Low cost, high quality version of Doultons invention
The first water filter candle was invented by Doulton in 1827. Nazava improved this proven technology by choosing the highest quality ceramic with very low pore size and high pore density. Nazava uses a secret procedure to impregnate the filters with nano silver particles leading to improved bacteria removal. The unique freshness of the Nazava water is caused by the high quality of the activated carbon. We use ultra high grade activated carbon made from coconut husks in Indonesia by a Japanese company.
History of ceramic water filter candles
from wikipedia :”
Henry Doulton invented the modern form of ceramic candle sanitary water filter in 1827. In 1835, Queen Victoria commissioned him to produce such a device for her personal use. By 1846, Doulton ceramics was widely recognized as a premier manufacturer of an effective prevention device for treating infective water. In 1887, Doulton was knighted, in part for his work with water filters. Louis Pasteur‘s research concerning bacteria also had provided a demonstrable reason for the filters’ effect. Doulton’s original organization for water filters remains in existence, although it has been sold and renamed several times. “Doulton” is currently (2013) a registered trademark of Fairey Ceramics.
