Students will study using solar energy to disinfect greywater
Today the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is awarding $13,742 to Austin Community College in Austin, Texas, for a solar water disinfection project under the People, Prosperity and the Planet (P3). Every year, the P3 program helps student teams pursue projects that deliver sustainable, alternative methods to address environmental challenges.
UV Superstore has announced new models in its BA Series line of UV water disinfection systems. Five models are now available, and they feature new flow rate options. With easy installation and flow rates from 4 to 16 gpm, these systems are designed to provide years of safe, effective and reliable service. BA Series whole-house UV systems inactivate pathogens without adding anything to the water—no aftertaste, no chemicals and no harmful byproducts.
Protector UV systems are made with polished 304 stainless steel. The systems have an audible alarm for lamp-out conditions and LED light signals when the system is operating. A digital display indicates lamp and ballast life in hours. The systems are suitable for 1-, 8- and 12-gpm flow rates and come with a seven-year warranty.
The center is collaborating with universities & global brands to research UV applications
Ultraviolet (UV) treatment specialist Hanovia and the Industrial Div. of its U.S. sister company Aquionics have launched a new UV Application Center in Shanghai. Aquionics provides industrial UV technology to the Americas, with Hanovia focusing on the rest of the world. Serving as a research and development center for research into the science of UV for new and emerging applications worldwide, the center will directly support existing and future requirements in Aquionics’ traditional markets for food and beverage, pharmaceuticals and high purity water.
The Coyote UV Series is an in-house engineered design manufactured in the United States that allows UV Superstore to provide fast turnaround times. These systems are specifically intended for a wide range of commercial and industrial applications. Their modular design offers easy field expansion; you can add on options in the future and even increase flow capacity for most models. These products are available in flow rates from 40 to 150 gpm for clear freshwater and can be used for disinfection, ozone destruction or TOC reduction.
Validated disruptive UV technology positions company for rapid growth
NeoTech Aqua Solutions Inc. added Jeff Green, founder and CEO of NeoTech, to its board of directors.
One of the most pronounced shifts in the water treatment industry is the rapidly burgeoning need to improve water quality. The need for water treatment systems is growing quickly, and, unfortunately, North America is hardly immune to challenges.
A look at three tried-and-true methods for water softening & treatment
Aquionics technologies will be featured as part of the show’s Innovation Pavilion
Aquionics has been selected to exhibit its new line of highly efficient UV-C LED disinfection equipment at Singapore International Water Week’s Innovation Pavilion. This special exhibit runs the duration of the show June 1 to 5, 2014 at the Marina Bay Sands Expo & Convention Centre Singapore, Stand IE8.
The High Output (HO) line of UV water treatment systems is designed for commercial and industrial applications. These products are intended for disinfection, ozone destruction and total organic carbon reduction, and are available in flow rates from 30 to 800 gpm. Each system is specifically engineered to provide optimized flow and retention time to effectively reduce bacteria by up to 99.9%. Dosage levels of 30,000 µw seconds per sq cm and higher at rated flow provide effective UV treatment.
