TrojanUVSwift™ Selected For Beijing’s First UV Drinking Water Installation
In response to more stringent drinking water regulations and contaminant monitoring, several municipalities throughout China are beginning to installing UV as part of their multi-barrier treatment strategy. We are proud to announce that Beijing’s first UV drinking water installation – located at a plant in Pinggu District – will be operational in July 2013, and will be utilizing our TrojanUVSwift™. Flow rate is 100,000 m3/day.
TrojanUV drinking water systems are also installed at plants in many other municipalities throughout China, including Jinan, Wehai and Tianjin (the country’s first). These plants utilize a combination of chlorine in conjunction with UV in order to eliminate the risk of pathogens that are resistant to chemical forms of disinfection.
Plants choose to integrate UV – instead of additional chemical treatment methods – as part of their multi-barrier strategy because it does not form carcinogenic disinfection by-products or impact the taste and odor of the water, and is easily integrated into their existing treatment processes.
