Water Recycling – CTi’s Technology to Improve Society’s Capacity for Water Reuse
Turning Water Into Gold
Current regulations and practices for water management are becoming more restrictive and water treatment services are becoming more regulated. The growing needs of man are in turn making it vital that a more long-term solution to cater to the hydrological needs of the increasing population growth is found. Water recycling will be a must, as evidence of shortages across the globe, but a viable technological solution will need to be procured.
Cavitation technology through CTi nanotech is that solution.
The problem with many practices today is that they are for an immediate result, without contemplation of the aftermath. This has led to the wasting of many resources, but none more valuable than water. One example is the fracking industry, where there are millions of barrels of water wasted every day, with wells ever-growing wider and deeper. The wastewater produced in processes such as these possesses the extreme potential to have the script re-written—utilizing and reusing the precious resource of water. From treating water produced by mining outfits to turning wastewater into a resource to areas in society that could utilize the remediated water—CTi nanotech can help start to quench global water shortages.
Taking the Waste out of Waste Water
The effectiveness of water disinfection by direct electrolysis is several times higher compared to chemical methods. Direct electrolysis of water helps to remove chromaticity, hydrogen sulfide, ammonium of the source water. Direct electrolysis destroys chloramines, converting them into nitrogen and salt.
Disinfection of water by direct electrolysis is a kind of oxidative treatment of water but is fundamentally different from the common methods of disinfection in that the oxidizers are made from the water itself, and are not introduced from the outside and, having fulfilled its function, go back to the previous state.
Chlorine, which is necessary to prevent secondary bacterial contamination of water in distribution networks, is activated from natural mineral salts in water passing through the electrolyzer and instantly dissolves in it.
The difference between “direct electrolysis” and “production and accumulation of sodium hypochlorite” is that the use of special electrodes makes it possible to produce ozone and hydrogen peroxide from water.
During direct electrolysis, when the source water passes through the electrolyzer, oxidizers such as oxygen, ozone, hydrogen peroxide, sodium hypochlorite are synthesized, instantly showing their oxidative properties.
The process uses high quality industrial mixed metal oxides (MMOs) anodes for both oxygen and chlorine evolution to address needed quality of water and the specific needs of the customers.
Cavitation and Water Purification system is Capable of Removing the Following:
- heavy metals
- Complex organics
- Viruses and cysts
- Suspended and colloidal solids
CTI maximizes the reuse of resource materials, slashes transportation and disposal costs, and mitigates the associated liabilities. What is more, operating costs can be dramatically reduced. The decrease in produced sludge can reach 60% when compared to conventional chemical treatment methods. Cavitation is an engine that is highly efficient and can help energize a paradigm shift that needs to take place in water management.
Benefits of Cavitation and water electrolysis
The simultaneous action of hydrodynamic cavitation, nano bubbles aeration and Electrooxidation formed in situ provide a unique synergistic effect that results in a highly efficient purification process.
- Cavitation with nano bubble aeration, and water electrolysis is the most effective technologies for the treatment of waters containing soluble organic compounds, can directly and indirectly oxidize small organic pollutants.
Let’s break down the benefits of cavitation in water treatment by category:
- Low power requirements
- Low capital and maintenance costs
- Minimal operator attention
- Mitigated expenses with no chemical additions
- Fewer materials and material replacements needed
- Consistent and reliable results
- Naturally recycles water
- Less wasted resources
- Less harmful chemicals in the environment
- Tolerance to a wide variation in the waste stream, leading to less discharge
