Applications of UV Disinfection
While UV disinfection is well known for being used in water treatment and UV disinfection systems. We push the limits of the technology to provide UV surface and air disinfection as well.
While traditional, UV water disinfection makes up around 50% of our business here at UVO3, the other 50% is focused on providing – often bespoke – UV disinfection solutions, to deal with a great number of commercial and industrial problems. Whether it be mould issues in a bread factory or bacteria mitigation on a bottling plant, UVO3 have a UV disinfection solution for you.
What is UV disinfection?
UV water disinfection is a commonly used water treatment technology that leaves no taint, chemicals or residues in the water. Treating water using UV light disinfection is quick and clean. No bacteria, viruses or moulds are immune to the power of UV. UVO3 offer a variety of UV water treatment options to deal with any flow rate, from small houses right up to small rivers.
UV disinfection systems, also called ‘UV sterilisers’ or ‘UV water filters’, comprise of a stainless steel reactor chamber housing, UV lamp or lamps and the protective quartz sleeves that the lamps sit in. We supply all of these parts for a host of UV disinfection systems. The lamps are tailored to emit UV at 254 nm, which is quite lethal to DNA contained in the cells of the organisms. UV light disinfects water, air and surfaces by breaking and modifying the bacteria’s DNA chain, therefore stopping it from reproducing and effectively, killing it.
