A simple turn engages a ceramic pre-filter for long life in dirty water or a pleated glass fiber filter in normal conditions. Produces up to two quarts per minute in the faster flow mode and one quart per minute in longer life mode. Replaceable carbon core keeps water tasting fresh; reduces chemicals, odors, and toxins throughout the life of the cartridge. Dual piston technology provides maximum output with minimum effort. Adapter base attaches directly to water bottles or an output hose can be used to fill hydration systems or larger containers.
A member of Katadyn's Backcountry Series of water filters, the Vario Multi Flow Water Microfilter is the first water filter that is adjustable for different conditions. It combines two leading technologies into one high-performance pump: ceramic for a longer life and pleated glass fiber for easy operation. The Vario offers a high output and also contains a replaceable carbon core to keep the water tasting fresh.
Description of Katadyn Vario Microfilter
The intelligent microfilter
The Vario combines individual efficiency with the simplest possible handling. The technology it uses consists of three filter levels: a high-performance glass fibre filter, a ceramic pre-filter that can be adjusted individually according to the cloudiness of the water, and active charcoal for eliminating odours. Anyone who needs up to two litres of drinking water per minute can use the glass fibre and active charcoal filter. If the water is extremely cloudy, the ceramic pre-filter can be fitted in a moment in order to extend the service life of the glass fibre filter. The Vario is compatible with standard outdoor bottles and hydration bladders.
