Beit Shemesh, Israel (PRWEB) September 4, 2009
At the Drinktec show in the New Munich Trade Fair Centre (Hall A4, Booth 136), Atlantium will be telling its visitors how they can achieve complete microbial inactivation using entirely safe and sustainable water disinfection technology. Atlantium Technologies (http://www.atlantium.com), developers of the patented Hydro-Optic Disinfection™ (HOD) system, will drive home the message that its HOD ultraviolet (UV) system can serve in any number of capacities from primary disinfection to post-granular activated carbon (GAC) filter disinfection, water re-use disinfection, and more.
Added value: Chemical-free disinfection + water and energy conservation
Atlantium's HOD systems deliver a 5-log level of microbial inactivation, guaranteeing targeted results. Based solely on the use of Hydro-Optic UV light, the HOD system is totally safe, allowing beverage manufacturers to reduce or eliminate chlorine or other chemicals as a means of disinfection.
For major applications used by the beverage industry, the HOD also leads to streamlined manufacturing costs and a reduction in the water use ratio. For example, placing the HOD system after the GAC filter or at the end of the product water line protects against microbial breakthroughs to such an extent that frequency of GAC sanitation is drastically reduced. As a result, internationally known beverage manufacturers have documented savings of millions of gallons of water; this, added to the time, manpower and energy saved through decreased interruptions to production, and more efficient manufacturing processes.
According to Mr. Rotem Arad, director of the Food & Beverage business unit, Atlantium's beverage customers in particular, "have discovered that in addition to superior, environmentally-friendly disinfection, with the HOD they are getting even more tangible and quantifiable value through conservation of water, energy and manpower, not to mention significantly less disruption to production processes. All these substantial gains enable them to meet both their customers' demand for fewer chemicals and sustainable production practices and their headquarters' mandate to reduce the water use ratio. This adds profit to all sides of the equation and certainly to the bottom line."
HOD systems are engineered for value
The HOD system, which captures and uses more UV light than any other comparable technology, manifests the optimal integration of UV light and hydraulic flow patterns, along with unimpeded water flow in the system's disinfection chamber. Facilitated by the systems' structural configuration, these elements lead to extremely high levels of microbial inactivation within a truly environmentally-friendly system and ensure overall quality and integrity of the water and the manufactured product.
Validated according to US EPA protocols
The Atlantium HOD R200 series, validated using U.S. Environmental Protection Agency protocols and favored by many beverage manufacturers, includes the engineering advantages mentioned above and also features UV lamps isolated from the water. This prevents any possibility of mercury entering the production line in the event of lamp breakage. An R200 demo unit will be at the Drinktec booth. Other, in-line, energy-efficient models are also available.
About Atlantium's Hydro-Optic Disinfection™
Introduced to the water disinfection community in 2005, Hydro-Optic Disinfection technology, with its revolutionary design and operating principles, has been achieving unprecedented high levels of microbial inactivation, never seen before in UV reactors. Atlantium adapted the principle of Total Internal Reflection, combining it with advanced optic and hydraulic techniques to significantly lengthen the path of UV rays. This paradigm-shifting approach has been proven to deliver a uniform UV dose distribution in the disinfection chamber, exposing all microorganisms in the water to the same required UV dose. The result is consistent and dependable high levels of disinfection that have paved the way for the system to serve in applications such as primary disinfection and replacement of heat pasteurization, examples of two applications previously thought to be inappropriate for UV systems.
