Burnaby, B.C. – Canature, one of the largest manufacturers of residential and commercial water treatment systems and components in China, has partnered with B.C.’s Acuva Technologies for UV-LED water treatment technology solutions.

Canature provides water treatment products and commercial drinking water systems. Acuva provides UV-LED Water Disinfection Modules under the Strike platform. The platform underwent thorough testing and detailed evaluation of Acuva’s modules, and was found to exceed Canature’s requirements for chemical-free microbial disinfection, Acuva Technologies said in a news release.

“This partnership with Acuva helps us achieve our mission Healthy Water Anytime, Anywhere! To protect the world’s water as our life source and key to health,” said Raymond Qu, vice-chairman of Canature. “UV-LED water disinfection is an incredible scientific advancement that allows us to offer a more sustainable water treatment option to protect health and environment.”

Water disinfection systems that use UV-LEDs are growing in popularity for their added efficiency and ability to enable new applications, the release said. As a result, the scope of NSF/ANSI 55 standards for Ultraviolet Treatment Systems has been expanded to include critical UV-LED system benchmarks to ensure products meet strict standards and procedures to protect public health.

“The Strike Platform of UV-LED modules for OEMs opens up new opportunities for innovative manufacturers like Canature with NSF/ANSI 55 certification for Material Safety and Structural Integrity by the International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO),” said Manoj Singh, president and chief executive officer of Acuva Technologies.
