The desalinization kit is a handheld, portable kit that can treat seawater, transforming it into drinkable water.
The kit contains a plastic bag that the user will fill with seawater.
When one of the kit’s eight chemical bars is added to the bag, the process of desalting the water begins.
It takes about 60 minutes to make 473ml (one pint) of drinkable water. The plastic bag has a filter that will allow only freshwater to pass, and a valve that can be opened and closed for easy use.
There is also mending tape in the kit in case the bag tears. The kit container is made out of heavy, moulded plastic. In the event the bag is unusable, the kit container may be used to desalt the seawater, as well.
The volume of treated water per hour is 450ml. One pack can produce over 8 x 473ml of water or 3.8 litres.
