The flow rate can be increased by:
1. increasing the porosity of the filter, by increasing the quantity of burn-out material in the clay mix; and
2. increasing the pore size, either by
changing the particle size distribution of the burnout material, or by
changing the maximum firing temperature.
The bacteria removal effectiveness is only compromised when in...

Clean water is scarce in Kenya’s Nyanza Province, located
on the shores of Lake Victoria. People in this region often
collect their drinking water from shallow wells, nearby
streams, or through rainwater catchment. The water
is often contaminated, leading to a high prevalence of
diarrheal disease in the region. T...

Iron and Manganese are naturally occurring metals commonly found in both surface water and groundwater.
In January 2012, MSABI determined that a review of possible methods for the removal of iron and manganese from source water should be undertaken. It is important to note that, in accordance with WHO guidelines, in most naturally occurring concentrations (including the levels measured to date in...
Abstract “Microbially-unsafe water is still a major concern in most developing countries. Although many water-purification methods exist, these are expensive and beyond the reach of many people, especially in rural areas. Ayurveda recommends the use of copper for storing drinking-water. Therefore, the objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of copper-pot on microbially-contaminate...
“The health consequences of inadequate water and sanitation services include an estimated 4 billion cases of diarrhea and 1.9 million deaths each year, mostly among young children in developing countries. Diarrheal diseases lead to decreased food intake and nutrient absorption, malnutrition, reduced resistance to infection, and impaired physical growth and cognitive development. Since 1996...
Ceramic filter pilot projects (2002-2006) in Cambodia have yielded promising results that suggest these
interventions can be effective in improving drinking water quality and can contribute to substantial
health gains in populations using them.
Household-scale ceramic filtration technology is considered among the most promising options for treating drinking water at the ho...
Field study and surveys were conducted to evaluate interdisciplinary parameters influencing the health of people using ceramic filters for water purification. A total of 52 families were distributed with filters at Eweje Village, Odeda local government area, Ogun State, Nigeria. Surveys contained questions related to hygiene, health, water source and treatment, socio-econ...
