Tianjin Drinking Water Case Study

Here are the top five UV Resources of 2013:

1. Municipal Drinking Water Disinfection Case Study for Tianjin, China
Tianjin is a metropolis located in North-East China. It is the sixth largest city in China with a total population of over 12 million people. Increasingly stringent drinking water regulations in China are requiring more frequent water quality tests and inspections for a greater number of pathogens and molecular contaminants.With no previous UV installations for drinking water disinfection in the country, one of the criteria when selecting a UV manufacturer was experience. With over 35 years of experience and thousands of installations globally for drinking water, wastewater and industrial applications, TrojanUV was selected as the supplier of UV equipment for the Tianjin facility.

5. Indirect Potable Reuse with UV-Oxidation Case Study for Big Spring, Texas
In an effort to reduce reliance on dwindling surface and groundwater supplies in Texas, the Colorado River Municipal Water District (CRMWD) constructed a new Raw Water Production Facility (RWPF) in Big Spring. Big Spring is a 27,000-member community located in West Texas approximately 300 miles west of Dallas. This RWPF treats secondary wastewater to a standard that allows it to be re-introduced directly into the raw water supply for the water treatment plants of Big Spring, Odessa, and other communities in the region.

The facility was constructed adjacent to the existing Tucson Airport Remediation Project (TARP) Plant – these treatment facilities will purify up to 8 million gallons of water a day.

Construction began on this 4,500 square-foot, state-of-the-art facility in September of 2012 and uses a TrojanUVPhox™ Environmental Contaminant Treatment (ECT) systems. The AOP technology combines ultraviolet (UV) light with hydrogen peroxide to oxidize 1,4-dioxane as well as viruses, bacteria and other contaminants from water.

The treatment facility is part of a pro-active approach on  behalf of the City of Tucson and Tucson Water to respond to the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) health advisory levels for 1,4-dioxane.
