Copper Silver Ionization Solutions for the Most Difficult Environments

Copper Silver Ionization (CSI) technologies work by releasing positively charged copper and silver ions into the water distribution system. These bond with legionella bacteria preventing growth and saturate potential biofilm to create a hostile environment for growth. CSIDefender® Legionella water treatment solutions for Military Facilities are especially effective because they do not require on-site chemical storage or the energy needed to heat water up to 140°F or higher. CSIDefender® is built with quality materials and can be used in the demanding environments that are necessary for military deployment.

Deploy CSIDefender® Trusted Legionella Water Treatment Solutions for Military Facilities

CSIDefender® has been proven for almost 20 years of deployments in military facilities around the world. Manufactured in North America from quality materials and engineered to withstand the most challenging environments, CSIDefender® solutions provide the most powerful, reliable, and effective secondary potable water treatment system for your military facility potable water distribution network.

Benefits of CSIDefender®

1. Small Size, Weight, and Power Requirements

Like any military technology, size, weight and power (SWaP) requirements are always a major concern. CSIDefender® is compact and requires no on-site chemical storage, and provides significantly better performance than Thermal-eradication or chemical treatments. Based on your legionella risk assessment, a single unit is often powerful enough to treat the entire water distribution system, either at the Point-of-Entry (POE) or Domestic Hot Water (DHW) loop. Skid mounted military solutions are also available for easy deployment and fast installation.

2. Reliable Performance with Minimal Downtime

Other potable water treatment systems for legionella only provide short term disinfection, and must be reapplied every 3-6 weeks to consistently control bacteria growth. Alternatively, CSIDefender® provides fully automated, computer controlled and continuous protection by releasing a constant stream of copper and silver ions into the potable water. Boasting a 99.99% uptime and minimal monthly preventative maintenance, you can keep your resources focused on the field, and not on repeatedly treating the water for potential bacteria growth.

3. Easy to Install in New or Existing Facilities

Flexibility, adaptability, and agility are critical to the success of any mission. The tools you use to protect your troops from legionella bacteria should be just as flexible yet robust and reliable. CSIDefender® is easy to install in new or existing facilities, meaning you can quickly adjust to changing conditions without disrupting your operations. With no need for on-site chemical storage or other bulky infrastructure, CSI technologies are the perfect solution for your military facility potable water treatment requirements.

4. Keep Troops Healthy and Effective

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) considers even a small number of Legionella related cases to be an outbreak. Military facilities need to keep their personnel focused on the task at hand and effective in the field. Just as large vehicles and other equipment require preventative maintenance, fixed and mobile potable water distribution infrastructure should be protected against the growth of Legionella bacteria as part of regular operations.

Military facilities around the world have turned to CSIDefender® to combat the growing threat of legionella in their potable water distribution systems.
