Parker Filtration Technology Supplies Clean Water To Typhoon Haiyan Survivors

CLEVELAND, Feb. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Parker Hannifin Corporation (NYSE: PH), the global leader in motion and control technologies, has partnered with the Philippines Red Cross to deploy and commission a disaster recovery reverse osmosis water filtration system. The system was successfully installed January 6, 2014 in one of the worst hit areas near Tacloban City in Palo, Leyte Province. Parker representatives provided on-site training to local Water, Sanitation & Hygiene (WASH-WATSAN) Red Cross staff who will maintain the system to accommodate ongoing water needs.

Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) made land fall on November 8, 2013 as a category five "super typhoon" and displaced 4.1 million people with a death toll surpassing 6,000 people. Basic service restoration is still in progress with many outlying areas still without power and water.

The Parker system will serve as a primary source of water production for the Leyte Province, providing up to 20,000 gallons of safe, potable water per day from a fresh water canal. The water will be distributed regionally with water tanker trucks and approximately 40 strategically located water distribution bladders supplied by the Red Cross.

"We are pleased to contribute to the relief efforts by providing clean, potable water to the people of the Philippines who have been devastated by the recent typhoon," commented Peter Popoff, Parker's Filtration Group President. "Parker's disaster recovery, reverse osmosis watermakers hold great promise in delivering consistently clean water from a fully contained system that is easy to transport, install and maintain, and can use nearly any water source to produce temporary or emergency potable water wherever it is needed."

Parker's proven filtration and instrumentation technologies are able to support the entire process of collecting, purifying and testing water from local sources to assist relief efforts. The company also supplies customizable watermakers to serve additional markets including commercial marine, offshore oil and gas, military applications and land-based operations.
