San Diego, CA – NeoTech Aqua Solutions, Inc., the industry leader in High-Efficiency Ultra-Violet (UV) water treatment systems, announces the validation of their D438 UV disinfection system and large Patriot manifolds for municipal and potable water applications. The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), through their Environmental Technology Verification (ETV) program in cooperation with the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF), awarded the validation.

“The EPA’s validation of NeoTech’s UV technology signals a new, more economical and more efficient chapter for municipalities globally,” says Stephen Dunham, NeoTech Aqua’s President/CEO. “Our 99.8% reflective chamber UV product line is known in the pharmaceutical, microelectronics, food/beverage and recreational water markets. But leveraging this technology in multi-million gallon per day installations makes the savings in capital equipment, maintenance, and operational expenses particularly compelling for municipalities.”

NeoTech’s new validation involved the cooperation of the EPA and NSF who established a test protocol to meet the EPA’s requirements under their UV Disinfection Guidance Manual (UVDGM). Upon the EPA’s approval of the protocol, testing of the D438 was initiated at NSF’s Laboratories in Ann Arbor, MI and witnessed by the EPA’s UV experts. During the test, the NeoTech D438 was confirmed to achieve a minimum 3-log cryptosporidium inactivation at flows ranging from 151 to 501 gpm. When installed in a Patriot skid configuration, these units may be combined to efficiently treat millions of gallons per day. NSF has certified the D438 under the Public Drinking Water Equipment (PDWE) process and the EPA has validated the product under their ETV program.

Debbie Kaye, NeoTech Aqua’s new Vice-President of Global Municipal Technologies commented, “The EPA’s ETV certification of the D438 is the first in many years for an American company entering the competitive municipal market. As a manager and operator of major utility operations and experience as a design engineer specializing in treatment systems, I can attest to the value of this technology for municipalities using UV for disinfection as well as municipalities interested in exploring different disinfection options. The response from the market thus far is encouraging, with several municipalities already moving forward on the installation of NeoTech’s UV technology.” All of NeoTech Aqua’s products are built in San Diego, California at the NeoTech Aqua Solutions headquarters.
