are most in need to actually obtain the water generated for their communities.
  • The water from AWGs could easily become contaminated. Just like any water source, water from an AWG needs to be treated properly. However, if any given part breaks within the AWG, it can lead to bacteria growth and contamination which forces the manufacturer to dispose of that batch of water. This wastes time, effort, and resources poured into an AWG.
  • AWGs do not purify the air before going through the condensation process. AWGs draw in the air around them, without any infrastructure in place to purify it. That means water produced by an AWG could be possibly contaminated with pollutants and allergens.
  • Water produced from an AWG does not have the same mineral content as other drinking water. These essential minerals play an important part in health. As a result, relying on AWG-generated water could become a health hazard to consumers over time.

    The AWGs of today have shown promise to help supply water to impoverished areas around the world, but their technology has not been touched in 20 years. There are several aspects which need to be modified in order to transform this awesome device into a system that can sustain communities throughout the world. Simply put, AWGs could not be relied upon to address the world’s water crises -- until TUAFI.

How TUAFI AWG Factories Improve Atmospheric Water Generators

  • TUAFI’s model bottles the water for efficient distribution -- and sales. As the first factory to bottle water from an AWG, TUAFI’s AWG factory model provides a practical way to deliver water to communities most in need. By designing an efficient way to distribute the water, TUAFI’s AWG factories can be built in humid environments, automatically creating a more sustainable water source. Plus, bottling the fresh, clean water creates a revenue stream to sell to an attentive, growing market of environmentally-conscious consumers.
  • TUAFI’s model brings AWGs indoors for superior quality control. TUAFI’s factories make it possible to stabilize the environment, so AWGs can work predictably 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The indoor facilities keep the machines contained at the optimal temperature, and the structures shelter them from drastic weather and air pressure changes. This reduces or eliminates many of the stability issues faced by current AWG infrastructure. Factories also minimize exposure to pollutants, dust, pollen, and bacteria, ensuring a cleaner final product.
  • New filtration systems purify air before it goes through the condensation process. Air flow from the outdoors and from the factory’s internal HVAC systems is properly cleaned of pollutants before it undergoes the condensation process. Introducing AFPRO Bag, UV, and other filter types will clear the air before it even touches the AWG. This assures that TUAFI’s factories produce quality, clean water.
  • TUAFI AWG factories incorporate reverse osmosis purifiers. Reverse osmosis effectively removes turbidity, sediment, colloidal clays, total dissolved solids, toxic metals, radioactive elements, pesticides, and herbicides from the water.
  • TUAFI’s model introduces the necessary minerals back into the water supply. Reintroducing essential minerals is automatically part of TUAFI’s water production process.
  • TUAFI factories can supply potable and non-potable needs. A percentage of water produced by TUAFI’s AWG factory will be reserved for sale as raw water. This will also be used to create humidity whenever humidity levels dip below ideal levels.
  • Improved solar power keeps AWGs running without relying on a traditional power source. TUAFI’s AWG factories will be built with improved solar energy storage and advanced power controls to help conserve the amount of energy used. Advanced inverter technology will continue to draw solar power, even in non-ideal weather conditions.
  • Built-in emergency reserves help keep up with demand. One-fifth of all water produced by TUAFI’s AWG factories will be reserved in case of emergency or if continued operations are interrupted due to facility repair.
