Water Filtration System Design - Urgent

  1. Apr 2, 2013 #1
    Hi all,
    I am having trouble finding a website/researching to find more about how I can improve this system: http://www.waterfortheworld.com/file...ion_Manual.pdf [Broken]
    SPECIFICALLY I need help to think of how to have a cover on the filter or have a cap/nozzle on the hydroxide solution-if it is left on the solution will continue to generate heat and will be dangerous to potential users. The link above covers the parts used and the process, but basically chlorine gas is isolated and used to filter the water.
    Please HELP, this is URGENT.

    Thanks!

    Ah, then I will move the thread to the Homework Help section of the PF. All schoolwork assignment related threads need to be posted there, and you need to do the bulk of the work on your projects.

    BTW, the link in your original post (OP) does not work for me. I am able to get to the top-level website, but not to the PDF file. Can you check the link and maybe post a link to the folder above the PDF file?

    Alright, that is ok. I am doing the bulk of the work I was just looking for some ideas on research. And for quick access just search fountains of hope nd go to their website and you can download the summary sheet easily under about us.
    Thanks a lot

    Is there a more detailed drawing/picture of the system showing the parts that you want to improve?

    Can you use the water itself to draw heat from the hot part of the apparatus? Maybe as part of the pumping circulation system, run the water around this part...

    Here's a link to the original pdf i sent you: it should describe it better: http://waterfortheworld.com/System_Resources/Supporting_Documents/ [Broken]
    Thanks for your help

    What about my idea of using the water circulation itself to draw excess heat away from the part you were asking about?
