The Sport Berkey® Portable Water Filter is the ideal personal protection traveling companion, featuring the Ionic Adsorption Micro Filtration System. The bottle's filter removes or dramatically reduces a vast array of health-threatening contaminants from questionable sources of water, including remote lakes and streams, stagnant ponds and other water supplies.
The media within the filter element removes contaminants by a surface phenomenon known as adsorption, the molecular attraction of substances to the surface of the media. As the bottle is pressed, the source water is forced through the filter. The quality and volume of media used, determine the rate of adsorption. The flow rate or time of exposure through the filter has been calculated to yield the greatest volume removal of toxic chemicals caused by pollution from industry and agriculture.
This exclusive filter element is impregnated with proprietary absorbing media that promotes ionic absorption of pollutants within the micro-porous element, such as aluminum, cadmium, chromium, copper, lead, mercury, and other dangerous heavy metals.The "tortuous path" structure of these pores gives it its unique characteristics. The Sport Berkey achieves 99.9% contaminant reduction.
The Sport Berkey's sturdy top loop can be used for hanging. Rotating the loop to the side causes the sipping tube to pop up automatically, so your hands never need to touch the fresh water tube.
If using a source of water that might contain extreme bacteriological or viral contamination, it's recommended that two drops of plain chlorine or iodine be added to each refill before filtering. This will kill minute pathogens such as viruses. The disinfectant will then be filtered from the water entirely, removing its odor, color and taste and leaving only purified water.
Dimensions: 2.75"D x 11"H (including top ring). Holds 20 oz. water.
Filter element life: Ranges from 640 refills from a municipal water source, to 160 refills from a highly turbid water source.
