Quick Overview

The Katadyn-06 Desalinator is SMALLEST, Simplest Hand-Operated
Survival/Emergency Desalinator Watermaker in the World!
It's considered a miracle of modern technology.

Katadyn-06 is made for liferaft and marine use to convert ocean sea water to safe drinking water. A survival must for all ocean boat emergency kits. Each unit has been made to tough U.S. Military and Coast Guard specs.

The smallest hand-operated emergency desalinator in the world

Drifting on the open sea used to create a major dilemma: water, water, everywhere, but not a drop fit to drink. With the Survivor-06, that's affordably been changed forever. Now you can produce fresh drinking water. It's a revolutionary way to finally quit worrying about fresh water for emergencies. Next to hypothermia, dehydration is a survivor's greatest danger. Never, ever, drink sea water! All that you will accomplish is to hasten your death.

The Survivor-06 (larger producing '35 model) are the only manually-operated, hand-held, reverse osmosis (RO) systems available. Safely converts ocean sea water to fresh drinking water. No batteries, generators, or alternators required or needed.

Survivor-06 hand pump combines reverse osmosis and energy recovery technology to make pure, drinkable water from salt, brackish or contaminated fresh water. Within a few minutes you can have fresh drinking water with virtually all sea salts and other contaminants removed. You literally transform salt water into pure fresh water by pumping it though a special membrane at very high pressure, leaving the salt on the other side of the membrane.

Nothing else comes close. This is the LOWEST PRICED compact desalinator we've come across. Don't be disappointed by the slow salt to fresh water flow rate, approximately 1 ounce of desalinated water per 2 minutes. Hey, when you're on a liferaft, you only have time to kill anyway!

Small, just 5" x 2.5" and weighs only 2.5 lbs. This is an excellent emergency watermaker for your "abandon ship" bag. Constructed of corrosion-resistant materials, the Survivor 06 withstands the worst conditions and still makes 2 pints of fresh water per hour. Just pump in seawater and get great tasting fresh water out the other end. Idea for 4 to 12 person liferafts.

Help assure your survival and be sure to pack aboard a Katadyn-06 Desalinator. We consider it cheap life insurance.

  • Compact and lightweight
  • Recommended for emergency liferafts and individual survival kits
