STREAM Disinfectant Generator

The STREAM Disinfectant Generator provides a continuous flow of disinfectant solution from common salt and electricity. The chlorine-based solution generated by the STREAM System complies with national and international guidelines for disinfecting surfaces, medical devices, and instruments. The STREAM Disinfectant Generator is ideal for rural and urban hospitals and health clinics, drinking water treatment in small communities, disaster relief, and humanitarian aid.

The STREAM system can produce enough disinfectant to treat up to 240,000 liters (60,000 gallons) per day of water. The unit operates on most power supplies including 110/220 VAC single phase, and 12 volts DC such as a car battery or solar panel. It is built into a hard plastic waterproof case. However, all of the components in the system are waterproof and can be exposed to a driving rain while the lid on the case is open, and the system is operating. The unit is fully automated ensuring a consistent chlorine concentration of 5,000 mg/l. 5,000 mg/l is the standard concentration for cleaning hospital settings and is easily diluted for hand washing at 500 mg/l or 2,000 to 1 for drinking water applications at 2.5 mg/l dose, or 1,000 to 1 for a 5.0 mg/l dose. The unit has a self-cleaning feature that helps keep the system clean and extends the time interval between the acid washing cleaning protocol.  The cleaning interval is determined by how much scale forming material is in the salt and water used in the system.

The system comes with all peripheral components including:

• Measuring Devices
• Salt Storage Container
• Brine Filter & Container
• Water Hardness Test Strip
• Chlorine Test Strips
• Spare – Pump Hose
• Electrical Adapter US/UK Plug
• Flash-drive with Training Videos

USAID has conducted an Environmental Assessment of the Stream system for a major health care facility program in Haiti. A copy of the environmental assessment is available on request.
