Introducing the world’s most efficient distiller – the Aquaback Distillation Recycling Module (DRM). Our patent pending technology produces the gold standard of water at or below the operating cost of Reverse-Osmosis systems.
The revolutionary distiller converts 100% of input water into purified water while utilizing advanced heat recovery systems to consume 20 watt hours or less per gallon of distilled water produced.
It will be ready for sale in 2014.
By incorporating its breakthrough, energy efficient, water purification distillation recycling module into solution-specific systems, Aquaback will provide healthful, pure, more reliably supplied, more efficiently delivered water to the world’s people, businesses and activities to sustain health and facilitate productivity and growth. Aquaback will expand production, grow revenues and profits, provide a productive and healthy environment for its employees and choose supply chain partners that do the same to encourage rapid deployment of its productivity enhancing water solutions.
William Zebuhr, the founder of Aquaback Technologies, Inc. and inventor of the DRM, began thinking about the sustainable device about 15 years ago. This company was formed on December 6, 2010. With a core team of experienced individuals, the DRM invention is becoming a reality.
Distillation produces the gold standard of water quality removing all harmful and potentially harmful chemicals, metals, many of which are toxic, illness-causing bacteria, viruses, and parasites, environmentally damaging nitrogen to water bodies, salts, naturally occurring arsenic, radioactivity, gases including methane and ammonia and eliminates hard water.
It is the most fundamental method used by nature to clean water. In nature, the energy required to evaporate water is supplied by the sun, providing a large amount of energy but vaporizing a very little amount of water per unit area of the earth’s surface. In nature, the process is inefficient but provides a renewable supply of clean water.
Human induced distillation as a water purification method has been known and practiced for centuries. In the developing world today it is still the most widely used method to purify water because it produces excellent water in one step. It is safe and reliable because the water component in a contaminate mix is vaporized as pure water molecules and then condensed as pure water leaving contaminates behind. In traditional distillers, the process is very energy intensive and hence inefficient since the heat of vaporization is high and that heat is simply dissipated in the condensation process. Vapor compression distillation is a method where the majority of the heat of vaporization can be recovered to greatly reduce the energy usage. However, a majority of heat recapture is insufficient to be energy competitive with other purification methods. As a result, while providing the highest quality water, distillation has been too energy intensive and therefore too expensive to be competitive with alternative membrane filtration and chemical separation technologies. The high capital cost of large, heavy, inefficient distillation equipment has been a further impediment to the appeal of distillation. Aquaback’s design has solved both these drawbacks with the result that its technology is now the best solution to many purification needs.
By Using Aquaback's breakthrough distiller as the central water purification device in systems targeted at many applications our distiller will deliver, in either a distributed or centralized configuration, performance criteria including: economy of operation; percentage of reject water; water quality; equipment capital cost; equipment life; reliability; maintenance; skill and attention required to operate; and size and weight that significantly outperform competing technologies.
