UV Technology can effectively eliminate residual chlorine and chloramine present in water.
Aquafine pioneered the technology of chlorine and chloramine destruction utilizing ultraviolet light. While the addition of chlorine and chloramines to water may control bacteria levels – they also have undesirable effects such as generating carcinogenic by-products, changes in water chemistry, and unfavorable taste.
Popular methods of removal such as carbon beds or chemical injections have significant inherent drawbacks. Carbon beds are excellent breeding grounds for bacteria to thrive and proliferate. Chemical additions like metabisulfite, involve removing one chemical with another and is therefore undesirable. Neither is a simple or safe solution. UV Technology can effectively eliminate residual chlorine and chloramine present in water.
As an alternative to the use of chemicals and activated carbon beds, UV technology can be utilized to safely destroy chlorine and chloramines present in water.
UV Technology on Chlorine Removal
Research studies supported by Aquafine have demonstrated conclusively that free chlorine residuals or chloramine residuals up to 2.0 ppm can be successfully destroyed by the application of UV light.
With decades of experience in the Microelectronics, Life Sciences and Food & Beverage industries, Aquafine has a well-rounded understanding of the design and construction of water systems for these applications, as well as in unique applications such as Aquaculture, cooling towers, and power generation systems.
