What is and how does the fog water collection system work?

Fog Water Collection System

The fog water collection system that collects water from fog, based on a set of fog catchers (non-traditional technology), a pipeline or water conveyance system to the benefiting population, retained through water storage tanks, and finally distributed to households.

Fog catchers are structures similar to road signs, composed of eucalyptus posts, a OBAMALLA® Raschel mesh, a gutter that receives the collected water, and an entire support system. Fog occurs at higher altitudes, usually from 500m upwards, and the catchments are at ground level.

The fog catchers are located in the mountains of the Coastal ranges that frame these towns; this way, water flows by gravity.

  • The system can supply all the required water if there is adequate fog frequency and space for the installation of fog catchers.
  • The system is environmentally friendly and doesn’t present any such impediments. No electrical mechanism is need.
  • The system is environmentally friendly and doesn’t present any such impediments. The most important aspect of this system is its water-catching mesh, as not all meshes are suitable for collection.

Through a study, it was found that the OBAMALLA® Raschel mesh

A mesh with a weave that doesn’t allow smooth airflow creates back currents that limit the protected area. The Raschel OBAMALLA® mesh® has high mechanical resistance to Wind action. It decreases wind speed by 80%. The Raschel OBAMALLA® mesh didn’t undergo any variations in relation to its physical characteristics during the measurement period.

This confirms that the least expensive material for implementing it in fog catchment systems is the Raschel OBAMALLA® mesh®. Which proved to be more effective and economical compared to other materials used.

The efficiency of the Raschel OBAMALLA® mesh® as a conventional material use in fog catchment systems was corroborated. Demonstrating that it is highly functional in water capture, achieving a volume of 26,975 cm3 of water during the experiment duration. Compared to the Raschel OBAMALLA® mesh®, the veil achieved a good capture level, with a difference of 2530 cm3. Which is consider moderately representative.

The OBAMALLA® mesh has the necessary characteristics of resistance and function for the water-catching mechanism. It allows airflow through the middle and possesses mechanical resistance to wind action, also reducing its speed by 80%.

The fog water collection system requires fog presence, which is why the water yield will depend on its location. The OBAMALLA® mesh demonstrated that it is highly functional in water capture, thanks to its polyethylene tapes, making it resistant. Our OBAMALLA® Raschell mesh doesn’t undergo any variation in relation to its physical characteristics during the measurement period. It’s ideal for the construction of fog water catchers because it withstands many years of all types of atmospheric factors, even supporting storms of certain intensity.
