This multitalented stove with just one jet for pressurized gas, white gas, kerosene, diesel and jet fuel offers maximum flexibility with the highest performance when you’re on tour. The stove’s operation is very simple since you don’t have to change the fuel jet.

For simple refilling of the Optimus Burny lighter, Optimus now offers the compatible refill adaptor. Simply screw the refill adapter onto the valve of the gas cartridge, turn over the cartridge, and press the nozzle into the refill valve 2 - 4 times in short intervals of 3 seconds.

Aquafides the IFAT Show in Munich and Shanghai

Aquafides at the IFAT Show in Munich

Aquafides had a booth in May at the IFAT Trade Show in Munich and Shanghai. The IFAT is the world's leading exhibition for water, sewage, waste and raw materials management. Besides the certified UV disinfection systems that are already well-known on the market, both the silver-ion system Electro Katadyn, the Katadyn Multifilter MF and the mobile water filtration systems MOT met with the highest interest of products in the booth. Aquafides has been part of the Katadyn Group since late 2009 as the brand expanded its business into the category of industrial and community water treatment and took over majority ownership of Aquafides Switzerland and Germany. 


Katadyn France is supporting the Millet Expedition Project 2014

Katadyn France is supporting the winner expeditions of the Millet Expedition Project 2014

Katadyn France continues to actively support the Millet Expedition Project in 2014 with the brands Katadyn, Optimus, and Trek'n Eat. For seven years, the French outdoor company Millet has supported expeditions through the Millet Expedition Project. 300 adventurers have benefited from the MXP since 2007. In April, Katadyn France met with other outdoor industry partners involved to select the winner expeditions for 2014. Again, numerous teams applied for support in product, financing and technical assistance. Eleven groups made it to the finals, but only seven expeditions were chosen for support. The uniqueness of the story, adventure, motivation, feasibility, budget... all these points weighed into the final decision by members of the jury.  read more
