The technology boasts a spectrum of applications while its product features significantly reduce the environmental impact of water purification
Based on its recent analysis of the global ultraviolet light-emitting diode (UV-LED) point-of-use systems for the water purification market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes ACUVA Technologies, Inc. (ACUVA) with the 2019 Global New Product Innovation Award. Acuva’s innovative globally patented optical lensing technology, IntenseBeam™, enables applications such as the Eco series of consumer products and Strike Module Platform. The Eco 1.5 and Eco-NX are the only consumer ultraviolet light-emitting diode (UV-LED) water purification systems in the world which are certified against NSF-55 Class B standards. With an intellectual property portfolio of 16 granted and pending patents, Acuva’s innovative reactor design combines the proven disinfection performance of UV germicidal irradiation with the effectiveness of UV-LEDs.
“Acuva’s patented design allows for precise control of optics, hydrodynamics, and kinetics within the UV chamber to deliver an intense beam of UV directly into flowing water. It has since developed a suite of products that integrate its IntenseBeam™ technology to provide reliable UV-LED water disinfection solutions,” said Fredrick Royan, Vice President at Frost & Sullivan. “Acuva manufacturers its proprietary water purification systems with high-quality stainless steel, offering superior durability while eliminating product degradation and maintenance. Product performance is not affected by scaling as IntenseBeam™ technology does not rely on reflective surface properties.”
Acuva’s IntenseBeam™ technology is featured in its Strike UV-LED Module Platform for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), as well as Acuva’s consumer UV-LED water purification systems – the Arrow and Eco series of products. Acuva backs up its solutions with seamless customer service experiences. Its customer service process for its OEM customers includes a thorough needs analysis and engineering support for integration, through to marketing support.
In 2019, Acuva entered partnerships with major OEMs of water, ice and beverage appliances to integrate Strike UV-LED water disinfection modules in the Philippines, China, India and Europe, multiplying the positive effect that Acuva’s technology can bring to the world through long lasting, chemical-free water disinfection. With each installation of Strike reducing the need 1.2 million single-use water bottles over its lifetime, these partnerships mean a significant win against the war on plastic waste.
