Title
(EN) DEVICE FOR PRODUCING WATER FROM AMBIENT AIR
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE PRODUCTION D’EAU À PARTIR DE L’AIR AMBIANT
Abstract
(EN) The invention concerns a device for producing water from ambient air comprising a heat pump with a cooling unit and a receiver for collecting the water that formed as condensed water vapour on a cooling surface of the cooling unit. In accordance with the invention the cooling surface is located in a closed space and a water vapour permeable membrane separates the ambient air and the closed space.
(FR) La présente invention a pour objet un dispositif permettant de produire de l’eau à partir de l’air ambiant. Ledit dispositif comporte une pompe à chaleur munie d’une unité de refroidissement et un récepteur pour collecter l’eau qui est produite sous forme de vapeur d’eau condensée sur une surface de refroidissement de l’unité de refroidissement. Selon la présente invention, la surface de refroidissement se situe dans un espace clos et une membrane perméable à la vapeur d’eau sépare l’air ambiant de l’espace clos.
