Smart Secondary Treatment
Flow Infrastructure’s main push into treatment is supported by copper-silver ionization treatment and our proprietary approach is unique in the industry. Our low voltage technology allows us to treat a larger volume of flow (larger diameter) than any of the competitors, whom would need to use multiple systems on a rack to facilitate the same coverage (not cost effective).
The use of copper-silver ionization allows Flow Infrastructure to cover off three main verticals and supply our treatment division with a standalone business model.
•In building drinking water and potable water systems
•In building HVAC systems and cooling towers
•Horticultural and agricultural industries
The copper-silver method introduces disinfectant ions that travel throughout the plumbing infrastructure and attack Legionella living downstream, embedded in biofilm within the plumbing distribution system, providing systemic disinfection. In this method, bacteria is killed, rather than merely suppressed, as is the case with alternative Legionella treatment methods.
This technology provides a controlled release of copper and silver ions into the water supply to
kill harmful waterborne pathogens. We disinfect water systems by penetrating through the wall of the bacteria, irreversibly damaging its key enzyme and consequently inactivating all traces of the bacteria. This is achieved by applying an electric current across silver and copper coated electrodes into the bacterial culture to produce nanoparticles that enhance antibiotic action at the anode. Systemically introducing these disinfectant ions in a facility water system, such as the plumbing infrastructure, inactivates Legionella and other harmful waterborne pathogens deeply embedded in the biofilm thereby improving water quality. We ensure bacteria are killed,
rather than merely suppressed, as is the case with alternative Legionella treatment methods.
Aside from being an effective method for combating Legionella, copper silver ionization is also the most environmentally friendly solution – with no harmful disinfection byproducts.
