Water-Gen Introduces Next Generations Of SPRING Back-Carried Water Purification And GEN-350G Atmospheric Water Generation Units
Water-Gen - a leading provider of tactical water supply solutions to Armies, Police Forces, and NGOs - will introduce the next generations of its SPRING Back-Carried Water Purification and GEN-350G Atmospheric Water Generation units at the DSEI exhibition in London, September 10-13, Israel Pavilion, Hall South, Booth #S8-263.
A battery-operated, back-carried water purification unit, SPRING was developed in cooperation with the Israeli Ministry of Defense (MOD) and the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF), and has successfully completed extensive field and logistic trials prior to equipping the IDF with hundreds
of systems. Utilizing a specially-designed multi-barrier filtration method to purify chemical and microbiological contaminants - including pesticides, cyanide, bacteria, and viruses - the system represents a significant improvement over other solutions available today, and is the only one that complies with military water standards. SPRING provides fresh, potable water while a unique monitoring system continuously tracks the operational status of the unit and the quality of the water. If the unit detects a deviation from the required water quality, or any suspected
malfunction, it automatically shuts down and alerts the user in order to prevent consumption. The system, which weighs 12 kg, can purify 180 liters (45 gallons) of water per single battery, at a flow rate of 40-55 liters per hour (10-15 gallons/hour).
The GEN-350G Atmospheric Water Generation Unit creates water directly at the point of use from the natural humidity in the air. Requiring no additional infrastructure or consumables, the unit produces 450 liters/day at a remarkable efficiency of 310 kWatt-hour/liter - enabled by the plastic - that allows the production of 5 times more water per kilowatt of electricity consumed than any other solution. GEN-350G was a huge success at the NATO Capable Logistician Exercise 2013 (CL13) as a representative of the UK, and won a major US Army tender for the supply of a number of systems to Honduras.
