Ultraviolet light alters the DNA of harmful organisms without the use of chemicals, rendering pathogens unable to reproduce and cause harm. Capital Controls UV systems can be packaged with other oxidant generators for advanced oxidation process (AOP) treatment to tackle complex applications and contaminants of emerging concern.
Over 25 years ago, our experts made the initial discovery of the effectiveness of UV light for treating protozoa, including Cryptosporidum parvum and Giardia lamblia. Today, 8 billion gallons (30 billion liters) of water and wastewater are treated by Capital Controls UV disinfection systems featuring Sentinel®, Rayox® and C3 Series® reactors to support more than 30 million people worldwide, with installations in Los Angeles, Montreal, Boston, Brisbane, Singapore, and many other locations in the U.S. and around the world.
Users can rest assured that all Capital Controls UV disinfection systems have been thoroughly validated and certified. Capital Controls UV systems with Sentinel reactors have undergone third party validation under the U.S. EPA LT2 Enhanced Surface Water Treatment Rule guidelines. The Capital Controls UV systems with C3 Series reactors have passed rigorous bioassay-testing from 35 to 80% UVT using MS2 and T1 surrogates and are certified for California Title 22.
Systems are designed using advanced computational fluid dynamics for optimum performance and independent third party-certified UV intensity sensors for accurate delivery of UV dose. Safe and reliable, all systems feature automatic emergency shut-down system and robust long-life electromagnetic ballasts with superb voltage tolerance. Small footprint designs allow simple retrofit to existing plants and fully automated control system with automatic quartz sleeve provide ease of operation.
