• Pioneers of Hydro-Optic Disinfection nominated for prestigious International Aquatech Innovation Award; will demonstrate water disinfection technology at Aquatech Amsterdam 2006.
HAR TUV, ISRAEL, Sept. 4, 2006 -- Atlantium Technologies, developers of Hydro-Optic Disinfection™ (HOD) technology, will be exhibiting at Aquatech Amsterdam 2006 at Stand 01.134. Its revolutionary HOD system has been nominated for the International Aquatech Innovation Award in recognition of its contribution to water technology.
"We are honored to be nominated for such an important award," says Ilan Wilf, Atlantium's CEO. "Our HOD heralds a whole new era in water treatment, and we are glad to be acknowledged for our innovation. Our products are 100% unique in the marketplace."
Atlantium's unique "out-of-the-water" lamp design leverages precise fiber optic and hydraulic principles to deliver a homogenous UV dose across the reactor's cross-section with no "dark-routes," which means that no microbes survive the disinfection process. This dynamic synthesis of technologies harnesses the real power of UV light photons to deliver complete sustained microbe inactivation (5-7 Log reduction) with unprecedented cost-effectiveness and reliability. The design ensures easy lamp replacement with nearly zero downtime and minimal maintenance as no fouling is created in the wet chamber due to temperature difference. Atlantium HOD solutions eliminate most of the drawbacks of traditional disinfection methods, enabling environmentally friendly primary disinfection solutions that are ideal for a wide range of municipal and industrial applications and flow rates.
With installations across Europe and the Middle East, Atlantium's system has been field-proven in several industries. Installations are in process in the United States and Mexico as well. With the prescient development of HOD, Atlantium anticipated the advent of more stringent disinfection regulations such as those recently enacted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
"Because of the efficacy of the system, HOD eliminates or reduces the need for conventional primary treatments," continues Wilf. "This serves to make Atlantium's system very cost-effective, with a rapid ROI. Because of this, clients such as Tnuva, one of the largest dairies in the world, is purchasing additional units to be deployed as a 'firewall,' protecting the plant's entire water supply from microbiological threats. Our nomination for this award demonstrates that we are garnering recognition for the remarkable results we have achieved in a relatively short period of time."
