The London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine have tested and certified that two new LIFESAVER products are compliant with the National Sanitation Foundation’s stringent Military protocol NSF P248 – Emergency Military Operations Microbiological Water Purifiers.
The Military LIFESAVER jerrycan and the Military LIFESAVER hydrocarry II were tested and found to have exceeded the requirements as set out by the National Sanitation Foundation Protocol NSF P248. These requirements for bacteria are a 6 log reduction (99.9999% removal) and for viruses a 4 log reduction (99.99%) and for a 3 log reduction (99.9%) in Cryptosporidium parvum oocysts to be achieved over a volume of 150 litres and over a time period of 10 days. These reduction requirements are also shown in the NSF P231 protocol and the WHO guidelines for safe drinking water and are the basis for current UK and European legislation on drinking water standards.
“Compliance with NSF P248 demonstrates LIFESAVER’s position at the leading technological edge of Microbiological Water Purification” said Chris Kearney, Managing Director. “We at LIFESAVER systems will continue to demand of ourselves the use of innovative solutions and excellent design, to deliver the most reliable and trusted products available in the field today”.
