Berkey Light : The GO Anywhere - GLOW Anywhere - Water Purifier

Constructed of a shatter resistant, high impact strength non BPA copolyester; the system comes complete with two or four purification elements, a base and utilizes the latest technological advances. This system has a storage capacity of about 2.75 gallons and when in use it stands 26.5 in height with a diameter of 9. 

Not available in Iowa. 9" Imperial Super Sterasyl replacement element not available in California.

The Berkey Light™ system is designed for use during travel, outdoor activities and during unexpected emergencies. This powerful system purifies both treated water and untreated raw water from such sources as remote lakes, streams, stagnant ponds and water supplies in foreign countries, where regulations may be substandard at best. Perfect for outdoor activities and a must in hostile environments where electricity, water pressure or treated water may not be available.

Easy Setup and Simple Installation:
The Berkey Light™ system sets up in minutes. Simply screw in the Super Sterasyl ceramic filters and spigot, put the chambers and base together and you are ready to purify your water.

The shatter resistant and virtually unbreakable Berkey Light™ system is made of a high impact strength,non BPA copolyester.

The Berkey Light™ system does not leach foul tasting plasticizers into your water and will not retain foul tastes and odors from waterborne contaminants. As the system purifies water, it produces the delightful and relaxing sound of falling raindrops.

When used with the Berkey Light™ LED Base, these water droplets light up and glow and the resulting waves reflect soothing patterns of light onto the surrounding area. The lighting effects coupled with the melody of raindrops, combine to create a unique and relaxing atmosphere.

The revolutionary Berkey Light™ cleanable purification elements purify water by removing or reducing viruses, pathogenic bacteria, cysts and parasites entirely and by extracting harmful chemicals such as herbicides, pesticides, VOCs, organic solvents, radon 222 and trihalomethanes. They also reduce rust, silt, sediment and unhealthy minerals such as lead and mercury.

The base has an optional eight-lamp LED lighting system, available in practical white or beautiful cobalt blue, allowing for optimum use day or night. Incredibly, the Berkey Light™ LED lamps have an average life of over 11 years of continuous use and are so bright the white LED’s can be spotted for more than a mile in the dark, yet they require very little energy.

The adaptable Berkey Light™ LED lighting system is designed for long-term use even when electrical power is not available. The LED lamps can be powered by the 110 Volt AC adapter (included with LED base) when electricity is available, or by the internal rechargeable batteries (included with LED base). To use outside the US, a Step Down Voltage Converter may be required; please check your local voltage requirements first.

What’s more, the detachable base with the LED lights can be used as a stand-alone emergency flashlight.

The Sterasyl™ Ceramic Shell
The Sterasyl™ grade ceramic is designed to remove suspended solids and pathogenic bacteria (>99.99%).  The filter elements are produced using the latest ceramic techniques to provide a hollow porous ceramic, which is fired at a temperature in excess of 1,000º C.  They are designed to operate with water flow going from the outside to the inside of the element. The ceramic shell exhibits a strictly controlled pore structure, so as to provide efficient sub-micron filtration, a proven defense against hard-shelled parasites such as Cryptosporidium as well as pathogenic bacteria. The ceramic also removes other less harmful, but equally unpleasant particulate debris such as rust and dirt.

Composition of the Sterasyl™ ceramic contains silver.  This silver is a material designed to significantly inhibit mitosis or grow through. The result is that bacterial growth is inhibited from occurring within the Sterasyl™ ceramic element (which is possible with the other ceramic filter elements). Because of the silver, Sterasyl™ filter elements do not require sterilization after cleaning.

The Sterasyl™ filter, when used in in-line housings, is certified by the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) as meeting their Standard No 42 for materials.

The Super Sterasyl™ Water Filtration Element
The Sterasyl™ ceramic is the ceramic shell used for the Super Sterasyl™ filter element. Accordingly, this filter element will have, at a minimum, the filtration benefits of the Sterasyl™ ceramic.  Additionally, the bore of the ceramic shell is filled with granular activated carbon, which enables the filter to reduce chlorine and organic chemicals while improving the color, taste, and odor of the source water.  The re-cleanable Super Sterasyl™ filter elements remove suspended solids, parasites, cysts and pathogenic bacteria (>99.99%) and reduce organic chemicals, pesticides, herbicides, organic solvents, trihalomethanes, SOCs, VOCs and foul tastes and odors. The top of the Super Sterasyl™ element is closed with a unique ceramic dome.  This prevents the possibility of breeching(leakage), which can occur with filtration elements that are closed with a plastic cap.

Super Sterasyl™ Filters:

Remove Pathogenic Bacteria:
Cholera, Typhoid, Salmonella, Serratia, E.Coli, Fecal Coliform > 99.99% removal.

Remove Cysts (>99.999%):
Cryptosporidium Parvum and Giardia Lamblia - 100% removal (based on tests by Arizona State University).

Reduce Organic Chemicals:
Pesticides, herbicides, organic solvents, SOCs, VOCs, trihalomethanes.

Reduce Chlorine > 90%

Reduce Turbidity, Sediment and Particulate:

@ 0.9 micron                  > 99.99%
@ 0.5 – 0.8 micron          > 99.9%
@ 0.2 – 0.3 micron          > 98%
(based on tests by Spectrum Laboratories, Minneapolis, MN).

Maximum working pressure:           125   psi
Maximum working temperature:      100º F
Minimum working temperature:        40º  F

Bacterial mitosis and “grow-through”
Mitosis is the name for the usual method of bacterial cell division. This division is characterized by resolving the chromatin of the cell nucleus into a threadlike form that condenses into chromosomes, each of which separates longitudinally into two parts, one part of each chromosome being retained in each of the two new daughter cells. When conditions of growth (cell division) are right (proper environmental conditions, temperature, pressure, etc.) and sufficient nutrients, the “threadlike forms” can penetrate ordinary ceramic structure and create bacterial cells on the inside of ceramic elements.  The Sterasyl™ grade filter elements incorporate silver into the porous ceramic shell, which inhibits mitosis or  “grow-through”.
