The purification system 10 of the present invention comprises a tubular member 12 having a throughbore 14. The tubular member 12 has a first end 16 and a second end 18. The first end 16 is inserted into the mouth while the second distal end 18 is inserted into a beverage 20 to be consumed. The tubular member 12 contains at least one filtering element, not shown, that is used to remove impurities from the beverage. The straw can be used anywhere suspicion of unfiltered drinking water exists, such as a park water fountain, restaurants, vacation trips or general travel.
Shown is a sectional view of the purification system 10. The tubular member 12 contains a granulated carbon filter element 26 that is used in combination to remove impurities from a predetermined beverage.
Shown is the filtering elements of the purification system 10. The tubular member 12 has a throughbore 14 wherein is fixedly positioned a plurality of filtering elements. One is a charcoal filtering element 22. One is a fibrous filtering element, in the preferred embodiment wool 24. Another is a biological filtering element 26. Each of the filtering elements performs a function that will result in the removal from a predetermined beverage certain impurities that can be harmful to human life.
Shown is a chart 28 of the impurities and undesireable properties that the charcoal filtering element 22 will help to reduce if not eliminate.
Shown is a chart 30 of the impurities and undesireable properties that the fibrous filtering element 24 will help to reduce if not eliminate. The filter 24 is designed to reduce the intake of sediment and suspended waste particles from a beverage.
Shown is a chart 32 of the impurities and undesirable properties that the biological filtering element 26 will help to reduce if not eliminate. The filtering element 26 is designed to reduce the intake of microbiological cysts from a beverage.
Shown is a chart 34 of the impurities and undesireable properties that the combination of the charcoal filtering element 22, fibrous filtering element 24, and biological filtering element 26 working in conjunction with each other will help to reduce if not eliminate. The purification system 10 is designed to reduce the intake of microbiological cysts, harmful contaminants and other impurities from a beverage.
Shown is a section view of the purification system 10 of the present invention having a fluid passing through. The tubular member 12 contains centrally disposed filtering elements that create an unfiltered beverage chamber 36 and a filtered beverage chamber 38 using a charcoal filter 22, a fibrous filter 24 and a biological filter 28 to produce an improved consumable beverage.
