The idea standing behind the "Carrypack" system emerged because of the need of safe drinking water for Outdoor Team. Technological progress allowed to resign from the previous distinction between short-term and long-term drinking water. The "Carrypack" system gives the teams access to drinking water of the highest purity class, regardless of the place of water acquisition. It is a modern water treatment plant reduced to backpack-size. The system can be used to treat water from various sources, i.e. wells, rivers, lakes, groundwater. It improves the taste and aroma. The system prevents bacteriological, chemical and radioactive contamination, guaranteeing the highest drinking water quality
Heavy metal cations (like iron Fe, manganese Mn, copper Cu2+, nickel Ni2+, lead Pb2+, etc., and extremely toxic, like mercury Hg2+, cadmium Cd2+, thalium Tl2+, arsenic As3+ and others). Anions like nitrates NO3-, nitrites NO2-, phosphates PO4, chromates CrO42-, cyanides CN- (also cyanide complexes with metal cations), arsenites AsO33- and arsenates AsO43-, sulfides S2-, and many more: inorganic and organic anions, like phenoxides PhO-, anions of anion detergents R-SO3- etc. Harmful and dangerous microorganisms: bacteria, funghi, viruses, algae, protozoa (including clostridia and cryptosporidium type bacteria).
All processes are automated, the device works on flow-basis. The Rutchay Water Treatment System is a class of devices, applied where there are no basic data or the quality of water is variable and when every drop of water is vital..
