On display, this year, was a unique range of water filters with a number of health benefits. These filters not only remove residual chlorine, rust and foreign substances from tap water; they also contain Vitamin C, which gets mixed in the filtered water that can then be used for bathing purposes.Talking about the product, Ashok Babu, Partner at Vijayawada-based Amravati International said, “These filters can easily be installed by the user himself. They offer a number of benefits, including relief from skin diseases, and the Vitamin C acts as an antioxidant to help prevent skin aging.” The company is also in the process of launching a range of eco-friendly mesh screens made of fusion-welded polyester low melting yarn. The mesh not only keeps bugs out, it also blocks dust particles, keeping the air inside fresh.

Also, on display is a breath analyser called Alkholocks, which is supported by a mobile app. The product is useful for addressing the drink-and-drive problem in India. The analyser can be installed inside the dashboard, where it can constantly monitor the breath of the driver.
