Aquionics Launches ‘OpenLine’ Open Channel UV Wastewater Disinfection Systems
-New system is 100% pre-engineered for wastewater applications-

Erlanger, Kentucky (October 26, 2009) – UV disinfection specialist Aquionics ( launched its new OpenLine range of open channel UV wastewater treatment systems at this year's WEFTEC exhibition in Orlando, Florida.

100% pre-engineered for wastewater applications, the OpenLine is specifically designed to treat secondary wastewater flows of up to two and a half million gallons per day (1,736 gallons/minute) and over a wide range of UV transmittances. It utilizes a new type of low pressure, high output (LPHO) amalgam lamp that offers a stable output over its entire operating life of up to 14,000 hours.

The OpenLine’s flexible, modular design means simple installation and maintenance, making it the ideal open channel UV system for municipalities with low flow requirements. Inspired by Aquionics’ successful InLine+ Series of closed vessel UV systems, the OpenLine is the first ‘plug-and-play’ open channel UV system available on the market. Installation is straightforward: the unit is simply placed on a flat surface, the inlet and outlet piping is connected, and it is ready to use. The totally self-contained unit negates the need to install lamp wires through conduits or connect chemical feed systems.

Automatic, long-life Viton wipers, powered by a self-contained air compressor, keep the quartz sleeves surrounding the UV lamps clean, ensuring optimum UV output at all times, and wiper frequency is easily adjustable. The system’s ballasts have a variable output between 50-100% and are easily accessible. In addition, the interface of the PLC control system can be customized by the user to suit their requirements. Lamp replacement and other routine maintenance is also straightforward and can usually be carried out by on-site staff.
