International Water-Guard Industries Inc. (IWG) has announced that it has entered into a contract with Air Transat for its new Ultraviolet (UV) Water Disinfection and Electronic Water Quantity Preselect System for Commercial Aircraft, the company said.
The UV Disinfection System which has STCs from Transport Canada and the FAA uses IWG´s 30 years of experience in ultraviolet light to disinfect water as it is uploaded into the aircraft. This system ensures total passenger safety by eliminating bacteria and harmful pathogens in the water.
The Preselect system gives the airline total control of the amount of water carried at the touch of a button. The system enables the potable water tank quantity to be set in 5% increments allowing significant weight savings of hundreds of pounds per flight. It also provides data of water usage on each flight for future analysis.
