Katadyn® Water Processing Device Pocket Size
Always Clean Water for Cooking and Drinking.
Water is life when it is clean and free of germs, and there’s enough of it. If one is travelling for a longer period in the wild, water in sufficient quantities doesn't fit in the backpack or is too heavy to be carried over larger distances. It’s the same for travel in foreign countries where there is not enough potable water, or in local situations when the water supply has been contaminated by flooding, fertiliser or chemical accidents. A water filter is not just the rescuer of last resort. On the road, it saves carrying water by the litre because the device will turn rain or river water (if it is not the Ganges) into clean, germ-free water.
Pump Filter: Potable Water Everywhere and at All Times.
Cook it, peel it or leave it. That's the tried and true advice of those who are experienced in travel overseas, but it cant be implemented all the time. Opportunities to boil water while travelling are hard to find and in the wild facilities don’t even exist.
The Katadyn® water processing device in pocket size turns polluted water or river water or rain into potable water which can be consumed directly or used for cooking. The Katadyn® replaceable silver impregnated ceramic filter element cleans up to 50,000 litres of water, even murky water, and it will work for decades. The pores of the filter are 0.2 microns small – smaller than most microorganisms. Protozoa like Legionella, Giardia or Cryptosporidium, and bacteria and other pathogens, as well as algae, spores and sediment, are blocked and filtered out. The ceramic can be cleaned and used again. A calibrator for determining when the filter must be replaced is included.
The Katadyn® water processing device in pocket size is as simple to use as its principle of operation: The water is first fed through a hose with a pre-filter which separates out particles which are larger than 130 microns, and then pumped by hand through the ceramic filter. The clean water can then run off into a container. If the water tastes musty or is a little murky, it is recommended to use an additional charcoal filter which can be installed on the exit hose. A litre of water will take about a minute to clean. The Katadyn® water processing device in pocket size is compact (24 × 6 cm) and weighs only 550 g so that it will fit easily in any backpack.
