Ahlstrom Group has partnered with Eureka Forbes Ltd. to launch a product to serve the growing needs for clean water in the Indian sub-continent.
Ahlstrom Group, headquartered in Helsinki, a manufacturer of nonwovens
and specialty papers, has partnered with Eureka Forbes Ltd., Mumbai, to launch a
product to serve the growing needs for clean water in the Indian sub-continent.
The device, designed and manufactured by Eureka Forbes, will be
sold under the brand name AquaSure. It incorporates Ahlstrom’s Disruptor filter
media, which removes a wide range of pathogens and submicron contaminants from water.
The AquaSure storage water purifier removes all three types of contaminants from
water - physical, chemical and microbiological - without the use of any chemicals
to provide microbiologically pure and safe drinkable water.
Designed for the challenging conditions in distribution, storage
and end-consumer use in developing markets like India, this technology eliminates
the need to add disinfecting chemicals that raise potential public health and safety
concerns. In addition, it offers consumers a simple, convenient and affordable way
to purify their water, consistent with entrenched consumer habits.
The technology combines high capacity and efficiency with the
filter’s low operating pressures.
