Potential use of Silver Nanoparticles in water filter tanks as an antimicrobial agent

Halima R


The packing foam was used to suspend the silver nanoparticles so as to avoid the problems of free nanoparticles getting mixed with drinking water. The contact time required to kill the microorganism along with various designs of incorporating the packaging foam in the tank is studied to ensure the best design to suspend the polymer in the filtration tank will be studied by taking the microbial count. A comparison of the treated and untreated water is done by taking the microbial count. This technology will prove as a cheap and simple method to ensure the elimination of microbial content in water filter tanks.
