AcquaSmart system schematic diagram

: A clean sustainable solution to provide clean drinking water to remote areas.

The system results in the lowest cost of production of drinking water meeting WHO standards. The system can be used to provide bottled water in recyclable plastic bottles to remote village households at an affordable price.

Regen is also able to combine power and water supply- in which case most of the water pumping and treatment will occur during the sunshine hours. The battery storage requirement will be minimised in order to cut down on the capital cost.

Pre-Treatment System

Reverse Osmosis System (RO)

Ultra-Violet and Ozone Sterilisation

solar perthThe sterilization system consists of Ozone actuator and a Ultraviolet (UV) tube. UV treatment of water inactivates pathogenic micro-organisms that cause E-coli, cholera, typhoid, dysentery and hepatitis.

Ozone treatment is also able to remove organic and inorganic material, iron, manganese and sulphur. This is secondly used for the disinfection of the pipelines between treatment and the delivery nozzle.

Ozone will oxidize and decompose the enzyme which can form the glucose to maintain bacteria. The ozone actuator can ionize air to produce ozone which is further mixed with water through Venturi ejector. By using these sterilisation techniques together, we ensure highest water quality.

Automatic Control & Monitoring System

The control & monitoring system implements the function of start, operation, stop, control, display, fault alarm and safety protection of each pump and some of the valves according to the system working principle. Safety, reliability and high efficiency is guaranteed, and the latest technologies of PLC control, touch screen and network communication are provided

Trailer Mounted Housing

solar panel perthThe complete system is compactly mounted on a trailer which can be towed by a pick up truck to any convenient location. Having all of the electrical power and water treatment equipment located in one trailer makes the system operational instantly and there is no need to gather and organize additional supplies.

Water from rivers, lakes, floods, broken water mains and most freshwater sources can be purified into clean and safe drinking water making it ideal for remote areas.
