UV water treatment and disinfection

Environmentally-friendly and energy-saving water treatment and disinfection with UVincludes treatment of ballast water, industrial process water, drinking water, municipal sewage and water for aquaculture, agriculture and horticulture.

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

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

UV treatment does not affect the smell or taste of the water.

This UV solution is used for example for treating ship ballast water, industrial process and drinking water, municipal sewage, industrial waste, water treatment for aquaculture and agriculture, and in recycling processes.

    • Production processes in the beverage and food industries
    • Production processes in the cosmetics, chemical and automotive industries
    • Injection water for oil production on drilling platforms
    • Processes in the semiconductor industry
  • Municipal sewage and industrial waste treatment
    Municipal sewage, and industrial waste water polluted with pharmaceutical residues and chemicals need to be treated and disinfected before being returned to the natural environment. This UV treatment is necessary to protect rivers, lakes and groundwater, and hence to protect public health.
  • Aquaculture
    For the controlled farming of fish, mussels, shellfish and plants in flowing or still water, the water can be treated in a closed system cycle. This isolates the system from external environmental influences and also saves water.
  • Agriculture
    In farming, irrigation water is recycled primarily in hydroponic greenhouses. In these closed circuits, pathogens can grow in drain water. If that water is reused, the germs spread across the irrigation system and can infect plants and jeopardize the health of personnel. UV light disinfection ensures a bountiful harvest and employee safety.
