Premier Tech Aqua Introduces a Self-Cleaning UV for the Disinfection of
Wastewater from Isolated Dwellings

RIVIÈRE-DU-LOUP, QC, July 12 /CNW Telbec/ - Premier Tech Aqua (PTA), a business unit of Premier Tech, proudly announces the introduction of a tertiary treatment system using a "self-cleaning" ultraviolet radiation (UV) unit for the disinfection of wastewater from isolated dwellings, following a business agreement combining PTA's strengths to those of UV Pure Technologies Inc.

This automatic cleaning system directly answers the concern highlighted back in 2008: how to ensure that UV disinfection units will, at all time, respect the requirements of tertiary treatment when no sites share the same conditions.

The "self-cleaning" functionality of DiUV Self-cleaning ensures a daily cleaning independently of the variations of water quality and lifestyle (flow rates and stop periods) observed from a household to the next. PTA's DiUV Self-cleaning unit starts one (1) cleaning cycle of duration of five (5) minutes each, every four (4) hours, eliminating quartz fouling. Consequently, there are six (6) cleanings a day, for a total of 2 000 annually, that ensure with reliability the respect of environmental requirements. Compact and flexible, the DiUV Self-cleaning is compatible with most advanced secondary treatment systems. A treatment chain including an advanced secondary treatment system and the DiUV Self-cleaning must be certified NQ-3680-910 to be installed in the province of Quebec.

"Premier Tech Aqua's mission is about offering to homeowners, communities, institutions, businesses and industries the best quality/price ratio wastewater treatment solutions adapted to their respective realities, said Henri Ouellet, President of Environmental Technology Group of Premier Tech. The team has worked at responding to the concern around the maintenance of disinfection UV systems to ensure, despite site condition variations, the safety of public health and that of the environment".

The DiUV Self-cleaning unit is the result of follow-up and validation analysis of many UV disinfection systems, working in different conditions, which integrated UV Pure's Crossfire(TM) technology with the "self-cleaning" functionality.

"Field validation tests demonstrated the high reliability and efficiency of the self-cleaning systems using the UV Crossfire(TM) technology. We observed that the treatment performance was maintained even in the most demanding conditions, declared Roger Lacasse, Scientific and Technical Director at Premier Tech Aqua. Moreover, the treatment chain including an Ecoflo(R) Biofilter combined to the DiUV Self-cleaning is now NQ 3680-910 certified."

Homeowners and communities now benefit from an alternative solution to tertiary treatment with disinfection that brings total peace of mind when considering the safety of public health.
