NSF International has certified the first Class A ultraviolet (UV) microbiological water treatment systems to NSF/ANSI Standard 55. NSF/ANSI 55 provides the minimum technical requirements and performance testing methods for UV microbiological water treatment systems.
Trojan Technologies, Inc., manufactured the first two Class A systems to receive NSF certification, UVMax Pro7 and UVMax Pro15.
The third system to receive certification was Hallett Water Unit 10, manufactured by UV Pure Technologies, Inc. UV Class A systems are designed to disinfect or remove microorganisms, including bacteria and viruses, from contaminated surface and ground water.
The NSF Drinking Water Treatment Unit Program certified UVMax Pro7, UVMax Pro15 and the Hallett Water Unit 10 to NSF/ANSI 55 UV Class A, enabling the products to bear the NSF mark. The mark indicates to consumers and regulators that the products have been independently tested and certified. The products are also listed on the NSF web site.
"By receiving the first certifications for Class A UV water treatment systems, both Trojan and UV Pure have set a high standard for the rest of the water treatment industry," said Mark Jost, Senior Vice President of Water Systems. "We're proud to issue these certifications and look forward to continuing our work with Trojan and UV Pure."
"We were impressed with the depth and rigor of the certification process, and are very pleased to have met all the requirements," said Doug Alexander, Executive Vice President of Trojan Technologies. "We believe this certification will validate our product leadership and allow us to increase sales in markets requiring NSF certification."
