Chemical-Free Disinfection

| Primary product water disinfection | Firewall replacing chlorine |
| Process water disinfection | Pasteurized equivalent water |

  • Validated to highest regulatory standards including EPA and FDA
  • Accepted by regulators as an alternative to chlorine for primary water disinfection
  • Easily inactivates microorganisms, including chlorine-resistant pathogens, pseudomonas, cryptosporidium and giardia
  • Inactivates heat-resistant spores too
  • Sustainable, cost-effective solution

Firewall

  • Municipal, and even deep ground source water, cannot guarantee water safety 24/7
  • Incoming water needs to be disinfected at the entrance to the plant to ensure product safety and prevent contaminated water from entering the production line.
  • Atlantium is accepted by regulators as an alternative to chlorine for primary water disinfection.
  • Atlantium easily inactivates microorganisms, including chlorine-resistant pathogens, pseudomonas, cryptosporidium and giardia.
  • Atlantium inactivates heat resistant spores too.

Chlorine Replacement

  • Accepted by regulators as an alternative to chlorine for primary water disinfection.
  • Sustainable and cost-effective
  • Easily inactivates  microorganisms, including chlorine-resistant pathogens, pseudomonas, cryptosporidium and giardia
  • Inactivates heat-resistant spores too
  • Sustainable, cost-effective solution

Membrane Protection

  • Atlantium inhibits biofilm grown on membranes, reducing the maintenance burden and operating costs
  • Atlantium greatly extends membrane life
  • Membrane biofouling reduces production and increases the energy needed to push the water through the membranes

Post Active Carbon

  • Carbon is a breeding ground for bacteria
  • Requires heavy maintenance to avoid costly breakthroughs
  • Atlantium unit installed immediately after the carbon filter protects against breaktkhroughs and reduces contamination-caused biofouling downstream
  • With Atlantium installed, demand for aggressive steaming is less frequent, saving water, energy and production costs.
  • Quick ROI

Process Water Disinfection

  • Atlantium provides high microbial inactivation without chemicals for use in rinse and CIP applications.
  • Atlantium achieves high log reductions
  • Atlantium is particularly effective against biofouling-causing bacteria such as pseudomonas, that also happen to be highly resistant to chlorine.

Pasteurized Equivalent Water Disinfection

  • The Atlantium  Hydro-Optic system meets US FDA criteria for pasteurized equivalent water and is verified for compliance by third party validation.
  • Atlantium is a sustainable alternative to heat pasteurization, saving energy, water and downtime costs.
  • An Atlantium unit uses 3kW per hour, while heat pasteurization uses 150kW per hour

Product Water Disinfection

  • Credited validation for 4-log virus and 5-log microbial inactivation.
  • Guarantees water biosecurity without chemicals
  • No disinfection by-products that need removal procedures
  • No residual taste or oder to affect product flavor
  • Sustainable, cost-effective solution

Ozone Destruction

  • Ozone is a strong oxidant that changes the flavor profile of bottled beverages and needs to be removed.
  • Atlantium provides an efficient, cost-effective solution for Ozone destruction.

Zero Liquid Discharge / Process Water Disinfection

  • Atlantium provides high microbial inactivation without chemicals for use in rinse and CIP applications
  • Atlantium achieves high log reductions
  • Atlantium is particularly effective against biofouling-causing bacteria such as pseudomonas, that also happen to be highly resistant to chlorine
