THE FUTURE OF HIGH QUALITY, HIGH VOLUME SEAWATER DESALINATION SYSTEMS

It is no secret that with rapid industrial and population growth occurring on a global basis, traditional land-based potable water supplies are simply being "tapped out" and serious business investors, countries, local municipalities and industrial entrepreneurs are becoming increasingly concerned about the viability of their current projects.

Investors are also concerned about the wisdom of future industrial investments that would require substantially larger and sustainable volumes of high quality, process water.

Additionally, virtually every day the cable networks carry news of another natural disaster or environmental catastrophe which further endangers both the population and the industrial base's productivity and, in many cases, basic survivability.

When survivors of a Tsunami in Sumatra, a hurricane in the US Gulf Coast or in the Caribbean or victims of an earthquake in Mexico or the Middle East have to wait for days to obtain potable water, then new, operationally flexible and mobile technologies need to be placed strategically around the globe by both the private and public sectors to quickly and decisively deal with such humanitarian needs.

In short, the system being deployed to the stricken area cannot be compromised by the degree of contamination that would be encountered on site. The system must be a turnkey operation capable of processing non-potable water containing the widest and most intense levels of contamination imaginable and rapidly turning out purified drinking, utility and medical grade water without skipping a beat.

While it gathers little national press coverage, day-to-day water quality in remote villages stretching from the coastal areas of Alaska to central Africa in many cases is so poor that school children are relegated to drink soft drinks instead of clean and wholesome water. This is not a healthy situation nor does it provide an optimistic view of what the legacy of the current generation will have to deal with.

Work forces in many areas of the world, ranging from the desolate steppes of the former Soviet Union to the vast interior agricultural and industrial areas of China are being endangered due to industrial, agricultural and human pollution of local water supplies. The productivity and basic survival of these vital industrial infrastructures is clearly threatened when the health of the basic work force is placed at risk because of the lack of one simple but vitally important commodity - pure and fresh drinking water.

Seeing potential solutions to these several problems, forward-looking entrepreneurs in the past have cast their eye to membrane-based (reverse osmosis) processing of seawater or have even considered recycling of contaminated, land-based water resources as potential solutions.

A whole host of membrane technology solutions have been developed and tested. And, while significant progress has been made in the membrane technology arena, that approach continues to hit the wall when confronted with life cycle costing, consistency of water quality and maintenance issues.

Repeated and highly anticipated success using reverse osmosis membrane solutions typically ends up in a technical or cost effectiveness failure when confronted with the above issues. In short, reverse osmosis has ended up in the proverbial technology ditch when confronted with practical, long-term application in difficult water environments.

Even earlier generations of distillation systems have consistently failed to perform for any reasonable period of time due to corrosion of key components (boilers, heat exchangers, etc.) as well as scaling of metallic surfaces throughout the various stages of the distillation process.

With the possible exception of selected, multi-hundred million dollar flash distillation desalination systems scattered around the Persian Gulf, the best distillation minds and technologies have failed to produce a mobile, high quality, long life, low maintenance, high volume, commercial grade desalination system to meet the needs discussed above.

ALL OF THIS HAS NOW CHANGED!

*****************

ABOUT OUR TECHNOLOGY

Our Corporate objectives are as follows:

Produce large volumes of consistently high quality drinking and medical-grade water from corrosive seawater sources (or worse).

Create a desalination design which would require an absolute minimal amount of either routine or failure mode maintenance.

Completely eliminate conventional chemical-based clean-in-place (CIP) and flushing processes - and the additional chemical waste materials created by such processes.

Provide a capability to deal with not only highly corrosive seawater ranging up to 55,000 parts per million (PPM) total dissolved solids(TDS); but create a technology which can reach far beyond these levels and deal with waste water issues that are far more corrosive than sea water and exhibit TDS levels which may exceed 350,000 PPM

Create a desalination system which completely eliminates all internal corrosion or scaling of internal system parts (pumps, metal encasements, heating and cooling apparatus, connecting piping, etc) at not only seawater TDS levels but at levels in the multi-hundred thousand TDS ranges.

Create a desalination system which can independently or simultaneously produce "utility", "bottled water quality" or "medical/industrial grade" water. No need for expensive or complex "add-ons"; our multi-functional desalination system produces all of these valuable water qualities individually or collectively in volumes up to 200,000 US gallons per day.

Create a desalination system whose recovery rates which, when applied to sea or land-based water desalination or waste problems, are in the 85-95 percentile rather than having to live with conventional reverse osmosis recovery rates in difficult cleanup environments that are 30 percent or less and where the system can never "catch up" with the original waste water stream.

 

 

 

OUR DISTILLATION-BASED

DESALINATION SOLUTION

PURIFIED WATER IN FULL COMPLIANCE WITH UNITED STATES PUBLIC HEALTH(USPHS) AND WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION(WHO) DRINKING WATER REGULATIONS

USPHS and WHO drinking water regulations are the gold standards by which the performance of any water treatment or purification system is measured.

The advanced seawater desalination/distillation system described here will meet and exceed these standards when operating on any seawater source.

Additionally, industrial or medical grade water can be produced by these systems without the need for "polishing" by deionization or other ionic material removal systems and the resultant need for frequent, costly and inconvenient regeneration of those post-processing technologies.

A GUARANTEED MINIMUM OF 75,000 to 200,000 US GALLONS PER 24 HOURS PER DESALINATION MODULE

 

PRODUCE HIGH QUALITY PURIFIED WATER AT A RECURRING ENERGY COST FAR LESS THEN THAT AVAILABLE BY WAY OF CONVENTIONAL MEMBRANE TECHNOLOGIES.

Suffice it to say that the production costs of desalinate seawater with our new distillation-based system will be at most half of that experienced by the most advanced membrane/reverse osmosis systems being developed and deployed today. That low cost is BEFORE we apply additional energy conservation processes to the existing design.

Membrane technologists have reached the practical limit of pump electrical and membrane separation efficiencies. As they attempt to push this technical boundary further, they enter an area of substantial operational risk, something our new desalination technology is impervious to.

Risky technologies such as these membrane approaches can be a heart breaker when they are located in remote locations and experience major breakdowns due to the technology envelope being pushed too far. We just don't go there...

On the surface, this cost saving may seem to be the most important aspect of our new technology. It is to a certain degree. However, the anti-scale and anti-corrosion characteristics of our proprietary coating technology described below is the real cost saver.

A DESALINATION SYSTEM WHICH WILL HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO COMPONENT SCALING OR CORROSION

Our unique and proprietary, one-time metal coating process will provide a multi-year, maintenance-free operational profile for this tough-as-nails system.

Simultaneously, component replacement costs nearly vanish due to the absence of scaling which can be caused by salts, caustic or acidic chemicals, bacteria or organisms naturally occurring in the ocean which love to cling to metal surfaces. Life-cycle-costs will be reduced to surprisingly low levels.

Many companies have searched for such a solution but again and again are moved to the back of the technology but when it is determined that their coating processes requires frequent and costly replacement due to constant degradation not only of the coatings but also due to the resultant corrosion and destruction of the underlying metallic surfaces.

This scale and surface protection technology will be truly a game changer for desalination and the entire spectrum of waste water processing, as well as any project where corrosive, high temperature materials or scale accumulation is a problem.

How many of you Navy folks out there remember being sent down to the "boiler" area in the ship or submarine, armed with a chisel and hammer to de-scale the distillation system from seawater salts and chemicals?

Want to be a hero with your commanding officer? Have him give us a call - your water-maker de-scaling shipmates will thank you!

HIGH RECOVERY AND LOW ENERGY CONSUMPTION RATES

It is a well-established fact that even the most efficient double-pass membrane technologies can barely squeeze out a 30-35 percent recovery rate when dealing with average seawater conditions. Try putting that same technology to work on dissolved solid levels which exceed sea water and watch that low recovery rate drop even further, provided the system does not go belly up when faced with these higher, corrosive levels of dissolved salts and chemicals.

Existing membrane technology energy consumption rises with increasing seawater salt concentrations and membrane clogging. Their pumping systems work harder and self-destruct sooner under these more stressful conditions. Resultant energy costs then become an unpleasant and unexpected surprise.

By comparison, our new distillation-based desalination system will provide 85-90% recovery without breaking a sweat. With our special surface coatings and special water handling processes, automated internal sea salt waste water recycling within the desalination system can optionally increase that recovery percentage to the mid 90% range. And, the energy consumption of our system will remain low and flat since both water purity and scaling are fully under control of the advanced surface coating process.

Fast forward to several hundred thousand parts per million in waste water treatment --- the reverse osmosis membrane system is a complete no-show while the distillation based desalination unit will hum right along, once again without any scaling, no metallic corrosion and no measurable increase in energy consumption or reduction in output water purity.

SYSTEM OPERATION TO MINUS 70 DEGREES FAHRENHEIT

Seawater or brackish water desalination problems are not always confined to the temperate climate zones. Clients are lining up to use this technology in some of the worst weather conditions one could imagine, short of a scary Hollywood movie.

Our special insulation systems will keep the interior of the desalination system enclosures at shirt-sleeve conditions while outside a 50 mile per hour wind may bring the effective wind chill down to -70 deg F(-56 degrees C).

54yt

The use of the new desalination technology will find numerous uses in areas such as Alaska where the permafrost traps subterranean clean water far under the surface while surface water contamination cannot permeate the permafrost and therefore has no place to go.

This acrid soup that is present near the surface is all that some villages and their school children, medical facilities and utility providers have to offer the local population. Children carry soft drinks around instead of wholesome water. Here in the lower 48 states, we would not even think of flushing out toilets with such water.

Our new technology will usher in a whole new era of clean water for areas such as these, eliminating chemicals and biological contaminants and providing a better quality of life, now unfortunately foreshadowed simply by the lack of pure drinking water.

TRANSPORTABLE AND RAPID-DEPLOYMENT CAPABILITY

The Katrina hurricane, the Haiti, Chile and Iranian earthquakes plus the Sumatra tsunami were supposed to be wake up calls for us where survivors desperately waited for days for some pure drinking water. Emergencies rarely provide a suitable forewarning while communities and countries normally take precious days to react to such situations.

Combined with an advanced, optional, high efficiency, long-life and low carbon footprint diesel generator, the combined water desalination/purification and power train can provide a turnkey, rapid deployment capability which will be capable of being operational within an hour of hitting the ground. At 200,000 US gallons of drinking and medical grade water per 24 hours per module, this system will achieve a performance plateau that prior technologies simply cannot reach.

When the next cyclone hits the Bangladesh coastline, remember that the raw sewage and biological hazards present in hundreds of square miles of submerged housing can be rapidly and safely converted into life-saving water with our new distillation-based desalination system.

REMOTE MONITORING AND CONTROL OF SYSTEM OPERATIONS

Advanced digital hardware, software and "fuzzy logic" control systems will monitor critical operational parameters throughout the system and then store the key information locally on conventional flash cards and periodically transmit these data to a remote monitoring facility for analysis and record keeping.

Remote diagnostic capabilities will be provided by way of wireless or satellite links and allow technicians to evaluate the need for on-site visits for scheduled, preventative or reparative maintenance.

Technicians who visit the site will be able to access archival performance information from the on-board computer and data storage system; read it out into a hand-held data retrieval system and then conduct necessary service and conduct post-repair diagnostics to ensure that the system is once again operating in accordance with factory specifications.

OPTIONAL, MATCHED POWER PLANT

Our 200,000 US GPD desalination systems will require between 550 and 600 KW of power. We will be able to connect to your conventional power grid or we will be able to provide an optional, high efficiency, long-life(150,000 operating hours) containerized diesel generator which will meet future carbon footprint and NOX exhaust regulations.

The standard-sized, optional power plant will produce approximately 1300 KW and will be capable of powerding two desalination units or, in an emergency situation, power one unit and provide power for triage or other nearby emergency needs.

It will be housed in a standard, sound--attentuated 40 foot container and provide 3 phase power at 240 or 480 volts and approixmately 2200 amps at the highter voltage.

The system will then become a true turnkey operation with minimal maintenance, low oil and fuel consumption and efficiencies well beyond the 35-40% commonly available on the market.

The design philosphy used on these generators will follow the same approach that we will apply to our distiller-based desalination systems:

REDUCE UNIT ENERGY COSTS

INCREASE SYSTEM OPERATING TIME AND OVERALL RELIABILITY

REDUCE ALL ASPECTS OF MAINTENANCE

REDUCE LIFE-CYCLE-COST

While these advanced generators may initially cost slightly more than those which are gathering dust on the shelf somewhere, the fuel and oil cost savings, coupled with the fact that one can use these for 15 years before replacement or major overhaul is indeed a smart business decision.

Water specialists know that desaliination and waste water treatment projects are indeed long-term business activities They realize that the true benefits, measured by life-cycle-cost savings of having a turnkey, long life, high efficiency desalination system powered by a single, high efficiency generator which lasts 3.5 times longer than conventional designs just makes good business sense and substantially increases project profitability.

SILENCING THE COMPETITION

Spin, rapid dip and robotic coating of corrosion and scale-prone desalination components

In the past, the "deal-breaker" for high dissolved solid, caustic or acid waste water processing(including seawater) has been the gradual corrosion of the metal surfaces as well as the accumulation of scale on the metal surfaces. These are physical phenomena which are an unavoidable and natural part of metalurgical and inorganic mineral sciences.

While these prior coating technologies may have been partially successful with relatively benign scaling or corrosion environments, they have all ended up in the ditch when they were applied to far more caustic and high dissolved solid situations such as seawater or worse.

WE HAVE THE GAME CHANGER!

Our new, proprietary coating technology can be exposed to the most caustic, acidic or salt accumulations and the metal surfaces remains untouched in the presence of passing contaminants ranging up to several hundred thousand parts per million.

If you are still an unbeliever, we will loan you a 2.5 pound sledge hammer and sharp chisel and see if you can scratch the coating surface.

After 15 minutes of strenuous and sweaty hammering, you will indeed be a believer!

This coating is a fast-setting process and a true game changer for the desalination, waste water, piping and other industries. The proprietary coating will be applied to all desalination and waste water surfaces prone to corrosion or scaling. The pictorials above show the various processes used in the manufacturing facility to quickly and uniformly apply the "one time" coating.

The ultimate, life cycle payoff to you, the customer, will be a massive reduction in maintenance and repair costs, an increase in operating time and no degredation of product water quality or energy needs as a function of time.

*****************

LIVE ENVIRONMENT, REAL-TIME QUALITY ASSURANCE AND CERTIFICATION

Our commitment to excellence in system design and reliability is matched by our continuous quality assurance procedures which ensure that each and every desalination system leaving the facility is subjected to an extensive final physical, electrical and end-to end acceptance testing protocol and is further certified by an extensive, on-line "live condition" water desalination testing cycle to validate each and every unit's ability to deal with a wide range of seawater conditions.

The "live" testing of major components and each completed machine is conducted with actual seawater stored on site and cycled repeatedly through each system to produce a certifiable water quality, production and recovery rate as well as power consumption for each delivered unit.

Our well-equipped analytical laboratory will be operated in a manner to ensure that our clients will receive desalination equipment that is more than capable of dealing with difficult seawater conditions.

Our analytical tools (spectrophotometers, optical scanners, etc) constantly evaluate the water quality throughout the finished parts of the production line as well as on samples from many global locations. The result is that in-house engineering, design and fabrication processes are on track and fully capable of long life and high purity water production capabilities regardless of where a customer may want to place one of our systems.
