Acuva recently became the first in this sector to receive NSF/ANSI 55 Class B Certification. Acuva’s Eco 1.5 is the first and only UV-LED drinking water purifier in the world to receive this industry certification for verified microbiological disinfection.
“NSF/ANSI 55 is one of the most established and trusted standards for ultraviolet (UV) microbiological water treatment systems. Eco 1.5 exceeded all of the Class B microbial disinfection requirements.” stated Dr. Ashkan Babaie, Acuva’s Director of Advanced Engineering. The scope of the standard also includes product material safety and structural integrity. Eco 1.5 is manufactured with high quality stainless steel, offering superior durability while reducing product degradation and maintenance.
“Eco 1.5 is engineered with patented technology to deliver environmentally friendly microbial disinfection without the use of mercury or chemicals. Furthermore Acuva UV-LED systems use up to 95% less energy than UV-lamps given the instant on/off point of use functionality.” states Dr. Graham Duck, Acuva VP of Engineering.
Acuva UV-LED is clearly the next generation of UV water purification. It offers all the superior disinfection performance of UV with the energy saving, low maintenance and environmental benefits of LEDs. Acuva’s Eco 1.5 will be officially released in September 2018.
