Portable Water Filtration Process
Our unique portable water filtration system uses thousands of ultrafiltration hollow fibre membrane strands. Each membrane strand contains billions of microscopic pores. Household water pressure pushes water molecules through these pores towards the hollow centre of the membrane. The membrane filtration provides 99.9999% reduction of bacteria and 99.99% of virus by mechanical means. Filtered water then flows through each fibre and is distributed to every household fixture.
Due to the small pore size, particles that are too large to pass through are physically blocked out, while dissolved salts and essential minerals freely pass through.
The portable water filtration process has tremendous benefits:
- removes all bacteria and viruses – clean water for campers and hikers
- retains healthy minerals
- filter is effective for at least 3 years
- our process is derived from commercial water bottling operations
Unlike Reverse Osmosis, Ultrafiltration does not remove the dissolved mineral salts, hence the filtered water is not acidic and provides improved health benefits.
Our portable water filtration system is the lightest and most compact portable filter on the market. It fits readily in a coat pocket or backpack. The filter comprises of three stages :
- Front steel mesh to remove suspended matter.
- UF filtration cartridge to remove all cysts, protozoa, bacteria and viruses.
- Activated carbon cartridge to remove chemical contamination and dissolved organic compounds.
The Litree TravelSaver provides a flow of 0.3 l/hr of filtered drinking water.
The Litree Travelsaver comprises of a hand pump action filtration system. The water is withdrawn from the raw water source via a suction pipe and head. The suction head comprises of a removable 50 micron stainless steel strainer.This captures larger particles including any suspended matter. The raw water is then forced by means of a hand pump through a 0.01 micron ultrafiltration module, where all biological contamination is removed. A third stage activated carbon filter removes any chemical contamination . The filtered water can then be transferred into an optional water bladder, or another water container .
