The EXTERMINATOR of Waterborne

Diseases in Rural Areas,

Emergencies and Disasters

world urgently needs sanitation of rural waters
World Urgently Needs Sanitation of Rural Waters
  • Waterborne epidemics start in rural areas
  • More and more contamination of water sources
  • Growing population..Growing Industries..Growing Agriculture = LESS DRINKING WATER
  • Better to prevent epidemics than to combat them

FACTS

slide6

People hauls and drinks water from contaminated rivers, rain ponds, shallow wells or buys it from tank trucks storing it in open containers

=

world facts
World Facts
  • 5 million people die each year from diseases transmitted through contaminated water
  • 50% of all hospitalizations in developing countries are from waterborne diseases
  • 80% of all illnesses in the developing world result from waterborne diseases
  • At any one time about 1 billion people are suffering from waterborne diseases
water is the most important need we have in life
WATER is the MOST important need we have in life
  • Emergencies are more and more frequent
  • Aid MUST go first to the basic = WATER
  • Not just provide water but SAFE drinking water
  • Diarrhea endemic in many countries
  • Cholera and hepatitis at the turn of the corner
  • Improving the water quality improves quality of life, and generate savings to the country
world rural areas reality

perspective
Perspective
  • Salt is inexpensive and abundant
  • SALT + SOLAR ENERGY + WATER = HEALTH
  • 2 lbs of salt can sanitize 160,000 lit of water and reach more than 5,000 people

COST $

LESS THAN US$ 3 CAN SANITIZE THE

WATER CONSUMED BY MORE THAN

10,000 PEOPLE

sustainability
SUSTAINABILITY
  • Generate more chlorine than needed for water sanitation. Bottle it and sell the excess to the community to generate funds for buying more salt…..

water sanitation capacities
WATER SANITATION CAPACITIES

AC5 Solar - 6 sun/hrs - 30,000 lit at 1ppm

AC25 Solar - 6 sun/hrs - 105,000 lit at 1ppm

AC50 - 20 hrs - 1 million lit at 1 ppm

AC100 - 20 hrs - 2 million lit at 1 ppm

AC200 - 20 hrs - 4 million lit at 1 ppm

dosing to disinfect water
Dosing to disinfect water
  • For 1 ppm: 1 to 6000 or 4 drops per lit
  • For 2 ppm: 1 to 3000 or 7 drops per liter
  • Best to measure residual at different times of year
  • Methods: Gravity, Pumps (AC or DC)
dosing to disinfecting water
Dosing to Disinfecting Water
  • For 1 ppm: 1 to 6000 or 4 drops per lit
  • For 2 ppm: 1 to 3000 or 7 drops per liter
installation room
Installation Room
  • Place P/S higher than reactor tank on a shelve
  • Place a division between P/S and reactor tank
  • Cross Ventilation to evacuate gases
  • Air direction from P/S  Tank
  • Good Illumination
  • Protect salt from humidity
  • Avoid metals in room – they will rust
electrical installation
Electrical Installation
  • Use a voltage stabilizer if necessary
  • Tighten the electrode terminals to P.S. with wrench (not by hand)
  • Never open the P/S “high voltage”
  • Do not overload circuit with other loads
  • Always use 3-wire plugs for grounding
brine preparation
Brine Preparation
  • Chose your formula and stick with it
  • Pre-mark salt volume in recipient
  • Pre-mark water level in reactor tank
  • Pre-dissolve salt ahead of time
  • Make satured brine (30%) and mix 1 to 10
  • Better to have 2 reactors –One in use other in process
brine preparation40
Brine Preparation
  • Strain water in a cloth if too dirty with debris or insects.
  • Wait until salt is totally dissolved
  • If salt is from seawater evaporation use 10% more than the indicated in formula to compensate for minerals other than ClNa
  • Use a lid with hole in the center for electrode alignment
process
Process
  • Introduce electrode with Power Supply off
  • Turn on P/S using timer switch
  • Do not remove electrode with P/S on
  • Do not use electrode as agitating paddle
end of process
End of Process

When Power Supply stops – The solution is ready to use as SODIUM HYPOCHLORITE at a concentration 0.6 % to 0.7 % (6000 to 7000 ppm)

maintenance
Maintenance
  • Pour white vinegar into recipient
  • Rinse electrode with water
  • Every 1-2 weeks place electrode into vinegar for 30 minutes
  • Rinse electrode with water
  • Electrode ready for another reaction
  • Can use hydrochloric acid at 5% Never stronger
  • Keep electrode in vinegar while not in use
  • Clean P/S with a dry cloth
maintenance precautions
Maintenance Precautions

qPower to the generating electrode must be off while the electrode is in the cleaning solution.

Rinse the generating electrode thoroughly with water after removal from the storage container and prior to immersion in the electrolysis tank.

- Never combine the cleaning solution with the sodium hypochlorite solution.

slide48

Operating Precautions

Do not smoke or have open flames close to the equipment.

Avoid contact of the solution with eyes or skin.  

Avoid the solution contacting clothes.  

Do not activate the transformer until the electrode is properly immersed in the brine solution.

Do not remove the electrode from the brine tank until the transformer has been deactivated. 

slide49

Installation Precautions

Place the power supply away from the vapors that escape from the process container (opposite direction of the predominant wind.)

Observe the necessary precautions with the electrical equipment. This system operates on 220 v and 50 Hz.

Make sure the available electrical supply conforms to the requirements of the transformer

slide50

Installation Precautions

  • Make sure the generating cell is properly connected. Reversing the polarity of the cell will permanently damage the electrode.
  • Locate the power supply away from the possibility of liquid spills.  
  • Hydrogen and chlorine gas are byproducts of hypochlorite generation. Install the system in a well-ventilated area, preferably with crossed ventilation for proper evacuation of hydrogen. 
  • - Tighten the nuts/screws that connect the electrode to the power supply snugly with the proper tool.
operating precautions
Operating Precautions

Do not operate the electrode longer than recommended. Doing so is wasteful and will eventually decrease the concentration of chlorine in the solution. 

The water used for the brine solution should be free of visible particles and solids. If necessary, this water should be strained with a coarse-cloth filter.
