The Crown Berkey is our largest purifier model and is ideal for use with very large sized groups (40-150 people) at home, churches, hospitals, and orphanages.
The Crown Berkey water filter system was created out of necessity. Prior to the events that unfolded on September 11, 2001, Berkey concentrated on the filtering needs of mostly families and groups of people desiring a means of producing purified drinking water. These times seemed somehow more secure and stable. People were confident in the ability of our most sacred municipalities to meet our basic needs like drinking water. Post 9/11, the mood of the entire world changed; these changes dictated a need for a different water filter than Berkey had provided in the past.
The need for a water purification system capable of taking raw, untreated water from outside sources and producing purified, good tasting drinking water for masses of people left without safe municipal supplies became a common request. The customer looking to shop for a filter that met this demand was the reason we developed the Crown Berkey water filter system.
We built on the three known factors we discovered while developing the Imperial Berkey. First, the upper container height was increased for the Crown. This added height produced the increased pressure that was needed to push higher volumes of water through the Black Berkey purification elements. Secondly, the diameter of the Crown Berkey water filter was increased in order to increase the number of filters to eight. This larger number of filters produced a 33% increase in filtering surface area over the Imperial.
Lastly, we increased the height and diameter of the lower water storage container. This new container held a full six gallons of purified drinking water, making it large enough to sustain water levels during peak usage demands. We discovered during earlier tests that drinking water needs came in waves and a larger storage container was needed to prevent the Crown Berkey water filter from running dry during these times. World events since 9/11 have reaffirmed the need for a filter like the Crown Berkey. Events like Hurricane Katrina – which left thousands without treated drinking water – and the tsunami disaster in Japan saw the great suffering that in some cases was alleviated because of water filtering systems provided by Berkey. Now, customers looking to purchase a single water filtering device capable of supplying the demands of large groups of up to 150 people for a prolonged period of time need to look no further. Purchase Crown Berkey water filter systems and rest assured that if disaster strikes, you will still have major problems, but one of those problems will not be the availability of good drinking water.
The Crown Berkey water filter system is our largest model and was designed to provide for large groups like those found in hospitals, churches, and orphanages. The Crown comes with everything you will need to start producing purified drinking water minutes after assembly. It takes only 10-15 minutes to assemble and requires no special knowledge or tools.
This powerful water filter purifies both treated water and untreated raw water from such sources as remote lakes, streams, stagnant ponds and water supplies in foreign countries, where regulations may be substandard at best. Perfect for outdoor activities and a must in hostile environments where electricity, water pressure or treated water may not be available.
The Crown Berkey Water Filter removes viruses, pathogenic bacteria, cysts, and parasites and extracts harmful chemicals such as herbicides, pesticides, VOCs, organic solvents, radon 222 and trihalomethanes. It also reduces rust, silt, sediment, foul taste and odors and unhealthy minerals such as lead and mercury. This system is so powerful it can remove red food coloring from water without removing the beneficial minerals your body needs. Virtually no other system can duplicate this performance.
Constructed of highly polished 304 stainless steel, the system comes complete with two purification elements and utilizes the latest technological advances. This system has a storage capacity of about 6 gallons (22.7 liters) and when in use it stands 30” in height with a diameter of 11”. The upper chamber nests within the lower chamber for transport and stands only 20” in height.
Configured with two Black Berkey™ Purification Elements the water filter will purify up to 6.5 Gallons (24.6 liters) per hour*. This water filter can be expanded to use eight purification elements and is capable of purifying up to 26 Gallons (98.4 liters) per hour*.
* Flow rate calculated with upper chamber full to the top. Flow rate decreases as water level declines.
The powerful Black Berkey™ purification elements also remove or reduce viruses, pathogenic bacteria, cysts, parasites, harmful or unwanted chemicals such as herbicides and pesticides, VOCs, detergents, organic solvents, trihalomethanes, cloudiness, silt, sediment, heavy metals, foul tastes, and odors, yet they leave in the healthful and beneficial minerals that your body needs.
