Boeing® 787 Dreamliner® Relies On Canadian Water Purification Technology For Point Of Entry TreatmentSource: UV Pure Technologies
Following a global search for the most advanced UV water purification technology available, Zodiac Aerospace’s Monogram Systems division signed a technology licensing agreement with UV Pure Technologies of Toronto for exclusive use of UV Pure’s patented Crossfire Technology in aerospace applications. The device will debut on the Boeing 787 Dreamliner.
“We are honored that Monogram has chosen our advanced UV technology to provide safe water on board the Dreamliner the new 21st century standard for airliners,” said Rick VanSant, CEO, UV Pure Technologies. “The same Crossfire Technology that will purify the water on board Boeing’s 787 is incorporated in all of our UV systems, in over 9000 applications globally. It represents significant engineering and performance advances for UV based water purification systems. We think it. is a perfect fit for Monogram and Boeing.”
As recently as last October (2010), the US Environmental Protection Agency published updated Final Drinking Water Rules for water safety standards on commercial aircraft to help ensure that safe and reliable drinking water is provided to aircraft passengers and crew. The rule requires multiple- barrier protection through standards for coliform sampling, best management practices, corrective action, public notification, monitoring and operator training. It will better protect the public from illnesses caused by microbiological contamination.
