Hard water converter

The one of major problem in today across world is the need of a drinking water as we know on our planet 71% is covered with water but even though only 2.5% of water available is drinkable where rest of the water is containing the salt or other minerals that type of water is called as the hard water. Recent Researches are done to convert the hard water to soft or drinkable water efficiently at mass scale and that will resolve the problem for the drinking water.

Thus our project also focus on this problem and we try to solve this problem by one of the technique to conversion the main problem with this technique to maintain the pressure inside the boiler and also the maintenance of the boiler is required constantly.

Project Description:

The main principle behind this technique is the hard water when its boiled it converts its liquid state to gaseous state into steam and thus the weight of steam will be lower than the weight of the hardness i.e salts and mineral and hence the water vapours can be collect.

At the top of the boiler and can be cooled down to get the fresh drinkable water. Also we have to check constantly the pressure inside the boiler is constantly increasing and without maintaining the pressure the boiler can fail and cannot be used constantly.

1. Boiler: It’s a component which is constantly heating the water to its boiling point and converts it to vapour state.
2. Condenser: It has the copper tube in which the vapour will pass and cool down to its liquid state.
3. Pressure gauge:To maintain the pressure inside the boiler we have to constantly cheque by using the pressure sensing gauge.

Project Implementation:

To build a hard water convertor we have to first install the boiler for that we have to fix heating coil inside a insulating chamber with a water inlet and valve mechanism at the water inlet to maintain the water flow inside the boiling chamber.

Next we have to fix the pressure gauge inside the boiler to maintain the pressure inside the chamber without failing of the boiling chamber. Now at the top of boiler we have to give a passage from the boiler to the condenser. As vapor will be lighter than the salt and minerals hence the salt will remains at base and vapour of water will be floating at top.

In the condenser we have the copper tube where the hot vapour will pass and will cool down and change its state from gas to water again and this water will be free from the hardness.

Project Requirement:

1. Insulating walls cylinder
2. Condenser(copper tube )
3. pressure gauge
