How does UV-LED Disinfection Work?
UV disinfection kills harmful microorganisms by disrupting their DNA, leaving them unable to perform vital cellular functions.
Our UV-LED water disinfection systems are designed with precise optic and hydrodynamics. Water flows through the chamber in a controlled environment, matching water velocity and UV irradiance; creating consistent purification. Our systems are flow-activated, using minimal power consumption while extending product lifetime.
Technology you can Trust
Our patented IntenseBeam™ technology uses UV-LEDs and optical lensing to deliver a precise beam of UVC energy into flowing water. The collimated bean inactivates waterborne pathogens directly, giving you drinking water you can trust.
UV-LED is the Ideal Solution
Gold Standard Purification
Low Power and Maintenance-Free
Sustained High Performance
Better for the Environment
Why UV-LED purify is more effective than Reverse Osmosis.
Works on low pressure (even at 12 psi water pressure)
Requires high water pressure (require at least 40 psi)
Kills bacteria and viruses
Bacteria and viruses are trapped in membrance
High maintenance due to frequent replacement of cartridges
Effective for disinfecting all types of bacteria and viruses
Not effective for all bacteria and viruses due to water bypass and large poresize
Does not waste water
Up to 70% of water wasted
Keeps healthy minerals in water
Removes healthy minerals
No need of storage tank
Needs a storage tank
Low cost of ownership
High cost of ownership
