Simple -Drinkable / Recycling

Simple -Drinkable

Simple-Drinkable is a simple water purification device. People could use Simple-Drinkable to get fresh and drinkable water in special cases. For example, fishermen sometimes lack of drinkable water during their sea voyage. Simple-Drinkable provides a way of making salt water drinkable. It functions by filling the can with seawater then putting it in the sun. As the temperature grows, seawater will evaporate rapidly because the can absorbs heat quickly. Steam is liquefied into water droplets while meeting the top part of water bottle. Drinkable water is obtained when the water droplets flow along the sides of the bottle.
