Why was the technical training important for the water-solution projects in Oe-Cusse and Aturo Island?
Learning how to operate Machine of Unit TWM light.
TWM light is a smart unit for the treatment of municipal water (non-saline). It is a complete system and is ready to be install at the pipe of the apartment. It requires feed pressure and ongoing water supply in order to operate smoothly. The unit is equipped with: an Ultra-filtration membrane that allows to remove viruses and bacteria, a system to backflush the membrane, and an active carbon filter to remove unpleasant smells. This process retains natural minerals in the source water. The TWM light is for in-house application only and represents a perfect solution for apartments. The system is very compact, easy to install and maintain.
Learning how to operate Machine of Unit TWM 001.
This machine is a water treatment system to produce drinking water. The site installation will generally be accomplished by specialized personnel of the plant manufacturer or by trained professionals of the site/regional sales, service office. The TWM 001 provides approx. 500- 600 liters of potable water per hour from diverse sources such as rainwater reservoirs, tank-truck water utilities or pre-treated municipal water sources. The principal purpose is it to eliminate organic contaminations such as microorganism, bacteria or viruses and to separate small particles from bigger ones (usually size bigger than 0,02 micron).
Learning how to operate Machine Bag in Box.
Machine Bag in Box is a smart machine, which fills water coming from the tank water production into the plastics. This machine have already automatic setting like filling mode, in other to know how many liters need to be punt into the plastics. After that, the operator puts the plastic into the carton.
