Move allows increased production for new UV-Pearl UV-C LED disinfection system
To accommodate for its continued growth, ultraviolet (UV) disinfection specialist Aquionics has moved to a new location in Erlanger, Ky. The new facility is close to the international airport, and allows the company to complete more of its manufacturing in house.
Ultraviolet (UV) disinfection products are one of the fastest growing segments of the water treatment market today. One of the advantages of selling UV systems is that every system a dealer sells should generate an annual UV lamp replacement sale for as long as the system is in service. The challenge is that the technology that has existed in the UV market to date has yet to fully capture this annuity, or “razor blade,” UV lamp business.

The UV-Pearl uses UV-C LED technology, allowing instant full intensity on startup and mercury-free water treatment. The compact system can operate as a standalone unit or be integrated into OEM devices, ultrapure water generators, medical sterilization equipment and other POU applications. It uses UV LED lamps, which emit waves of light in the deep UV spectral range that destroy microorganisms on a cellular level. The lamps can be tuned to different wavelengths to target specific pathogens.
ABuv residential and light commercial UV systems are tested and certified to NSF Standard 55 for Class B disinfection performance and have NSF-rated flow rates of 5.5, 7.8 and 12 gpm. They feature flow restrictors, lamp failure alarms, lamp-change reminders and countdown lamp timers. The units provide supplemental treatment for water that has been tested and deemed acceptable for human consumption.
UV Superstore announced the newest addition to its line of UV products: Basic Series of Residential UV units. The Basic Series offers simple and reliable units at an economical price. Two models are available: the BA-10 and the BA-15, with maximum flow rates of 10 and 15 gpm, respectively. These units are designed to mount either horizontally or vertically for maximum flexibility.
Multiplex integrates Hallett and Upstream UV systems in multiples of two, three, four or five to handle a variety of water treatment applications. The systems, housed in NEMA cabinets, are for both wastewater and potable water applications. They treat up to 150-gpm flows and are ideal for hazardous or wet environments. The systems come ready to commission with everything connected, and are self-cleaning, with dual smart sensors.
Clean water is essential for life. Nearly one billion people around the world lack access to safe water, and approximately 3.5 million deaths each year are linked to water-related diseases. The scarcity of clean water is most apparent in developing countries, where limited resources are available for water treatment.

Water purity issues in developing nations and third-world countries populate the news, but pure drinking water can be just as difficult to achieve in developed countries. In the U.S., significant amounts of tap and well water are not fit for drinking due to heavy industrial and environmental pollution that result in water contamination. Even low-level exposure to some contaminants can cause illness, including liver damage, cancer and other serious ailments.
Keeping Treatment on Track
