UV Systems for Industrial Applications & Processes

Water is used at some point in almost every manufacturing process worldwide.  In many industrial applications, the use of chemicals such as chlorine or biocides is restricted for process reasons.  UV provides a highly effective, chemical free disinfection solution for a vast range of industrial applications.

Typically a single pass through a UV treatment system will provide a >4 log (99.99%) kill of microoganisms, including chlorine resistant strains such as Cyrptosporidium and Giardia. In addition, as a chemical free, physical sterilization technology, UV disinfection does not change the characteristics of the water, will not affect flavour, texture, smell or pH, and unlike chemical treatments does not leave behind any residual substances that require removal post treatment.  

In addition to providing an effective disinfection solution, UV treatment can be used to remove chlorine, chloramines, ozone, bromine and a wide variety of organic contaminants such as urea, pheonals and polyaromatic hydrocarbons from industrial process water.

This section of the website details the industrial applications for the various common industries where UV is used as an effective treatment. The applications listed here are by no means exhaustive, if a process exists that is not detailed here it is highly likely that our engineering team have experience of the process or at least the means to investigate whether UV is suitable for the application.  Please contact our Technical Sales Engineers on +44(0)1942 216161 to discuss your application.
