Combining technologies provides versatility in treating different kinds of water sources while keeping costs low
Rapid urbanization in the Asia Pacific region is prompting the rural population to intensify its demands for a better quality of life, which includes access to cleaner and purer water. This, coupled with demand for high-quality water from water-intensive industries, makes a robust case for mobile water treatment in the region.
New analysis from Frost and Sullivan, "Asia-Pacific Mobile Water Treatment Market," finds that the market earned revenues of $48.2 million in 2011 and is expected to reach $298.3 million by 2017.
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 Inc. specializes in providing high-quality direct replacement parts for various manufacturers. From Aquafine to Zed, it offers an array of replacement parts for UV treatment systems, including current models and obsolete designs.

Update includes setting a limit for E. coli to better protect public health
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has updated the rule for pathogens in drinking water, including setting a limit for E. coli to better protect public health.
The Revised Total Coliform Rule ensures that all of the approximately 155,000 public water systems in the U.S., which provide drinking water to more than 310 million people, take steps to prevent exposure to pathogens like E. coli. These types of pathogens can cause a variety of illnesses, with symptoms such as acute abdominal discomfort or, in more extreme cases, kidney failure or hepatitis.
