UV-LED Water Technology
How does UV-LED Technology Work?
In ACUVA systems, UV-LED light inactivates harmful microorganisms by disrupting their DNA, leaving them unable to perform vital cellular functions.
Our UV-LED water systems are designed with precise optics and hydrodynamics. Water flows through the chamber in a controlled environment, matching water velocity and UV irradiance; creating consistent, reliable performance. ACUVA systems are flow-activated, using minimal power consumption while extending product lifetime.
Our patented IntenseBeam™ technology uses UV-LEDs and optical lensing to deliver a precise beam of UV-C energy into flowing water. The collimated beam inactivates waterborne pathogens efficiently.

UV-LED Systems vs UV Lamp Systems
The conventional technique for UV water treatment utilizes UV mercury lamps. However, there are serious concerns related to the environmental impact and
performance limitations of UV lamps.

Typically Every Year
An Alternative to Plastic Bottles
A single Acuva unit can pay for itself in less than a year while significantly reducing the need of more than 100,000 single-use plastic water bottles in its lifetime.
