THE ADVANTAGES OF FORWARD OSMOSIS
Compare FTS membrane's 0.0007 micron pore size with other filters on the market.
Place our SELF-FILLING filters in water and nature takes over from there.
Our filters provide water, calories, electrolytes and Vitamin C.
FTS filters employ membranes tight enough to block salt ions from entering.
Forward Osmosis provides virtually clog-free performance.
FTS filters generate a good tasting nutrient drink from any water.
TECHNOLOGY ON LOAN
FTS filters are based on forward osmosis technology -- a natural process found almost everywhere in nature. So no chemicals, no pumping, no energy ... just simple osmosis. Nature's way.
FO WATER FILTERS
Use the Waterdrop in fresh or brackish water to generate up to 500 ml of clean, nutrient drink. The Waterdrop is isotonic at 355 ml, and completely full at 500 ml. This single-sided pouch is ready at 8 hrs (20 C temps) ... throw a handful in water at bedtime and they'll be ready for drinking all day.
Like the Waterdrop, use the Rainstick with fresh or brackish water. The double-sided membrane pouch and slightly less volume allow for a faster fill time of 4-6 hours. Isotonic at 220 ml, completely full at 350 ml.
The Ranger keeps you healthy on the go, generating 800 ml/hour of clean drink from virtually any water source.
Its two chamber design -- one for dirty water and one for clean -- means you can switch between using potable water and filtering dirty water without having to sterilize the system.
The Ranger is powered by 120ml sports drink syrup pouches generating 3 liters of drink per pouch.
Enhance your survival chances at sea with this passive desalinator that delivers critical calories as well as hydration. The single-use Mariner comes pre-loaded with the osmotic driver, so all you have to do is drop it in the ocean. The Mariner generates 500 ml of life-saving fluids in 10 hours when placed in salt water. Used by the US Coast Guard.
The HighSeas comes with 8 nutrient syrup charges that act as the osmotic driver. Each charges generates 500ml of drink, expanding the total capacity to 4 liters of lifesaving fluids. To use, simply inject one syrup charge into the green port, and fill the pouch with sea water through the red port. Generates 500 ml in 8 hours.
PURITY + RELIABILITY
FTS water filters work by osmosis. Neither gravity nor pressure are involved. No chemicals are needed.
Osmosis is a natural process -- it's how trees move water into their roots and up into their leaves. And it's very reliable. Have you ever heard of a tree root clogging? So when FTS filters are placed in water -- even very muddy water -- they simply swell up as clean water flows through the membrane walls of the pouch. When the pouch is full, just poke with a straw and drink.
Besides being super reliable, FTS filters also provide superior safety. Most personal water filters have pore sizes in the 0.1-0.2 micron range. But FTS filters have a 0.0007 micron pore size ... up to 200x better than the competition.
The 0.0007 micron pores in the FTS membrane are sized so that water molecules can pass through, but the contaminants in the dirty water cannot. The pores also have to be small enough to prevent the sugar molecules, electrolytes, and vitamins inside the pouch from leaking out. The sugars and electrolytes drive the filtration process by generating the osmotic pressure that draws the water molecules through the membrane.
The advantage of forward osmosis is that it combines very high purity with very high, non-clogging reliability. This is unique to forward osmosis and makes it the perfect technology for difficult water sources often found in disaster settings, travel in austere areas, and military operations.
