Abstract

A portable water filtration unit can be designed and fabricated to produce clean drinking water from an otherwise unhealthy water source. There are already numerous portable filters on the market; however, their effectiveness is limited to the specific filter that they use. This filtration design will consist of three separate treatment stages including sediment screening filter, an ultra violet light filter, and a carbon-activated filter. Mechanical energy will be transferred from a crank mechanism to provide power to a pump and an induction generator that will provide the energy to operate the UV filter. Finished water quality is desired to meet US Department of Health standards.
