The resulting strain on utility infrastructure and environmental systems is leading to a worsening of water and air quality that impacts our global communities. Continued, real-time monitoring of these resources and systems protects families from contaminated drinking water, our environmental ecosystems and can optimizes industrial processes. Many chemical compounds have a specific, predictable behavior when exposed to UV light. Their absorbance or fluorescence can be used to measure the presence and concentration of a wide variety of contaminants present in water or air.
Optan LEDs and LED-based solutions offer a compact and reliable source of UV light that provides accurate, system-wide data for water quality, ozone and process monitoring measurements.
