The Travel Berkey is small but powerful. This model is compact, so it's the perfect system for small homes, RV's, Boats, or apartments with limited space. These powerful systems purify both treated water and untreated raw water from such sources as remote lakes, streams, stagnant ponds, and water supplies in foreign countries, where regulations may be substandard at best. Perfect for outdoor activities and travel. It can give you peace of mind in environments where electricity or treated water may not be available.
Berkey systems remove pathogenic bacteria, cysts, and parasites entirely and extract harmful chemicals such as herbicides, pesticides, VOCs, organic solvents, radon 222, and trihalomethanes. They also reduce nitrates, nitrites and unhealthy minerals such as lead and mercury. These systems are so powerful, that they can remove red food coloring from water without removing the beneficial minerals your body needs. Virtually no other system can duplicate this performance.
The Travel Berkey system comes with everything you need to start purifying water:
- Upper and lower stainless steel chambers
- 2 Black Berkey Purification Elements
- 2 wingnuts
- 2 washers
- 1 priming button
- 1 stainless steel lid
- 1 spigot
- 1 rubber gasket to protect the base
How the Travel Berkey Operates:
Berkey water purifiers are the most practical, user-friendly and economical water purification systems available. To use, water is poured into the upper chamber. Gravity draws the water through the exclusive Black Berkey purification elements. Contaminants are captured on and within the micro-porous purification elements and are separated from the water. The purified water then collects in the lower chamber where it can be drawn through the spigot.
The Travel Berkey is so powerful, it can be used to purify non-potable or unhealthy water in situations where electricity and water pressure are not available. The Travel Berkey provides reliable, user-friendly, powerful, and economical water filtration in package small enough to transport if needed.
About Black Berkey Purification Elements:
Black Berkey Purification Elements are more powerful than any other gravity filter element currently available. In fact, Black Berkey purification elements underwent tests containing more than 10,000 times the concentration of pathogens per liter than is required by standard test protocol. This concentration of pathogens is so great that the post filtered water should be expected to contain 100,000 or more pathogens per liter (99.99% reduction - the requirement for pathogenic removal). Incredibly the purification elements removed 100%. Absolutely no pathogens were cultured from the effluent or were able to be detected, even under an electron microscope, setting a new standard in water purification.
Black Berkey purification elements are so powerful, they can remove red food coloring from water without removing the beneficial minerals your body needs. Virtually no other filtration element can duplicate this performance.
The powerful Black Berkey purification elements also remove or reduce pathogenic cysts, parasites, harmful or unwanted chemicals such as herbicides and pesticides, VOCs, detergents, organic solvents, trihalomethanes, cloudiness, silt, sediment, nitrates, nitrites, heavy metals, foul tastes, and odors, yet they leave in the healthful and beneficial minerals that your body needs.The Black Berkey purification element formulation has been tested by State & EPA accredited laboratories to exceed EPA & ANSI/NSF (Std. 53) protocol.
A Berkey water filter is a must have for emergency preparedness...and even everyday water consumption.
