One of my favorite things about joining the water treatment industry ha been learning about new technologies and systems which are offering new solutions to old problems. One of my favorite technologies has been ultra violet purification. Where membrane filters, carbon filters and sediment filters fail is in their ability to remove or reduce the amount of; protozoa, bacteria and viruses in the water. This is where UV systems, typically set up with a pre filter come into play.
According to the CDC (centre for disease control), UV systems have a "very high effectiveness in removing protozoa (for example, Cryptosporidium, Giardia) a very high effectiveness in removing bacteria (for example, Campylobacter, Salmonella, Shigella, E. coli) a high effectiveness in removing viruses (for example, Enteric, Hepatitis A, Norovirus, Rotavirus)" This a pretty extensive amount of water treatment solutions for one product to handle. This is why we are currently seeing UV technology being used in water treatment facilities across the globe. When New York City decided to upgrade it's water system and protect their residents from parasites such as; giardia and cryptosporidium they decided to do so with a 1.8 billion dollar UV disinfectant facility. Other cities are now joining in and adding this type of treatment. There are even some Canadian companies that are leading the way on both the technological side and manufacturing side of the industry. Clearford water systems is one of these companies. They have recently acquired UV pure technologies, another Canadian company, which has recently installed their treatment process in Jambudiyapura, India.
What's great about all of this is that more and more local companies are starting to offer UV treatment. At Nobottles for example, we are proud to offer our clients the ability to install a UV system on any one of the water filtration products we have available.
