Aquionics recognized for its PearlAqua UV-C LED water disinfection device
Aquionics was presented with the 2013 International Ultraviolet Assn. (IUVA) Product Innovation Award for its PearlAqua UV-C LED water disinfection device. According to IUVA, the biennial award recognizes an exemplary product or process involving UV applications.
Each nominated product or process is reviewed for innovation in design and engineering and its impact on society. Judges consist of a committee of industry experts representing academia, regulators, manufacturers, users and design consultants.
Introduced in 2012, the PearlAqua is the world’s first water disinfection system to use UV-C LED lamps. This highly efficient technology allows instant full intensity on startup and mercury-free water treatment with a fraction of the energy usage of conventional UV systems. The compact system can operate as a standalone unit or be easily integrated into OEM devices, ultrapure water generators, process water loops, medical sterilization equipment and many other point-of-use applications.
The PearlAqua is part of the new UV-LED Pearl product range from Aquionics.
