WES to distribute leading UV water disinfection technology

water disinfection technologyLeading specialist in design, engineering and supply of chemical dosing systems WES has concluded an agreement to distribute pioneering AquiSense ultraviolet (UV) water disinfection solutions in the UK.

The mercury-free and chemical-free AquiSense PearlAqua range offers impressive key selling points including ‘instant on’ full power operation with unlimited cycling, low power consumption, and mains, battery or solar operation.

The range comprises of three UV light-emitting diode (LED) water disinfection platforms including the world’s smallest UV-C water treatment system – the PearlAqua Micro – which is compact enough for ‘point of use’, off-grid or mobile applications.

Also included in the range are the PearlAqua and the PearlAqua OEM platforms. Their new design features an easy-to-replace UV-C LED lamp module and configurable options, including forced air cooling, onboard data logging and digital I/O for device functionality.

All three self-contained units employ advanced chemical and mercury-free LEDs with a lamp life up to 10,000 hours to provide over 99.99% pathogen reduction.

Fletcher Roche, WES Business Growth Manager said: “We are delighted to be working with AquiSense Technologies, a world-class business with an outstanding range of brilliant water disinfection products.

“This latest deal will enable us to strengthen our product offering further. It means we are now able to supply the widest possible range of services from simple components to the complete design, build and installation of bulk chemical and UV dosing systems nationwide.

“As a distributor with an excellent reputation for reliable and fast delivery, we look forward to a long and fruitful partnership with AquiSense Technologies that will result in customers receiving not only the very best service possible, but also a choice of top-performing products and product back-up.”

Thomas Arnold, AquiSense European Sales Director, added: “These new product platforms are all game-changing products based on thousands of hours of ground-breaking research and engineering refinement.

“As the UV-C LEDs we use in our products have become powerful, and costs are reduced, compact UV systems can be designed to fit in almost any existing water system or device.”

Hiring Chemical Dosing Equipment Could Benefit Your Bottom Line

Water and wastewater system operators depend on chemical dosing equipment to maintain the quality of production output and ensure compliance with environmental and safety standards. While most plant operators are likely to make significant investments in this equipment, is that capital purchase always justifiable? There is, of course, the option to hire – and there are strong cases for this on both capex and opex fronts.

WES Group, one of the UK’s leading designers, developers and manufacturers of chemical dosing technology, announces the introduction of the company’s portable DosingCube.

This fully enclosed chemical digital dosing system is a lightweight, compact, has a bunded unit and is a plug and play solution.  It is ideal for both temporary and emergency use, to dose chemicals from IBCs or other chemical storage facilities and as an interchangeable modular system for permanent dosing systems.

Having spent many years studying and addressing the issues faced by process plant managers, WES Group developed and trademarked the DosingCube to offer users a safe and secure, portable system. It can be fully tailored to customer requirements, including chemical-specific colour options and logos and the integral timer allows dosing to be started and stopped at pre-set times.

The DosingCube contains high-quality digital dosing pumps that have a user interface, allowing dosing rates to be entered on screen. In addition, a range of operation modes allows for direct input of pulse or 4-20mA flow proportional control signals. The unit has a wide turndown ratio and with no need for complicated stroke rate calculations, offers a true plug and play solution.

The IP54 rated polyethylene enclosure houses an integral drip-tray that contains a switch, designed to detect any pipework leakage.  With flexibility built-in, the DosingCube is also dual voltage and comes with built-in pressure relief, load valves and pipework connections for both suction and delivery supply.

Managing Director, Kevin Wheeler, comments: “The importance of chemical dosing cannot be underestimated. Precise, consistent and controllable dosing is essential to maintaining quality, managing costs and complying with regulations. By creating the DosingCube, we are helping plant managers build flexibility into their systems, no matter whether they have an onsite emergency, or planned maintenance to accommodate”.
