The compact Travel Berkey water filter system is the perfect system for small homes and apartments, for travel, as it fits in most suitcases, for outdoor activities or for unexpected emergencies.
All our Berkey systems come with one set of Black Berkey Elements and everything needed to be fully functional.
The upper chamber nests within the lower chamber for transport and stands only 12″ in height.
It is constructed of highly polished AISI 304 stainless steel and has a storage capacity of about 1.5 gallons.
The Travel Berkey can hold a maximum of 2 Black Berkey Elements in the upper chamber.
The system includes upper and lower stainless steel chambers, 2 Black Berkey Purification Elements, 2 wingnuts, 2 washers, 1 priming button, stainless steel lid, spigot, and a rubber gasket to protect the base.
When in use it has an 18″ height, a 7.5″ diameter and weighs 6.13 lbs empty.
For normal everyday use, this system easily serves 1-3 people.
The Travel Berkey, when configured with the two Black Berkey Purification Elements, has a maximum flow rate that can produce up to 2.75 gallons (10.4 liters) of purified water per hour. The flow rate is calculated with the upper chamber full to top. The flow rate decreases as the water level declines.
Up to two PF-2 Fluoride and Arsenic Reduction Filters may be installed in the lower chamber of this system if desired.
During an emergency situation the Travel Berkey can serve up to 33-66 people a day.
