MUV - World's First Adaptable Water Filter

MUV is an adaptable water filter that gives you protection from contaminants in municipal water as well as all the way up to virus and bacteria protection in some of the most inhospitable places in the world. Using modular technology that works with a water bottle, hydration reservoir, as a straw, or as a gravity filter you get clean water anytime, anywhere.

Most water filters remove only one kind of particulate. MUV not only removes 99.999% of viruses and bacteria, but also allows you to change the filter modules for your specific water needs. If you are getting water from your tap at home in North America, you don’t need to be concerned about viruses being in your water. What you may find in your tap water is chlorine and metals. In this case you don’t need to use the MUV 3 module that removes viruses, or the MUV 2 that removes bacteria, but you would want to use the MUV 1 module that removes chemicals and metals.

Filtration Specifics

What Does Each MUV Module Filter?

MUV is made of three different filtration mediums. This allows you to choose the filter medium best suited for the severity of the water you will be filtering.

Filter Cut-Away

MUV - Activated Carbon Module

Activated Carbon - MUV 1 Module

Activated Carbon is a term for a manufactured carbon, either coal-based or coconut shell-based. The process is varied for each medium, but essentially the carbon is exposed to oxygen to create tiny pores in the carbon at a molecular level. It is these pores that absorb contaminants by chemical attraction.

Activated Carbon can remove:

  • Chemicals
  • Heavy metals
  • Discoloration of water
  • Negative taste
  • Filters up to 150 gallons

 

MUV - Hollow Fiber Module

Hollow Fiber - MUV 2 Module

Hollow Fiber membrane are tiny hollow tubes that look like straws. These fibers have a porous membrane that allows clean water into the fiber and prohibits contaminants from passing through the membrane. Hollow Fiber membrane filters water by size exclusion. Size exclusion works by having a pore size smaller than the size of the contaminants. Clean water is allowed to go through the membrane while the large contaminants cannot fit through the pores.

Hollow Fiber can remove:

  • Bacteria (E. Coli, Cholera, Typhoid, etc)
  • Protozoa (Cryptosporidium, Giardia, etc) 
  • Filters up to 100,000 gallons

 

MUV - Nanalum Module

Nanalum - MUV 3 Module

Nanalum works through absorption. Nanalum is manufactured with non-woven highly engineered water filter paper which is also impregnated with Granular Activated Carbon (GAC). The Nanalum module has a strong positive electrostatic charge when wet. Like a strong magnet, the positive electrostatic charge of the Nanalum attracts and traps organic contaminants.

Nanalum can remove:

  • Viruses (Hepatitis A, Hepatitis E, Poliovirus, Meningitis, etc)
  • Bacteria (E. Coli, Cholera, Typhoid, etc)
  • Protozoa (Cryptosporidium, Giardia, etc)
  • Heavy Metals
  • Chemicals
  • Negative taste
  • Filters up to 90 gallons

Water Fuels Me

MUV can be adapted to virtually any lifestyle or activity. Here are some of the ways that you can use MUV.

  • In a water bottle
  • In-line with a hydration bladder
  • Use as a straw and drink directly from the water source
  • As a gravity system
  • Along with a pump
  • Threaded onto a standard 28mm bottle top
  • There are dozens of different ways that you can customize and adapt MUV to your needs. You no longer need to buy a bunch of different filters for one specific use. MUV will adapt for you.

 

MUV will be available late-summer 2017. For information on how to pre-order your MUV package today, please email brandonm@renovowater.com
