Nuclear filter developed for portable water treatment

A radiological filter for portable water treatment which removes 100% of major nuclear contaminants in drinking water has been developed by California-based Seychelle Water Filtration Products.

Announcing the radiological filter, Carl Palmer president and CEO of Seychelle, said it was important to develop a filter to meet the concerns of a nuclear disaster similar to that in Japan where drinking water sources become contaminated with radioactive waste and byproducts.

"After much research and development, and extensive testing by a fully accredited independent laboratory, our new filter accomplishes the objective we had hoped for," said Palmer, "the removal of 100% of radium, radon 222, uranium, and cesium 134; and iodine greater than 91%, from contaminated drinking water sources - and now we have it!"

The proprietary radiological filter will be commercially available within the next 60-90 days, and Seychelle is preparing several marketing strategies to support the new filters' introduction. For every filter sold, Seychelle will donate US$ 1.00 to the Japanese Disaster Relief Fund.

Seychelle's regular Ionic Adsorption Micron Filtration has been tested extensively by independent government laboratories in the US and throughout the world to strict EPA/ANSI protocols and NSF Standards 42 and 53.
