Whether it's used as a supplement to a multi-step water treatment program or by itself, UV light is beginning to take a strong-hold as an effective technology in the World. As many of you know, its has been widely used in Europe for many years. With growing populations demanding quality public services, many countries-including less-developed ones-are searching for better ways to provide clean drinking water. There are many different purification methods from which to choose including filtration, chemical treatment, distillation and ultraviolet (UV) irradiation.
One inexpensive and efficient way of disinfecting the water supply is by irradiating it with UV light. It's known that UV light of wavelengths between 250 and 270 nanometers (UV-C or UVC band) is extremely effective in killing many species of bacteria, mold spores, viruses and other microorganisms. The UV light causes DNA damage to the cells of the microorganisms that leads to mutations and eventual cell death. Using UV radiation in this manner to purify water is popular among Europeans who have known about it for decades.
A few benefits of using this type of UV water purification scheme include simplicity, portability and affordability
Ozone was first used by municipalities to improve the organic qualities of water with control of taste, odor and color as well as for its germicidal action. Application of ozone in waste water treatment includes the destruction or removal of: complex organic molecules, cyanides and phenols from chemical waste, etc.. In addition, subjecting municipal waste waters or combined municipal waste waters or combined municipal industrial waste waters to a final ozone process enables reuse for applications such as wash-water, irrigation, or fire fighting systems.
Ozone is also used extensively in industry in oxidation processes and for disinfection purposes. Typical industrial examples are in the P&P industry for pulp bleaching, chemical industry where ozonolysis is necessary for the production of certain substances, and in cooling-tower systems where ozone replaces the less desirable chemical biocides.
The high oxidation potential of ozone, which is 50% higher than chlorine, has prompted many chemical and pharmaceutical companies to use ozone equipment in their manufacturing facilities.
In partnership with our suppliers, Hydor Techniki applies its knowledge in the field of ozone generation to achieve the best overall conditions (price, delivery, safety aspects) for all types of pilot or industrial plants.
