Katadyn filters for emergencies

Just like many other people around the world, we are profoundly shocked by the most recent events in Japan and wish the population in the crisis area much strength for the coming days and weeks. Katadyn is doing everything to offer our partners on site the best possible support and to help the people affected. Safe drinking water supplies are a top priority after a disaster of this scope. Our Katadyn filters reliably eliminate bacteria, protozoa, cysts, algae and other pathogens from water. However, they are not suitable for treating water that has been exposed to nuclear contamination. Though they are capable of retaining radioactive particles and adsorbing dissolved radioactive substances in their activated carbon, this exposes the filter itself to radioactive contamination and therefore poses a major health risk.
