Solar-Powered, Microbiological Water Purifier

General Information:

Businesses and small communities in remote locations can now take advantage of the same membrane technology used by large-scale water treatment plants in a compact, self-contained, alternative energy design.

The Sunspring™ provides high-quality potable water by passing it through millions of microscopic pores, physically removing pathogens, particulates, and turbidity.

The Sunspring™ can remove contaminants from virtually any water source including rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, shallow wells, and springs.

Features & Benefits:

  • Utilizes the same membrane technology chosen by large-scale water filtration plants.
  • Membranes physically block out and remove pathogens and particulates from water supply.
  • Significantly reduces colloids, turbidity, and organics.
  • Automated and efficient self-cleaning clycle flushes impurities.
  • Uses only solar power and can be used in remote locations, all around the world.
  • Water Point-of-Entry: Treats sources effectively & efficiently.
  • Requires minimal water pressure to operate efficiently.
  • Rain water harvesting for reuse as drinking water.
  • Low-Maintenance.
  • Increase water capacity through "Plug & Play".

Technical Specifications:

  • Maximum Peak Flow Rate (LPM/GPM) - Up to 17/4
  • Minimum Temperature (°C/°F) - >0/32
  • Maximum Temperature (°C/°F) - <38/100
  • Approximate Flush Volume (litres/USgal) - 45/12
