LIGHTWEIGHT WATER PURIFICATION SYSTEM - 3RD GENERATION
The TECWAR® LWPS 3.0 can produce 900+ GPH (3,406 LPH) simply by adding 5 more alike modules to the current LWPS-EPM configuration. The LWPS with EPM is the system currently used by the USMC and NAVY.
Because of the LWPS unique scalability and flow configurations, production can be scaled up or down based on field water requirements. The base LWPS is able to produce up to 300 GPH (1,135 LPH) and has been reconfigured to produce up to 600 GPH (2,271 LPH) with EPM. The LWPS 3.0 is the final, and 3rd generation LWPS which has been scaled up to produce 900 + GPH (3,406 LPH).
All modules are currently provisioned and are taught at the MCES.
The TECWAR® LWPS 3.0 can be operated by diesel motors (current system), or be powered with the electrical motor E-LWPS version.
KEY SPECIFICATIONS AND FEATURES:
900+ GPH (3,406 LPH) flow rate on fresh water sources. 450+ GPH (1,703 LPH) flow rate on salt water sources
Footprint can be expanded up to 330 feet (100.6 m) from source to system with a maximum 25 feet (7.6 m) of lift
Lightweight and modular allows 2-person portability and provides adaptive layout for changing expeditionary environments.
Open-frame design and quick-release connections allow for ease of maintenance and element replacement
EXTENDED CAPABILITY MODULES:
OCEAN INTAKE STRUCTURE SYSTEM – used on shorelines where there is a rise and fall of the tides
COLD WEATHER KIT – allows the LWPS to operate below 32 degrees Fahrenheit (0 degrees Celsius)
NUCLEAR, BIOLOGICAL AND CHEMICAL (NBC) WATER TREATMENT – decontaminates product
water which contains NBC agents
4. NBC SURVIVABILITY CHEMICAL AVOIDANCE COVER (CAC) – protects the LWPS modules during
a nuclear, biological or chemical attack
