UV Technology Provides Effective Ballast Water Treatment

post 110

New requirements under the Ballast Water Treatment Convention took place last September of 2017 with all ships required to have effective treatment systems on board.  When ships are transporting freight through international waters, they must use ballast water to balance their vessel by picking up water in one port when low on freight and discharging in another port when picking up freight.  This use of ballast water has been identified as one of the greatest threats to the world’s oceans.

When ships pick up sea water they also pick up all the ocean life with it which includes microorganisms, viruses and bacteria.  The problem occurs when this water is released into a new, foreign environment which may not be prepared to control the new invading species.  Cases of invading mussels have practically shut down dams and ports when multiplying and attaching themselves to structures, invading jellyfish have all but destroyed fishing industries making ghost towns out of once thriving fishing ports. 

Due to these very real threats which jeopardize the sustainability of the planet’s oceans, the Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC) which is a subsidiary of the International Maritime Organization (IMO) began enforcing new standards for ships’ treatment of ballast water which must meet U.S. Coast Guard approval.

UV Germicidal Lamps Provide Effective Ballast Water Treatment

Ultraviolet (UV) light technology is proven to be highly effective at sterilizing water, air and surfaces.  With just seconds of exposure to UV radiation at the optimum wavelength of 254 nanometer (nm), viruses and bacteria are instantly eliminated.  UV germicidal lamps provide effective ballast water treatment methods which are completely safe for human exposure.  UV ballast water treatment provides effective results with U.S. Coast Guard approved methods, are safer than chemical treatment methods as there is no release of chemicals back into the water as with chemical treatment systems.

LightSources Offers UV Lamps for Ballast Water Treatment

LightSources offers UVC germicidal lamps which safely and effective treat ballast water in ships, meeting U.S. Coast Guard approval.  UV treatment of ballast water is safe, effective, and cost-efficient with low maintenance.  Long-lasting UV germicidal lamps from LightSources add value to any germicidal application with high performance and long life.

UV Air Purification for Industrial Processes

post 85

Businesses around the globe are searching for the most effective and affordable method to purify the air during their commercial and industrial processes.  Many industrial applications create contaminants, pollutants, volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and odor during their processes.  These pollutants pose a real health threat to employees and visitors in the workplace as well polluting the air when emitting these contaminants into the atmosphere.

Industrial processes such as plastics and rubber manufacturing generate volatile compounds that contaminate the air.  Sewage treatment plants require powerful sterilization and purification methods to sterilize water and purify the air to remove contaminants and odor.  Industrial processes emitting exhaust from solvents and a wide variety of applications all benefit from sterilizing and purifying water and air.  UV radiation is proven to be safe, highly effective and affordable.

UVC Germicidal Air Purification Safe and Effective 

UVC germicidal lamps are proven to be safe and effective at sterilizing and purifying the air we breathe in a multitude of industrial processes.  UVC radiation instantly eliminates bacteria and viruses in air, water and on surface with just seconds of exposure.  UV light is broken into colors, and measured in wavelengths by nanometers (nm), with 254nm of the UVC band proven to quickly eradicate harmful microorganisms.

UVC light at 254nm instantly destroys the DNA of these harmful cells, rendering them harmless and unable to replicate.  UVC radiation at 185 nm is required to produce ozone which is proven to remove VOCs from the air and quickly eliminate all odors.  While UV radiation is a powerful sanitizer, it is completely safe for human exposure, and a much better alternative than using chemicals for sterilization as there is no need to purchase, store or dispose of hazardous chemicals.
