Abrégé anglais




The present invention is a unit for separation of solids and other materials
in
suspension in fluids and for collection of same, and for aeration,
oxygenation,
purification, cooling and revitalization of water.
Due to contamination of water by natural processes, industry, accidents,
marine
transportation, and waste disposal, better method strategies are needed.
Degradation
and reduction of the quality of water is a problem worldwide in natural
environments,
such as rivers, lakes and oceans and in rural, agricultural and urban areas.
There is
much concern about the concentration of plastic trash, and garbage gyres the
size of
Texas have been observed in the Pacific Ocean. These materials do not
biodegrade,
become smaller and smaller and are often toxic. Dr. Charles Moore of the
Algalita
Foundation estimates the amount of plastic in the oceans to be in trillions of
pieces.
http://www.cbsnews.com/news/ worlds-oceans-plagued-by-269000-tons-of-plastic-
pollution/ Note Bill 75, Microbead Elimination and Monitoring Act, 2015 in
Ontario,
Canada. Preliminary experiments have shown that the unit described in this
application it is effective in recovering/removing finely dispersed
particulate to 60% or
better result, and it separates other matter and materials in suspension from
fluid
streams. As well it is effective in aerating, oxygenating, purifiying, cooling
and

revitalizing water. Separated materials can be recycled after collection, for
a return
on investment (ROI) eliminating or reducing of further adulteration of
chemicals to
water. Small functioning models of tabletop size will be cost effective,
suitable for kits
and 3D printing, and the unit will be scalable to oceangoing dimensions. Units
may be
coupled together for greater functionality.
The present invention is an apparatus or device for aeration, oxygenation,
purification, cooling and revitalization of water and for separation of solids
and other
materials in suspension in fluids, having a hollow body, tubing, a source of
flow or
power, a support, and catchment units for drained and separated fluids and
soilds, and
an external protective casing.

Apparatus for Removing and Sorting Particulate and Other Materials from Fluid
and for Regenerating Water
CLAIMS
It is known that the rotation of a vortex moves particles in liquid. It is
known that a
vortex can be generated in a container. It is known that a vortex can be
created or
activated by an external force of either mechanical or passive means. The
present
invention makes use of the mechanical and physical forces of a vortex in an
egg,
elongated egg or vessel or similar container.
1. The unit is characterised by the fact that the movement of fluid in a
vortex
produces differences in temperature arise, via introduction of air into the
vortex, this
which leads to cooling interactions. The downward pointing egg produces
implosion in
the vortex, which is a cooling force (Schauberger, Steiner).
2. The unit is further characterized by the introducution of air into fluids,
resulting in
oxygenatation and regeneration of the quality of water
3. The unit is characterised by the fact that the spiraling solid and semi-
solid materials
are forced out and separated from the liquid suspension which carries them,
thus
making them separate and collectable,
4. The unit decribed is characterised by the fact that it can process a
multiplicity of
substances in fluid suspensions
5. The unit is characterised by the fact that it is beneficial in nature as it
purifies without
chemicals and that the discharge of water from it back into source can improve
its
condition.
6. The unit may be made portable, so the final steps of sorting and
purification of
particulates and the like from fluid could be done at the point of use, or it
could be
deployed to occur at a more distant remove.
7. The unit will be scalable, from tabletop to oceangoing size, and can be
manufactured to be built from kits or made with a 3D printer.
BENEFITS
Schauberger's discoveries, among others, demonstrate that water can be
improved
by imitating nature's methods, and thus regenerate the quality of water,
cooling and
revitalizing it.
The unit described creates a vortex which incorporates air into the body of
fluid and
results in implosion or cyclonic energy, which leads to temperature changes.
The unit
will cool the environment and beneficially influence climate.
By using a floating collecting system comprising the separating device of the
present
invention, large areas of waterborne garbage in the form of gyre plastics,
slime, algae,
oil and detritus can be collected effectively, and environmental conditions
can be
improved significantly.
The unit will be scalable - from small desktop and domestic size to oceangoing
models
It can be 3D printable and can be made to assemble from kits.
Applications include (but are not limited to)
Installation/suspension with a secure belt, hook, rope or cable on a bridge
over a
channel or river. With a winch, the unit could be raised or lowered into
flowing
water to benefit the quality of water it processes.

This unit or multiples of these units may be supported on pivotable pillars in
rivers or
other areas with water flow to create beneficial alteration of water quality
(Schauberger).
The unit may be used in an independent buoyant structure such as a round
lifesaving
device or vessel with section to lower it and GPI to track it.
Nurdles and mermaid's tears - collection and separation of plastic
particulate, from
rivers, lakes and oceans and removal of bisphenols therewith
Control and removal or biofilms, algae blooms, flood remediation
Reduction of pharmaceuticals and other unwanted substances from water
(anticipated)
Refinement and separation of fluid solution, emulsion, suspension or the like
Industrial uses - manufacturing and mining - removal of fibers from fluid -
fabric and
asbestos, laundry plants, the food industry, and paper-mill industry.
Agricultural uses - farm wastes, processing foodstuffs, aquaculture,
irrigation, weirs
Urban uses - sewage plants and systems and municipal pipes - in land drains -
in open
and closed channels - industrial pipes - collection of effluent for processing
-
phosphate separation and collection - city water quality management
Domestic applications such as cleaning of home plumbing and heating units,
home
water systems, bathing facilities
Placement in river path to remediate and benefit flow via serpentine flow
Collection of debris from water related disasters like Fukushima
Surface collection of oil spills from water
Restoration of natural waterways, lakes or bays by deployment in flow of water
on
pillar where its rounded external curves will revitalize river flow
(Schauberger)
Object of beauty in home, garden and water installations
Video and photographic documentation available upon request
Those skilled in the art will understand that the present invention is not
limited with
respect to the materials from which the unit may be engineered. While this
invention
has been particularly shown and described with references to preferred
embodiments
thereof, it will be understood by those skilled in the art that various
changes in form
and details may be made therein without departing from the scope of the
invention
encompassed by the appended claims.
