The small unit purifier is approved for providing safe drinking water for military personnel

Seldon Technologies Inc. announced that the Seldon WaterBox 300 MIL has passed the rigorous NSF P248 Protocol, Appendix B, assuring military personnel of safe drinking water, free of viruses, bacteria and cysts, anywhere in the world.

The Seldon WaterBox 300 MIL is a small unit water purifier using patented nano–filtration technology and is the first of Seldon’s product line to pass the NSF P248 protocol.

P248 is a test protocol designed by the U.S. Army Military Public Health Command and administered by the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF International) that ensures rigorous performance requirements are met.

The WaterBox delivers great-tasting water without the need for chemicals, heat or wait time. The unit can be set-up in less than five minutes and the filtration technology removes harmful pathogens and reduces sediment.

The WaterBox can purify up to 30,000 liters of raw water at a wide temperature range. Weighing less than 35 kg, it is easy to transport. It is rugged and produces potable water from any source at a rate of 2 liters per minute. Multi-voltage power supply options adapt to any field situation. The low maintenance design means the system is always ready for use.

Already in use by the Naval Special Warfare Group, U.S. Army Special Forces, U.S. Marine Corps and U.S. Air Force units, the WaterBox MIL 300 is field proven in multiple challenging environments.

Not only does Seldon’s patented Nanomesh technology ensure the water is safe to drink, it produces great tasting water. Other filtration technologies such as reverse osmosis (RO) remove healthy minerals from water, leading to poor taste. Chemical treatment adds constituents that not only taste bad, but also add unpleasant odor. The Nanomesh media makes water both potable and palatable.

Seldon Nanomesh puts breakthrough water purification technology into the hands of any user. Built on the unique material properties of the carbon nanotube, Nanomesh surpasses other filtration or chemical treatments. Specifically designed for military, disaster recovery and humanitarian assistance agencies, the WaterBox represents a next generation advancement in portable, point-of-use water filtration technology.
