Petros Water products are based on innovative and well proven technologies providing reliable decisions of the modern live problems. Some of these technologies come from famous Russian scientific centers and utilize world leading equipment well known in space and atomic researches. These nano-technologies also use unique Russian antioxidant minerals making drinking water not only cleaner but much healthier as well.

Track membrane is a product of high Nanotechnology.

Importance of clean water for humans can be hardly overestimated. Water dissolves in a huge number of chemicals, both organic and inorganic. Some of them may not be harmful for the body, but become destructive getting in contact with the others. Others are useful, but a combination of the chemicals can be harmful. Also water contains a lot of micro-organisms that can cause different kinds of diseases.  It is known that drinking water which substances concentration is higher than the maximum allowed, can cause irreversible changes in the work of the major systems of human body.

Thus, purification of drinking water from heavy metals and other contaminants is essential. But what and how can effectively bring drinking water to a safe condition?

More than 20 years ago at the enterprises of Nuclear Energy and Industry of Russia a new type of material was produced; this material was used for microfiltration (track membrane), which is ideal for cleaning liquids from trace contaminants (dust, particulate matter, bacteria, etc.).

Manufacturing of track membranes is conducted in a special nuclear reactor, where the flow of high-energy heavy ion irradiates thin polymer films made of polymers. Each ion along its trajectory affects polymer molecule, leaving a hidden track (hence is the name of the membrane, "track").

Track membrane is a 10 microns thick polymer film that contains hundreds millions of pores (holes) with 0.2-0.4 micron diameter each on its surface on each square centimeter (that is about 1000 times thinner than a human hair), which provides guaranteed quality of filtration.

Water passing through this unique membrane retains all the useful elements and leaves on the membrane the unsuitable ones. It is worth noting that the trace elements derived from water are many times more efficient and naturally interact with the body than any pills or dietary supplements.

Water purified in this way penetrates better through cell membranes and faster saturates the body with life-giving moisture. Bacterial contaminations of mechanical or chemical origin do not pass through this molecular sieve; they remain on the surface of the membrane or adsorbed on the enormous internal surface of the tracks.

This water is not distilled, a membrane conducts water with all the necessary microelements, retaining all the harmful impurities. No chemicals are used to purify water, water simply passes through the membrane (such as through a sieve), and that's enough to get not only clean water, but water with unique properties.

Water passing through the capillary filter (0.2-0,4 microns) becomes structured and acquires additional hydrogen bonds. It becomes bioactive. In addition, the membrane eliminates almost all the information about pollution was accumulated in water while it passed from the source to the consumer.

Unique Russian track membrane filters are now available in Geneva (Switzerland), commissioned by the International Federation of Red Cross (IFRC) to provide quality drinking water to the regions affected by various disasters and epidemics. Filters are also used by the UN International Emergency Forces during ecological disasters. UN Children's Fund UNICEF organized a supply of track membrane filters to children's clinics.

At the XI International European Quality Award Ceremony track membrane filter was awarded the first prize. The competition was attended by representatives from 112 countries all over the world. This filter also received a gold award at the exhibition Inpex-Innovations Congress in the USA.

Filter with a "track" membrane certified in Russia, was subjected to extensive research and tested at the Moscow Institute of Hygiene (Russia), Kiev Institute of Environmental Hygiene (Ukraine), Central Water Laboratory of Finland, specialized laboratory in Washington, USA.
