The Hydropac™ Manifold Unit provides clean, reliable drinking water for research animals with a multi-barrier approach that includes filtering facility water and treating water with chemical additives. The Manifold Unit with Water Treatment Proportioner and Ultra Filtration Systems permits precise injection of chemical additives and provides ultra-filtration to meet the most demanding research protocols. Operating with water flowing through the Manifold Unit, the Water Treatment Proportioner provides a precise, reliable, non-electric method for in-line injection of any liquid, such as diluted chlorine or other chemical additives. A 10-micron pre-filter conditions facility water as it flows into the unit. Three additional filters step down from 1.2 microns, to 0.2 microns, and finally to a 0.1 sub-micron ultra filter, which removes virtually all microbes from facility water.
