A COMPARISON OF WATER TREATMENT TECHNIQUES
A BRIEF DISCUSSION OF WATER DISINFECTION TECHNOLOGIES TO CONTROL LEGIONELLA AND PSEUDOMONAS
How does the Aquadron Compare to other disinfection technologies?
The Aquadron produces a biocide called Anolyte, this has a very high and very quick kill rate, see Anolyte testing.
The concept behind the Aquadron is that all of the water in a system is treated all of the time. This can be carried out for hot water and, if needed, for cold water.
The Aquadron produces the Anolyte to a central tank, or the Anolyte is supplied in drums. A proportional dosing system is connected to the water system, this comprises an impulse flow meter to measure the water flow and the water, a dosing pump and an injection point. The water flow is monitored and the system is dosed proportionally. The dosing pumps can easily be adjusted and the system can be monitored remotely. The water is treated right through the system, including the areas beyond the thermal mixing valves that are not treated effectively by thermal disinfection.
A typical protocol for the system’s use would have a period of pipe decontamination at the start of operation. This treatment would not only clear the water of pathogens, but would also clear the taps and shower heads of pathogens and biofilm. Importantly, the treatment will also eliminate the biofilm in the piping systems that harbours the pathogens and will start to degrade the scale in the pipe network.
After the initial treatment the system will provide on-going treatment of the building’s water distribution system to achieve constant end point disinfection, verified by targeted periodic biological sampling and measurement of available anolyte at the water outlets. This continuous treatment stops recontamination by pathogens and keeps the pipe network free of biofilm and scale.
The Aquadron system and Anolyte can help you effectively and continuously manage pathogens in your water system. We are happy to provide more information and to discuss the benefits that the Aquadron and Anolyte can deliver for you.
