Title (EN) LOW-GRAVITY WATER CAPTURE DEVICE
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE CAPTURE D'EAU À FAIBLE GRAVITÉ
Abstract:
(EN) An apparatus to separate water droplets from an air stream includes an elongated tube having a first end and a second end. The elongated tube includes an opening at a first end of the elongated tube, the opening may be positioned to accept the air stream. A reservoir is positioned at a second end of the elongated tube. A helix structure is positioned within the elongated tube. The helix structure includes an upper surface, a lower surface arranged opposite the upper surface, an outer edge, and a variable pitch along a length of the elongated tube. The variable pitch may provide a variable interior angle between an inner wall of the elongated tube and the upper surface of the helix structure.
(FR) L'invention concerne un appareil pour séparer des gouttelettes d'eau d'un flux d'air, qui comprend un tube allongé ayant une première extrémité et une seconde extrémité. Le tube allongé comprend une ouverture au niveau d'une première extrémité du tube allongé, et l'ouverture peut être positionnée pour accepter le flux d'air. Un réservoir est positionné au niveau d'une seconde extrémité du tube allongé. Une structure hélicoïdale est positionnée à l'intérieur du tube allongé. La structure hélicoïdale comprend une surface supérieure, une surface inférieure disposée à l'opposé de la surface supérieure, un bord extérieur et un pas variable le long d'une longueur du tube allongé. Le pas variable peut offir un angle intérieur variable entre une paroi interne du tube allongé et la surface supérieure de la structure hélicoïdale.
