PROtector Design

Whether you are interested a humanitarian program, a water vending kiosk or a commercial water treatment system, PROtector Treatment Systems will work with you to design and build the optimal system for your application.

Step One: Choosing a Water Source

Step Two: Selecting a Method of Power

Our system designers will work with you to determine which power method is best suited to your application. We consider technical factors such as the properties of your source water and the required treatment capacity, as well as cultural and operational factors such as who will be using the system and where it will be located. Hybrid designs which incorporate multiple power methods are also possible. For example you could have an electric system that is powered by the mains supply, but has a manual backup function for use during power cuts.

Step Three: Determining the Optimal Treatment Process

Once the quality analysis of the source water and your preferred method of power have been established, our system designers will use computer modelling to compare the efficiency of different water filtration and treatment methods. The final design of your system will consist of a treatment process that has been optimized for your application.

PROtector Filtration and Treatment Methods
  • Ceramic Filtration

  • Nanofiltration (NF)

  • Ultrafiltration (UF)

  • Rreverse Osmosis (RO)

  • Activated Carbon

  • Ultraviolet sterilisation (UV)

Started the Design Process

Starting the PROtector design process is easy. Simply email us a brief description of your proposed application and we'll schedule a time to talk with you on the phone or via Skype. The design process takes two-three weeks. Once the design is finalized we will send you a quotation for your PROtector system. There is no charge for our design service, so what are you waiting for?

The Problem

According to the UN, water-related diseases are the leading cause of death in the world, taking the lives of more than 6,000 people every day. Such diseases are contracted from drinking unsafe, contaminated water in locations where adequate treatment Woman in Flood Pumping Wateris either unpractical or unaffordable. The total number of people around the globe without sustainable access to safe drinking water currently stands at over 1 billion - a shocking figure which equals one sixth of the world's population. Whilst the common consensus is to dig wells and drill boreholes, the extracted water is often brackish (salty) due to having a high mineral content – and in many parts of the world, groundwater contains harmful 'dissolved' contaminants such as fluoride and arsenic. Furthermore, boreholes, wells and underground storage tanks are prone to contamination from surface run off, sewage and seawater - especially in the wake of a storm, flood, earthquake or other natural disaster.

The Solution

PROtector water purification systems are able to extract and treat water directly from boreholes, wells, streams, rivers and lakes. Each system is custom designed and configured to treat water from a specific source, ensuring that the maximum amount of water is produced for the minimum amount of energy expended. Our system designers utilize ceramic, nano, ultra and reverse osmosis filtration to remove contaminants such as silt, colloidal particles, bacteria, viruses, protozoa, cysts, metals, fluoride and arsenic. We are also able to produce systems that reduce salt from brackish water sources to safe and palatable levels.
