Minneapolis, Minn. (August 24, 2017) — Katadyn is proud to launch the new BeFree 3.0L Filtration System, the largest addition to its award-winning BeFree water filtration system line. The new BeFree 3.0L holds the most fluid ounces while providing the same rapid flow rate (read: 2-liters per minute) and unique shake to clean filter technology of its predecessors, the BeFree 0.6L and 1.0L.
“We are pleased to offer another new product to our award-winning line up of Katadyn BeFree water filters,” said Shawn Hostetter, president of Katadyn North America. “Consumers have asked for larger sizes and different applications of our new shake to clean filter technology found in the original BeFree 0.6L filter. The extremely fast flow rate, compactness and all around user friendliness of the BeFree filter has reinvigorated the water treatment category.”
The Katadyn BeFree product line has already won numerous awards, including ISPO Gold, Backpacker Editor’s Choice Award, Runner’s World Gear of the Year and OutDoor Gold. The BeFree 3.0L Filtration System is the latest innovation, providing an ultra-durable HydraPak 3.0L reservoir with an integrated Bail and Carry Handle for convenient hanging and transport. All sizes of the BeFree include a two-year ‘No Leak Guarantee.’
Katadyn’s trusted filter technology safely removes up to 99.9999% of bacteria and 99.9% of protozoa to EPA standards using the new 0.1-micron EZ-Clean hollow-fiber filter. The BeFree™ filter protects users from harmful organisms such as Cryptosporidium, Giardia, E-Coli and Salmonella.
The BeFree’s unique EZ-Clean Filter Membrane eliminates the need of backflushing, allowing users to simply shake (or swish) to easily clean the filter anytime, anywhere. With its Free Flowing Channel technology, the 0.1-micron microfilter provides a flow rate of 2-liters per minute.
