Ultraviolet Disinfection

Ultraviolet Disinfection (UV) is a physical and 100% chemical free disinfection technology that does not produce any disinfection by-products. UV-lamps or -reactors mainly emit UV-C radiation with wave-lengths between 240 to 280nm. This radiation initiates a photochemical reaction that destroys the reproductive capability of microorganism like bacterias and viruses. UV-disinfection is more effective against viruses than chlorine. Even parasites, which are extremely resistant to chemical disinfectants, are efficiently reduced. An UV-intensity of 400 J/m² is needed for an efficient deactivation (99,99%) of pathogenic microorganisms.

UV Disinfection is economic, extremely effective and has lowest energy consumption. It is state of the art technology and used in municipal water treatment plants all over the world.
