Aquamira® Filtration Technology begins with a proprietary blend of microscopic carbon, binder and antimicrobial particles. This blend of particles is heated beyond the melting point of the binder material until the particles adhere to each other in a process called “sintering”. The result is a highly porous, carbon impregnated filter block with a tightly controlled pore structure. Aquamira Filtration Technology incorporates both mechanical and adsorptive filtration processes to remove both physical and chemical contaminants. Aquamira® Filtration Technology is tested and certified to remove >99.9% of Cryptosporidium and Giardia*. (Test Results are available upon request) The activated coconut shell carbon reduces waterborne chemicals, improves taste and eliminates offensive odors.
Light Weight, Portable and easy to use the Aquamira Frontier Emergency Water Filtration System is an ideal choice for emergency kits, foreign travel, backcountry outdoor and anywhere water is questionable.
