A cloth impregnated with seawater is wedged between two frames on which transparent sheets have been stretched. Thanks to the sun and two reflectors made with a cover of survival, the water of the fabric will evaporate then come to trickle on the baches, while the salt will remain trapped by the fabric. The desalinated water flows down the frames and is collected in a can with two pipes. At the bottom of the frames, waterproofness is essential to the proper functioning of the desalinator.

Desert fridge - light version
A traditional zeerpot (or desert fridge) made with terra cotta pots quickly becomes heavy and difficult to carry around. The version presented here is a lighter and less expensive variant, feasible with materials that can be more easily found. The envelope is made out of fabric. The container can be in plastic, metal or any other sand-proof material. This container can be closed with a plug/cover or a fabric.
