Get Compliant to New Ballast Water Treatment Convention

post 110

With the new requirements of the Ballast Water Treatment Convention (BWTC) nearing this September, shipping companies are scrambling to becoming compliant.  The Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC), a division of the International Maritime Organization (IMO), is enforcing this global effort to keep our planet’s oceans safe and sustainable.  Ballast water contamination is recognized as one of the top 5 threats to the sustainability of our global ocean water, threatening our very survival.

Ballast Water is Global Threat to Oceans

Ballast water is used in ships for balance when sailing through the oceans, taking ocean water into their ballast for balance when sailing with a light load after releasing cargo.  The problem arises when this oceanic water, from around the globe, is released in another port, thus contaminating the marine life in a completely foreign oceanic ecosystem.

Invasion of foreign marine life has wreaked havoc in shipping ports around the world, where invaders are released with no natural predators in place to control them.  Mussels have attached to dams and bridges, shutting down vital water purification systems, jellyfish have multiplied to unsafe levels, and in some cases toxic algae has caused death to native marine life and threatened the health of human inhabitants as well.

UV Treatment Compliant and Effective

Ultraviolet (UV) radiation is proven safe and effective for the treatment of ships ballast water, providing compliance to the new standards set forth in the BWTC.  UV germicidal lamps are effective and cost-efficient, requiring little maintenance and replacement costs, and no requirements for purchasing or storing chemicals.  UV ballast water treatment systems provide a small footprint, saving space on already tight quarters.

LightSources Provides High Performance UV Germicidal Lamps

UV treatment for ballast water is recognized as a powerful sterilization and purification method, eradicating harmful contaminants and organisms from water including bacteria, viruses and micro-organisms.  LightSources provides highly effective UV treatment with long lasting proprietary technology utilizing in our Low-Pressure (LP) Amalgam lamps, and Medium Pressure UV (MPUV) lamps.

We have standard lamps or can customize a solution for your needs with our team of highly skilled design engineers and UV radiation experts.

In-Duct Air Purification Systems Give Health Advantages


There are many health advantages when using in-duct air purification systems, which are common in many settings purifying the air we breathe.   Air duct purification systems are widely used in commercial settings where public visitors may frequent, and the building owner has a responsibility to all occupants regarding the health and safety of the environment.  HVAC air sterilization is common in nursing homes, hospitals, and doctor offices, enhancing the quality of air for all visitors and patients.

UVC Technology Proven Highly Effective and Safe

Ultraviolet (UV) light is widely used in many sterilization and purification applications including air and water, as UV radiation is extremely effective at eradicating bacteria and viruses, even airborne contaminants, without any harmful chemicals or side effects.

When air is exposed to UVC light at 254nanomemter (nm), the UVC light instantly kills harmful organisms, stopping them dead in their tracks from multiplying or reproducing, eliminating any health hazard.   UV purification of air through in-duct UV purification systems can also eliminate unpleasant odors from the air, as odors are caused by contaminants in the air.

UV light is an effective sanitizer, while not contributing to the erosion of your cooling or AC system.  Some ozone emitting purification systems may contribute to the corrosion of equipment, but UVC light will not pose such risks, and provides safe purification with no harmful side effects or drawbacks.

In Duct Air Purification Systems Provide Numerous Health Benefits

post 85

There are many health benefits to in-duct air purification systems which are widely used in many settings.  Cleaning and purifying the air we breathe is advantageous to all of us, and especially important to those with asthma, respiratory conditions, or a compromised immune system.   HVAC air purification systems are widely used in hospitals, nursing homes, and other buildings, both commercial and residential, utilizing the power of ultraviolet light to provide clean and safe air for all occupants.

UVC Air Purification is Safe and Effective

Ultraviolet light has many useful applications in sterilization and purification of air, water and surfaces at specific wavelengths.   We can harness the power of UVC light to eradicate bacteria and viruses, sterilizing equipment used in the medical and dental industry, and cleaning and purifying the air we breathe creating a safe and clean environment.    UV light emitted at the very specific wavelength of 254 nanometers is extremely effective at instantly killing harmful contaminants, while not producing any harmful side effects.   UV air purification can even eliminate odors caused by contaminants leaving clean, pure and odor free air.

In-duct UV air purification is safe and very effective, and at the correct wavelength does not emit ozone like some air purification systems could.  Unnecessary ozone emissions may contribute to the eroding of your HVAC equipment, corroding the cooling system of the AC equipment as it separates aluminum fins from copper lines in the cooling coils.

post 97

UV technology is a process used in various applications. Ultraviolet light has several qualities at various wavelengths, and many industries are harnessing the power of UV lamps creating better products with cost effective methods.

UV Curing Used in Automaker’s Processes

Automotive manufacturers realize the benefit of using UV curing to treat polymers such as varnishes, inks and specialty resins. When treating their products, various automotive parts, a photochemical process occurs that creates tougher, more stain resistant parts with a hardened or glossy finish.

Using UV lamps provides automakers with an advantage of curing many parts at one time. Parts can be moving from one area to another on a conveyor while simply curing their product before the next process.   This is a seamless and very low labor intensive process, thus saving money.

UV Curing Lamps Used in Printing Processes

UV light can instantly dry and harden inks on various paper products including corrugated materials, providing a smooth glossy surface. This method of curing printing products provided added benefits over heat induced infrared drying by instantly drying inks which prevents them from shrinking, or having an uneven finish.

UV Lamps for Sterilization of Medication Equipment

UV radiation provides effective germicidal treatment of medical equipment including syringes, dialysis machines and equipment, test strips, hearing aids and many other products, devices and surfaces.

UV Treatment of Air and Water
