AQUA Logic Travel Mate drinking water filterTravel Mate waterfilter


The AQUA Logic Travel Mate filter has been developed as a personal drinking water filter for travelers, during expeditions and mountaineering, but also for disaster management, refugee camps and as survival kits for aid- and development workers.


Filter characteristics

The filter functions without additional chemicals and has been manufactured from high standard non-corrosive parts.

The filter medium consists of three different active elements.

  1. The outside surface is made of a special selected and sintered ceramic material. The acting compound is 'Diatomaceous earth' which is a natural mineral that has its origin from algae, or phytoplankton. The ceramic material has very small cavities (micro-membrane) by which dirt and micro-organisms are sieved out.
  2. The inside of the ceramic medium consists of a fine granulated Activated Carbon. This Activated Carbon is made out of Coconut shell. By Carbonizing this organic material, a huge matrix of adsorbing material is created (1 gram of Activated Carbon has a adsorption surface of about 1000 m²). This material adsorbs bad taste, odor and color as well as chloride and other chemicals.
  3. In the ceramic material as well as in the Activated Carbon small Silver partials (colloidal Silver) are added. When Silver comes in contact with micro-organisms it will change their DNA structure which makes it impossible for them to multiply anymore. In that way micro-organisms like bacteria are turned harmless.

The combination of these three natural elements provides a reliable general purpose water filter medium with a bacterial reduction of at least 99.99 %.

Floating dirt like sand etc. is sieved out by the intake filter that is attached to the intake hose . An integrated weight ensures that the intake filter is always fully submerged, so that no floating dirt and air can enter the filter. At the same time an adjustable foam float prevent the intake filter from sucking dirt from the bottom.

The reason why the Travel Mate can be called unique is the fact that the hand pump is integrated in the filter cartridge. This makes the Travel Mate a very compact mobile water filters and very simple to use.

Cleaning the Travel Mate water filter is an easy job. Depending on the turbidity and contamination of the water source, the surface of the filter cartridge can be clocked up. By the aid of the enclosed Cleaning-Pad, the filter surface can easily be brushed clean. Also the thickness of the ceramic tube can be measured with the enclosed limit gauge. This is a simple way to check the ceramic wall thickness which indicates when the cartridge needs to be replaced.
