Product description Brand name and product description

The Shield 1000 is a water purification system, which uses a photocatalytic nanotech fiber mesh to destroy contaminants in water. A photochemical reaction that occurs when the mesh is activated by UV energy and, when coupled with intense UV affect on contaminants, results in the five processes that purify the water. The Shield aims to improve humanitarian response by enabling access to safe drinking water more efficiently, while reducing water-borne diseases.
