Thanks to regular investment in Research and Development, Pool Technologie offers a range at the cutting edge of technology, eco-friendly and sustainable.
Evolution of the reactor for even more efficiency and ease of use
Eager to provide an even more ecofriendly solution, the company continues to develop its Hybride UV/Ultra Low Salt® range in 2021. These two technologies - sterilisation by UV rays and ULS® salt electrolysis - were destined to come together. Eager to provide an even more eco-friendly solution, the company continues to develop its range.
This equipment consists of an electronic cabinet and a one-piece UV reactor which contains an Ultra Low Salt® electrode to ensure persistence by salt electrolysis and a UV lamp to disinfect water by UV. The rays eliminate bacteria, fungi and viruses, while penetrating to the heart of the cells of microorganisms. Ultra Low Salt® technology requires a quantity of 0.5 g/l of salt to ensure the persistence of water disinfection, ie 7 to 10 times less than standard electrolysis. Thanks to the continuous current that travels through the electrodes and the chemical reactions that take place, the water remains both disinfected and disinfecting. The requirements of eco-friendly disinfection are respected: minimise the quantity of salt present in the pool and produce the strict minimum of chlorine necessary for the persistence of disinfection.
For the 2023 season, the manufacturer has redesigned the central organ of the device: its reactor. Numerous mechanical innovations have been provided to create an even more effective, easy-to-use solution.
The positions of the UV lamp and the ULS® electrode have been reversed to limit the destruction of chlorine by the UV rays. This arrangement facilitates the maintenance of each element of the reactor, including the electrode, which can be removed for visual inspection without draining the reactor. Similarly, the visualisation of the condition of the UV lamp is made easier by the new light well. Replacement is also easier thanks to the reactor's drainage valve. This latter is equipped with connectors that are directly compatible with standard 50 or 63 mm piping for easy installation by professionals. Self-standing, the reactor can also be anchored to the ground thanks to the perforations at its base.
Another new feature: the new software operating mode. Adjustment was initially made by percentage (UV/electrolysis ratio). Configuration is now performed by UV/electrolysis time slots. These have a minimum daily duration to ensure treatment: 15 minutes for UV treatment and 4 hours for electrolysis. The safety aspect has also been improved with a flow sensor built into the reactor outlet as standard equipment. Thus, in case of a lack of water in the reactor, the flow alarm automatically shuts down the device after a few minutes, preserving the UV lamp.
Two models of reactor are available, depending on the volume of the pool to be treated (50 and 100 m3).
Finally, for 2023, amperometric adjustment and ORP control will be available for the Poolsquad UV model, in order to regulate chlorine production to meet the needs of the pool. The device retains its Bluetooth® connectivity with the manufacturer's e-Pool® application. Available on option, it is possible to manage the entire technical room (filtration, water treatment, auxiliaries, etc) thanks to the e-Pool® Connect pool kit.
The new UV reactor that will equip the Justsalt® UV and Poolsquad® UV will be previewed on the Pool Technologie stand at Piscine Global Europe in Lyon.
