Product removes major nuclear contaminants from drinking water
Seychelle Water Filtration Products, a DBA of Seychelle Environmental Technologies Inc., introduced a new radiological filter for its water filtration systems.
“We felt that it was important to develop a filter to meet the concerns of a nuclear disaster similar to what has just occurred in Japan, where drinking water sources become contaminated with radioactive waste and by products,” said President and CEO Carl Palmer. “After much research and development and extensive testing by a fully accredited independent laboratory, our new filter accomplishes the objective we had hoped for: the removal of 100% of radium, radon-222, uranium and cesium-134 and iodine greater than 91% from contaminated drinking water sources. Radiological filters will be of great aid to the people in Japan (53 reactors), as well as many other countries that have similar reactors such as the U.S. (104), France (59), Russia (31), South Korea (20), UK (19) and Canada (18)." There are 11 other countries in the world with lesser numbers of nuclear reactors.
The new radiological filter will be commercially available in the next 60 to 90 days. Seychelle is preparing several marketing strategies to support the new filter’s introduction.
Furthermore, for every filter sold, Seychelle will donate $1 to the Japanese Disaster Relief Fund.
