Unlike chemical approaches to water and air disinfection, UV light provides rapid, effective inactivation of microorganisms through a physical process. When bacteria, viruses and protozoa are exposed to the germicidal wavelengths of UV light, they are rendered incapable of reproducing and infecting.
Advantages in the use of UV technology for disinfection:
UV is a chemical-free process that adds nothing to the water except UV light
UV requires no transportation, storage or handling of toxic or corrosive chemicals – a safety benefit for plant operators and the surrounding community
UV treatment creates no carcinogenic disinfection by-products that could adversely affect quality of the water
UV is highly effective at inactivating a broad range of microorganisms – including chlorine-resistant pathogens like Cryptosporidium and Giardia
UV can be used (alone or in conjunction with hydrogen peroxide) to break down toxic chemical contaminants while simultaneously disinfecting
LIQUIDS: water, syrups, emulsions, brines.
SURFACES: packaging, conveyors, food, working surfaces.
GASES/AIR: food preparation, clean rooms, air conditioning.
OXIDATION: TOC reduction, ozone destruction, chlorine removal.
CATALYSIS: pesticide removal, effluent treatment, ground Recovery.
DEODORISATION: sewage and industrial emissions.
