a closer look at the nine organs of the quencher

group 1 of 3


group 1 of 3 - 3 components - input tank / input filters / output tank - all made of resilient plastics


i) input water tank

ii) input removable washable filters

iii) output water tank, spigot, etc

all of these components are made of sturdy resilient long lasting plastics

while these components, molded right, cost more than the garden variety breakable plastics  we see in a zillion products, like any mass manufactured component, as the volumes go high, prices fall – especially when the raw material is plastic – cheap and abundant

we will design this group of components to the right dimensions and shapes, with their fittings (which we will keep to a minimum)

suffice it to say that there are no surprises in designing and mass manufacturing this group of 3 components cost effectively

group 2 of 3


group 2 of 3 - 2 components - single axis mechanical tracker / stand with levelers


iv) sturdy mechanical stand, with levelers

the design and manufacture of a stand is fairly straightforward

v) mechanical clock-work like wind-able single axis tracker

we will address this design separately

key is taking advantage of the robustness of the ‘time piece’ design

group 3 of 3

the heart of the quencher


group 3 of 3 - 4 components - absorber / evaporator / condenser and waste remover


vi) swallows-sunlight-and-heats-water absorber

vii) transforms-water-to-steam evaporator

viii) cools-clean-steam-to-pure-water condenser

the absorber-evaporator, or even the absorber-evaporator-condenser seems to me, is best designed as a unit, compact and heat-efficient

we will, of course, get into this design in quite some detail

ix) metal-grate-removes-residue-salts-etc waste remover

hardy, removable, bang-able cleanable durable
