The Water Purifier is a deployable utility item that appears to be made of a re-purposed propane tank, copper piping and a sheet metal platform that keeps the Bucket in place. The (obvious) use of this device is to purify Salt Water. It is placed over top of a Camp Fire, and can hold up to 2,000 mL of fresh, potable Water. The Water Purifier is very useful for starting players, as well as players that live away from a stream or lake that require a good source of hydration. Being very cheap to craft, the Water Purifier is quite practical. And thankfully, you can still cook food in the Camp Fire while you purify water.

It takes 30 seconds to craft one Water Purifier.

Salt Water must be placed into the tank itself, while the bucket is the inventory wherein the purified Water enters after cooking. You know it's working when the tank is getting slowly drained and the bucket slowly fills.
