Ultraviolet (UV) radiation is a powerful catalyst for many important germicidal functions, eradicating bacteria, viruses and fungi from air and water. UV water treatment is used for many purposes, protecting aqua life and the human inhabitants of cities and towns. UV water treatment is gaining popularity as the UV germicidal effectiveness is gaining awareness in many industries, including drinking water, aquaculture, shipping industry, water reclamation, and waste water.
Water for Consumption
UVC germicidal technology is extremely effective at eradicating bacteria and parasites that cause illness, ensuring safety for human consumption in public water systems. Treating drinking water with UV germicidal technology is advantageous over other methods such as chemical use by eliminating harmful pathogens without hazardous residue.
UV treatment systems provide effective results with very low-maintenance. LightSources provides long lasting high-performance UV lamps for no hassle long life performance.
The health and well-being of marine life is vital to the continual sustainability of our planet’s oceans. UV disinfection of fish farms and hatcheries promotes a successful endeavor of maintaining our natural fish and wildlife. UV water treatment systems are used in aquariums, hatcheries and water preserves.
UV Water Treatment in Ships Ballast Water
With global trade continuing to increase, the United Nations recognized a need for an update to the Ballast Water Convention, which regulates ships ballast water in international waters. Contaminated ballast water is seen as one of the greatest threats to the world’s oceans.
UV treatment in ships’ ballast water treatment systems provides effective germicidal treatment eliminating harmful marine organisms that may invade foreign waters. LightSources provides standard and customized UV germicidal lamps for ballast water treatment systems, adhering to United States Coast Guard and the Ballast Water Convention guidelines.
Water Reclamation and Wastewater Treatment
UV germicidal treatment cleans wastewater from human use, eliminating pollutants before entering natural water sources. UV wastewater treatment systems are effectively utilized in community systems such as well water, rural water in villages and towns, cities, ranches and farms.
UV water purification provides an effective and cost-efficient germicidal application, with no harmful chemical residue and minimal maintenance.
