Achieving disinfection without the need for power, chemicals or maintenance.
Traditionally, bacteria in water supplies has been treated using a combination of chemicals (such as chlorine) and UV Light- Quantum Disinfection™ does it differently.
A breakthrough in water disinfection technology, Quantum Disinfection™ is a revolutionary, patented technology that uses quantum mechanic principles of electron movement to create surface catalytic sites. This is the first time such a technique has been used to disinfect water.
Water simply has to pass over the Quantum Disinfection™ media surface and the bacteria are instantly destroyed through a catalytic electron exchange. Disinfection can now be achieved without the need for power, chemicals or maintenance.
How does Quantum Disinfection™ work?
Quantum Disinfection™ uses semi-conductor principles of electron movement to create small “catalytic sites” on the surface of the media. These sites are powerfully charged and attract electrons. Passing bacteria in the water lose their electrons and are instantly eliminated.
No. Just like UV, Quantum Disinfection™ needs primary filtration to work properly, otherwise the charged sites can become clogged. It is disinfection media, not filtration media.
No. Quantum Disinfection™ does not leach anything in the water. All of the bactericidal action happens because of a catalytic surface action.
Yes. Quantum Disinfection™ media is component certified to NSF 42, meaning it does not leach anything into the water.
Quantum Disinfection™ needs a packed bed to ensure water contact.
Yes. Quantum Disinfection™ technology has been rigorously tested and posted excellent results by reputable laboratories. All of these results are available upon request by interested companies.
Quantum Disinfection™ works across a broad spectrum of flows and water sources. To date, the media has been tested in gravity based purifiers and at flows up to 100 lpm with success.
No. Quantum Disinfection™ is more like UV. Is it not a filter and its purpose is not to filter the water, but rather to disinfect the water.
Quantum Disinfection™ can be applied in multiple industries, but our most popular application is potable water. Typically, Quantum Disinfection™ is applied after primary filtration, just before the water delivery to ensure disinfection just before use. Other industry uses have included surface water, cooling towers, cooling oils, waste water and emergency drinking water disinfection, greenhouse and irrigation water supplies.
