GB DE FRA NL DK SWE NOR FIN IT ESP PORModel 8013433 Survivor 35EnglishThank you for purchasing the Katadyn Survivor 35 desalinator It was designed and built torigorous specifications by Katadyn Products Inc to provide fresh water in emergency situations Please before operating the Survivor take the short time needed to read this ManualThis small investment of time will help assure many years of trouble free operation Be sureto fill in the enclosed warranty card and return it to us as soon as possible This is requiredto fulfill the terms of your warranty Important Precautions Avoid sucking in oil gasoline or other petroleum based products they will quickly destroy the membrane Avoid drawing water from a confined source As the salt concentration increases the unit will become harder to pump Do not adjust the relief valve This valve is preset in the factory Adjusting this valve can dam age the pump and void your warranty It is normal to detect a slight taste in the fresh water However do not drink water with a strong salt flavor The strainer may eventually clog and need rinsing If the unit is hard to pump either the strain er is clogged or the water is unusually cold or salty During prolonged emergency use pump the unit for at least 10 minutes each day to keep sea water from stagnating inside the unit If the unit will not be used again for several days remove any accessible seawater from it To do so remove the intake strainer and hose from the feed water Turn the unit upside down and pump the handle up and down normally until water stops coming out After the unit has been used flush the membrane with biocide before storing it again This will prevent the growth of bacteria inside the unit Refer to Storage below If the feedwater has an high bacteria content use biocide daily Store the biocide in a dry ventilated area IMPORTANT For your safety we require that an inspection be completed once a year Our regional service centers are trained to perform all necessary quality checks or you can return the unit to Katadyn for The Survivor 35 is designed for use in emergency it has been used once under such conditions consult your dealer todetermine if any service is required Product Survivor 35 is a simple hand operated watermaker able to produce over 30 gallons105 liters of potable water per day from seawaterA semipermeable membrane inside the unit acts as a molecular filter When seawater is pressurized to 800 psi 55 bar by pumping the handle and forced against the membrane only the watermolecules can pass through salt molecules are unable to pass and flow out of the system GBTechnology Reverse OsmosisSalt rejection 984 on average 968 minimum The desalination degree effect depends on different influence factors such as pressure throughput and the quality of waterPermeate Flow 45 lh 15 12 US galhrWeight 32 kg 7 lbsDimensions 14 x 56 x 9 cm 55 x 22 x 35Guarantee 1 yearMaterial Pump Stainless Steel plastic Membrane approved by the US FDA Food and Drug Administration Operating Instructions1 Uncoil hoses Drop the hoses and attached strainer into the seawater Be sure strainer is fully submerged2 Place desalinator across your lap Place one hand on handle grip and the other on the mem brane housing as shown Figure 1 13 Pump handle up and down as far as it will go in each direction at a comfortable rate of speed about 2 seconds per updown stroke After you pump for 1 2 minutes the pressure indicat ing rod will extend itself revealing an orange band Continue pumping so the orange band remains visible If water sprays from the indicator pump slower If orange band is not visible pump faster4 Once water drips from the freshwater hose pump at least 60 strokes two minutes while dump ing the water overboard This will clear the system of biocide solution and salt that passes through the membrane when not in use Then insert the freshwater hose into a storage container or directly into your mouth IMPORTANT At initial start up of a new unit or of an unit that has been inhibited filled with biocide storage solution to inhibit biological growth dump the freshwater output for at least 60 strokes to clear the biocide solution from the system5 Continue pumping until you get the desired amount of waterTo get more water if you stop pumping temporarily repeat the above procedureThe Survivor 35 is designed to operate under the following seawater conditions Water Temperature 2 to 45 C 36 to 113F Salinity 35000 ppm TDS average Handle Grip Collapsible Freshwater Container Pressure Indicating rod Submerged Intake Strainer Figure 1 1 Membrane CleaningThe membrane does not have to be cleaned regularly However even in normal operation it caneventually become dirty or fouled with biological growth and particles which are small enough topass through the strainerThis build up on the surface of the membrane can cause the freshwater flow rate to be low or theoperating pressure to be high The most likely symptom will be discharge of seawater from therelief valve on the pump body because of higher than normal operating pressure GBUnder the above circumstances the membrane should be cleaned as described below UseKatadyns Membrane Cleaning Kit article number 8013369 which consists of a special membrane cleaning housing and cleaning agentsTwo types of cleaner are provided with the kit alkaline and acid The alkaline cleaner is used toremove biological fouling oil or dirt the acid cleaner is used to remove mineral scaling Cleaningwith just the alkaline cleaner will usually restore the membranes performance However if low output or higher than normal pressure continues the acid cleaner should also be usedThe procedure is the same for both cleaners Use the alkaline cleaner first following the procedurebelow If the acid cleaner is also required flush the system and repeat the procedure with it Membrane Cleaning Housing Reject brine line is bypassed Freshwater output line is bypassed Discard discharge water for 30 sec then insert hose into Membrane cleaning solution pail Cleaning Solution as shown in large pail Figure 1 2 Cleaning Procedure1 Mix four spoonfuls 40 g of the cleaning agent with one gallon approximate 4 liters of clean freshwater in a clean pail The water should be warm but not hot maximum of 122 F 50 C Mix until the cleaner is completely dissolved2 Grasp the membrane housing with both hands and turn until it can be removed In its place install the special membrane cleaning housing provided with the kit Screw the housing all the way on by hand but dont overtighten Place the suction strainer into the pail of warm water3 Pump the handle Discard the water coming from the discharge hose on the end of the clean ing housing for about 30 seconds then place the return hose into the cleaning solution con tainer Continue pumping the unit while recirculating for about 15 minutes4 Stop pumping and allow the membrane to soak for at least an hour For severe fouling an extended soak period of 10 to 15 hours may be desirable5 After soaking pump the handle again Dump the first few pulses of solution that come immedi ately from the discharge hose When the stream becomes cleaner place the hose back into the pail of cleaning solution and recirculate for another 30 to 60 minutes6 After cleaning flush by pumping warm freshwater through the system insert the alternate intake hose into a pail of fresh water and run the discharge water from the cleaning housing to a drain If fresh water is not available you may use seawater if it is above 68 F 20 C7 Remove the cleaning housing and reinstall the normal membrane housingIf the unit wont be used for at least 7 days after cleaning follow the inhibiting instructions under Storage Replacing the membrane elementIf the membrane element is damaged or can not be cleaned anymore please replace the elementusing the Katadyn Membrane Replacement Kit article number 8012793 and follow the instructions below1 Grasp the membrane housing with both hands and turn until it can be removed2 Remove the membrane element with a pulling and twisting motion3 Clean the membrane housing with a warm mild detergent rinse with clean water wipe dry with a lint free cloth4 Lubricate the seals on the new element with a small amount of silicone lubricant5 Insert the element into the pump front then push the reject tube assembly all the way into the element6 Slide the housing over the element Screw it all the way into the pump collar by hand but do not overtightenBe sure there is no gap between the pump collar and the thread stop on the membrane housing Key Components GB Figure 1 31 Capscrews 4 pcs 8013018 8 Handle 80129942 Hose and strainer assembled 9 Lanyard not shown3 Pump Back4 Pump Front Kits not

is shipped from the factory with a biocide solution inside to prevent the growthof bacteria After the unit has been operated and before it is stored again it should be flushed withbiocide as outlined belowIMPORTANT Never let the membrane dry out Be sure to follow these storage instructions1 Turn the unit upside down with the intake strainer out of the water2 Fill a suitable container with about a quart approximate 1 liter of clean water Freshwater is preferable but clean seawater can be used if freshwater is not available3 Mix one spoonful 10 grams of the biocide with water until dissolved4 Place the intake strainer into the biocide solution and pump until water starts flowing out of the reject hose indicating that the membrane housing is filled Stop pumping immediately after water begins to flow from the reject hose5 If seawater was used to mix the biocide solution repeat the above procedure with freshwater as soon as it is available6 Rinse any biocide solution off the outside of the unit Allow the unit to dry completely before sto ringIMPORTANT For your safety we require that the above procedure be completed once a yearstorage temperature 25C77F Please be aware to use only
