BEL’s Atmospheric Water Generator can be used to generate water straight from the humidity present in the atmosphere.
BEL’s Atmospheric Water Generator is equipped with latest technology to extract water from the humidity present in the atmosphere and purify it. It uses heat exchange for condensing the atmospheric moisture to produce pure, safe and clean water for drinking.
