Africa Water primary activity is to source for the water, purify the water using ultra modern techniques and equipment, packaging the treated water in safe bottles and finally distributing the ready product to their distributors in various regions within their target market regions.
Reuse and Recycling
AFRICA WATERAfrica water’s primary goal is to produce drinking water using our ultramodern purification technology. To make raw water safe for consumption, water purification is required to eliminate harmful chemicals, suspended solids, and physical contaminants. Most water is purified and disinfected for human consumption (drinking water), however, water may also be purified for a range of other applications, such as medical and industrial purposes. Before the water is provided to our homes, it should be purified as the raw water from most sources is not safe to drink directly, especially in rural areas. Without proper purification, you may be susceptible to harmful waterborne diseases. Our unique and innovative purification techniques assist in purifying raw water to make it suitable for human consumption.
What Makes Our System Unique?With the help of our expertise, we developed a purification system that can purify water more efficiently and faster than conventional systems. Our system applies a unique combination of purification methods, which is required to remove all harmful substances resulting in safe and delicious drinking water; for example, ultraviolet (UV) radiation is only effective for removing bacteria and viruses, while reverse osmosis (RO) can remove contaminants like metal ions. In short, the proposed water purification technology consists of five main processes:
I. Sediment Filtration
This pre-filter stage will strain out large particles such as sediment, matter, silt, and dirt. This filtration is especially important as the sediment filter protects dirt from getting to the delicate RO membranes, which could be easily damaged by sediment.
II. Carbon Filtration
Carbon filtering is a process that uses adsorption to remove impurities from a fluid using a layer of activated carbon. The carbon filter is designed to remove both large and small particles, such as chlorine, that affect the performance and life of the RO membrane. It also improves the taste and odor of water.
III. Reverse Osmosis Membrane
Reverse osmosis is one of the most advanced water purification methods. The RO system uses a semipermeable membrane that removes dissolved substances, such as chlorine, metal ions, nitrates, and pesticides, from the water – thereby making it safe for drinking. The filter easily removes different types of dissolved or suspended impurities by using pressure to force water molecules to pass through the semipermeable membrane. In this way, the physical impurities are collected on one side of the filter, while it does not allow to pass these impurities to the other side. During this process, the contaminants are filtered out, resulting in clean and delicious drinking water.
IV. Ultraviolet Purification
Ultraviolet purification is the most effective method to disinfect water. The system uses a high power UV lamp to kill harmful microorganisms (bacteria and viruses) and to eliminate the ability of microorganisms to reproduce. The system destroys >99% of the harmful microorganisms without adding chemicals and without affecting the taste and odor of water.
V. Polishing Filtration
This last step will “polish” off the water to remove any remaining undesired taste and odor, and to ensure that the water is of the highest possible level of purity. At this state, any other contaminant that might have escaped all the other stages of filtration are removed.
