The project works with Injection Molding Techniques. It will create an inherently low friction
The project is to create an inherently low friction "liquid ring type compressor" for waste water treatment in the developing world context.
Determine the feasibility of creating a developing world appropriate “liquid ring type compressor/aerator”.
Determine whether a liquid ring type compressor can be created such that it can operate in the horizontal plain instead of the conventional vertical plain.
Design the resulting compressor/aerator such that it is “designed for manufacturing” and “tool-able” using low cost injection molding techniques to help insure global access.
Redefine “appropriate technology” and “sustainability” as something that not only works, but lasts.
