Many around the globe especially those from developing nations need solutions to combat waterborne disease. Currently, the World Health Organisation states that worldwide around 1.1 billion people lack access to improved water sources and 2.4 billion have no basic sanitation. Therefore, what solution is available to ensure clean safe drinking water for these communities?

In recent years the rise in highly infectious water bourne diseases has increased as populations and communities expand or humanitarian efforts are called for in many parts of the globe. Filcon Filters has investigated many solutions and now are promoting an excellent solution. The product is the STREAM water disinfection system, which uses common salt to produce disinfectant.

STREAM makes water safe to drink by generating a continuous flow of disinfecting solution from common salt. The disinfectant destroys all classes of micro-organisms, including viruses, bacteria and protozoa. The system is ideal for small communities, disaster relief and humanitarian missions.

The STREAM is ideally suited to sterilize food preparation areas, hospitals or health clinics. It can also be used to sterilize areas after viral outbreaks like Ebola for example.

The system can treat up to 230 000 liters of any fresh water supply daily and only needs 0.07 kg/hr of salt. Therefore the system is a rapid and effective and economical solution as its only consumable is common salt.

The system is portable weighs just 8.2 kgs so it can be used on sites where space and portability are considerations. The unit is also very durable as it is encased in a high impact waterproof plastic case.

Optional brine and oxidant tanks are available and it can be operated using an optional solar panel package too.
