Holographic display presented features of new system
At WEFTEC.10 in New Orleans, Trojan Technologies revealed its new open channel wastewater UV disinfection system, the TrojanUVSigna. According to Trojan Technologies, the system is specifically designed for large-scale disinfection applications, makes conversion to UV disinfection easier, reduces total cost of ownership and simplifies maintenance. A holographic display was used to reveal the UV system and its advanced features.
“We’ve been looking forward to this day for quite some time now,” said Marvin DeVries, president of Trojan Technologies. “TrojanUVSigna incorporates advanced and innovative technology, so it’s only fitting that we reveal it in an innovative way. We’re extremely happy to see the excitement and interest surrounding TrojanUVSigna.”
Trojan incorporated its latest lamp and technology innovations into the new system. These include 1000 W TrojanUV Solo Lamp technology, the Solo Lamp Driver, a staggered, inclined lamp arrangement ActiClean chemical/mechanical sleeve cleaning and a built-in module-lifting device.
“The needs of wastewater treatment plants are evolving, and it’s imperative that UV disinfection technology does too,” said DeVries. “In the 1990’s we introduced two flagship products to the wastewater market–the TrojanUV4000Plus and the TrojanUV3000Plus. Today, these systems are operating in over 1,500 facilities around the world, treating billions of gallons of water each day. We’ve taken the best features of both of these systems, incorporated the latest TrojanUV innovations and developed the revolutionary TrojanUVSigna. We truly believe that this system will be the ideal solution for large facilities who want to cost-effectively convert from chlorine to UV disinfection.”
