Dirty water is put into the top container in which the candle is placed. Water will drip through the candle and the fast flow hose connected to the candle into the bottom bucket. The Tulip Table Top filter will purify the water of bacteria, parasites and turbidity. The water will be stored in the bottom container making sure that the water will not re-contaminate. The water can be used for drinking via the tap in the lower bucket.
Households: The Tulip Table Top filter is easily applicable for all members of a household. The water storage in the bottom container ensures that water is not re-contaminated.
School classes: Tulip Table Top is ideal to realize safe drinking water at schools as part of a WASH strategy. Being able to drink safe water during the day will increase the concentration and attendance of children. Also, children can be strong advocates of safe water and hygiene at home when they learn this at school.
To protect the filter element against premature clogging when using dirty water, the filter element is covered with a washable pre-filter. After some time, the flow rate will reduce because of clogging of the filter element. When this occurs a small layer of the ceramic material of the filter element has to be removed by scrubbing the filter. This can be done easily by using a scrub pad, which is included with the filter.
One of the core values of BWN is ‘affordable’. Therefore we will always strive to work in the most cost-effective way. Considering one filter can clean up to 7,000 liter, the price per liter is between $ 0.002 and $ 0.005, depending on the distribution situation.
