Water Purification Project

Honor Student Water Purification Project

Department: Physics and Engineering
Symposium Year: 2013
Student(s): Philip Sharp, John Glencoe, Kenny Kimble, Jacob Owens
Faculty Mentor(s): Dr. Mohammed Eltayeb

 

This team will design a small – scale water purification system capable of providing enough safe drinking water to sustain a typical household (primary usage). The goal of this project is to overcome the limiting factors of existing water purification systems by creating an innovative design. System efficiency will be optimized by minimizing waste heat, input energy, and overall size. Energy efficient buildings that utilize hydrogen generators demand high quality freshwater at a low energy cost. This water purification system will offer the possibility of integration into the SERF building at Frostburg State University. Additionally, the team will research the feasibility of using the water purification system to meet freshwater demands resulting from global freshwater shortages. The team will prudently manage the combination of design and materials, equipment and construction, and operating conditions and applications of the water purification system. The prototype is to be completed by May 1, 2013 and cost less than $1000.
