Outline

We requested the Japanese Environmental Investigation Center, an institute specializing in nuclear power, to collect raw water near Fukushima, Japan and conduct research. Accordingly, it found that our reverse osmotic (RO) membrane filters eliminated 99.9 percent of radioactive materials such as uranium and radium. Also, it was recognized first among Korean products, in that our filters removed over 95 percent of non-radioactive cesium and iodine. This product which is for domestic use also meets our users hygienic needs by applying a self-sterilization system.

Evaluation

The recent Tohoku Earthquake and nuclear accident has brought home to us how our precious drinking water can be exposed to danger from invisible radioactive particles. This product, primarily designed as a water purifier for domestic and retail use, incorporates a high-performance filter that can remove 95% of cesium, iodine, and other radioactive elements. The design elegantly combines a simple main unit that projects a sense of security with an LED display that expresses the product's high technical capacity.
