Mist converter / Water resources

Mist converter

In areas featuring drought and great diurnal temperature variations, it is much likely for large amount of moisture to form in the air in the morning. In our daily life, cotton materials turn out to possess high water absorption capacity. Therefore, cotton sails are adopted to capture moisture. On the whole, a sailboat mould is used. While its upper part includes three pieces of downward lobe canvas, the lower part is an infundibular barrel that collects and stores water. Moreover, the lobe canvas facilitates moisture gathering and the infundibular barrel further promotes moisture afflux.
