Patent for Sale:

Efficient, Effective and Affordable Continuous Monitoring System of Drinking Water    

Fast and cost effective monitoring of water purity enabling early warning and reporting problems on-line direct to the authorities

Overview

The patented technologies can be applied to water purity sensory systems which monitor water electronically for Ecoli, chlorine, turbidity, and heavy-metal and other poisons contaminants. The technology has been prototyped successfully and can be implemented to include the following features:
1. 4-6 hours test time for contaminated water with Ecoli or coliforms (labs can take 2-3 days)
2. A few seconds test time for water contaminated with metals
3. Testing is done flow-through inline
4. Working online automatically sending a warning to the water authority
5. Cost effective
6. Fully portable
7. Low maintenance overhead.
8. Tried and tested technology

Primary Application of the Technology

Residential, municipality, public, private, terror security agency

The Problem Solved by the Technology

Fast and early detection of water contaminants using laser fluorescence technology that detects contaminants in drinking water

How the Technology Solves the Problem

The basis for the patented technologies comes from cation chromatography, whereby inorganic ions indirectly absorb the mid-UV more than mobile phase ions. One of the main advantages of such a configuration is its use as a flow-through, in-line sensor. A laser fluoroscope irradiates water sample. To detect contaminants, immobilized heavy metals, etc. are exposed to the sample and are then monitored using a substrate that fluoresces under illumination by the ultraviolet laser light.

Light emitted by the optical sensor is rapidly detected at wavelengths specific to each fluorescent product by a highly-sensitive light detector containing a charge-coupled device (CCD), similar to those found in digital cameras for instance.

Threshold alarm signals are converted and amplified, then sent over a network to the user console or monitoring station.

Competitive Advantage

Fast, low-cost and highly effective continuous monitoring of water quality. The patented technology has the ability to provide 24/7 pre-emptive positive/negative reading for these deadly toxins, and to automatically shutoff security valves in the water infrastructure piping system.
