Hall, J. Testing and Evaluation of the Solstreme™ X35 TM Portable UV Water Treatment Unit. U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Washington, DC, EPA/600/S-17/383, 2017.

Impact/Purpose:

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) Homeland Security Research Program (HSRP) identifies and tests portable water treatment technologies that can be utilized for water disinfection and decontamination operations. Optimally, the equipment should be easy to use by emergency responders, and easy to transport in a standard pick-up truck (48 by 60 inches) (English units are used throughout this report except for light intensity and dosage units). Equipment should not require a forklift for loading or off-loading. The Solstreme™ X35 ™ultraviolet (UV) germicidal water treatment unit first appeared on the market as a commercial product in 2013. The Solstreme X35 unit uses a patented microwave-actuated electrodeless lamp technology to provide UV disinfection.
