Water disinfection system.

The UV-Pearl uses UV-C LED technology, allowing instant full intensity on start-up and mercury-free water treatment. 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. It uses highly efficient UV LED lamps, which emit waves of light in the deep UV spectral (UV-C) range that destroy microorganisms on a cellular level. The LEDs can be tuned to different wavelengths from 240 to 280 nm, allowing targeting of specific pathogens. It is capable of producing a UV dose of 60mJ/[cm.sup.2] at a flow of 0.5 gpm (1.891pm) with only 50mW of optical power. These results were repeated at two independent laboratories using the Bacteriophage MS2 virus as a subject, and represent a significant improvement from UV-C LED research presented over the last decade. It is capable of withstanding unlimited cycling without lamp degradation. The system is not affected by water temperature and can continue to operate with no flow. * Aquionics Inc., Erlanger, KY 41018. www.aquionics.com or call 800-925-0440
