Distilled Water Treatment Plant

05/05/2017 5:54 AM

Hi All,

Good day !!

I'm trying to pull plant setup information of Distilled water treatment plant. But unable to find it in India. (complete set up which includes machines , packaging) Some online information is there but searching for complete.

Could you please suggest.

Regards,

Pranav

<...please suggest...> how the forum could actually help, given a complete absence of any information on this plant (rhetorical question - NNTR)?

Given that all the information is being withheld from the forum apart from the country in which either the plant or the original poster is located, then how about a with the original plant manufacturer in the first instance (rhetorical question - NNTR)?

Don't . It's a complete waste of time.

Use the instead. Use the to find out why no is available for the equipment and, if necessary, for a replacement.

Sorry mate. The green "GO" button is not functioning, could you re-write the macro please?

Red card? Really, that is bad cricket.

For a complete setup: Lyn-Door® Industries may have what you are looking for, an item called the "Solar Tarpaulin with condenser"

1. Obtain item from Lyn-Door® Industries, by selecting item on the webpage (Lyn's Facebook page, or Doorman's instant msg account on this forum, enter the qty. desired, and insert bit coins in the floopy drive slot of your computer.

2. Your shipment arrives in about 57 weeks, depending on attitude, elevation, and promulgation.

3. Dig a round hole in the ground, making a mound in the middle.

4. Place tin cup on mound.

5. Cover hole with "Solar Tarpaulin with condenser" with the dark side up, and the shiny side down, you will note the shiny side only exists in the central area like a bullseye.

6. Place dirt row covering on the edges of the STWC item, thus sealing over the hole. Leave one small space open for now.

7. Place supplied tubing length through the opening, and down to the bottom of the hole. Attach funnel. Place "urinal" sign over the funnel. Now you have a never ending supply of moisture being added to the distillation process. You may of course wish to acquire some charcoal, bleach, hydrogen peroxide, or other materials useful for sanitizing the item.

8. Place charcoal only at the outlet of the tubing for odor control, replace hourly if so desired.

9. If area selected does not reside in full sunlight for most of the daylight hours, then return to step 1 after selecting a new site to dig the hole. You may make the hole any size, but it works better when the hole radius is approximately 80% the radius of the STWC.

10. Place a small, smooth round stone (not a flat one, silly man) at the center point marked on the STWC upper side, as this helps the condenser also act as a condensate collector.

11. Dig a side tunnel that is easily blocked by a large stone, but not too small for cup retrieval. You will need to make a cup retrieval tool, not provided in kit, but is LD® Ind. part # PRKSTK-1803458a-1L, designed to retrieve a 1 L cup. If your cup is only 300 mL, do not use that part, but use #PRKSTK-1803458b-.3L (unfortunately 3 times the price of the 1 L items due to low demand).

12. After about a week, you should have for yourself, a "fresh" 1 L cup full of drinkable water, but be sure and use the anti-cholera tablets you previously ordered under LD®-Ind. Part # YSYD-11111.222a.actnow.3. Otherwise, you should boil the water, and make tea with it, and be sure to properly pronounce your tee in the word tea, or it might sound like "pee".

13. All water recovered by the Lyn-Door® STWC should be clear, not turbid, colorless, unless tea leaves were added to the tin cup ahead of time, and reasonably odorless. There is no sanitary guarantee, unless the full precautions were taken.

14. Full precautions: Recover any condensate from the STWC after partial precautions prevailed periodically pervasively, and with prejudice against organisms. Raise the tin cup, and offer it as a praise to Dog, then discard the contents. Rinse and refill the tin cup from the nearest water faucet.

15. Deluxe package: In lieu of the tin cup, silver cup item # YHGTBKM-18181818382.44331z is available for 10 times the value of the silver plated onto a tin cup, 1L as discussed in the previous sections. Please calculate, based upon a 0.05 mm plating thickness of silver for a cup of the usual dimensions, and remit your bit coin into the slot of your computer for future reference. Silver cup is guaranteed to contain liquid after the plating process, and will remove harmful organisms provided the organism count is 1/L of dead organism, but no cfu count is allowed.

Do you have a heat or energy source? What volume of production are you targeting? How much startup capital do you have? What is your available footprint? Do you have a water source?

While good, it is small-ish, and lack all the accouterments of the one from Lyn-Door® Industries. Add to that the inconvenient need to disrupt the sheet every time a sip of water is wanted.

I think the covering need to maximize absorption of radiation, or rather minimize reflectivity of the same, perhaps it is the ground in the hole that needs a good dose of crushed charcoal to improve heating and vapor production by wicking moisture out of the soil.

At any rate. If our friend in India really wants a distilled water plant, we need to know what scale he is talking about, since we might need to specify one class of nuclear reactor heat source over another.

He should be thinking about something as lovely as membrance capacitive deionization. Only takes low (0.5-1.5V) potential, but needs considerable amperage, depending on TDS of the water source. Tolerates chlorine quite well, thank you.

We (CR4 members) don't need to know anything at all about the scale of operation, efficiency, budget, purity or anything at all about local codes. The OP certainly should know these things, I have faith in their capabilities to know what is relevant. (Wait for it.) Their capabilities led them to us to answer what machines were needed for the distillation of water without knowing any of those pesky details because obviously somebody here knows more about distilling water than the OP.

I presented that no machines were needed at all to distill water. Machines are needed only when this system does not meet an unstated criteria. The OP came here to find somebody, anybody that knew more about distilling water. I do.

In agree in part with your answer, but plastic sheeting requires several machines, not the least of which is the delivery truck. Never mind the machines that make the plastic, the shovel making machine, and the tin cup assembly plant (that is machine unto itself).

I suppose he could try using spider webs, tree gum, plant leaves (such as the large leaves off some tropical zone plants), etc. and dig while using a clam shell for a tool.

At the most basic level what is needed in principle for water distillation "plant"?

1. Heat source

2. Cooking vessel to contain the water and direct the steam.

3. Some form of condenser (surface or surfaces).

4. Receiver vessel for the product distilled water.

From your posts in 2014.....

Hi Team ,

I'm Mechanical Engg. ,i'm trying to start my own business in Manufacturing area.

Basically i'm from India.Please provide your view on.In manufacturing , trying startup business ( low budget & long term > will expand in future).Request to all please provide your valuable suggestions.I have experience in automative field.

Is this the business you are still working on?

Exactly at what stage of business development are you actually at?

How large a plant are we talking about (Litres/hr, staff, budget, etc)?

Have you hired anyone to help you? Seriously, professional help like actual water treatment Engineers or managers to help set up a start-up company for you.

He should give up and look at marketing membrane capacitive deionization systems. Those actually work, and a low-voltage solar panel would provide all the needed power.
