Did you know only 3% of the world’s water is actually fit for human consumption? Although 71% of the earth’s surface is water, it is too salty to sustain human life or those crops and plants on land. The heavy levels of salt are also far too corrosive for many industrial uses.
Of the remaining 3%, two thirds of this is contained in glaciers and the atmosphere. Leaving 1% shared between a growing global population, said to top 9 billion, in the near future. This highlights the need and importance of handling water and its usage differently. The best way is to recycle the water we use, clean it, and send it back out into the community.
Water is becoming such a precious commodity that it now a hot topic with the United Nations and other global committees. Whilst here in the UK and USA we tend to think of water shortage and non-clean supply as a 3rd world problem, however there are still over 7000 deaths a year in the US attributed to unsanitary water supply, which can’t be acceptable today.
The solution is to develop the water industry into a circular economy, one where we utilise, collect, clean and return the water back to its source before utilising this again. This is the direction that the wastewater industry is heading, and it is planning to boom, worth circa $456.7 billion by 2026. This is the only real sustainable way of ensuring that water is available and continues to be available when we need it.
The next conundrum comes in making sure that the wastewater if fit for human consumption, this is where Delta Mobrey and some of our products come into their own. We have a range of sensors to assist water treatment plants in understanding their sludge level in a sediment tank. These include our MCU200 and gap sensors which are presently used in a variety of plants across the UK.
Alternatively we have our newly launched Ultrasonic range, these products have specific benefits in that they have no moving parts, corrosive resistant and maintenance free solution. These can be used for pump control, Tank mounting and wet wells.
