Industrial exhaust air treatment with UV

Industrial and manufacturing facilities often emit air contaminated with pollutants such as solvents, VOCs and unpleasant odors which can damage the environment and are a nuisance to those nearby.Companies face increasingly stringent regulations, local and national, limiting environmental emissions into the air.

Industrial exhaust air treatment with UV

UV light is an energy-saving and environmentally-friendly solution to eliminate odors and purify air emissions. The process needs neither chemicals nor high temperatures. In combination with natural oxygen (O2), UV light creates highly reactive radicals and ozone.

These radicals bind to organic substances such as solvents and oxidize them. The air pollutants such as odors, solvents (VOCs) and chemicals are eliminated in the oxidation process.

Odsors can be reduced by 95% if UV oxidation is combined with other methods such as electrostatic precipitation, mechanical filtration or non-thermal plasma.

Your advantages with UV light:

  • 10,000 hr operating life reduces maintenance costs
  • Low space requirements for easy retrofitting
  • Ambient temperature may be up to 176°F (80°C)
  • Lowest investment and operating costs

UV light as a solution in your application for:

  • Sewage treatment plants
  • Waste processing plants
  • Coffee roasting
  • Fish processing
  • Chemical plants
  • Paper mills
  • Oil rafineries
  • Cooking oil production
  • Bakeries
  • Meat processing
