Aquafine’s UV Aquaculture systems have proven unparalleled in performance for over 20 years and have provided a virtually maintenance-free value to customers worldwide.
The lifeblood of today’s aquaculture industry is the water used to incubate fish eggs and rear juvenile fish. Water abundance and purity continue to decline while disease concerns found in source waters continues to increase. This phenomenon is due in part to the increased demand for water from growing urban areas, continued pollution of our natural waters and the introduction of new, pathogenic micro-organisms to natural waters through a variety of routes: bird, animal and human activities, including ballast water discharge.
Simultaneously, increased consumption of fish due to reported Omega-3 health benefits has led to increasing demands for higher stock densities in the same hatchery footprint. This brings many challenges to a rapidly growing industry, but there are solutions available today which can help to overcome them. Increasingly, fish hatcheries and rearing facilities are evaluating ways to improve the quality of their source water; while off-setting quantity losses through implementation of re-circulating water systems. This is leading more fish hatcheries to install sophisticated water treatment systems to enhance water quality, reduce the possibility of disease outbreaks due to pathogens and balance water needs due to the lack of available water from natural sources.
Ultraviolet (UV) light disinfection systems play an important role in a complete water treatment process in aquaculture facilities. UV disinfection system designs are available in both closed pipe and open channel arrangements to provide the greatest flexibility to the hatchery. UV system design and components have evolved rapidly over time to provide some of the most reliably performing and maintenance free technology in water treatment applications.
With Aquaculture UV system designs unparalleled in performance, Aquafine is committed to providing superior quality and the latest advancements in UV technology.
