Blemished Berkey® Systems: Same Great Performance, Special Price!
Blemished systems enable you to enjoy economic savings while being assured that the performance of your Berkey® system has by no means been compromised. Cosmetically blemished Berkey® systems come with the same warrantied Black Berkey® Purification Elements that have made Berkey® by NMCL the leader in the industry. Blemished Berkey® systems are identified by a distinctive “B” stamped on the upper and lower stainless steel chambers, which indicates that the chambers ARE NOT warrantied against cosmetic defects. However, the Black Berkey® Purification Elements carry the standard 2-year pro-rated limited warranty, which provides you with the same performance and longevity that you would experience with any of our non-blemished Berkey® systems.
The compact Travel Berkey® is the perfect water system for traveling and camping, and it fits comfortably in most carry-on or larger suitcases. Constructed of highly polished AISI 304 stainless steel, it has a storage capacity of about 1.5 gallons. The upper chamber nests within the lower chamber for transport (12″ high).
System includes upper and lower stainless steel chambers with two full-size Black Berkey® Purification Elements for installation in upper chamber. Up to two Berkey PF-2™ Fluoride and Arsenic Reduction Elements (optional) may be installed in the lower chamber. To use, simply pour untreated water into the system’s top chamber, and the water is purified as gravity pulls it through the Black Berkey® Purification Elements into the bottom chamber where it is easily dispensed through a handy spigot.
Black Berkey® Purification Elements are classified as water purifiers because they reduce or remove up to 99.9999999% of pathogenic bacteria and up to 99.999% of viruses. They are equipped to also remove or dramatically reduce toxic chemicals, heavy metals, volatile organic compounds, trihalomethanes, detergents, pesticides, herbicides, chlorides, pharmaceuticals, petroleum-based products, unpleasant tastes, odors, silt, sediment and chlorine. see full list of contaminants removed
