Nikkiso Group company AquiSense Technologies LLC of Erlanger, KY, USA (which designs and manufactures water, air and surface disinfection systems based on UV-C LEDs) has announced a price reduction to its PearlAqua and PearlAqua OEM models.

Since its introduction in 2012, the PearlAqua has been AquiSense’s flagship product, using UV-C LEDs to reduce pathogens by up to 99.99%. It is claimed that the PearlAqua was a first-to-market product in this sector and has been the benchmark for price/performance evaluations of all other products since. Also, its patent-pending replaceable UVinaire lamp module provides true plug-and-play operation.

AquiSense says that the price reduction makes its systems more cost effective, bringing pricing in line with conventional mercury-based UV systems. “Early adopters of our systems were attracted by the unique benefits of UV-C LEDs and the slick design, meaning they were deployed in places where traditional mercury-based systems could not be utilized,” says CEO Oliver Lawal. “A price reduction further enhances an already compelling value proposition and will lead to further market penetration of UV-C LED technologies,” he reckons.

The price reduction was made possible by a variety of factors including increasing purchasing power with suppliers and the establishment of new automation in AquiSense’s manufacturing facilities. Since launching the PearlAqua, both the UV-C LED device market and the PearlAqua design have progressed. “We have benefited from our first-mover status in developing product refinements and greater production volumes,” says Wes Morin, VP operations.
