    Nephros army new RFI

    There is an army "Request for information" that is new (April 8th). It mentions Nephros directly. This must be good right? Are they trying to see how much to pay NEPH? Am I way off?

    I would paste the link but Yahoo then just deletes my post. Search "COTS Individual Water Purification System"

      The Marine Corps Warfighting Laboratory (MCWL) seeks to obtain market research information from sources capable of fully satisfying the requirement for a commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) individual water purifiers (IWP) capable of meeting the requirements of NSF Protocol P248. Nephros is one of the manufacturers that comply with the Army Public Health Command (USAPHC) for the NSF P248 Protocol. In-line Filters must fit inside the Hydration Carrier (NSN 8465-01-600-7962) and attach to the hydration pouch (NSN 8465-01-600-7887), the hydration bladder carrier that will be used during patrols. Operating temperatures required are 4o to 49oC water and -33o to 52oC ambient. The filter must continue to work within the stated operational conditions. Resistance to draw is an indicator of the filter's end of service life and that the United States Marines Corps (USMC) desires a mechanism to show filter integrity before this event to assure the user that the produced water is microbiologically safe. An indicator shows that the system is intact; device performance, not just life. Size requirements for the filter including all ancillary components for water purification must not exceed one (1) pound and must be compatible with the USMC Bladder System, NSN 8465-01-600-7956 which will be contained in the Hydration Pouch, NSN 8465-01-600-7887. The in-line filter configuration is sought for ease of use and compatibility with the current hydration system. Flow rate requirements are a minimum of 200 mL/minute for ease of drinkability.

      Sources capable of fully satisfying the above requirements should submit to the Government an informational document describing their technologies in relation to the guidelines listed above and a catalog price list of the unit.
