TeSI Summer Program
After researching various structures and methods of water treatment systems, we eventually concluded on one specific design that consists of two sediment filters, a UVC lamp, two microfluidic chips, and a water pump. The dirty water is first circulated through the water pump and through the two sediment filters before reaching the first microfluidic chip, which detects whether or not it is clean water. Then, the water continues through the UVC lamp, killing bacteria, and then reaches the second microfluidic chip, which confirms that the water is now clean and drinkable. The structure of our water treatment system is simple yet efficient and allows for easier installation and maintenance.
