Acuva Technologies Inc, a global supplier of UV-LED drinking water purification products for RV and other industries, has received NSF/ANSI 55 Class B Certification. According to a press release, Acuva’s Eco 1.5 UV-LED water purifier is the first to receive the industry certification for verified microbiological disinfection.

“NSF/ANSI 55 is one of the most established and trusted standards for ultraviolet (UV) microbiological water treatment systems. Eco 1.5 exceeded all of the Class B microbial disinfection requirements.” stated Ashkan Babaie, Acuva’s director of advanced engineering.

The scope of the standard also includes product material safety and structural integrity. Eco 1.5 is manufactured with high quality stainless steel, offering durability while reducing product degradation and maintenance.

“Eco 1.5 is engineered with patented technology to deliver environmentally friendly microbial disinfection without the use of mercury or chemicals. Acuva UV-LED systems also use up to 95% less energy than UV-lamps given the instant on/off point of use functionality,” said Graham Duck, Acuva vice president of engineering.

The new Eco 1.5 also has the necessary certification required by the RV Industry Association (RVIA) for OEM integration. This compact system offers easy installation into most aftermarket RVs and boats. It also installs easily under most kitchen sinks in homes and cottages and given its low energy requirements can be used off grid with solar and other green energy sources.

Acuva’s Eco 1.5 will be officially released in September. For more information about Acuva UV-LED products visit www.acuvatech.com
