SIPURION / Drinking Water Purificator


SIPURION provides the temporary, intermediate supply of potable water after natural ctastrophies.
It uses membrane technology and active carbon to extract most of the pathogens out of polluted water.
The white shell consists of three identical parts that are used as a stabile tripod construction in work mode. The small number of parts and the rugged design are optimized for comfortable and safe transport and rapid installation. The modular system can be used with a foot-operated pump or with an electrical pump. SIPURION supplies at least 200 persons over a period of maximal 6 months with at least 5 litres of potable water per day.
