Turn Air Into H2o At Dwelling Inwards Banglore 2015

- February 04, 2018
The response to Bengaluru's H2O crisis, it seems, is blowing inwards the wind. Researchers at the city-based Scalene Energy Research Institute (SERI) direct maintain developed a Rain Tunnel - a applied scientific discipline that harnesses H2O vapour inwards the air too converts it into drinking water.

And It Will Be Sold Commercially From Next Month!


Available for domestic every bit good every bit commercial purpose 1 time production begins adjacent month, the old is capable of producing xxx litres of clean, filtered, drinking H2O inside 24 hours. The commercial setup volition arrive at a 1,000 litres inwards the same menses of time. Influenza A virus subtype H5N1 plug-and-use model for domestic purpose volition cost Rs 50-55,000.

Work on the Rain Tunnel began 4 years agone at SERI, a 24-year-old organisation that does question inwards healthcare; energy; H2O too food. The applied scientific discipline was besides patented close 1 too a one-half years ago.



A 1 cubic feet box draws inwards the air amongst an air circulator, which is thence passed through a PM 2.5 microns filter "to take away the particulate affair too pollution," Kumar explains. Next step: UV, to kill all the airborne bacteria too viruses. Then, the temperature, push clitoris per unit of measurement area too stream charge per unit of measurement is adjusted (depending on the atmospheric push clitoris per unit of measurement area of the location) to create an atmosphere suitable to agglomerate the H2O vapour to shape clouds, "just similar it takes identify inwards nature," Kumar explains, quest us to intend of a cloudy day. "Doesn't the humidity rising too air push clitoris per unit of measurement area autumn earlier it rains?" This is where the Rain Tunnel is unique - it uses hypersonic audio waves to precipitate the concentrated H2O vapour. "We direct maintain a modest quantity of seed H2O too discipline it to a few 1 G k cycles of high frequency sound. This breaks them downwardly too generates nano H2O particles, which nosotros thence freeze into H2O ice crystals." Nano crystals don't require a really frigidity to freeze. The resultant nano H2O ice crystals, every bit per the belongings of ice, get down to absorb to a greater extent than H2O vapour, too swell. "And the bigger they get, they lose that property, get down to melt into water, which falls every bit pelting too is collected inwards a drip tray too into a tank. It thence passes through 4 stages of filtration - sediment filtering, carbon filtering, ultra filtering at .04 microns too UV exposure - from which it is sent to the dispenser. As people describe H2O from the dispenser, to a greater extent than H2O is instantaneously filtered too sterlised too makes its means in."
Once the machine is plugged into an electrical socket too switched on, inside 10-15 hours, it starts dispensing water. "And 1 time the dry out air - from which the H2O vapour has been removed - is permit out, it volition absorb to a greater extent than H2O too the cycle continues," Kumar adds, describing how 1 litre of H2O removed volition arrive at roughly other litre too thence on.

Application too Benefits




While in that location volition hold out a marginal departure inwards the speed at which the H2O is generated depending on the atmospheric humidity inwards dissimilar places, it volition run at whatever identify where in that location is fifty-fifty 10 ppm (parts per 1 G k or 10 ml per 1,000 ml of water) of H2O vapour inwards the atmosphere.
Dr Kumar lists the pros - from purity to a higher PH level. That of groundwater, he says, is 6.7/6.3. "This has come upwards direct from the atmosphere too is uncontaminated yesteryear the soil. With bottled water, you lot don't know the beginning or what procedure it has undergone. And UV too RO filtering tin filter out everything else except pesticide too fertiliser residue. Sometimes, groundwater is besides contaminated yesteryear substances such every bit arsenic, nitrite too heavy metals. RO alone brings downwardly TDS (Total Dissolved Solids) too removes tabular array salt content, it doesn't take away these huge molecules, spell UV filtering removes alone bacteria."
While the cost tin appear high, Dr Kumar believes that it genuinely cuts cost over the years - 0.56 per litre over 24 hours every bit per domestic consumption patterns too the usage too cost of electricity at home. "It's convenient because it doesn't demand anything other than electricity, too removes the possibility of waterborne diseases. In rural areas, a machine that tin brand 10,000 litres of water, which is equal to 1 inch of rain, tin resolve the work of walking huge distances to fetch water."
Available for domestic every bit good every bit commercial purpose 1 time production begins adjacent month, the old is capable of producing xxx litres of clean, filtered, drinking H2O inside 24 hours. The commercial setup volition arrive at a 1,000 litres inwards the same menses of time. Influenza A virus subtype H5N1 plug-and-use model for domestic purpose volition cost Rs 50-55,000.

V Balasubramanian, old Additional Chief Secretary of Karnataka too Chairman, Centre for Policies too Practices, had conducted an elaborate written report of the H2O woes of the solid soil capital. The lab results at the Public Health Institute, too the Department of Mines too Geology of the Karnataka authorities had buttressed his findings:
*52 per cent of borewell H2O too 59 per cent of tap H2O inwards Bengaluru is non potable
*They incorporate 8.4 per cent too nineteen per cent E.coli bacteria respectively
*The groundwater inwards at to the lowest degree one-half of Bengaluru is contaminated amongst sewage water.

Facts
Earlier Bengaluru was abode to of 800-odd lakes.
Today, alone close 200 lakes remain.
Bengaluru is 3,000 feet inwards a higher identify ocean level.
So, H2O has to hold out pumped upwards yesteryear 100 km.
This makes Bengaluru's H2O the costliest inwards all of Republic of Republic of India too Asia at Rs 82 per kilolitre, vs Rs 28 per kilolitre inwards Delhi
Approximately 509 1 G k litres of this H2O goes waste product every hateful solar daytime because of our bad distribution network
The groundwater is over-exploited yesteryear to a greater extent than than 150 per cent
Average depth of borewells inwards areas such every bit Marathahalli, Sarjapur, HSR Layout is close 1,200 feet too is going deeper.
