Acuva developed the Eco Water Purifier by designing their optics and hydrodynamics into the reactor systems around Klaran UVC LEDs from Crystal IS. Klaran UVC LEDs offer effective combinations of wavelength and power to combat water contamination, and maintain a superior ratio of the total power output to the power used for disinfection compared to other options in the market. This ratio is possible in part because Klaran UVC LEDs maintain a peak germicidal operating wavelength range of 260 nm to 270 nm, which allows these products to effectively inactivate microorganisms.
Like all Acuva products, the Eco Water Purifier disinfects water with a two part process involving a composite filter and a UVC LED chamber. The composite filter removes sediment and the activated carbon enhances the taste, odor, and color, while the UVC LED chamber sterilizes harmful bacteria and viruses by disrupting their DNA. Using Klaran UVC LEDs in the Eco Water Purifier enables Acuva’s product to radiate water with wavelengths in the range of 260 nm to 270 nm.
Another reason for choosing UVC LEDs in the product design is that they do not require storage of hazardous material, require minimal space for electrical components, and do not affect the smell or taste of the minerals in water. Acuva’s Eco Water Purifier is the least expensive of any similar product on the market and easily fits under a standard RV sink. One of the reasons the product is so compact is that it uses the water flowing through the purifier to cool the device, so it does not need the addition of fans for cooling, reducing the mechanical components and making it a maintenance-free product.
“With their low power consumption, durability and performance, Crystal IS UVC LEDs are an excellent addition to Acuva’s products. My team has found that these UVC LEDs are about 20-25 percent better in both disinfection power and effectiveness than other comparable products in the market. Crystal IS is very open about their product roadmap, which allows us to better plan our product development based on the evolution of this new technology.”
Acuva’s Eco Water Purifier is their most compact and economical system that is ideal for a single faucet of clean drinking water. Klaran UVC LEDs enable a the Eco Water Purifier to be more compact, more efficient water disinfection system. This allows it to easily fit under the sink in most RV or boats for clean drinking water in off-grid locations.
Crystal IS Klaran UVC LEDs are compact, are environmentally friendly, and offer efficient germicidal wavelength over traditional light sources. In addition, Klaran LEDs provide:
