Solar Water Purification Portable Systems for Remote Locations and Emergency Disaster Response


Clean drinking water is one of the first requirements for sustaining human life and health and is especially critical in the case of natural disasters that disrupt local water supplies.

The SURVIVOR 300 is a light weight and compact solar powered portable watermaker installed in a shock resistant, non corrosive case, ready to plug in and run. All you need is a fresh water source from a lake, river, spring or well and a 12 VDC power source from your vehicle, off grid solar system or the SURVIVOR's self-contained battery pack and solar panels.

The SURVIVOR delivers approximately 50 gallons or 180 liters of fresh water per hour, 100% free of viruses or bacteria.  Every SURVIVOR 300 is a complete ready to operate system which includes a prefilter, an ultrafiltration membrane, an activated carbon filter and a diaphragm feed water pump.

Trunz Ultrafiltration Water Treatment Technology

Trunz Water Systems includes field tested proven water treatment technologies. Depending on the raw water quality the water treatment systems are equipped with two different filtration technologies.  SURVIVOR uses ultrafiltration which is suitable for fresh water sources from rivers, lakes, wells, boreholes. The ultrafiltration membrane removes organic contaminants, viruses, bacteria, cysts, etc. down to 0.04 micron without requiring toxic chemical treatment. Ultrafiltration works through a mechanical procedure. Raw water is filtered under pressure through a high-technology hollow fibre membrane. This process retains the natural minerals in the water.
