    Water purification

    Water purification
    UV systems can be used to disinfect water in a wide variety of applications including drinking water, wastewater, process water, swimming pools and ponds. UV lamps are available in wattages from 4W up to 1000W, allowing you to design disinfection systems for small (liters/min) up to very large municipal installations that use several hundred lamps.

    Residential equipment

    Households can purify their drinking water by installing UV water purification systems at the point of entry in the home, at the point of use (such as kitchen sink) or via separate purifiers. Rainwater can also be disinfected before use. These UV systems are often combined with filters to remove other substances from the water (chlorine, particles). Lamp wattages up to 25W are used.

    Municipal installations

    In municipal installations, UV is always used in combination with other purification technologies. Disinfection levels are regulated by the government and our UV systems are designed, validated and installed to guarantee water quality. Most installations allow lamp dimming to adapt the power to variations in water quality and water flow. Lamp wattages up to 1000W.

    Industrial applications

    Industrial applications image
    Industries require clean and disinfected water for many purposes – production processes (automotive, chemistry, cosmetics), rinsing and cleaning packaging material for food and beverages, agriculture in greenhouses, and advanced oxidation processes for the semiconductor industry. In all these industries water is used, recycled, and re-used. Typical lamp wattages range from 25W to 250W.
