The Lightweight Water Purification System was designed for the USMC, US Navy and SOCOM. It specifically addresses the need for a portable, lightweight, easily maintained, ALL SOURCE CAPABLE™ water purification unit.
The LWPS is a reverse osmosis (hyper-filtration) modular unit that is optimally equipped to achieve small scale, absolute water purification in any field condition. It was developed for use by highly mobile teams in remote areas or emergency and temporary sites. Its versatile footprint provides for self-contained potable water support without committing larger water production assets from a support structure. Thus, the LWPS is able to provide sustainable pure water support in expeditionary environments.
The LWPS has an easy access, open frame design and all connections are quick-release for easy maintenance and quick element or parts replacement. It is configured in an ultra-light weight, modular design to insure portability and adaptive layout. In addition to being ALL SOURCE CAPABLE™, the LWPS is capable of purifying any source water, even nuclear, chemical and biological (NBC) contaminated water.
