Title: DEVICE FOR RECOVERING WATER FROM AN AMBIENT ATMOSPHERE
Abstract:
The invention relates to a device for recovering water, in particular drinking water, in which air is dehumidified by means of a cold condenser and thus water is collected. The condenser comprises at least one driven rotor (1), the rotor blades (2) of which are made of open-pored metal foam. The condenser comprises one or more cooling elements for active cooling. The condenser is surrounded by a tubular housing (4) which is open on both sides, the longitudinal axis (5) of which is largely oriented parallel to the axis of rotation (3) of the rotors (1). The housing (4) can have one or more water drainage openings. A water collecting tank (10) is fluidically connected with said water drainage openings or is arranged in the end region of the housing in such a way that the condensed water (7) recovered by air dehumidification runs into the water collecting tank (10).
