Technology of production of vending machines with built-in preparation, storage and batch sale of melt drinking water.

Date: 24.08.2015 Active until 15.02.2019
Profile code: 4237Technology offer
A Russian company from Novosibirsk has developed a technology for the production of vending machines for stand-alone preparation, storage and batch sale of melt drinking bottled water. The industrial prototype is made of the design documentation, tested in accordance with safety requirements; it can be parsed into its component parts. The company is interested in the license agreement and technical cooperation for the production of vending machines.
Useful properties of melt water are described in numerous popular science publications.
The proposed technology allows for an autonomous preparation and sale of melt water in devices designed for mass consumption in offices, shops, sports facilities and others.
The operational principle of the device is very simple: the working tank is filled with raw water; the device automatically analyses its parameters, such as temperature, pollution, salinity, etc., and selects the appropriate mode of preparation of melt water. In the process of freezing the appliance specifies the stage where harmful impurities are separated (to form brine); they have a lower freezing point. They are dispatched into a separate tray for contaminated water. The remaining ice is free of impurities is subjected to soft, gradual defrosting, resulting in meltwater. The device has an automatic washing function, which allows for maintaining the hydraulic system clean. The proposed technology allows for water purification without the use of artificial filters and chemical additives. Technological "know-how" is based on the principle of natural water purification, as a result of freezing and thawing.
The company already has an experience in the development and market entry of projects in the sphere of production of melt water. The proposed technology has the following content:
1. Complete set of intellectual property.
2. Complete set of design documentation.
3. Complete set of technical documentation for assembly operations.
4. Specification and a detailed listing of components and parts of the vending machine with prices and suppliers.
5. A set of original software.
6. Test hardware.
7. Operation and maintenance manual.
8. Equipment passport and certificate (declaration of conformity for the customs union ("EAC" mark)) for the vending machine.
9. A working prototype of the vending machine, after the open field trials and laboratory studies.
10. An industrial prototype of the vending machine, after closed field trials and laboratory studies.
11. Official reports and conclusions on the results of laboratory tests.
12. Marketing and promotional video presentation.
The company is ready to provide further assistance for the implementation of the project into production, staff training and the transfer of all rights to the technology.
Innovative aspects
The innovative aspect is a method of preparation of melt water and its packaging into bottles for vending.
The preparation method involves the using of tap water, its subsequent freezing and thawing in nonchemical environment.
The developed device is fully automated. It is capable of analyzing the level of contamination and the temperature of the source (raw) water as well as the temperature in the room where installed. Using a software algorithm it automatically adjusts the time, speed and mode of the process.
The vending device is designed for 220 bottles of 250 ml. each. Daily it produces 70 litres of clean melt water.
Main offer's advantages
The advantage is the possibility of a completely new way of providing mass consumers (office staff, sport centres and exhibitions visitors, etc.) with purified water.
Purified drinking water is comparable to the cost of conventional bottled water. As of August 2015, the cost of 1 litre of melt water with all of the expenses accounted (water, sewer, electricity, display, etc.) is less than RUR 1, which is 0.01 EUR.
Another advantage is low energy consumption. An integrated module consumes 375 watts, which is less than energy consumption of other vending machines with heating (e.g., coffee-making). This is possible because heating and melting are implemented by hot gases, so it does not affect the power consumption.
