SkyHydrant™ Sustainable Drinking Water Solutions

 

   

Disaster Aid Australia is working with the SkyJuice Foundation to bring safe, clean, drinking water to villages in India, Malaysia and the Philippines.

  • The SkyHydrant water purification unit produces safe drinking water without the need for power or chemicals
  • The SkyHydrant is a low cost, lightweight (16 kg) portable and easy to deploy in the field
  • The UF membrane is robust, cleanable and has a service life of 10 years
  • Operating functions are simple and manual, with virtually no consumables
  • Safe water for less than $1 per person per year
  • Designed to produce water for 500-1000 people as stand alone unit, or can be configured for larger capacity.
  • A single unit can produce up to 1000 litres per hour.
  • Clean drinking water can be produced from the majority of non-saline surface and ground water.

 

How Does The SkyHydrant Work?

The ultrafiltration (UF) membrane, consisting of thousands of microporous hollow fibres, removes harmful bacteria, micro-organisms, dirt and other contaminating particles.
No chemicals, coagulants, pumps or energy are required for the filtration process - the system operates under gravity with a minimum head pressure of 1 metre.
Cleaning process is simple and manual. Drain down concentrate is completely organic.

Who Is SkyJuice?

The SkyJuice Foundation is a not for profit organisation incorporated in Australia. The Foundation’s charter is to provide low cost, sustainable water treatment solutions for humanitarian programs and for emergency and disaster relief efforts.
