As per the data from the World Health Organization:
‐ Globally, at least 2 billion people use a drinking water source contaminated withpathogens; ‐ Contaminated water can transmit diseases suchdiarrhoea, cholera, dysentery, typhoid, and polio. Contaminated drinking water is estimated to cause 485 000diarrhoealdeaths each year; ‐ By 2025, half of the world's population will be living in water-stressed areas.
Earth's growing population, global climate change, complete environment pollution: all these factors deprive humans of access to clean and safe drinking water.
Water from lakes, rivers, groundwater sources or reservoirs may contain disease-causing pathogens, e.g. Campylobacter, Salmonella, Giardia, Cryptosporidium, E.Coli, Legionella, etc, which can lead to water-borne infections.
Drinking water suppliers disinfect water to make it safe using various methods such as heat treatment, ultraviolet (UV) radiation, filtration, by adding chemicals, or by using a combination of these methods.
Treatment with electron beams uses high energy of electrons and X-Rays as disinfection method to eliminate pathogens completely or reduce their quantity to an acceptable level. Ionizing radiation directly affects DNA structure of pathogens by inducing DNA breaks, thus damaging them and sterilizing the material or product.
Applying ionizing radiation technology for antimicrobial treatment of drinking water independently or in combination with other treatment methods opens up new possibilities for solving issues in supplying clean and safe drinking water to world's population.
Beamcomplex manufactures modules equipped with electron accelerators for antimicrobial treatment of drinking water, which may be placed directly at water supply facilities.
The company provides the following services :
Installation of E-Beam modules at existing water intake facilities and their integration into existing water purification and disinfection systems as an additional step for ensuring drinking water safety.
Greenfield water piping systems design and construction with an inbuilt system of mechanical purification and antimicrobial treatment of drinking water using E-Beam modules
