AUSA 2015: CamelBak Unveils New Water Purifier

At AUSA 2015, CamelBak shows off its compact, new water purification device. The Microbiological Advanced Purification System (MAPS) connects to the base of CamelBak Maximum Gear bladders and the drinking tube connects to the top of the device. The purifier will turn dirty, stagnant water into clean, drinking water, CamelBak officials maintain. Suction from the drinking tube pulls the water through a special membrane that removes debris as well as bacteria and viruses.

Once the user has emptied the bladder, contaminates can be drained from the filter though a special tube by squeezing a simple pump several times. Drinking through the purifier is easy as it has a very high flow rate.

CamelBak teamed up with Nepros, which traditional designs purifiers for the medical field.
