Acuva Technologies is developing highly efficient, low maintenance and low power ultraviolet light emitting diode (UV-LED) water purification systems for processing low to moderate volumes of water for drinking water applications for mobile and off grid situations.
The proprietary Acuva reactor is a compact, modular, and scalable system comprising UV-LEDs. The system provides a dose of photo radiation to water flowing through the device to obtain germicidal destruction of biological contaminants such as viruses and bacteria.
IDEA BEHIND ACUVA
The idea behind this water purification technology emerges from very recent breakthroughs in UV-LED technology & a proprietary UV-LED reactor developed following extensive research at the University of British Columbia.
ABOUT ACUVA SYSTEMS
Acuva’s purification system is a novel water treatment concept based on UV technology, which is a proven and safe water treatment alternative. UV water purification systems are free of the harmful by-products associated with chemical disinfection, and has the added benefit of not compromising the taste, color, or odor of water.
The system operates on a battery at a very low voltage and power, making it suitable for various situations including off-grid areas and remote communities in any part of the world.
The UV-LED purification system overcomes other incumbent technologies, such as reverse osmosis or UV-lamp systems, by eliminating the need for chemical storage, high electric power and wasteful amounts of water.
