Can Pure™ Water Purification System.

The Can Pure™ Water Purification System (WPS) is a complete stand-alone water treatment system designed to produce potable water in remote field conditions, emergency and disaster situations. Compact, portable, no electricity, gravity or challenging chemicals required.

The Can Pure™ Water Purification System uses a patent pending, dual process purification system incorporating microfiltration and chlorination eliminating a wide spectrum of micro-organisms, cysts, virus and bacteria. The Can Pure™ WPS is capable of producing as much as 50,000 L per day of safe, potable water. To see a gallery of images highlighting the Can Pure™ WPS

Dual Process Purification



A unique intake strainer and 5-stage microfiltration system ensures that all raw water is filtered to 1 micron absolute before entering the bladder for final chemical purification and treatment. Filtering to 1 micron absolute physically removes cysts such as Giardia and Cryptosporidium that chemical only systems cannot remove.

The 1 micron absolute rated filter cartridge meets or exceeds the three-log (99.9%) removal requirements described in NSF Standard 53 for cyst sized particles. Independent lab validated tests performed by the filter manufacturer using live organisms resulted in the removal of 99.99 percent of Giardia lamblia cysts and 99.98% of Cryptosporidium parvum oocysts. Absolute rated one micron filter media removes cysts sized particles for safe, cyst-free drinking water while also substantially removing sediment, silt and turbidity. Reusable pre-filters dramatically reduce the need for replacement filters.

Chemical Treatment and Purification

Once the raw water has been filtered to 1 micron absolute, it enters the bladder for final chemical treatment and purification using reliable, measurable and easy to use tablet technology.

AQUATABS® are an internationally recognized brand of NaDCC water purification tablet that have been tried and tested in a wide range of natural and polluted water sources. When added to water they dissolve to release a measured dose of Hypochlorous acid (free available chlorine) that is universally recognized as a safe and effective water disinfectant or purification agent. This unique tablet, while chlorine based, will not colour the water or leave objectionable chemical tastes resulting in a very palatable water.

AQUATABS® have been successfully used by all the major international aid agencies and NGO's such as the World Health Organization (WHO), UNICEF, MSF (Medecins Sans Frontiers), and Red Cross Organizations since the mid 1980's for water disinfection, often in the most adverse and difficult conditions. AQUATABS'® active ingredient, NaDCC (ACL60) is certified to NSF/ANSI Standard 60 and has been approved / registered for drinking water treatment by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the World Health Organization (WHO). A detailed conformance report is available upon request.

AQUATABS® water purification tablets are effective against a wide spectrum of micro-organisms with excellent long term storage stability. They are significantly easier to use and safer to dose, store and handle than liquid or granular calcium or sodium hypochlorite (chlorine products).
