Portable Mobile Water Purifier Design for Natural Disaster

Fang-Lin Chao and Bo-Sen Tseng

Abstract—The turbidity water in the disaster area is unusable and requires long periods of precipitation and filtration. A simple portable water filter is designed to solve the problem of drinking water for the victims. The method to solve the problem: a 2-in-1 motor powered by a DC battery provided extracted and pressurized on turbid rainwater. We choose the suitable filters set to reduce costs. The Prototyping model made by 3D printing used to verify the user’s requirement. Both piggyback and handheld are suitable for rescuer’s body condition. The result shows the turbid water can be continuously extracted and released to the drinking water of acceptable quality during the pressurization process. We achieved a portable water purifier which improved the water quality and provided a short-term drinking water supply. It can place in local community office during the disaster.
