P12412: UV Water Treatment Safety Valve/public/
|Project Summary||Project Information|
Project Background:There currently exists a low cost UV Water Treatment system developed by students at UC Berkeley. The system allows for rural communities in Mexico and Sri Lanka to obtain clean, safe water at a low cost for families. However a system that stops contaminated water from coming in contact with the decontaminated water when certain failures occur does not exist. The major goal of this project is to implement this function into existing UV treatment kiosks, as well as into kiosks that will be built in the future. The failures which can occur include power outage, UV bulb failure, broken filament, and power brown out. The design must include few consumable parts, and must be easy and inexpensive to install and maintain. The mechanism designed should be able to be retrofitted into existing water treatment kiosks as well as used in newly built kiosks.
Mission Statement:The primary objective of this design is to prevent any contaminated water from entering into a tank of water that has already been decontaminated by the UV water treatment unit. The product should sense a failure and stop the flow of the contaminated water until the failure has been found and fixed.
