Stronger Together

We are Engaged  |  We are Leaders

International Water-Guard strongly believes that people are the driving force behind its success. IWG-members and its basic principles (values) are a constant companion and help us to be stronger especially in the current times.


Today we are:

Engaged: We are driven to do our best and Continually improved.

Leaders:  We all lead by example; responsibly and with a genuine passion for what we do.


On May 12, 2020, our Director of Quality and Technical Projects Manager, Kris Ramachandran, with IWG’s full support, made an important donation to two major hospitals within our amazing community of Surrey. 

1. Peace Arch hospital: We donated 21 boxes of Cliff Energy Bars which were received by Jennifer. Kindly thanking us for the contribution.

2. Surrey Hospital:  We were received by Jane Adams (President and CEO of Surrey Hospital Foundation) and the Director of Charitable and Legacy gifts. – to whom we delivered the vast majority of our 56 boxes of Cliff bars to help support their Night Shift nurses who no longer have a cafeteria to eat at and so they provide food baskets to their 24 staff rooms every night. The good news is that they showed Kris their boardroom filled with mostly pop and water. There were not any real solids that they had donations for and so our energy bars would indeed go a long way and they were delighted.

Pictures were taken and they were kind enough to give us a nice letter and a memento. Jane and Yolanda were very interested in our company and surprised and happy to know that we did UV related water disinfection treatment units. Time will tell when a nice opportunity for us could be to invite them over to our facility.

Last but not the least, although it was not planned, our donation was great timing as it was International Nurses Day.

Big thank you to IWG for its constant support and to all IWG-members who kindly help in the preparation of these boxes proven once more that we are stronger together.


UVL1 a real game-changer for the aerospace industry.

Showing what is next! IWG revolutionizing water consumption

Today’s reality demands a new set of parameters and guidelines.

For the aerospace industry, global hygiene standards will be the new starting point and the right way to keep moving forward.

With 30 years of experience and a wide selection of effective and reliable products IWG is leading the industry and facing new realities with absolute confidence.

What is next for passengers? simple, effective, and reliable technology. Featuring our powerful IWG-UVL1. A powerful unit that emits ultraviolet energy within the UV-C spectrum using LED lights.

The unit disinfects 99.99% of the water from viruses and bacteria without the use of chemicals protecting passengers/crew and the aircraft. All pathogens that may be in the water supply will absorb the UV light, making them unable to reproduce scrambling of the genetic code in the nucleus. As a result, drinkable disinfected water. The best part of it all, the unit is installed just right before the spigot of a faucet minimizing any chance of contamination between the waterline and passenger.

Climate Action  | Earth Day 50Th anniversary

As we celebrate the 50th anniversary of Earth day, our planet is taking a pause.

In these extraordinary times, people and businesses are in the process of adapting and changing, and with this new pattern of behaviour, we are creating a visible impact on the environment.

We have witnessed how our emissions have dropped, smog has significantly reduced, and even, in some cases, how nature delightfully showed up and spread rapidly without boundaries and/or restrictions.

This is the moment of understanding the importance of coexisting with nature. We have the power to shape global health, and our success will be measured by how we will manage this power to develop solutions and forge tomorrow’s path for future generations.

International Water-Guard’s commitment to the future provides immediate solutions to these immediate challenges with powerful water disinfection units such as IWG-UVL1 eliminating 99.99% of bacteria and viruses and contributing to eradicate the use and disposal of bottled water, or our electronic Water Quantity Pre-Select System which will save weight, reduce fuel burn, and cut down carbon emissions from commercial aircraft. Let us help you shift towards a more sustainable world. Let us help you lead the industry!#iwg #earthday2020


UVC-LED and its role against COVID-19

Here is an article on one of the many avenues to consider in the Aviation industry’s battle to combat COVID-19. UV disinfection of water.

As we collectively embark on a new quest to make air travel healthier for our passengers, with efforts to maintain a sterile cabin, social distancing on flights, and increased screening of passengers for potential symptoms, a key component to include in our risk assessment is Potable Water.

Be it at Airport water fountains, water used on-board for coffee, or water served to passengers to keep them hydrated, it is imperative that we be cognizant that water must be disinfected at the Point Of Use ( POU), as it is the last contact point right before consumption.

UV-C radiations from LEDs at a wavelength of 260-270 nm work by inactivating the DNA of the virus rendering them futile to further proliferation and consequently eliminate the potential for human infections. The most pivotal potential of UV-Cs is their proven efficacy in disabling other strains of Coronavirus including MERS and SARS.

IWG is introducing, the IWG Passenger Water Dispenser (PWD) aimed at eliminating contamination at touch points while keeping passengers hydrated with water disinfected by UV-C LEDs at Point Of Use.
