Stainless Steel Dragon Pot Only (without custom Steam Basket)! First line water sanitation.
Pasteurization or boiling provides high yield with the least resources in an emergency, period. Water treatment for fecal contamination upstream can be treated with simple pasteurization (Bacteria, Viruses, & Protozoa). For heavy metal, petrochemical, pesticide, or pharmaceutical contamination, please click under the tab “Water RX see our portable SolarBag Water RX option (ultra contaminated water). Filters, chemical tablets, or UV sterilizers do not offer protection that the SolarBag offers for ultra contaminated water.
Dragon Pot without custom Stainless Steel Steam Basket Insert (extra accessory). This is the most efficient pasteurization / boiling cook pot you will ever use for large volume water sanitation (only twigs required)! Here are common waterborne pathogens rendered inactive by pasteurization temperatures below:
- Bacteria (V. cholerae, E. coli, Shigella, Salmonella typhi), Rotavirus: Rapidly killed at 60C / 141F
- Hepatitis A virus: Rapidly killed at 65C / 149F
- Worms, Protozoa cysts (Giardia, Cryptosporidium, Entamoeba): Rapidly killed at 55C / 131F
- Five minutes at 65C / 149F would cause at least a 99.999 percent (5 log) reduction in viable waterborne microbes capable of causing disease.
