UV water treatment and water disinfection

Environmentally-friendly and energy-saving water treatment and water disinfection with UV: treatment of ballast water, process water, drinking water, municipal and industrial sewage and water for animal husbandry, agriculture and horticulture

UV water treatment and water disinfection

Water treatment and water disinfection with high-energy UV radiation is an environmentally-friendly method established for more than 100 years. It uses no chemicals, with no added chlorine or ozone.

Special UV lamps destroy microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses and parasites and help decompose chemicals harmful to health.

Neither smell nor taste of the water are impaired.

This UV solution is used e.g. for ballast, process and drinking water treatment, municipal and industrial sewage cleaning, water treatment for animal husbandry and agriculture and in recycling processes.

Your advantages with UV light

  • No impairment of taste and smell
  • No added chemicals
  • No environmental pollution
  • Short exposure time
  • Effective against chlorine-resistant pathogens
  • Simple handling
  • Low-maintenance method
  • Very low operating costs

We have the solution for your application

  • Ballast water treatment
  • Drinking water treatment
  • Process water treatment
    • Rinsing and cleaning processes
    • Production processes in the beverages and food industry
    • Production processes in the cosmetics, chemical and automotive industries
    • Injection water for oil production on drilling platforms
    • Processes in the semiconductor industry
  • Municipal and industrial sewage treatment
    Municipal sewage, e.g. in sewage works, and industrial waste water polluted with pharmaceutical residues and chemicals need to be treated and disinfected before being returned to the water cycle. Only this enables protection of rivers, lakes and groundwater and hence the health of us all.
  • Animal husbandry
    For the controlled breeding of fish, mussels, shellfish and plants in running or stagnant waters, the water can be treated in a cycle. This makes independent from environmental influences and also saves water.
  • Agriculture
    In farming, irrigation water is recovered primarily in greenhouses. In these closed circuits, pathogens can grow in seepage water. If that water is reused, the germs spread across the irrigation system and can infect plants and jeopardise the health of personnel. UV light disinfection ensures a safe harvest.
