Applications for UV Technology
Ultraviolet (UV) is effective with many uses in multiple segment markets
Primary Advantages of UV
Ultraviolet (UV) light is a versatile, reliable, chemical-free approach to address numerous requirements in industrial water treatment – pre-treatment, process water and wastewater.
- Environmentally-friendly - UV disinfection does not ‘add’ anything to the water stream such as undesirable color, odor, chemicals, taste or flavor, nor does it generate harmful by-products. It only imparts energy to the water stream.
- User friendly and safe – for operators.
- Cost-Effective and compact – requires less space than other methods. UV sysems have small footprints and they can be key components of water treatment process trains
UV Applications in Water Treatment
The most common application of UV in water treatment is disinfection, but UV is also used for the folowing applications in water treatment.
- UV Disinfection - Considered to be the primary mechanism for the inactivation/destruction of waterborne pathogens. UV disinfection effectively inactivates pathogenic bacteria, spores, viruses and protozoa (including Cryptosporidium oocysts and Giardiacysts).
- Chlorine and Chloramine Destruction - UV Technology can effectively eliminate residual chlorine and chloramine present in water.
- Ozone Destruction - Aquafine ozone destruction units add UV energy to ozone, catalyzing the ozone into harmless oxygen. Commonly used in the pre-treatment area of a water systems as well as for sanitizing and recalculating systems.
- TOC (Total Organic Carbon) Reduction - For effective reduction of organics.
Established in 1949, Aquafine is recognized as one of the largest ultraviolet equipment manufacturers in the world.
With over 150,0000 installations worldwide, we recognize that water impurities, compliance to state, federal and international regulations, and equipment reliability are often the most important factors, and we work with our customers to create a strategic partnership.
