The WHO estimate that 842,000 diarrhoeal disease deaths are caused per year as a result of inadequate water sanitation
Fast moving disaster relief situations mean you need a water treatment that you can rely on. Proven to be several times more effective than chlorine, our ClO2 products are the answer
Whilst measures such as water boiling and chlorination with bleach provide a good “first response”, there are often cases where something more is required to provide adequate control of biological pathogens, whilst ensuring the water is palatable and available in high volumes.
Scotmas products and engineered solutions are applied by military, NGO and charitable organisations to deliver high quality water where it is needed most.
The limitations of chlorine based water treatments are well understood and documented. Relatively high dose rates are required, and it is unable to inactivate some viruses and complex pathogens such as cryptosporidium and giardia. ClO2 from Scotmas can be applied as a better alternative in a number of forms:
- A simple and easy to use tablet, suitable for water volumes between 1 and 25 litres
- Simple liquid dosing of water bowsers and tanks
- Pre-engineered treatment skids and containerised plant that combine state of the art filtration technology with the biocidal power of ClO2, and can be rapidly deployed to camps and transit facilities to respond to medium term water treatment requirements
No matter the scale of the situation, Scotmas have the products, experience and technical capability to deliver a water treatment solution that is scalable and cost effective for your requirements.
