Team Vision for System-Level Design Phase
Our basic system level design was provided by our customer. The system will mostly be designed for ease of construction and also to allow modular additions.
Most of our concept generation will lie in the subsystem design and testing variables.
Specifications for water purification in Monroe county
can be found at NY
Health Website. Our selection of water sources will
change the items that we test for.
Getting our water purified to the listed specifications is one of our main goals.
Due to the proof of concept nature of this project, we will not be able to select a concept prior to testing. Rather, concept selection will be one outcome of our testing.
Our system design will be modular, so that we can interchange various electrode and reactor chamber designs to identify the most effective combination.
Our system will consist of the following components:
- Clean water storage tank
- Dirty water storage tank
- Electric water pump
- Vertical translucent tube
- Various pipe fittings
- Modular reaction chamber
- Modular electrode placement
- Ozone/PH/H2O2 sensors
- Power supply/function generator
Feasibility: Prototyping, Analysis, Simulation
The entire premise of this project is to demonstrate the feasibility of a pulsed-corona water purification system. Hence, this will be determined at the culmination of all testing and research.
