Microbiologically Safe Drinking Water in 60 Seconds with CamelBak® All Clear™ UV Water Purification System
Portable Technology Takes Worry and Hassle Out of Microbiological Purification for Personal Hydration
PETALUMA, Calif. (March 6, 2012) – The creators of hands-free hydration have once again introduced another bright idea. Now available nationwide, the CamelBak® All Clear™ Microbiological UV Water Purifier is a portable water purification system that takes the worry, hassle and guesswork out of making water microbiologically safe for drinking – in just 60 seconds.
All Clear features a high-powered ultraviolet light that neutralizes 99.9999 percent of bacteria, 99.99 percent of viruses and 99.9 percent of protozoa. In three simple steps, users secure the cap, hold the power button down for 2 seconds and rotate the bottle allowing the ultraviolet light technology to destroy and neutralize waterborne viruses and bacteria. An LCD screen reveals when the purification cycle is complete and thus when the water is safe to drink.
All Clear (MSRP $99) is extremely fast, sterilizing 0.75 liters of water in 60 seconds, and the bulb lasts more than 10,000 cycles – the equivalent of purifying 3 liters per day for nearly seven years. It is ideally suited for global adventurers, backcountry enthusiasts, disaster preparedness kits, family camping trips and everyday situations where water quality is questionable.
“We recognized that the activities and travels of our consumers often take them places where clean drinking water isn’t readily available, so we wanted to provide a portable, easy-to-use system to overcome that challenge,” said Jon Austen, Director of Product Management for CamelBak. “We’re using the same technology that has been safely and effectively used as a germicidal disinfection agent in water treatment facilities for decades, but in a simple, take-anywhere system.”
