Press Release

The US Government has committed to purchase 8,000 MSR MIOX water purifiers for delivery before the end of the year. MIOX Corporation and Cascade Designs Inc. (CDI) have signed a license agreement to manufacture and distribute the MSR MIOX Purifier to the military and consumer markets. The handheld personal-use water treatment devices will be available for purchase in Fall of 2003 and will be sold through retailers like REI, Campmor, and MEC (in Canada). Prototypes of the MSR MIOX Purifier were field tested in 2002 by the U.S. military forces in Afghanistan and other locations.

The MSR MIOX Purifier occupies only 14% of the space required by a typical portable water treatment filter and is Ľ the weight. The sleek and compact design is an attractive feature for backpackers or travelers trying to minimize packing volume and weight. The disinfectant solution does not leave an aftertaste at standard doses, unlike chlorine or iodine tablets. Each dose will treat anywhere from 1/2 liter up to a gallon of water.

The device operates by converting a brine solution to a mixed-oxidant solution via electrolysis. Each Purifier utilizes two 3V lithium camera batteries, a salt pellet and a tiny electrolytic cell. The Purifier will treat approximately 50 liters of water on one salt pellet and 200 liters of water on one set of batteries.

The Purifier can be used over and over, making water treatment an inexpensive procedure after the initial purchase. An important feature of using simple salt as the disinfectant source is that salt has an infinite shelf life, so the Purifier will still function even if stored without use for a long period of time. The disinfectant will inactivate a number of common pathogens, including E. coli, Giardia, and Cryptosporidium, as well as chemical and biological warfare agents. The Purifier has passed the EPA Purifier Protocol, achieving more than 10 times the level of disinfection than required for normal waters.

Other well-known CDI products include Therm-A-Rest™ mattresses, SweetWater™ filters, Platypus™ hydration bags, and PackTowl™ adsorptive towels. CDI also owns Mountain Safety Research (MSR), a respected maker of high tech outdoor goods, including tents, stoves, cookware, water filters, snowshoes, and trekking poles. The MIOX Purifier will be in the MSR family of products.
