Geigerrig In-Line Virus Filter

Geigerrig



Camping, Hiking, Survival and Backpacking In-Line Water Filters

How the Filter Works:  GEIGERRIG’s Pressurized Hydration system pushes water through the in-line water filter allowing you to drink and access fresh water while you are on the go.   Yes, carrying a 1.05 oz in-line virus water filter on your backpacking trip is easier than loading your pack with water bottles and extra bladders.  

This technology incorporates a unique combination of the most advanced water filtration techniques and media science available today.  This patent pending design and manufacturing method has been thoroughly tested and certified by independent laboratories to consistently remove protozoan cysts, bacteria, and virus to ANSI/NSF Standard 52, and US EPA standards without the use of disinfecting chemicals such as chlorine, bromine, or iodine.  This in-line filter provides high flows and long service life in the most compact, lightweight cartridge available today.

Filter Size:  1.05 oz.    Save weight.  Take less “extra stuff” into the back country.   Use the water you find along the way.

Filter Capacity:  Gallons:  Rated to filter up to 100 gallons of water.   You now have a much greater range.   100 gallons can take you a long way!

 

Tested and Certifed

Removes: 
≥99.9% Protozoans (Cryptosporidium and Giardia)
≥99.9999% Bacteria (Raoutella terrigena)
≥99.99% Virus (MS-2 Bacteriophage)

 UQC™ Patented Universal Quick Connect Technology:  allows easy, leak free connection to all major brands of hydration systems.  Patented independent, two button design prevents accidental releases, while smooth lines prevent UQC connections from getting “hung-up” on equipment.  Patent #s

Replaceable Cartridge:  reduces waste, and replacement cost.

Activated Coconut Shell Carbon: reduces waterborne chemicals, improves taste and eliminates offensive odors.

Antimicrobial Technology:  suppresses the growth of bacteria, algae, fungus, mold and mildew within the filter media.

 

How it Works

This filter is a patent pending multi-stage, multi-media filtration system that incorporates the following filtration technologies:

1. Pre-Filter Sleeve:  A carbon impregnated porous plastic media sleeve provides structural support for down-stream HZ (High Zeta) media while at the same time acting as a pre-filter element to reduce sediment load, remove water borne chemicals, and industrial and pharmaceutical pollutants.  A variety of filter aids can be added to the porous plastic to provide a targeted approach to specific contaminants.

2. High Zeta (HZ) Filtration Media: A new category of nonwoven media that filters water with the efficiency of a membrane, but at higher flow rates and many times less pressure drop. HZ electro-adsorptive filter media improves water quality through a natural positive charge that is effective in removing submicron contaminants including bacteria and virus.

This innovative patented technology is based on attaching boehmite (AlOOH) fibers 2 nm in diameter x 250 nm in length onto a microglass structural fiber. The fibers create a highly electropositive nonwoven filter media with a zeta potential of >50 millivolts at pH7.2. HZ has excellent loading capacity due to the availability of more than 42,000 square meters of electropositive fiber surface area per square meter of filter media.  HZ contains 32% by weight powder activated carbon to improve the taste and odor of water by removing chlorine and humic compounds.
