Welcome to Taraltec Solutions

THE PROBLEM

Over 1.4 billion people in 36 countries will be without proper safe microbe killed water by the year 2025. According to the WHO and UNICEF Joint Monitoring Programme Report of 2015, 663 million people lack access to safe water. 

In India, it has been estimated that by 2050, 45% of the population would be short of ‘safe’ water.

  • In the under-served rural area with its 6,50,000 villages, 85% of the water is sourced from ground water aquifers grossly contaminated with pollutants.
  • Nearly 38 million people are affected annually by water borne diseases.
  • 1.5 million children die of diarrhoea every year. Cholera and typhoid too cause widespread casualty.
  • 73 million working days are lost to water borne diseases each year.
  • ₹ 4000 Crore ($ 600 Million) is the estimated economic burden per year.

CONVENTIONAL METHODS OF ‘CLEANING’ WATER …  

  • Boiling of Water
  • Filtering (recurring cost of changing filters at regular intervals)      
  • Adding of chemicals (Chlorine etc.)
  • RO –Reverse Osmosis
  • UV –Ultra Violet

… ARE NOT ENOUGH

There are drawbacks in each

  • Regular Recurring Operating Costs & Consumables, with significant carbon footprint (15 grams of CO2 emissions for every litre of water boiled)
  • Need intense monitoring and regular management.
  • In RO, huge wastage of water
  • Imprecise chemical dosage has carcinogenic implications

THE SOLUTION: TARALTEC™ REACTOR

The Taraltec™ Reactor for water disinfection kills microbes in water from bore well hand-pump and motorized water lines thus eliminating water borne diseases such as diarrhoea, cholera and typhoid. The Taraltec™ Reactor is ideal for all under-served remote areas as it has:

  • NIL opex, low capex.
  • Does not require any maintenance.
  • Does not need any fuel or electricity.
  • No need for specialised personnel for installation or fitting.

The Taraltec™ Reactor can be easily retrofitted into a hand pump – such as the India mark 2 model (the most widely used hand pump in the world), or even into any motorized bore well within an hour by even a local plumber with no special tools, by just sliding the reactor into the hand pump water tank or attaching inline of the discharge side of the motorized water pump.

How it Works

SCIENTIFIC PRINCIPLE INSPIRED BY BIO-MIMICRY

Video Courtesy: BBC

Just as in nature, a snapping shrimp (Alpheidae) attacks its prey by shooting a jet of water by snapping its claw, causing cavitation bubbles to form as the ambient pressure goes below the vapour pressure.

On recovery of the ambient pressure, this bubble implodes with an intense localized energy release, with temperatures to the extent of

  • several thousand degrees, pressures of several hundred bars with intense shear & turbulence
  • Energy is harnessed to create precise conditions for physically killing microbes

TECHNOLOGY

In a flowing fluid or slurry when the ambient pressure goes below the vapour pressure, a cavitation void or “bubbles” form. On recovery of the ambient pressure, this bubble collapses with an intense localized energy release, which has temperatures to the extent of several thousand degrees, pressures of several hundred bars and huge turbulence.

The Taraltec™ Reactor can create and collapse precisely tailored bubbles to modulate the pressure, temperature, turbulence and formation of free radicals due to the phenomena. The Taraltec™ reactors harness this knowledge to transform physical, chemical and biological processes in a more efficient and effective way.

  • The device converts kinetic energy of fluid into millions of targeted micro-bubbles each acting as localized reactors
  • Packed with extreme heat, pressure and turbulence that release intense energy packets during the collapse of the bubbles
  • The resultant shock waves physically kill microbes, and deliver the water to those drawing it up, + 99% safer than earlier
  • Patents are applied for.

SAVING ENERGY SAVING LIVES

The Taraltec™ Reactor ​harnesses fluid dynamics and  ​kills microbes in water from bore well hand-pump & motorized water lines –  eliminating water borne diseases such as  diarrhea, cholera & typhoid. The Taraltec Reactors can take care of this, to above 99% microbe kill.

About Us

Safe water is a critical problem across the world.

Taraltec Solutions is a startup company registered under DIPP, Government of India, in 2017, and our company has patents applied for, re: our innovative Water Disinfection Reactors.

The Taraltec™ Reactor ​harnesses fluid dynamics and ​kills microbes in water from bore well hand pump & motorized water lines – eliminating water borne diseases such as diarrhoea, cholera & typhoid.

In rural areas: The red ‘dot’ mark on a bore well, added by the authorities, indicates that the water from the bore well has been tested and found to be contaminated and hence condemned.

Often, this is due to improper sanitation and faecal matter penetrating into the underground aquifers.

The Taraltec Reactors can take care of this, to above 99% microbe kill.

​We have begun to partner the CSR initiatives of important Foundations in India.
