Delray Beach, FL, December 13, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- SunDragon introduces solar thermal water purifiers for developing and war torn nations: quantities of fresh potable water fast, green, clean and cheap, with no electricity and only small space required.
SunDragon solar thermal water purification equipment produces pure water through the evaporative process. Evaporation is one of the few practical ways to remove impurities from water. The water in many countries suffers contamination of many types; however, salt and microbial contamination (E. coli, etc.) are the main culprits. SunDragon removes nitrates, chloride, salts, and microbiology.
SunDragon solar thermal water purification equipment uses FloVap (flowing water evaporators) technology to accelerate the vapor release of water. A single unit SunDragon solar water purifier makes 100 plus gallons per day. Requiring only a small physical footprint (approximately 150 square feet for a basic purification unit), SunDragon solar water purifiers can be set up in small clusters for the production of thousands of gallons of potable drinking water. The manual solar water purifiers require 2-4 persons a day to pump and dispense water for continuous operation.
There is a global shortage of good drinking water; over one billion people have a clean water problem. Waterborne disease outbreaks can be effectively dealt with by producing quantities of fresh potable water quickly. New technology in solar water purifiers and evaporators opens the door to small scale local solutions to the water shortage problem. Profitable, manually operated, high volume solar stills are the key to vendor distribution of purified drinking water.
While seawater reverse osmosis (SWRO) desalination plants cost over $100 million, a SunDragon solar water evaporative purification plant costs $10,000.00, creates employment for three people, generates cash flow quickly, and can be set up anywhere there is contaminated water and sunshine. For the same $100 million you could get 1000 vending operations employing 3000 people, and a lot of fresh water and cash flow. Smaller programs in $1-5 million range can seed an entire water system. Training is simple and the pictorial operations manual is easy to understand.
SunDragon solar technology and processes were developed in Florida; however, they are designed for the hotter equatorial climates where the water crisis is the most pressing. The projected market for SunDragon solar thermal water purification equipment products ranges from single units to multiple units up to 100 or more, with a worldwide demand for 1,000,000 units expected in the next decade.
