PearlAqua Deca - PearlAqua Deca is a UV-C LED water disinfection platform designed for Point-of-Entry applications.

The Solution provides safe and clean disinfection of potable water "on demand" without the use of chemicals or mercury containing components. The basis of UV disinfection is the application of a germicidal wavelength emission (UV-C) targeting microorganism DNA which is disrupted and therefore can not replicate and hence is not able to induce illness or disease. The novelty of this solution is the utilization of compact UV-C LED technology in place of existing solutions that use mercury vapor lamps to emit the necessary germicidal wavelengths. Compact dimensions and straightforward installation means the Solution can easily be integrated into typical plumbing schemes close to the point-of-entry of a facilities water supply. Designed for intermittent flows, PearlAqua Deca only uses power when water is flowing, drastically reducing the energy needed. Beyond instant on/off, PearlAqua Deca features Dynamic Power Control, providing optimum performance across all flow rates– saving you money with a lower electric bill.
