TOC Reduction

Efficient in high-volume ultrapure water applications, UV systems can effectively reduce Total Organic Carbon (TOC)

Reduction of total organic compounds (or total organic carbon) is critical for a number of industries who use ultrapure water, such as microelectronics, pharmaceuticals and wastewater processing. 

Aquafine TOC systems have the flexibility to serve indoor or outdoor installations and are available in modular skid designs. Aquafine TOC reduction systems can be found the world over in critical applications where meeting stringent criteria of the cGMP and full acceptance by the FDA are mandatory.

How UV and TOC Reduction Works

Aquafine uses UV light in a 185 nm wavelength (this is more powerful than the 254 nm used in UV water disinfection applications).

This energy promotes the formation of free radicals, leading to the oxidation of organics into CO2 (carbon) and H2O (water) molecules. TOCs are destroyed and the oxidation is complete.
