Providing safe drinking water to the world is a challenge in today’s polluted environment. Chemical treatment has been used for quite some time now to kill pathogens and make water drinkable. But, now water professionals are finding new methods that are less expensive, more reliable and more sustainable. Cavitation Technologies, Inc. has found a new process that includes mechanical and electrical systems to blow the little bugs to smithereens.
The equipment developed by the company is called the CaviGulation that combines solar energy or other sustainable power sources to clean water. It delivers up a complex set of reactions based on kinetic energy, chemical, electro-chemical, and hydrodynamic principles. It has a reactor through whose chambers water passes and microorganisms are shattered into pieces. The system is certainly better than chemical treatment as it practically wipes out the carbon footprint involved in manufacturing, transporting and administering chemicals
