Aguapods is competitive in providing turnkey solutions comprising its proprietary treatment technology and all peripheral infrastructure (e.g., container, storage reservoir, power generator) for Disaster Relief Applications. Compact, transportable and highly efficient the Aguapods can be quickly set up and start providing clean drinking water from available lakes, rivers or wells. These systems by design are chemical free and have very low maintenance requirements, so relief workers can focus on their efforts rather than operating the water system.

AguaPods helping bring clean water to disaster areas!

Prefabricated and modular water treatment plant

  • Automated and easy to operate, no specialized labour required
  • Recognized technology with top-ranking treatment capabilities

“Depending on application and water characteristics provided to us, the following add-ons may be required: Carbon Filtration, Ion Exchange, Reverse Osmosis … Whatever the needs are, our talented engineering team can design the Aguapods solution to meet your needs.”


Technical Specifications

Treatment of freshwater (lake/river) or underground water contaminated by surface water.
Turnkey Concept
Prefabricated and pretested prior to delivery to client for accelerated implementation. Can be delivered on a platform or with own housing (maritime container for international market).
4 Treatment Steps
1) Vortex prefiltration to remove sediment larger than 74 μm
2) Ozone generation on ceramic plate using ambient air
3) Pressurized contact tank for the diffusion of ozone in water with brief contact time < 5 minutes
4) Final filtration through ultrafiltration membranes to remove turbidity and pathogens
Optional: biological filtration using biologically active carbon for water with high organic matter content
• Ozone(O3) is a natural gas produced by exposing air to an electrical field
• O3 is the most powerful oxidizer that can be used safely to treat water
• Elimination of pathogens and viruses
• Oxidation of iron and manganese
• Colour and odour reduction
• Safe and controlled production on site (ozone detector, alarms, materials compatible with O3)
• O3 analyser at reaction tank outlet with automatic adjustment of O3 generation based on fluctuations in raw water quality
• Effective ozone diffusion at start of process chain prevents fouling of membranes, which otherwise require daily chemical cleaning, as is the case of most membrane processes available on the market.
Highly automated “intelligent” system reducing need for human intervention and providing enhanced water quality monitoring. Preventive use of collected data to anticipate variations in operating conditions.
Monitoring and intervention from a remote location through Internet-based telemetry.
Design Flow Rate
100 m3/d to 5 000 m3/d
Electric Power Requirements
Min. 220 volts - max. 600 volts (North America). Can be adapted for international markets.
Filter Cleaning
Prefilter water only. Membranes = air and water.
% Efficiency
85-90% (vol. of water produced / volume of raw water x 100).
Disinfection Logs
In cold water T= 1.0 Celsius (ozone and membrane filtration):
• Giardia = 3.3+ logs
• Cryptosporidium = 6.5+ logs
• Virus = 7.1+ logs
