NSF/ANSI 55 separates UV water purification systems into two distinct classes.
Class A UV water systems should be used with well or surface water (streams, lakes, etc.) and are designed to inactivate and/or remove microorganisms, including bacteria, viruses, Cryptosporidium oocysts and Giardia cysts from contaminated water.
Class A UV systems are not intended for the treatment of water with an obvious contamination or intentional source, such as raw sewage, nor are they intended to convert wastewater to drinking water. They are intended to be installed on visually clear (not colored, cloudy or turbid) water.
Class B UV water systems, on the other hand, should be used with municipal water or treated water and are designed for supplemental bactericidal treatment of disinfected public drinking water, or other drinking water that has been tested and deemed acceptable for human consumption by the state or local health agency having jurisdiction.
Class B UV systems are designed to reduce normally occurring, nonpathogenic nuisance microorganisms only. These systems are not intended for the disinfection of microbiologically unsafe water and may not make individual or general cyst claims. Microbiological health effects claims may not be made on Class B systems.
There are options for pathogen free water.
No power required. No chemicals. No pathogens
Quantum Disinfection™ is a catalyst:
disinfects the water with its activated surfaces, no power, no chemicals, no maintenance.
Quantum Disinfection™ is a ceramic:
alumina based, environmental friendly, odorless and insoluble.
Quantum Disinfection™ is a new phenomenon:
attracts electrons from microorganisms causing their entire structure to collapse.
Quantum Disinfection™ is a solid media:
easy to apply, easy to handle, always placed in packed beds.
Quantum Disinfection™ kills the microorganisms instantly:
there is no contact time required, there are no traces of microorganisms.
Water simply has to pass over the Quantum Disinfection™ media and the microorganisms are instantly destroyed through the catalytic electron exchange. Give Any Device Disinfection Capability.
QD is used in systems for well water and city water sources for homes, offices, and process applications: up to 12 GPM.
A small quantity of QD can disinfect all POU systems such as faucets, under the sink units, ice and beverage machines, coolers, misters, showers, dental chairs, etc.
Post Reverse Osmosis
QD is used as a safeguard against HPC’s for RO systems. You can really drink RO water now!
QD can be tailored to many custom applications across a large variety of markets and flow rates.
