BERKEFELD® M Range - Systems

Mobile Drinking Water Systems for Civil Aid & Military

The BERKEFELD® M Range comprises highly mobile drinking water purification systems designed for military operations, humanitarian aid and technical relief. The extremely robust and compact plants are able to purify water from almost any water source. They supply safe drinking water according to WHO or even German drinking water regulation (TVO) standards in capacities up to 15 m3/h. Customers can choose between fully automated systems with HMI and easy to use basic plants.

Mobile drinking water purification

BERKEFELD® M Range systems combine advanced filtration steps such as 

  • pre-treatment 
  • inline flocculation
  • pre-filtration 
  • ceramic ultrafiltration
  • reverse osmosis 
  • UV system
  • disinfection system

in a highly flexible way providing best value and mission benefit for almost any challenge. 

BERKEFELD® M range systems are installed on a frame. They may be used on their own and can be fitted onto a trailer or installed into an ISO container together with a generator. 

BERKEFELD® M Range systems can be transported as an external load under a helicopter. Certification approval for transportation in and under military helicopters and aircrafts is in progress.
