ERLANGER, KY, June 17, 2009 -- Aquionics' InLine+ series of UV water disinfection systems are now fully validated in accordance with the USEPA UV Disinfection Guidance Manual (UVDGM). The validation certifies the use of the systems for the Long Term 2 Enhanced Surface Water Treatment Rule (LT2ESWTR) released by EPA in November 2006.

The testing was conducted by Carollo Engineers at its Portland, Oregon validation facility and covered a three-dimensional matrix of UV transmittance, flow and reduction equivalent dose, using both T1 and MS-2 phage test surrogates. Dose delivery equations were derived for all reactors that predict T1 and MS-2 RED as a function of flow, UV-T, UV sensor readings, and microbe UV sensitivity.

"We are delighted to have achieved this important validation as it confirms our position at the forefront of UV disinfection technology," comments Aquionics President Bill Decker. "From the time we supplied some of the very first UV drinking water disinfection units in the USA in 1987, we have been actively involved in providing communities with safe, reliable UV disinfection for drinking water and this latest validation continues our long tradition of investing in the industry. We are proud to be able to offer communities the choice of using our state-of-the-art UV disinfection systems, knowing that they meet the very latest and most stringent drinking water standards. I would also like to add that Aquionics products are no longer subject to any Cryptosporidium or Giardia Patent fees for UV disinfection applications worldwide."

Aquionics is part of the Fluid Technology Division of Halma p.l.c.. Aquionics is a world leader in closed vessel UV technology for progressive, non-chemical disinfection and microbiological control.
