General information

A basic drinking water purifier unit, operates on the precoat filtration principle:

  • Uses pre-chlorination.
  • Flocculation and coagulation with ferric chloride.
  • Adsorption with powdered activated carbon.
  • Filtration using candle filters. Replaceable candle filters come pre-treated with diatomite and activated carbon.


  • TWA 6: Flow rate of 5.4m³/h at 75NTU
  • TWA 10: Flow rate of 10m³/h at … NTU

Unit cannot desalinate brackish or sea water.

Can reduce maximum turbidity from 500NTU to 5NTU.

Disinfection meets WHO-recommended levels.

It is included in the standard International Federation Water and Sanitation ERU (e.g., Austrian and German Red Cross Societies). Not an ICRC standard.

This technology will be phased out for international deployment by 2010.
