Welcome to the August edition of UV-Guard Australia's company newsletter. This month we will be focusing on the improved UVG X-Series and the Colorado mine spill.

UV-Guard's X-Series

The UVG X-Series is an efficient industrial UV disinfection system able to achieve industry recommended and project specific UV dose rates at flows of up to 500 m3/hr and beyond.

The UVG X-Series has been expertly designed for:

  • Wastewater
  • Process Water, Ultra-pure Water and Drinking Water
  • Sugar Syrups (Liquid Sugar)
  • Hot and Warm Water systems
  • Dam, Rain and Storm Water

Save space

Multiple lamped systems allow for liquids with low UV Transmittance to be disinfected through thin film channels created within the reactor. This means that disinfection of total flow can be achieved through a single reactor, reducing footprint requirements and plumbing infrastructure costs.

Reduce maintenance expenditure

Key to the X-Series design is the combination of UVG LongerLife low pressure high output amalgam UV lamps with thermally stable Electronic Ballasts precisely configured to maximize efficiency and performance. UVG LongerLife UV lamps have an operating life of up to 16,000 hours, maintaining a UVC output of 90% or greater at the end of lamp life, outlasting standard UVC lamps by up to 77% with improved performance.

Maximize flexibility

The extensive range of single and multiple lamped systems with an array of options means that there is a system to meet a comprehensive range of applications. Inlet and outlet connections are customizable to suit project, customer and application requirements.

Key to the operation of the UVG X-Series is our PLC. UV-Guard's PLC provides operators with a user-friendly instrument to check system status, calibrate UV sensors, confirm UV intensity being achieved, perform automatic quartz cleaning, define system parameters and undertake fault diagnostics. Proprietary software intelligently links all features of the system to self-manage functions. The system is fully integrate-able with remote monitoring and control connection for supervisory management, this can provide alarm, status and real-time UV intensity for remote monitoring. UV-Guards PLC ensures electronic ballasts are thermally stable, optimizing service life and performance. Talk to us about custom integration requirements.

Ask the experts – ensure your system is specified correctly

A growing concern across the industry is whether UV systems are 'fit for purpose' meaning will it work on the water conditions in a potable environment or will it just handle the flow rate and not really worry about it performing correctly?

UV-Guard systems are individually specified by qualified engineers based on Project and Customer requirements using complex UV dose calculation programs. UV Transmittance (UVT) testing is provided within UV-Guard's testing laboratory to ensure that the correct UV system is specified. Reducing the risks of under or over engineering solutions cuts additional expense, by getting it right the first time.

In the News – Colorado Mine Spill

A Colorado wastewater mine spill has resulted in contamination of a large river, destroying the aquatic environment. The spill was caused by EPA contractors assessing smaller leaks when they affected the structure a dam that was holding back the concentrated lead and arsenic wastewater. SILVERTON, Colorado (AP) — It will take many years and many millions of dollars simply to manage and not even remove the toxic wastewater from an abandoned mine that unleashed a 100-mile-long torrent of heavy metals into Western rivers, experts have said.

The incident has brought to the forefront the consistent issue of Mines discharging wastewater into watercourses. More must be done in order to regulate and control wastewater discharge from mines. Innovative water treatment methods need to be developed so that mine wastewater can be regulated, reused and disposed of safely.
