  • Due to many problems in the field of water supply, no study has been done on atmospheric water extraction devices. The objective of this research was to optimize the control parameters and the amounts of water produced from a physical model designed and built by the team including two-phase (refrigeration collector and sponge collector) in different atmospheric conditions were investigated. First, the effect of the sponge filter on the amount of water obtained, then the pilot in different weather conditions were studied to obtain optimal conditions. The suctions of 450 to 1400 rpm were applied at each humidity and temperature. In all the mentioned cases, the temperature of the device was studied at 2, 4, and 6 degrees below the dew point. Results showed that the sponge filter can increase the water produced by up to 15%. The first evaporator produced more water than the second evaporator. The optimal air suction speed inside the device depends on the relative humidity and temperature values. For the first and second evaporators, temperatures below 4 °C and 6 °C are optimal, respectively, and with increasing absolute humidity, the optimum suction speed increases. Parameters such as airflow velocity, number of collectors, temperature difference with dew point, and moisture absorption levels were influential in the amount of water produced. According to the qualitative study, the obtained water has a desirable quality for use in sensitive applications.
