UV process water disinfection for industrial applications

Many industries require clean, disinfected water for various purposes such as rinsing and cleaning, sample analysis, and production processes in the food and beverage, cosmetics, pharmaceutical, chemical, semiconductor and other industries.

Water treatment with high-energy UV radiation is an established eco-friendly method that does not require the addition of chemicals such as chlorine or ozone. Special UV lamps not only destroy microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses, parasites and fungi, but can also break down organic chemicals which are detrimental to health.

Even chlorine-resistant pathogens, such as cryptosporidium are inactivated with UV light. For ultrapure water (UPW) applications which require especially high-purity water, UV light is typically used in conjunction with other contaminant filtering or process methods.

Your advantages with UV light

  • No detrimental taste or smell
