GlossaryAmbient Atmospheric Water Vapour
Water vapour in the air.
In hygrometrical reports, complete saturation of the air with moisture is designated by a humidity level of 100, and partial saturation is noted by smaller numbers
(n) material made by bonding together sheets of two different metals
When two objects in each other's vicinity have different electrical charges, an electrostatic field exists between them. An electrostatic field also forms around any single object that is electrically charged with respect to its environment. An object is negatively charged (-) if it has an excess of electrons relative to its surroundings. An object is positively charged ( ) if it is deficient in electrons with respect to its surroundings.
Reverse Osmosis is the reversal of the natural flow of Osmosis. In a water purification system, the goal is to extract clean water from salty or contaminated water. By applying pressure on the contaminated side, the semi-permeable membrane screens out the impurities, but lets water molecules pass through.
Water that is safe to drink.
Innovative "Point of Consumption" purification by powerful ultraviolet irradiation eliminating the need for humans to consume unnecessary chlorine in their drinking water.
atmospheric moisture that has condensed
is a specially manufactured hollow-fibre membrane module, with a special configuration to achieve optimal results tailored to difficult waters. The ultra-filtration membrane is based on a nominal pore size of approximately 0.01 µm, and is made of modified Polyethersulfone (PES), a hydrophilic, chemically stable polymer capable of withstanding aggressive environments often present in water and fluid treatment situations. With a double-skinned design, separation layers on both sides of the fibre enable the Kristal300 to be operated in either configuration (outside-in or inside-out), enabling great flexibility in its applications.
