New Highly Efficient Aquionics UV-LED Transmittance Monitor

PearlSense T254 features ultra-long lamp life and environmentally friendly operation

Erlanger, Ky. (September 26, 2013) – The new Aquionics PearlSense T254 is the world’s first transmittance monitor to use UV-LED technology. The monitor provides UV disinfection system manufacturers and operators with highly accurate UV transmittance (UVT) readings in all conditions over an extended lifetime, ensuring proper UV dosing and efficient operation.

PearlSense T254 features a patent-pending fixed position single lamp and sensor design with an automatic two-point reference check. The design provides more accuracy than products using conventional UV lamps and sensors. A UV-LED light source allows instant activation and highly efficient, mercury-free operation. The PearlSense T254 is capable of battery and solar-powered operation, and can be used in a variety of configurations including handheld operation, installed directly in a pipe or bracket-mounted in an open channel environment. The monitor can withstand unlimited cycling without lamp degradation.

UVT is used to track changes in water quality, and can also be used to alert to the presence of organic compounds and other issues. UVT values are communicated to the control system of a UV reactor and used in calculating the most efficient treatment process. From large municipal water treatment facilities to small food and beverage applications, consistently accurate UVT values can save energy and ultimately provide superior water quality.

The PearlSense is part of the new UV-LED Pearl product range from Aquionics.

Along with Aquionics’ traditional UV product offering, attendees can see demonstrations of the new Pearl line of products, which includes the PearlAqua, PearlAero, PearlSense, and UV Connect. The PearlAqua is a mercury-free, low power UV-LED disinfection unit for low flow applications. The PearlAero offers a customizable array of UV-LED modules for easy integration into existing surface treatment applications, such as curing. The Pearl Sense is a UV transmittance monitor available in a handheld battery powered model and in-process model for open channel installation or direct placement into a pressurized pipe.

Also on display is the UV Connect telemetry system. The device connects to a user’s control panel and broadcasts critical operating information, such as alarms and lamp hours, to the user’s smartphone or tablet device.

Aquionics UVSwim Now NSF/ ANSI Standard 50-2012 Certified

Erlanger, Ky. (September 12, 2013) – The UVSwim I line of pool and spa disinfection systems by Aquionics has become the first complete UV system range to achieve the new NSF/ ANSI Standard 50-2012 certification. The certification applies to all seven models of UVSwim I from 100+ to 4500+.

The Aquionics UVSwim I has received NSF/ ANSI certification.

The Aquionics UVSwim I has received NSF/ ANSI certification.

The NSF/ ANSI Standard 50-2012 certifies the design, construction and performance of the UVSwim I system, including the full inactivation of the parasite cryptosporidium. In addition to the new certification, all models also have approval to drinking water standards in the U.S. (U.S. EPA) and Germany (DVGW).

Water passing through the UVSwim I is exposed to specific wavelengths of UV light, which destroy microorganisms on a cellular level. When coupled with chlorine treatment, the system provides a highly effective second barrier against chlorine-resistant microorganisms such as cryptosporidium. The amount of chlorine required to maintain safe conditions is dramatically reduced. UV treatment also eliminates chloramines, the byproduct of chlorine disinfection that can damage pool equipment and cause skin and eye irritation.
