Neptune Benson® is pleased to announce that its ETS-UV technology has been selected to provide ultraviolet (UV) disinfection systems for the drinking water treatment facility upgrade in the City of Perryville, Missouri.

Coventry, RI (PRWEB) - Neptune Benson is an industry leader in water filtration and disinfection in the municipal, industrial and recreational water markets. Its ETS-UV brand is well established as a leading UV manufacturer.

The City of Perryville wanted to ensure the potable finished water was protected from the threat of Cryptosporidium, a chlorine tolerant organism. The City sought and examined competitive bids from numerous qualified UV manufacturers. The ETS-UV disinfection equipment was selected as the best value.

The City has selected two ETS-UV SX425-10 systems that have been validated by a third party for drinking water in accordance with the US EPA Design Guidance Manual and NSF/ANSI Standard 61. Each reactor will have 4 medium pressure UV lamps with automated wipers and will treat 1600 gpm. The UV systems will be placed between the intermediate clear well, below the gravity sand filters and the finished water storage tanks, on the discharge side of the low lift pumps. The flexible design of the ETS-UV system is an excellent fit and provides a low footprint for an upgrade of the kind. The control system will be installed into the outdoor filter bay area and are manufactured to NEMA 4X to withstand the unprotected environment.

Commenting on the award, Mark Brown, Director of Public Works stated, “ETS-UV was selected after careful review of numerous bidders. The equipment is built in the U.S. and Neptune Benson has proven to be very responsive throughout the tendering process”.

Ken Rodi, CEO of Neptune Benson added, “We are honored to have been selected following the rigorous scrutiny of the City and the Engineer Crawford Murphy & Tilly Consulting Engineers, Inc. We look forward to a long relationship with Perryville.”
