Aquafine® UV Lamps and Sterilizer Systems

AquafineMarine Chemist Service (MCS) is an international distributor of Aquafine® UV lamps and sterilizer systems.  Aquafine® was founded in 1949 by Louis Veloz, a Westinghouse scientist and pioneer in the development of commercial UV lamps for use in air and water purification.  Later, in the early 1960’s, Aquafine® introduced the use of UV Technology to the semiconductor industry.   Now, for more than five decades, Aquafine® Corporation has helped countless water treatment users meet strict performance standards thanks to their high quality and comprehensive UV product offering.  They are the primary source of ultraviolet technology and have the largest manufacturing facility (100,000 sq. ft.) in the world for low pressure UV products.

Aquafine® UV systems have earned a solid reputation for technology that customers can trust.  By partnering with market leaders throughout the world to help meet increasingly high stringent governmental regulations, environmental concerns, and the rigorous demands of speeding progress, Aquafine® has set the world standard for industrial UV water treatment with innovation, engineering and performance.

Marine Chemist Service and Aquafine® began working together late last year.  The Aquafine® line of UV lamps and sterilizer systems compliment MCS’ decades of presence in the water industry, as well as its desire to provide environmentally-safe products.  Furthermore, Aquafine’s international recognition of exceptional quality accounts for their UV lamps and sterilizer systems being shipped to many industries around the world.  Some of the more common applications of their UV lamps and sterilizer systems include:
