Water-to-Water: a massive
opportunity to do good.

Our Water-to-Water unit uses renewable energy to produce clean water from seawater, brackish water, or contaminated water sources.

The world has plenty of seawater and polluted water.

Up to now, the challenge has been to convert that water into drinking water at the point where it’s needed and at a scale that’s appropriate and affordable. The Water-to-Water units have solved those problems.

Customers for Rainmaker’s Water-to-Water technology include governments and communities, NGOs, military, and commercial or industrial companies.

A growing need for Rainmaker’s Water-to-Water technology

The leading applications for our Water-to-Water technologies include:

  • Communities with inadequate or no access to a fresh water source or reliable energy source, but close to a significant supply of seawater or polluted water
  • Corporations looking for energy-efficient technology to clean and potentially reuse waste water
  • Cities or regional governments restoring rivers, lakes and harbors

How Rainmaker’s Water-to-Water technology works.

Using a Membrane Distillation process, water is evaporated under low pressure by a heat pump condensation process that recycles the heat through an evaporator. The vapour produced from heating the water passes through the vapour-selective and hydrophobic membranes.

This membrane only allows water vapour to diffuse through, unlike Reverse Osmosis where water containing dissolved salts and other solids pass through the membrane.

The pores in this membrane are also larger than the pores in Reverse Osmosis membranes so there is less pressure and energy required as a
result. The driving force of this technology is the partial pressure difference (temperature difference) between each side of the membrane pores.

They can be efficiently powered by wind, solar, grid, generator, or combinations. Water can now be produced at the point of use, eliminating transportation and distribution costs.

Water-to-Water units are available in three sizes, producing 37,500, 75,000 or 150,000 liters of drinking water per day.

Water-to-Water power options.

Rainmaker Water-to-Water units offer you the most flexibility for power options, depending on preferences and infrastructure. Wind, solar, or generator-powered units require no other electrical infrastructure.

  • Wind powered
  • Solar powered
  • Grid or generator only
  • Hybrid – wind and solar powered
  • Hybrid – wind and grid / generator powered

Requirements for Rainmaker’s Water-to-Water production.

  • For wind-powered, wind speed of 3 – 18 meters per second (6.7 – 40 miles per hour)
  • The footprint is small, so our technology can be located near source water and where the clean water is needed
  • Water production can be scaled up simply by adding more units
  • Operational within 14 days from the equipment arrival on site

Benefits of Rainmaker Water-to-Water production.

  • Capable of treating feed water with high concentrations of pollutants or salt concentration near saturation point
  • 100% rejection of ions, macromolecules, colloids, biological cells and other non-volatile impurities
  • In most cases, simple removal of solids from the feed water is all that is necessary
  • Low hydrostatic pressures mean that the process can be performed at operating pressures generally near atmospheric pressure
  • Feed temperatures can be considerably lower than the boiling point of water
  • No brine disposal necessary; zero liquid waste is possible to significantly cut costs
  • More water production by volume of water input
  • No toxic anti-fouling chemicals are necessary; no chemical costs
  • Can produce drinking water for as little as 0.5¢ per literChoice of power options – with, solar or generator, no electricity grid is required
  • Wind and solar are environmentally and climate friendly with no carbon footprint
  • Compact size that is easy to locate and scale
  • Harvest water directly where it is needed for decentralized water production to reduce or eliminate water distribution costs
  • Minimal service and maintenance with estimated 20-year life
  • Proprietary software-based control module can be accessed remotely for updates, calibration as well as offsite troubleshooting

Rainmaker’s Water-to-Water product line.

Our Water-to-Water system can be powered by a variety of energy sources with varying output capacities. Deployment can be as fast as 90 days after purchase order. Units are operational within 14 days after containers arrive on location.
