Water treatment (drinking water): Compact-Sized Desalination Device

Waqua Inc.

Desalination Device
Designed for Portability


aqua Inc. (formerly Y's Global Vision Inc.) was created a compact-sized desalination device called MYZ Series™ that is lightweight, small and portable for use on construction sites and cramped remote areas. It’s also ideal for emergencies where clean drinking water is imperative. Waqua Inc. specializes in manufacturing and selling water purification machines.

The company’s latest offering is the MYZ Series - portable desalination machines that can purify seawater and other contaminants such as Metal, Arsenic, and harmful chemicals and remove 99.99% of viruses and bacteria.

This desalination machine is in accordance with Japan's Ministry of Health, Labour, and Welfare tests for safe drinking water. There are many different sizes, depending on the needs of the user. The typical installation type is the E-60 (capable of producing 60 litres of safe and good-tasting fresh water per hour), with larger versions available at 250 litres.

Major Features and Advantages

I. Compact and lightweight

The MYZ Series E-60 is small and compact, allowing it to fit in various locations, such as tight quarters in a disaster or construction site. It is also lightweight, weighing just 58 kg (128lbs). This means it is simple to travel with and can easily be loaded onto small trucks to remote islands, deep mountains, small boats, and others.

II. Emergency-ready

Due to its small size and lightweight, the desalination machine can be utilized quickly in an emergency. It can even be used on boats at sea that have encountered a dire problem with safe drinking water.

III. Cost efficient

This equipment can be purchased for one-third the price of similar products in Japan. With each litre costing only five cents, this option represents the most cost-efficient solution for consumers. Our company believes no other product can equal our devices at the same level of service and performance.

IV. Taste

The MYZ Series water purifiers make safer water for those who need it and produce water that tastes great. This machine can remove salt as much as 0.0%, making it possible to purify other sources such as rivers, swimming pools, rainwater, ponds, etc.

V. Customization

Waqua Inc.’s MYZ Series has been exported to Vietnam, Laos, Thailand, the Philippines, Papua New Guinea, Sri Lanka, Indonesia and South Africa. With MYZ desalination machines, each one can be configured according to our customer’s specifications.
