TDSS Outperforms Competitor Technologies
The water treatment business has mostly depended on reverse osmosis/membrane (filter) technology that wastes water, has both high operating costs (water consumption and energy) and maintenance costs (maintaining and replacing filters). In addition, the water quality of membrane/filter technology is dependent on the least effective filter. Any filter in a reverse osmosis system that becomes ineffective will result in contaminants remaining in the water and clean water will no longer be produced.
Pontic Technology’s TDSS Specifications (Base Model)
Dimensions: TDSSg 34 x 18 x 18 inches, TDSSe 40 x 20 x 20
Weight: TDSSg approx 60 pounds, TDSSe approx 90 lbs
Water Output (GPD): TDSSg Base Model produces 500 gallons per day (GPD). The TDSSe Base Model produces 300 GPD. Both systems are scalable and can be customized to meet a client’s required output (GPD) of germ-free, clean water and/or fluids.
Power Source: TDSSg uses propane (or other hydrocarbon fuel) as the heating source and a 1/2 horse power pump (with 350 feet of head pressure) to produce the required internal pressure for a sterilization system delivering up to 500 GPD. That’s about 15 Watts max electrical power consumption. TDSSe total power draw is 2000 watts (110/220 VAC-27 amps max) – with a circulation heater.
Water Source: Any recycled or fresh water source including wells, aquifers, streams, rivers, lakes, sewage or any other fresh water delivery source, no matter the level of biological contaminants or VOCs.
Length from Source: Within 100 feet or 30 meters (pumping straight up) or longer depending on the slope of the inlet water from the source to the unit.
Low-Maintenance and Sustainable TDSS Technology
All four of the TDSS systems operate with minimal maintenance as there are no filters or moving parts. Operating performance can be monitored remotely using an app, smart phones or nearby stations. If multiple systems are operating in a larger region, they can be monitored via the internet by vehicle or plane.
Pontic Technology’s multidimensional treatment processes unlike current water and fluid treatment technologies, sterilize water from harmful germs through the alteration of the following variables:
- Temperature – adjustable during operations at high-temperature values
- Pressure – adjustable during operations, more than the saturated water table values for the fixed temperature employed
- Time – determined by the flow rate of the water/GPD for a specific Sterilization Assurance Level (SAL)
Water and other fluids sterilization levels are achieved by varying pressure, temperature and dwell time using a proprietary control technology. Under these conditions and adding nothing to the water or other fluids, all microorganism/biological contaminants are eliminated.
In addition, only our technology/systems offer continuous flow with the ability to vary pressure, temperature and dwell time during operations (real time), while achieving the high level of sterilization assurance and validation of 10-6 or better, which exceeds established WHO, EPA and state standards.
Our revolutionary systems significantly outperform current market water treatment systems, including reverse osmosis, ozone and UV lighting because our systems utilize thermal disinfection, a process that is far more effective in eliminating all microorganism/biological contaminants (fungi, bacteria, viruses, spore forms, parasites).
In order to demonstrate a simple method for achieving the desired levels of destruction of stable compounds, a novel approach has been tested involving the application of cavitation. In this concept, employing cavitation as the initiating source of energy, followed by implementing a selective three-dimensional open structured substrate (3DOSS). The cavitation is continued through a tortuous pathway and the destruction of toxic chemicals take place in a one-step, flow-through process. The effectiveness of this combined process has been demonstrated in the destruction of THMs, whereby the destruction of chloroform, for example, has been shown to be 96-98% compared to a blank of 29-38% in preliminary tests. The design of this novel approach offers many additional opportunities to destroy and remove other toxic species, based on specific modifications of size, shape, and catalytic introduction to be employed in the 3DOSS.
Current Failures in Water Safety
Currently there are disease outbreak occurrences in populations served by Public Water Systems where EPA and state standards are not met.
Even if EPA and state standards are met, not everyone is protected. Studies have found that some biological contaminants in even low concentrations pose health risks to infants, young children, and the elderly. Others at risk are individuals with compromised immune systems due to certain illnesses, or those who are undergoing chemotherapy.
Enhanced germ-free, clean water standards, which the TDSS and 3DOSS technology systems produce, can protect individuals from possible health effects from any harmful microbial pathogens. For testing and validation of TDSS and 3DOSS technology systems, visit our “Systems Testing”.
