Vikas Brahmavar, a former student of the Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering (2002 Batch), Amrita School of Engineering, Coimbatore campus, has set up a company, TransWaters Private Limited, that treats water after STP treatment to potable quality. He uses naturally mined and processed ores and patented recycling systems that he sourced from the United States.
The water goes through multiple phases of treatment. In the first stage, the treated STP water is passed through a filter of specialized media to reduce total suspended solids (TSS) and turbidity, following which the second stage of micron filtration is undergone. With activated carbon and manganese dioxide based media, the third stage reduces dissolved iron and total organic contamination (TOC). This is then followed by multiple stages of micron filtrations that remove bacteria, viruses and heavy metals, as well as nitrates, fluoride, sulphates and other dissolved salts. Finally, the treated water goes through the process of ozonation for disinfection and is stored in a tank.
TransWaters has a workforce of eight members, including Vikas, and has helped over 400 customers with water solutions since 2008. With customised solutions for individual homes, apartments and villas, as well as industries, the company has answers for anyone and everyone who consciously wants to conserve water.
"We are looking to save 50 Crore litres of water by this year and by end of 2020 we want to improve the water quality and touch 100000 lives by providing clean drinking water," shared Mr. Vikas.
