1. Product feature


Global population growth and economy development cause serious shortage of water. Another problem is serious water contamination caused by the waste water from factory and housing area. We have less option to keep water pure now, more people will suffer to seek for safe water in future. In some countries people are forced to drink and use contaminated water that may contain hazardous bacteria. In such countries the investment for water purification is often impossible due to high cost.
There is a new, affordable, useful solution “BP Erasure” made in Japan. It can be installed with less cost and less energy consumption. We adopt photocatalyst and UV lamp in simple and compact component. From the small size like fish tank to the large size like pond or lake, you can assemble it in any size you like. The simplicity and flexibility are the major advantage of BP Erasure. It has function such as disinfection, killing algae, killing insect, resolve chemical compound. “Energy saving, low cost, high quality, simple installation” are the benefit you gain from BP Erasure. The purified water does not contain bacteria and virus, it can supply safe and pure water.

2. Competitiveness of product


1. Less environmental impact : If the apparatus adopt ozonization system, it may generate ozone, aldehyde, ketone that cause contamination. Biologics and chlorine are also doubtful when we consider the environmental impact. On the other hand, our photocatalyst system has less environmental impact, therefore it is better in the usage for the purification in drinking water and food industry.

2. Low cost, high flexibility : Ozonization system is often installed in water purification but it costs a lot. Furthermore it has oxidation effect that causes corrosion in the device. In BP Erasure we don’t use ozonization process. We use photocatalyst that doesn’t cause corrosion. That means BP Erasure can save initial cost, running cost and maintenance cost. The component and installation are also simple, you don’t need any special machine, construction and technology. You don’t have to work regularly to put flocculants in water. BP Erasure is totally easy and simple to install, operate.

3. Less power in operation : BP Erasure consumes less power and eco-friendly. Power consumption is low. If you operate it with solar power, BP Erasure can be operated as independent power supply system. Therefore, BP Erasure is especially good in the developing countries where people don’t have the infrastructure of water supply, where people can’t access power source.

4. High efficiency water purification and high effect against combined pollution : If we use only UV lamp in water purification, deactivated bacteria may be re-activated with the effect of near ultraviolet radiation and visible radiation. It reduces efficiency in water purification process. In BP Erasure we utilize UV lamp with photocatalyst to prevent re-activation of bacteria. This combination increase efficiency of purification. In addition to that, photocatalyst doesn’t require expensive investment such as ozonization device. Photocatalyst can reduce the environmental impact in water purification. With this combination, we can cope with combined pollution such as organic compound, bacteria, protozoa, algae, agrochemical, toxic substance etc)

[6] Benefit and how to use


1. Benefits in efficiency, productivity, safety
<Safety and efficiency in introduction>
Photocatalyst reacts to the substance what it touched. It doesn’t cause any unintentional chemical reaction. Therefore, BP Erasure is not efficient in the mass-scale waste water purification plant. On the other hand it doesn’t require electricity very much, the power can be supplied with renewable energy such as solar panel. With this flexibility, BP Erasure can be introduced as an independent power supplying water purification system in the area where people can’t access power source. BP Erasure is easy to install, transport, and the initial cost is low compared to other existing water purification plant.
<Productivity>
BP Erasure can be applied in 1) sterilization (colon bacillus, staphylococcus, virus), 2) killing algae (harmful algal bloom, red tide plankton), 3) insecticide (chlorine resistant protozoa such as cryptosporidium, larvae of parasite), 4) chemical substance (agrochemical such as simazine, chemical substance such as formaldehyde, organic compound such as environmental hormone, antibiotics). BP Erasure can be a solution in the multiple types of contamination and pollution.


2. How to prepare
- Please watch movie and read handling manual when you install it.
- BP Erasure can be combined on water or land.

3. Precaution
BP Erasure utilizes electricity and UV. Please follow the instruction of handling manual.

[7] Message from president


BP Erasure has been developed through years of research of water environment. We wanted to assure safety of water in the world regardless the level of development. BP Erasure is developed by the concept of "lake controller" (algam boom prevention device, registered in NETIS (*) in 2013, in the ministry of land and transportation of Japan) and the former model "algam boom eraser" (algam boom prevention and water purification system).
In BP Erasure we can provide higher performance with higher technology. At the same time BP Erasure became more flexible in the various types of life. It can be used in private sector and government sector where people want safe water with less investment. Safe and pure water is the basic infrastructure in our society. Our mission is to create and protect it.

[8] FAQ


Q1. Where do you recommend to install BP Erasure?
A1. 
Purpose: Drinking water plant, hatchery fish, aquarium, food processing factory, drinking water in emergency, no electricity area, refugee camp, restaurant, hotel, condominium. BP Erasure is good in small-middle scale demand.
Type of water : River, lake, pond, water recycle plant, dam, prevention of VOC in underground water.
* If you don't have knowledge and data, please ask us in advance.

Q2. Can it be used to produce drinking water and irrigation water?
A2.  Irrigation water : Possible. If you use BP Erasure it can prevent soil contamination.
Drinking water : Possible. Although the level of purification must be researched well in advance, BP Erasure has the function to resolve algae, bacteria, dirt and bad smell. (If it's too dirty it takes more time). In case sand or mud are contained, you may need pre-treatment process. In that case please ask as the proper installation.

Q3. How often should I change titanium dioxide (water purification agent)?
A3. It depends on the scale and type of water. We support you after you installed it. Please ask as how often it will be changed.

Q4. Can it be effective in any type of contamination?
A4.  BP Erasure can't resolve high concentration material, inorganic material (heavy metal) and radioactive substance. We will judge if BP Erasure can be applied in your area. Please provide us with the information regarding type of water, type of soil, geographical conditions. We calculate the effect and initial cost, operation scheme.
If the contamination is serious, it may be caused by multiplex factors. In such case you may need the proper treatment of waste disposal as well as water purification. If BP Erasure is not sufficient to solve your problem, we have more solutions. Please contact us.


Q5. How fast can BP Erasure purify water?
A5.  Following figures are the average benchmark.
<Capacity of water purification>
BP-1 x 1 : 1,440L/day
BP-2 x 1 : 2.880L/day
<Restraint of green color caused by plankton under water *approximately>
BP-1 x 1 : 12 m3/day
BP-2 x 1 : 25.5m3/day
●The result depends on the numbers of device, scale, type of water, capacity of pump.
