SENTINEL® 12 Ultraviolet Drinking Water Disinfection System

Source: Calgon Carbon Corporation

UV disinfection with SENTINEL® provides a proven barrier to harmful pathogens that can be present in source water. This includes bacteria, viruses and chlorine-resistant protozoa such as Cryptosporidium and Giardia. SENTINEL disinfection is a chemical free physical process producing zero disinfection byproducts and is more cost effective than ozone or membranes.

Designed to treat flows up to 4.8 million gallons per day (15 MLD), the Sentinel 12 can effectively disinfect drinking water in small to medium-sized treatment plants. The Sentinel 12 uses mediumpressure lamp technology to achieve greater than 4 log inactivation of Cryptosporidium, Giardia, and virus in drinking water. Mediumpressure lamp technology allows the Sentinel 12 to be compact with a small footprint. This can provide a significant advantage to water treatment plants looking for a system that can be easily retrofitted into existing treatment systems.

The Sentinel 12 system features include independent, third-partycertified UV intensity sensors to assure accurate delivery of UV dose, an automatic quartz sleeve cleaning system, and a fully automated control system. The Sentinel 12 was designed using advanced computational fluid dynamics allowing for optimal lamp and baffle placement to ensure maximum reactor performance and operational efficiency. The Sentinel 12 has undergone thirdparty validation under the U.S. EPA LT2 Enhanced Surface Water Treatment Rule guidelines.
