COVENTRY, RI, Dec. 16, 2014 -- The County of New Castle, Del., has awarded a contract to ETS-UV by Neptune Benson -- a specialist in the development and manufacturer of ultraviolet (UV) systems, specializing in closed-vessel UV technology -- to upgrade the UV disinfection system at its wastewater facility. The upgrade will convert the existing chlorine-based system to a new, state-of-the-art closed-vessel UV system.
"We were impressed with the advances that have been made in UV technology since we installed our first UV system (open-channel UV), at one of our other facilities," said Regis Yurcich, director of facilities and maintenance for New Castle County. "The ETS closed-vessel systems are fully enclosed, use automatic wipers to keep the sleeves clean, use fewer lamps, and are both safer and simpler to use."
Ken Rodi, CEO of Neptune Benson, added, "The closed-vessel UV systems have been designed to overcome many of the issues encountered by the older open-channel technology. The state-of-the-art machines minimize operator maintenance and have UV cameras to measure the performance of the units in real time."
