Lync, a Watts brand, introduces UV-H, an eco-friendly UV disinfection system for a variety of applications, including potable water.
UV-H is a low-maintenance system configurable up to 100 GPM and mitigates risks associated with microbiological contamination and biofilm formation in low- and high-flow commercial water heating and piping systems and protect building occupants. It inactivates 99.9999% (6-log) of Legionella bacteria to effectively address concerns related to occupant health and system metallurgy.
Certified Systems with a State-of-the-art Reactor Design
The systems are certified to NSF/ANSI/CAN 61 & NSF/ANSI 372 and are available for potable, reuse, or wastewater applications. A chemical-free solution, Lync UV-H effectively treats inlet water through a 360° UV light emission provided by Crossfire Technology™ and a two-lamp design. The reactor design reduces the possibility for microorganisms to be blocked from the UV light by particles.
“Lync UV-H is more effective than other UV disinfection options because the unique design enables the treatment of water with hardness levels up to 50 grains per gallon and iron levels up to 3 mg/L while meeting environmental regulations. This not only significantly reduces the maintenance but also eliminates the need to use a softener – which saves money and is more environmentally sustainable,” said Armin Madani, Lync Product Manager, Commercial Water Quality.
He continued, “UV-H is a perfect fit for Lync’s line of solutions and furthers our mission to support commercial and institutional buildings in improving their water heating efficiency, safety, and water quality for their benefit, as well as that of our environment.”
Lync UV-H is engineered for trouble-free maintenance. Automatic self-cleaning wipers and built-in purging prevent fouling of the quartz sleeve by mineral scaling and biofilm, making it up to 10 times more effective than conventional UV systems in difficult water applications. The UV lamps are configured in the front cabinet, simplifying replacement and eliminating the need for maintenance clearance at the top and bottom of the system for instant space savings.
Because UV-H is available up to 100 GPM for potable models and 75 GPM for reuse and wastewater models, it simplifies meeting specific system requirements and lowers installation costs for high-flow systems. It is ideal for a variety of application types, all new and existing commercial buildings and systems, such as cooling towers, HVAC chillers, and water storage tanks.
Lync UV-H addresses the growing concern associated with microbiological contamination in commercial building domestic water due to several factors, such as fluctuations in residual disinfectant levels, water chemistry, and microorganism load. It also meets the market need for solutions that decrease the complexity of equipment and piping systems.Discover more about UV-H
