Aquadome Solar Water Still

In a situation of survival, the Aquadome Solar Still (otherwise known as Vapor Still), can provide a short to medium-term source of fresh drinking water from seawater, rivers and ponds. This is an important and necessary piece of survival equipment, which has been used by the military and yachtsmen for many years.

Solar radiation is used to distil and collect the drinking water; essential for daily survival both at sea and in deserts. It is lightweight, compact and easy to use with an output of between 500 and 2000cc per day depending upon climatic conditions.

Performance Details

Any solar still is dependent on the level of solar radiation available. This level is in turn, dependant on the location, season and weather conditions. However, the following figures serve as an indication of performance.

The Aquadome Solar Still weighs approximately as much as half a litre of water but can produce many times this weight in drinking water per day. The factors, which affect performance, are also those that affect the survivor’s need for water. When the conditions are hotter, the likelihood of strong sun is much higher, and therefore the Still is likely to be more productive.

Simplicity: The Aquadome Still can be operated by persons who have not received training.
Operates at Sea or on Land: The Aquadome Still incorporates a buoyancy ring enabling the still to float.
Minimal Attention: The Aquadome Still only requires attention each time one litre of fresh water is produced or once a day.
Minimum Weight & Bulk: An efficient design and great care over material selection produces minimum weight and bulk.
Minimal Attention: The Aquadome Still only requires attention each time one litre of fresh water is produced or once a day.
Conservation of Impure Water: There is no waste of impure water.
Performance: Maximum output of 300mls per hour.
Operational Life: Over a long period of time in operational conditions the productivity of the Still will decline due to build up of salt on the solar collector. However, using the flushing procedure contained in the general instructions the operational life can be extended indefinitely.
Shelf Life: The shelf life expectancy is set at two years.

Size 228mm x 315mm x 35mm
