Atlantiumís Hydro-Optic Disinfectionô systems enable drinking water suppliers to meet today's tighter regulations and make the move towards environmentally-friendly, safe disinfection. The Hydro-Optic Disinfection system is validated and meets the strict standards set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for inactivation of microorganisms, parasites as well as viruses at a 4-log reduction level. This makes Atlantiumís pre-approved UV disinfection system the right disinfection choice for water suppliers.
Disinfecting drinking water
Advantages of Atlantiumís system for drinking water suppliers
Monitoring and Control. Of vital significance to both regulators and operators is the Hydro-Optic Disinfection systemís two-sensors-per-UV-lamp setup which continuously measures both lamp intensity and waterís UV transmissivity. Real-time data from these sensors, as well as real-time flow rate data from an external flow meter, constantly update the Monitoring and Control program. The real-time display of key parameters (dose, UV transmissivity, flow rate, lamp intensity) on the Monitoring and Controlís screen is extremely helpful to system operators. It facilitates immediate understanding of the situation at any point during operation and simplifies troubleshooting and diagnosis, if necessary. Unique also to Atlantiumís system, the screen shows the actual UV dose currently being delivered based on a validated algorithm, including the safety factors required by the EPA.
Energy savings. Monitoring and Control ensure that water continuously receives the UV dose required for inactivation of target microorganisms by triggering automatic UV lamp adjustments in response to changes in the measured parameters. This important built-in capability helps water suppliers avoid wasteful and unnecessary energy use while still delivering the required disinfection dose.
Required reporting features. Maintaining the required dose assures suppliers that they stay in compliance with their health department and operating regulations. The componentís logging and reporting features produce the required regulatory compliance reports.
Disinfection of viruses at 4-log reduction
In November 2007, Atlantium demonstrated that its Hydro-Optic Disinfection system effectively inactivates Adenovirus at a 4-log reduction level. This achievement opens the way for suppliers of both surface and ground water to choose an environmentally-friendly disinfection method that truly provides high quality, safe water without creation of any disinfection by-products.
