Acuva Technologies showcased a UV-LED water disinfection system in the Innovation Pavilion at WEFTEC in Chicago. The system uses the proven technology of ultraviolet germicidal irradiation and LED lights to disinfect drinking water that is produced in an energy efficient and environmentally friendly manner.

UV disinfection uses strong short-wavelength radiation to inactivate microorganisms by destroying the nucleic acids and disrupting their DNA. The Acuva system purifies water in two steps. A composite filter removes sediment while activated carbon removes taste, odor and color. The UV-LED chamber then sterilizes harmful bacteria and viruses.

Conventional UV disinfection for water treatment uses UV mercury lamps. The Acuva system adds the energy efficiency of LEDs. Visit www.acuvatech.com
