Abstract : The patent relates to an apparatus for collecting fog water which consists of a slotted stainless steel rotable tube. The tube is rotated and fog droplets are collected by impaction on the tube. Centrifugal force causes the water to flow outward toward the ends of the tube where it is collected in small vials.
