Why Typhon’s UV LED Water Treatment?
An optimally efficient configuration of UV LEDs in a water treatment system that is the first to offer an alternative to the Mercury dominated UV lamps
At this time we focus on two main applications leveraging UVC LEDs:
Typhon’s USEPA UVDGM validated BIO-310 reactor is the only Municipal scale UV LED system available today. Typhon has collaborated with United Utilities to deliver the worlds largest UV LED for drinking water disinfection installation, with the capacity to treat nearly 30,000m3/day, at their Cumwhinton Water Treatment Works in Cumbria (UK).
