The Cool WAPI from North Star Devices

Robert Nepper is involved with the Rotary club in a project to manufacture thousands of Water Pasteurization Indicators (WAPIs) for use in projects throughout the world. This has lead to the creation of the company North Star Devices.

  • December 2013: Robert Nepper reports that they have made improvements to the SuperWAPI, which features a heat resistant stainless steel cable. North Star Devices' WAPI is the only WAPI offered as a hammer together design, not requiring heat sealing. The SuperWAPI is also now available as a kit.
