Trojan Technologies announced it will officially unveil its new lamp and driver--known as TrojanUV Solo Lamp Technology--at AWWA ACE10.
Trojan will be displaying this technology at its booth (725), along with examples of how it will be incorporated into future water treatment systems, such as the TrojanUVTorrent.
The Solo lamp is a high-efficiency lamp and is paired with the Solo lamp driver. It is no longer necessary for municipalities installing UV technology to make a choice between energy-efficiency and a small footprint, the company said. This lamp technology offers the high electrical efficiency of a low-pressure UV system, while simultaneously providing the low lamp count similar to a medium-pressure UV lamp system.
“Our customers’ needs are evolving, and so, too, is our UV technology,” said Marvin DeVries, president of Trojan Technologies. “Thanks to technology advancements like this, our future water treatment systems can be designed to provide both high UV output and high electrical efficiency--the best of both worlds. After five years of research and development, we are excited to officially launch TrojanUV Solo Lamp Technology, and are looking forward to introducing it at ACE10.”
By using fewer and more efficient lamps, the carbon footprint associated with UV treatment is reduced to less than one-third that of medium pressure UV lamp systems, according to the company. The increased efficiency of the Solo Lamp translates into a reduction in wasted energy, peak electrical loads and associated electrical infrastructure.
“Our Solo Lamp Technology will be offered for drinking water, wastewater and environmental contaminant treatment, and will form a key technology platform for future large-scale applications,” Devries said.
