Water Pasteurization – Currently Out of Stock

HydroPic
HydroPic
It has been known for quite sometime (especially in the dairy industry) that many liquids do not have to be boiled in order to kill harmful bacteria. Instead, disease-causing organisms in water may be killed by exposure to lower levels of heat in a process called pasteurization. Water that has been heated to 65ºC (150ºF) for a short period of time is free from microbes, including Escherichia coli, Rotaviruses, Giardia, and the Hepatitis A virus. At around 70ºC (160ºF), milk and other foods are pasteurized. The HydroPic is a simple, re-usable device that indicates when adequate temperatures for water pasteurization have been reached.Weight .5 lb. (0.2 kg)

Pump Modifications

Pump Pressure Plate
Pressure Plate
Pressure Plate
As part of its work in water purification, WaterStep encountered a need to move water from India Mark II pumps into elevated tanks for chlorination and distribution, something ordinary India Mark II pumps can not do. In response to this need, WaterStep developed the Pump Pressure Plate. This product pressurizes water coming out of INDIA MARK II pumps, such that it can reach heights of 30 ft. (9.1 m) or more. Once installed, the Pump Pressure Plate eliminates the need to fill, carry, and lift buckets of water into tanks, which are often on raised platforms.The Pump Pressure Plate can be installed on an India Mark II pump in a short period of time using very few tools. A brief instructional video on how to install the pressure plate is located in our videos section.
