Addressing Industry Trends in Water Purification with UVC LEDs

On Demand until September 18, 2019

Duration:60 minutes


Consumer appliances using UVC LEDs like water dispensers, smart faucets, and home beverage systems will begin hitting store shelves in 2019. This can be attributed to recent accomplishments around price, performance, and volume that support the demands of consumer water purification.

Crystal IS will share its insight on how early-mover consumer appliance designers are meeting major consumer design trends using UVC LEDs, along with current market drivers for consumer UV purification associated with design for localization, connected user experiences, and the displacement of bottled water.

  • Applications for water purification using UVC LEDs in consumer appliances
  • Overview of emerging uses for UVC LEDs in consumer appliances
  • Common product engineering challenges when integrating UVC LED-based reactors and how to overcome them
