The company’s Hydro-Optic UV products get recognition for safe water treatment
Atlantium Technologies Ltd. has announced that it has been awarded NSF/ANSI 61 certification for drinking water system components for contact with drinking water. Atlantium has previously been certified for contact with drinking water under the strict Israeli Standard 5452.
The CoolBlue under-counter water purifier offers microbiological treatment in a three-stage design. Stage 1 utilizes Argonide’s NanoCeram technology with activated carbon for improved taste and the reduction of soluble contaminants. Stage 2 utilizes Fiberdyne technology from Pentair Filtration. Stage 3 uses patent-pending DEAL filtration media, which is optimized to attract, capture and retain submicron particles, including bacteria and viruses.
While powders and liquids are traditional treatment methods for biofilm, bacteria, algae and fungi in small- to medium-sized closed-loop water systems, many facility service managers are turning to safer, more convenient tablets. Tablet antimicrobial treatment can help improve system performance and help facilities save money on gas and electric costs and decrease the downtime typically required to treat systems, while also providing safety from spills and skin contact risks associated with liquid treatments, and from dust associated with powder treatments.
Using antimicrobial tablets to disinfect closed-loop water systems
I rise before the sun, grab my 5-gal jug and begin my walk to the water treatment trailer. I am just one of many hundreds of people who make the journey to this new watering spot every day for fresh drinking water for my family. In my community, it is not uncommon for there to be five to 10 children per household, whom this jug of water must sustain for the day. Who am I? I am a native of Grande-Saline, Haiti.

The company will continue production of water purifiers in Europe, but will also now make two of its models in a Chinese factory
Bluewater announced it will expand its global manufacturing capacity by starting production in China at the end of this year.
Geared to meet growing water purification demand in China and across Asia Pacific, the move means Bluewater will have a solid production network of factories in Europe and Asia. The company will continue production at it manufacturing site in Åtvidaberg, Sweden, as sales grow in Europe and North America.
PearlAqua is a UV-C LED product for water disinfection. The system incorporates UV-C LEDs into a compact water treatment unit that does not use chemicals or mercury-based UV lamps. The LEDs allow for instant, full-intensity power on startup, unlimited cycling and remote start/stop. The system can be used in a range of applications, including life sciences, medical devices, transportation and commercial water treatment.
Optan SMD is a surface-mount UV-C LED based on native aluminum nitride substrates. The unit enables effective and efficient biofilm and biofouling control and supports TOC monitoring in water. It also can be used as a low-voltage source of UV-C light for calibration of cameras, photodetectors, etc.
The conference will be held Nov. 15 to 19, 2015
Chlorinators Inc. will participate in the 76th International Water Conference sponsored by the Engineers Society of Western Pennsylvania, in Orlando, Fla., Nov. 15 to 19, 2015 celebrating 40 years serving the water quality industry.
Point-of-use (POU) and point-of-entry (POE) water treatment for microbial contaminants requires the end user and sales and service personnel to select their solutions wisely. The wrong choice could result in illness or even death from waterborne pathogens. While many professionals are well aware of water treatment choices, they may not be aware of the precautions necessary for micro- bial reduction applications.
Key considerations when implementing microbial filtration technology
The AccUView LED online UV analyzer is a cost-effective, low-maintenance instrument for monitoring transmission and absorbance of drinking water sterilized by a UV system. It incorporates a UVC LED, an efficient, long-lasting, mercury-free light source. Its new optical design provides consistent readings with online and laboratory transmission analyzers. Standard features include simple calibration procedures, a bubble rejection system and more.
