Kickstarter Campaign Launched for Titanium Water Filter

Go Walkabout is looking to raise funds via Kickstarter to introduce their newly developed Titanium personal water filters, designed for outdoor adventures and emergency preparedness

The outdoors lifestyle is pretty demanding on gear. The freezing cold nights, hot days, packing, unpacking and carrying gear around all cause a lot of wear and tear. The Australian Walkabout Ti filters have been developed and designed with this in mind and,  with a successful Kickstarter campaign, they  will be introduced as the  world’s first Titanium  personal water filter.

According to Go Walkabout Engineering Manager Matt Munoz, "We have made and tested filters using a number of different metals. We know that weight, size and ruggedness are always considerations when looking at outdoor gear, so we decided to use Titanium for the Walkabout line of personal water filters. Titanium has the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any metal. It is also the most hypoallergenic material known and doesn’t add any flavor to the water you drink.”

"A beautiful Titanium filter guaranteed for life"

A Titanium filtration membrane forms the core of Walkabout Ti filters.  Sealed inside a tough Titanium casing, this membrane can be safely frozen or boiled. The filtration process involves pre-filtration and filtration stages to hold back harmful bacteria and particles. On the larger filter an activated carbon filtration stage removes chlorine, heavy metals and odors. The flexible and lightweight filtration system can be used in a variety of ways such as a squeeze filter, gravity filter, pumped filter, filter straw, or as an inline filter.

Since the  filters are  Titanium  inside  and  out,  the  only real  weak  point  is the  O- ring seal.  With this in mind, Go Walkabout has designed in an integrity indicator. This means that if a seal starts leaking, water drips out of the filter instead of through to the clean side.

While Go Walkabout’s current equipment has successfully produced prototypes, the manufacturing process in uneconomical, making Walkabout Ti filters too expensive to be a good value in the outdoor gear market. Go Walkabout has determined that minimal additional tooling and equipment will result in the production of readily  affordable filter. Adequate funding through their Kickstarter campaign will allow Go Walkabout to purchase the needed material and tools.

The funding target for this campaign is $48,000, and it will close on November 18th, 2014. The filters are being offered in their campaign below the expected retail price.
