Advanced Oxidation PLUS for Water Treatment
Puralytics has developed a next generation advanced oxidation process, AOP PLUS, using light energy to activate an advanced nanotechnology coated mesh. Water is purified through simultaneous photochemical reactions, creating hydroxyl radicals and destroying emerging contaminants such as volatile organic chemicals, pesticides, pharmaceuticals; while also sterilizing bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens. There are no chemical additives and 100% of the water is purified. Puralytics® products using the AOP PLUS technology, SolarBag and Shield, set new standards for sustainability, ease of use and cost effectiveness.
Destroying Contaminants with Light
“Photocatalysis for advanced oxidation, the core patented technology”
Puralytics’ ® core technologies are advanced oxidation process (AOP) reactors using a proprietary catalyst material and light energy to generate hydroxyl radicals to purify water. The nanomaterial is not consumed or broken down, minimizing chemicals and eliminating water waste associated with traditional chemical and physical water treatment technologies. Contaminants are destroyed instead of concentrated, minimizing the disposal problems associated with traditional water treatment technologies. Conventional AOP technology was only developed four decades ago but is already widely used for destroying contaminants. The Puralytics version using photochemical oxidation, generates powerful hydroxyl radicals which are established to:
Destroy volatile organic chemicals
Destroy pesticides, pharmaceuticals and other chemicals
Destroy or inactivate pathogens
Advanced Oxidation PLUS is:
SIMPLE - Without the complexity of other AOPs- chemical feed, pressurized ozone or hydrogen peroxide
SCALABLE- Other AOPs are not simple or inexpensive systems.
SAFE- UVA Wavelengths used are safe and aoidd bromate and nitrite formation
SUSTAINABLE- No Mercury UV lamps to replace (or break) each year
SECURE- No chemicals needed, simple cartridge replacement
The AOP PLUS also delivers additional oxidative power created through the nano particle photocatalytic reaction used in the Puralytics AOP PLUS process. This higher level oxidative energy degrades additional hard to remove pollutants and contaminants which other AOPs and granular activated carbon cannot remove and can be used in to meet difficult to achieve regulatory or compliance standards for a wide range of pollutants.
Puralytics’® products set a new standard for simplicity, sustainability, ease of operation, use and cost-effectiveness.
The light and nanomaterial combine 5 photochemical processes delivering: disinfection, trapping of heavy metals through adsorption, breaking apart organic contaminants. Puralytics treatment modules or stand-alone systems are scalable in treatment level and in flow, from millions of gallons per day to less than 1 gallon per minute.
Advanced Disinfection and Detoxification
The Puralytics Processes are very effective at removing a wide range of contaminants from water. Here are some example contaminants that Puralytics Processes can break down or inactivate:
