MSR SE-200™ Community Chlorine Maker



hi my name's Zack listen I'm the MSR manager and today I'm going to be talking to you about the MSR SC 200 community chlorine maker it comes in this little kit which includes the electrical or native device a power adapter for 12 volt battery a saltwater solution preparation and storage bottle a starter packet of salt for making your first solution the chlorine storage bottle a couple of different measuring tools for ensuring you're adding the correct quantity of chlorine a small packet of test strips for testing to ensure that you're actually getting the dose you desired an instruction booklet and then there are pictorial instructions printed on the inside of the box the first step in preparing to make corn is producing the saltwater solution so to do that I use my salt water solution bottle and I'm going to add salt to the fill line here on the bottom of the bottle so remove the cap it takes about 50 grams of salt for each run of the community corn maker so I'm going to add my salt can it level it out a little bit and make sure that I'm at the line or close to it the next thing I'm going to do is add water the water is added to the fill line on the bottle replace the lid and shake until all the salt is dissolved so the next thing you want to do when you're going to make Corinne is connected to the system to power so the kit comes with alligator clips for adapting to a 12-volt battery but there are also options available for a vehicle adapter and for a wall outlet adapter the first thing you do is connect your adapter to the device next use your alligator adapters to connect to the positive and negative electrodes on the battery it is important to use a 12 volt battery but you can use any amperage from a normal vehicle battery to a motorcycle battery when doing this you should get indicator lights showing up on the actual device showing that you have connected to power the next step in the process now that we have our salt solution prepared and our device connected to power is to actually make the Coronet solution so to do that I'm going to add my brine water to the device filling to the line on the side of the device then I'm going to push the power button once this will start the electrolysis reaction the white light indicates that it's working properly as the electrolysis process begins you're going to see bubbles forming and the lights can continue to stay on white for a 5 to 7 minutes until the system is run is done running at which point it will beep and you will know that you've successfully prepared your chlorine solution now that the run is complete the next thing to do is to treat the water this can be done by using the measuring cup or the scoop that comes with the kit the scoop is designed to measure the correct amount to treat 120 liter jerrycan the one run produces about 50 milliliters of 0.8% chlorine which is sufficient to treat 200 litres of water which is 1020 liter Jenkins or 1 200 liter barrel of water you can dose directly from the device by pouring into the scoop or if you want to dose it later you can use the storage bottle that comes with the kit this allows you to either transport the solution farther away from where you store the battery or to use it later in the day as it keeps this chlorine fresh for up to 24 hours now that I have my coin solution prepared I'm gonna use it to treat a 20 liter jerrican to do that I'm going to use the scoop that came with the kit you want to make sure that you fill the scoop full next I'm going to remove the lid for my drink and you want to take care to make sure you get all of the corn solution into the container then it's a good idea to either mix or stir the container to ensure that the chlorine is evenly spread throughout and you're gonna wait 30 minutes before consuming any of the water to ensure that all the microbes have been eliminated now that we've waited 30 minutes to ensure that the water has been treated we want to confirm that sufficient chlorine was added by using the provided test strips take one out of the foil packet and move it back and forth in a small sample of water for two to five seconds once the color has developed compare it to the scale on the outside of the packet to ensure that sufficient amount of chlorine has been added as you can see we're between 1 and 2 ppm of coin added which is exactly where we want to be to make sure our water is safe the next thing I want to talk to you about is how to know what's going on when the device doesn't operate there's two main reasons that it won't run the first is insufficient power what will happen is when you connect it to a battery that doesn't have enough power and you try to run it you will get a read error light immediately that's how you know that it's time to charge your battery the other issue that can occur is that you can have not enough salt in your brine water solution if that's the case when you add it to the device and try to operate it you'll get a purple indicator light and the run won't complete this can either happen immediately as it just did or partway through the run depending on how much Brian you do have in your solution in order the device it's important to rinse it before you store it if you don't white crystals like this will develop inside and outside of it to get rid of them once they have developed all you need to do is rinse with vinegar or water solution all the crystals should read azov' and then you can easily dispose of them thank you for joining me for this tutorial on the MS RSC 200 community chlorine maker you are now equipped to use it to treat water for years to come if you have any other questions please visit our website amos our global health comm or email us at global thanks

  1. Brandon and the MSR team, this is great technology, it is applicable to the grassroots communities here in KENYA. I will share the message to many wherever I shall go. It is a solution to many that are taking unsafe water more especially this time when water is scarce due to climate change.

  2. Talk about complicated process. Tanzania all we did was have a couple liters of chlorine bleach and use a cap full for a 20 liters.
