A New Nanotechnology Catalyst, a New Era for Puralytics

We are thrilled to see the performance of the new catalyst. Even on a cloudy day here in Oregon, we can see enhanced and quicker performance. Upgrading the catalyst has already and will continue to have a significant effect on product development

A novel period starts for Puralytics, a water purification company with headquarters in Oregon. Puralytics’ products use a nanotechnology catalyst-coated mesh as the key component to purify water through photocatalytic processes. The catalyst is activated by sunlight or by LEDS to remove a broad range of contaminants.

Several years of research and development by Puralytics’ engineers and scientists have delivered a new, proprietary material. This new nanotechnology material has been engineered and manufactured in-house and lowers catalyst costs by 60% or more while increasing performance by 50% or more in most applications. It is also more durable and easy to adapt to different systems and product applications for use in product and system development.

“We are thrilled to see the performance of the new catalyst. Even on a cloudy day here in Oregon, we can see enhanced and quicker performance. Upgrading the catalyst has already and will continue to have a significant effect on product development,” said Amy Bortvedt, scientist at Puralytics.

Presently, Puralytics has two primary lines of products: the SolarBag and the Shield. Both products utilize this material as the key element to purify water. The SolarBag, a portable water purifier activated by sunlight, has been used by outdoor enthusiasts, nonprofit organizations, mission teams and emergency response teams. The second line of products, a purification unit activated by LEDs and capable of treating thousands of liters per day, has been deployed…
