Aquafides UV water disinfection systems are validated to meet the stringent global performance benchmarks as part of DVGW, ÖVGW and SVGW certification. The DVGW (German Technical and Scientific Association for Gas and Water), ÖVGW (Austrian Association for Gas and Water) and SVGW (Swiss Gas and Water Industry Association) decree technical rules which set the standard within Europe and globally for optimum system performance and quality.
The UV disinfection systems have been through rigorous testing, which under the DVGW standard validates the system to ensure it achieves a minimum UV dose. Under the DVGW standard, UV systems are validated by independent bioassays where achieved reduction equivalent doses (REDs) are established based on inactivation of indicator microorganisms. The DVGW code stipulates that a UV system must achieve a RED of 40 mJ/cm2, which is sufficient for comprehensive disinfection of virtually all human pathogens in drinking water.
The series has a compact design and the ability to be installed either vertically or horizontally. It consists of 12 models, so there is a system to treat every level of water quality and flow rate. Systems are easily maintained and can be installed into new or existing water infrastructures. The systems are said to be up to 75% more efficient than comparable systems in the market.
User-friendly electronic controls provide operation of the system. Several pre-alarm and alarm options inform the operator if the system is not operating as required. The software for these systems can be modified at any time and uploaded with the use of a USB stick or a computer.
