Drinking water everywhere and for everyone
The principle is simple: a microfiltration, a UV lamp and a solar panel.
You just have to fill the tank with the water1 you wish to disinfect. The water is filtered and disinfected using ultraviolet light (UV-C). In a few seconds the water is fit to be consumed for vital requirements.
Terminal with plastic housing, rugged and hard-wearing
• Height: 120 cm
• Length: 60 cm
• Width: 40 cm
• Weight : 100 kg
Solar panel (for the basic version, without pump): 53 cm x 120 cm
Zeolite filter (very effective technology, for its quality and filter rating)
The sizing is suitable for the sunshine levels and conditions of use in the zones concerned.
The power of the UV reactor has been calculated to be able to treat the equivalent of 500 litres/hour with 400 J/m², which represents the dose required to make water drinkable in all the developed countries.
Due to its photovoltaic power supply, this terminal has been designed to operate for approximately 4 hours/day, and therefore to have a run time of approximately 3 days and supply about a hundred persons with 25 litres of water each daily, the vital requirements defined by the WHO.
Filling the tank –
Following the lie of the land, it may be made in different ways:
Powered by solar energy BIO-SUN has three days of run time, corresponding to the production of 6m3 of water.
WHO recommendations set drinking water requirements at 25 l per day per person.
BIO-SUN provides 2m3 of drinking water per day and can therefore meet the daily requirements of 80 to 100 persons.
 the water used must not be heavily polluted by large quantities of sludge nor must it contain high levels of pesticide-type residues or high concentrations of other contaminants such as heavy metals and/or organic matter
