Title
(EN) WIND ENERGY USE FOR WATER HARVESTING FROM AIR
(FR) UTILISATION D'ÉNERGIE ÉOLIENNE POUR RÉCUPÉRER DE L'EAU ATMOSPHÉRIQUE
Abstract
(EN)
The invention provides an ecologically clean method and apparatus for water harvesting from air. The method is based on changing of thermodynamic state properties of air wind getting a rotation and passing through convergent-divergent nozzles. The apparatus is a water condensation device exposed to humid wind. The constructive solution has no moving solid parts, and the incoming wind is an inherent moving component of the device. It comprises a cascade of sequentially arranged horn-tubes and a set of stationary wing-like details. Those horn-tubes transform the wind into a fast and cooled out-flowing air flux coming-and-hitting upon the set of wing-like details, where the air portions are accelerated and eddying. The inner static pressure and temperature decrease in the air portions. The decrease in static pressure and temperature triggers off condensation of water-vapors into water-aerosols.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un procédé écologiquement propre et un appareil de récupération d'eau atmosphérique. Le procédé consiste à changer les propriétés d'état thermodynamique du vent par effet de rotation et au moyen de buses convergentes-divergentes. L'appareil est un dispositif de condensation d'eau exposé au vent humide. Le dispositif de l'invention ne comporte aucune pièce solide mobile, et le vent arrivant en est une composante mobile intrinsèque. Il comprend une série de tubes à pavillon disposés en cascade, et un ensemble accessoires fixes de type ailette. Ces tubes à pavillon transforment le vent en un flux d'air sortant rapide et refroidi qui vient percuter l'ensemble accessoires de type ailette, où les composantes air sont accélérées en tourbillons. La pression statique et la température internes diminuent dans les composantes air. La diminution de la pression statique et de la température déclenche la condensation des vapeurs d'eau et leur transformation en aérosols d'eau.
