Pure Water Technology


Timothy Whitehead

Industrial Design and Technology (2010)

Whilst travelling in Zambia, Timothy realised the need for easier access to drinking water and as a result began to develop Pure Water Technology. The product can filter and sterilise water in two minutes. The process is highly advanced as the filter reduces the water to 4 micron – making the water clear on the eye. Once it is clear an Ultra-violet bulb is used to sterilise the content, which is scientifically proven to kill 99.9% of harmful microorganisms. The product is small and compact for travelling in addition to being quick and easy to use through its wind-up function.
