Sentinel: Ultraviolet Drinking Water Disinfection System

The Sentinel systems utilize ultraviolet technologies to disinfect municipal drinking water. The varying systems have the capabilities of treating anywhere from 0.3 to 40 million gallons of water per day. Using high-intensity, medium-pressure lamp technology, they are able to achieve greater than 4 log inactivation of Cryptosporidium, a dangerous organism that is highly resistant to conventional chlorine disinfection. All Sentinel systems have undergone third-party validation under the U.S. EPA LT2 Enhanced Surface Water Treatment Rule guidelines, which is aimed at reducing illness linked with Cryptosporidium and other disease-causing microorganisms in drinking water.

Our 25+ years of UV innovation started with the introduction of an advanced oxidation process to destroy toxic compounds in groundwater and expanded to the breakthrough discovery for low-dose inactivation of Cryptosporidium, which provided the potable water industry a cost-effective method to protect public health. Through innovative research and development, Calgon Carbon UV continues to evolve to meet the ever-increasing water disinfection needs of the public and private sectors.
