At 250 days a year in the desert of Namibia occurs the so called desert fog. It differs from conventional water mist by larger particles. Because of that it is possible to filter the fog from the air, the resulting water is food safe. The basic idea of the Fog Collector is to have a large surface with low air resistance. The basic form consists of a flat steel plate, the spirals are lasered and then deformed so that the conical shape is formed. The fog flows through the coils, the water particles will stick to the structure and drop-off.
