Logistics and Readiness
Energistx, we understand the specific needs of today's military
and our Global Water Purification Equipment meet the our changing
world challenges ofconcentrate on other needs.
Set Up, Tear Down and Operating Requirements
all components or modules have been positioned at the site
of use, assuming only Mode 1 of operations, just the LS3 component
of the WPS UNIT, the system can be put into operation by one
personnel. If only the LS3 subsystem mode is being used, the
setup time would be less than 1 hour (usually under 30 minutes).
If using a sea water source or if NBC contamination is present
and the RO subsystem mode is being used, the setup time would
be within one hour and require two personnel. Set up time
includes performing all pre-operation checks and services,
establishing initial settings, making all mechanical or electrical
connections, installing expendable items or supplies, making
adjustments, and adding fluids or chemicals. Preparing the
WPS UNIT for shipment or movement to another site takes one
to two personnel no longer than 1 hour from the time of notification.
Operations are geared for one person to operate.
and Power Interfaces
generators or Energistx's Special High-Efficiency Generators
are preferred and can be placed on the operating platforms.
are standard SAE (all English) and the number of tools required
to repair or maintain the systems are kept to a minimum. Operator
level maintenance consists of preventive maintenance checks
and services and modular replacement of defective assemblies.
All tools required for normal operations and routine operator
maintenance should be stored with each Global unit for protection,
accessibility and transport.
RO component has a meter that indicates to the operator the
number of hours that the unit has been operated. The meter
shall use the operational hours of the high pressure pump
as the basis for the RO component system operational hours.
The LS3 component has its own rate and flow metering.
Durability and Ruggedness
WPS UNIT is rugged and durable to prevent, other than normal
wear and tear, damage during repetitive transport, handling,
lifting and loading/unloading, set-up, tear down, and operating
cycles by personnel in a field environment. Global's current
equipment has been field tested through the roughest of terrain,
dropped from helicopters, and dropped from the back of trucks
with minimal problems. They hold up just fine, and after years
of use, they keep on working.
promote and assist the achievement of maintainability objectives,
Global Water will ensure the ability to maintain the equipment
in the field. The capability of the potential operators to
affect necessary repairs on-site is also an integral part
of our design philosophy. Integral to these is the capability
of the operator to quickly identify and correct any malfunction
in the most adverse conditions to which the system is exposed.
In achieving the above objectives Global's operations,
maintenance, and parts manuals are written in concise language.
Technical terms are used only when absolutely necessary and
are followed by definition. The use of drawings and pictures
to compliment written text and promote understanding are maximized.
The objective of the manuals is to provide the tools which
an individual, who has no prior knowledge of the unit, can
use to learn to operate and maintain the unit in a minimum
amount of time.
Periodic maintenance requirements are those tasks which must
be performed on calendar and/or hourly intervals.
• Conditional task are
performed when a given condition is met.
• Unscheduled component
replacement occurs when a component fails and must be replaced.
design of ruggedly built reliable water purification units
has been a major part of the design and manufacturing philosophy
since the inception of Global Water Technologies. In many
instances our current production models are deployed and utilized
in areas that are remote and isolated where the availability
of spare parts is non-existent. Many of our units are used
in disaster relief efforts and are frequently the sole source
of clean drinking water in the immediate area. As a result,
users of equipment expect to not only produce safe drinking
water but to do so day after day. Global Water Technologies
takes pride in its ability to produce highly dependable water
processing units. We also recognize that, with age and use,
equipment will malfunction regardless of the amount of depth
of a preventive maintenance program. We have therefore focused
our efforts on developing and maintaining simplicity in unit
design and construction, simplicity in operator-machine interface,
and simplicity and ease of maintainability. These concepts
have enable user personnel to rapidly gain the knowledge,
skills, and experience required to operate and maintain the
LS3 units in the field. The capability of field personnel
to quickly complete on-site repairs and return the units to
full operating status has significantly contributed to the
reputation of the equipment and the company.
Based on unit design, all primary, secondary,
and support systems are identified. A preliminary Bill of
Material (BOM) is then prepared for each of the systems. The
BOM identifies every component and item, including common
hardware, which is required for each individual system.
The identification of all primary and secondary
systems every components within the systems are also identified.
Required operating parameters are established
for each component based on function and critical importance
to system and unit performance.
Material and components are researched and purchased
based on the ability to meet or exceed the criteria established
above. Every model now produced by Global Water Technologies
exceeds original design criteria.
Critical manufacturing tasks are identified.
These are tasks, which if not performed correctly, could/would
cause premature failure of a component or unit.
Quality assurance inspection requirements are
established with special attention placed on critical manufacturing
Every unit currently produced by Global Water
Technologies must meet stringent test criteria established
for systems and components in each unit to ensure that that
not only the components but also the system meets the criteria
for water purification equipment as required by local, state,
and federal regulations. The test criteria apply to all system
modes of operations and functions. Currently all production
units manufactured by Global Water undergo a minimum of 25
hours of test and operation prior to shipment to ensure that
the unit is ready for use when received by the customer.
of Corrosion Resistant Materials and Suitability for Field
military equipment is designed to be simple to use, easy to
maintain, rugged and reliable. All Military models constructed
by Global Water Technologies takes into consideration the
tough operational environment of military training and operation.
The WPS system follows the same tough standards, making it
resistant to moisture, corrosion, oxidation and growth of
fungus and bacteria. All the electrical connections are protected.
All material that could be corroded is made of corrosion resistant
material. They have been field proven in combat and have been
used by the US military in Somalia, Rwanda, Haiti, Afghanistan,
Iraq and Bosnia.
Biological Chemical (NBC) Survivability (optional features)
systems can be equipped with an optical spectrometer, a nephelometer,
conductimeter and thermometer to determine, turbidity, TDS
and temperature of source water. Data will automatically select
the components to be used for the particular water type being
processed. The output water from the RO and the LS3 components
are then monitored for TDS, turbidity, temperature, and flow
rate. The data is digitally displayed, digitally recorded
and graphed. If the output water is below established minimums,
the component will disconnect the system. The system is configured
to withstand NBC contamination and decontamination. LS3-DESAL
Series are designed to reduce corners and lips that can retain
contaminants. Materials and assembly will tolerate water pressure,
detergents and alkaline solutions. After the decontamination,
the system will resume normal operation producing potable
water of US Tri-Service quality Standards as originally designed.
Following an NBC attack, there is a procedure set to replace
all filters, filter housings, multi-media pods and hoses.
All processed water will now be potable. Initial start-up
clean output is used to wash down the equipment (with cleansing
solvents) to decontaminate the system. Control panels have
been modified for NBC survivability specifications whereby
the operator, can easily activate and service the system wearing
heavy, bulky gloves, and protective gear.
Note: See Military Catalogue for details on
All of Global's systems (unless stated as DESAL
[Desalination], High TDS, or Brackish) assume fresh water
or low TDS source water. Sources of water might be municipal
systems, rivers, lakes, ponds or wells. Water Filtration System:
Unit filters out harmful bacteria and parasites using replaceable
filter media. This prepares water for consumption by persons
without access to safe water supplies.
Systems are mobile and self-contained. They
can be ordered as fixed base systems. All systems have a one
year limited warranty. There are options for ALL WEATHER HOUSINGS,
trailers, NBC capability and Extended (3-Year) Warranties.
