Details on NCCCM Technology for Detecting Contamination in Water

  • The portable kit that can help in detection in 5 minutes is based on technology developed by Department of Atomic Energy (DAE).

  • Technology for making Portable Visual Kits for detection of Fluoride, Chromium & Iron is transferred to 6 private entrepreneurs indigenous manufacturing.

  • In all detection kits developed, reagents kept inside diff. bottles are to be added to water sample.

  • Reagents are added & mixed for 2 minutes. W/I 5 minutes, colour develops in top layer, intensity of colour is compared w/colour chart by visual inspection to obtain concentration range of contaminant in water.

  • Iron Contamination detection kit is at advanced stage of development & very soon will be available to private entrepreneurs.

  • Kits are available in market based on DAE technology.

  • It can be utilized to remove related contamination.

  • These kits are commercially marketed by licensees for public use & it can be procured for use by public.
