Enabling tough mobile water purification systems for defense and mobile water treatment applications.
Wananchi UK manufactures tough, reliable, high-quality mobile water purification systems designed to withstand the harshest of conditions to produce pure, drinking water direct from the source.
It is a product design company based in Fareham, UK and was established in 2010 as an R&D company with the core purpose of developing and bringing to market mobile water purification systems. Its primary market is defense and first-response water treatment.
Wananchi engineers and builds tough, reliable, high-quality mobile water purification systems designed to withstand the harshest of conditions to produce drinking water directly from any source using its own self-priming pump and 12V power pack. Its portable water purification systems must withstand the harshest of environments and intensive handling.
For one of its systems, Wananchi required a UV disinfection system that was light and had an extremely small footprint to enable the system to be man-portable and fit easily into the back of a 4 X 4 vehicle. Its Séon UV is equipped with proven cartridge filtration along with the cutting-edge AquiSense PearlAqua Micro™. A UV-C LED solution was chosen due to its lightweight, compact footprint, low power consumption, and durable design.
Defense and first response teams have historically avoided using conventional UV disinfection units due to their demanding requirements. Fragile quartz lamp and sleeves are not robust enough to withstand harsh conditions and overall space and weight requirements were often exceeded for traditional UV sources and their electronic drivers. These teams now have a proven technology to secure their drinking water in these difficult and remote environments.
