A CRACKER

  • This tiny stream spurts out at 60mph, creating a low pressure ‘bubble’ in its wake. When this collapses, it makes a bang louder than a rocket launch or jet engine.
  • For a tiny fraction of a second, temperatures in the bubble soar to more than 4,426C (8,000F).
  • The popping also creates a flash of light which lasts for a billionth of a second.
  • Divers say that colonies of the shrimp sound like sizzling fat.

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.

Similarly, the Taraltec® device converts kinetic energy of the fluid into millions of targeted micro-bubbles each acting as a localized reactor.

  • This is 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.

TECHNOLOGY INNOVATION

Winner 2017 IIGP 2.0. India Innovation Growth Program conducted by Department of Science and Technology, Govt of India, Lockheed Martin and Tata Trusts.

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.

SOLUTION: TARALTEC® REACTOR

The breakthrough innovative technology of the Taraltec® water disinfection reactor can be 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, is a game changer in eliminating water borne diseases. With no need for any consumables, the Taraltec® reactor is a maintenance free device for a lifetime of use, anywhere in the world.  This retrofit takes less than an hour, and can even be done by a local fitter with no specialised training or tools.

The Scientific Principle propelling the Taraltec® Reactor is inspired by bio mimicry. In nature, a snapping shrimp (Alpheidae) attacks its prey by shooting a jet of water by snapping its claw, causing the ambient pressure to go below the vapour pressure and a void or cavitation bubble is formed. On recovery of the pressure the 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. This energy is harnessed to create precise conditions for physically killing microbes.

The Taraltec® Reactor is eco- friendly and requires no fuel or electricity to work.
