November 14, 2019  By Ground Water Canada

Acuva Technologies of Burnaby, B.C., recently announced two new water purification systems that use the company’s technology to deliver high disinfection with low maintenance requirements.

The new Eco-NX product series offers reliable Point-of-Use UV-LED water disinfection for home, marine and RV applications. Its first release, the Eco-NX Silver, is the first PoU UV-LED system to receive NSF/ANSI 55-2019 Class B Certification, Acuva Technologies said in a press release.

The Eco-NX Silver will be available in early 2020. Its design features a more compact form factor, safely purifying water to NSF/ANSI 55-2019 Class B standards at a 1.2 LPM flow rate, and built-in instant flow-sensing activation.


NSF International recently released NSF/ANSI 55-2019 to include test protocols for LED-based systems. According to Acuva, the company played a leadership role in the development of this important update as part of the International Task Group. “This is an incredible achievement for the industry and wouldn’t have been possible without extensive effort and dedication within the community, ” said Dr. Ashkan Babaie, Acuva’s Director of Advanced Engineering.

“We are glad to see updated regulatory measures applied across the UV-LED water disinfection system industry,” said Manoj Singh, president and chief executive officer of Acuva. “Verified microbial disinfection is a critical consideration for consumer health and safety. We intend to have all our products certified to these standards going forward.”

The company also is developing a new Point-of-Entry UV-LED water disinfection system that offers flow rates from eight to 20 gallons per minute with minimal maintenance. The system will be available in mid-2020.
