AbstractGrassmere Dynamics, LLC of Gurley, Alabama and ZanAqua Technologies, Inc of Hudson, New Hampshire have teamed together to develop a rapidly deployable solar powered vapor compression distiller. The system will produce 200 gallons per day of potable water from seawater or NBC-contaminated water using a solar concentrator as the only power source. It will be delivered to the site in several components and assembled on site and made operational within two hours by four persons. No individual component of the system weighs more than 80 lbs and all the components can be transported to the site in a standard military truck or H-53 type helicopter. Using proprietary materials and fabrication techniques, the team expects the system to be lower in cost than any competing system on the market today. The system’s low cost will make it accessible to local and state humanitarian and disaster relief organizations, as well as individuals and companies requiring water purification in remote locations that have no electrical power utilities.
