Erlanger, Ky. (August 6, 2012) – Aquionics UV disinfection equipment has helped the U.S. National Whitewater Center (USNWC) in Charlotte, North Carolina, promote safe training conditions for the 2012 U.S. Slalom Canoe and Kayak Team.

The U.S. National Whitewater Center, the training facility for the 2012 U.S. Team, is the world’s largest man-made whitewater river designed with a recirculating water supply. In 2006, it was mandated by the state of North Carolina to provide some type of barrier against pathogens in the water that might come into contact with team members. The USNWC evaluated disinfection products, including chemical disinfectants. The Aquionics system was selected based on its small footprint, easy installation and low maintenance costs.

The USNWC purchased an InLine 18000+ UV disinfection system. Water passing through the Inline 18000+ is exposed to UV light from 18 medium pressure amalgam lamps, which eliminate microorganisms on a cellular level. The system has 20” inlet/ outlet flanges and is equipped with an automatic quartz sleeve cleaning system and UV intensity sensor to ensure proper UV dosage.

“Aquionics’ InLine system helps us maintain a safe training environment without maintenance,” said Jeff Wise, Executive Director of the USNWC.
