Development of a swirl induction device for the high flow rate Typhon UV LED water treatment reactor
3 Year Enterprise-led Funded Phd
The goal of this research and design process is to develop a Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) modelling capability verified and calibrated by experimental modelling to optimise the component design, geometrical shape and performance of the Typhon water treatment equipment.
Typhon’s patent-pending design on a geometrical configuration of UV LED’s for use in high flow rate biological and chemical water treatment applications has the potential for 90% energy savings compared with current mercury lamp technology.
Applicants should have an engineering degree.
