Off-Grid UV-LED Water Disinfection
Ingesting microbiologically contaminated water is one of the most common sickness routes for people living off the grid, such as remote communities and those travelling with recreational vehicles. Ultraviolet (UV) disinfection utilizes strong short wavelength (250 280 nm) radiation to inactivate microorganisms by destroying the nucleic acids and disrupting their DNA, leaving them unable to perform vital cellular functions.
Integrated Dose Simulation Tool
for UV-LED Reactors
Using virtual prototyping for the design of UV LED reactors can help significantly to reduce the cost and development time. Without the proper simulation tools, the reactor design may need to go through multiple design revisions and prototyping stages without delivering the required dose or LRV at the end. Complete simulation of a reactor’s performance requires precise modelling of reactor’s hydrodynamics, optics and microbial kinetics, each of which are equally important for an accurate reactor simulation.
Ice Makers and UV-LED
Ice machines are an extremely common piece of equipment and can be found around the world in a variety of settings and applications. While ice is classified as food, ice makers are frequently not treated with the same handling protocols that other food and beverage equipment is.
The cleanliness of ice machines is a known issue to manufacturers of these devices, as well as an increasing number of the general public. Several studies have been conducted on…
