Light weight easy to assemble portable emergency water filtration system. The British Berkefeld HFK gravity water filter provides you with safe drinking water. The HFK filter requires no electricty and no pressurized water mains to function. The system works on gravity, so no need for hand pumping either.
British Berkefeld gravity filters are recommended for field operations by many of the worlds major aid and emergency relief organisations, such as the Red Cross and Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF).
By default the British Berkefeld HFK water filter is fitted with ceramic Sterasyl candles by British Berkefeld. These filter elements reduce bacteria, cysts, sediment and sand and rust particles. Sterasyl candles can be cleaned with a scouring pad to be reused up untill 10.00 liters.

The British Berkefeld gravity filter is powerful, economical and perfect for use both at home and outdoors. The filter housing consists of two seperate chambers. The upper chamber is filled with contaminated water. The ceramic filter candles connect the upper and lower chamber. Gravity makes the water seep slowly through the filter candles. In the lower chamber, safe clean drinking water is collected.
