Removal of Dissolved Salts and Toxic Substances from Water Using Desert Desalting Kit
A portable desert desalting kit for converting natural brackish water or waters deliberately contaminated with certain toxic substances into potable water has been developed. The potable water is of acceptable standards laid down by WHO/ICMR.
Based on ion exchange resin, the kit consists of desalting bag with filter and eight chemical packets. It requires 15 min to obtain potable water (450 ml from each chemical packet) from brackish water containing dissolved solids upto 7000 mg/l yielding in all 3.6 litres of potable water sufficient for a man to survive for a day.
