Once waters particles from the air are intercepted by the mesh, they instantaneously drop to a trough below. The trough conveys the water droplets by gravity flow to where you want it stored for later use, such as a cistern, rain barrel or reservoir, or drain directly to an area where the water can be used immediately. We are working closely with the USGS to take advantage of the extensive fog mapping – weather data and the expertise of the agency. We will also contribute to the USGS’s data by equipping our Cloudfisher systems with instruments that will provide near real time data related to Fog to Water conversion.
Storm Water Collection
A storm, especially a heavy storm, can produce a lot of water. However, the majority of this runoff is wasted because either there is pavement allowing the water to leave or soils are not suitable to allow infiltration. Our fog nets are also designed to collect rainfall—in any amount. During prolonged or heavy storm events, large, continuous volumes of water can be collected in the troughs and conveyed directly to storage for future use
What Makes Fog2H20 Different?
Not only do we use advanced net material, our design, the fine mesh material used to intercept, capture and convey water droplets from the atmosphere is further enhanced by a patented nanoparticle technology from NBDnano. This nano technology increases water volume between 5-10 times compared to a typical standalone fog net. Our fog net systems require no electricity, are easily installed, and demand little maintenance. Fog2H2O features the proven and tested Cloudfisher™ fog to water system from Aqualonis. The large scale Cloudfisher™ Pro system is ideal for volume water production whereas the Cloudfisher™ Mini is well suited to testing, data collection and proof of performance applications. Cloudfisher™ is a proprietary water system from Aqualonis.
