New dispensers provide a sustainable alternative to conventional water sources
In the midst of the region’s worst drought in history, Skywell LLC, a new Los Angeles-based water technology company, is rolling out a series of products that create air water — a new source of water — to the business and office communities throughout Southern California in Orange County, Los Angeles, Ventura and Santa Barbara counties.
Skywell will be unveiling three models of air water dispensers as part of its Southern California launch. The Skywell 5T features an interactive touchscreen with programmable features designed to transform the water-consuming experience at the office. The Skywell 100P and Skywell 100N are high-capacity units designed for both potable and non-potable usage. The company is planning to launch its air water technology to additional U.S. markets for the home and office in 2015.
Inspired by the global water crisis, as well as the one occurring in their own California backyards, Skywell’s founders have focused their entrepreneurial skills and experience to develop advanced air water technology with the mission of changing the way that people think about drinking water. In creating the company, their vision is to provide a socially responsible, environmentally friendly, healthy alternative to traditional drinking water sources, such as single-use plastics and 5-gal water delivery, while reducing their customers’ water footprints.
The technology draws ambient air into the unit, where it undergoes a process similar to the natural water cycle — moisture is collected and then purified using a multi-filter process, along with the introduction of ultraviolet and ozone exposure between storage and consumption. The system requires only a standard electrical outlet to operate and sits on four wheels so that it can be placed anywhere.
The Skywell 5T features an 8-in., high-resolution, interactive touchscreen that engages users with water temperature displays, water facts and stored water volume. It dispenses hot and cold water with customizable settings of 190°F to 200°F for hot water and approximately 37°F for cold water.
