AquiSense’s PearlAqua Micro first UV-C LED product certified to NSF/ANSI 55-2019 Standard

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 claimed the first NSF Component Certification to the newly updated NSF/ANSI 55-2019 Standard for its PearlAqua Micro range, certified by NSF International in compliance with the new NSF/ANSI 55 Standard for Material Safety and Structural Integrity.

With tens of thousands of units shipped this year, the PearlAqua Micro is claimed to be the smallest UV-C LED water treatment system. Manufactured to ISO-9001:2015 quality standards, the range includes five discrete model sizes offering flow rates of up to 8lpm and third-party validation disinfection performance of up to 6-log (99.9999%) pathogen reduction. The range is designed to be integrated at the point of use and offers 12VDC or 24VDC input voltage, automatic on/off control, multiple sensing/alarm options, and customizable housing options.

The NSF/ANSI 55-2019 Standard has recently been updated to address the unique technical differences of LED technology compared with traditional mercury gas-discharge lamp technology. Following very soon will be microbiological performance certification by NSF. This will provide additional verification to the already completed third-party microbiological validation completed on the PearlAqua Micro range, showing supplemental bacterial treatment of drinking water supplies. This provides a strong final barrier and ‘last-mile’ protection to many applications.

“Prior to September 2019, there was no specific standard for LED technology in water treatment applications,” notes CEO Oliver Lawal. “Our team has worked for years supporting NSF International to ensure the new 55 Standard is robust and future-proof,” he adds.
