UV Water disinfection for Mining & Municipal Applications

The ability of UV to deactivate microorganisms such as E.coli, Salmonella, Vibrio, Cryptosporidium, Giardia, Enterovirus, Hepatitis and Shigella makes it the ideal choice for municipal and mining site wastewater treatment plant operators.

Additionally, UV disinfection of drinking and process water has been acknowledged around the world as a safe, effective, and inexpensive method of disinfecting water without affecting the taste or adding any chemicals to the water.

UV-Guard works with hydraulic consultants and contractors to ensure that proposed UV disinfection systems meet all project and tender specifications. UV-Guard can provide both pre-validated and non-validated UV disinfection systems.

The majority of municipal UV disinfection tender specifications provide the minimum UV dose that must be achieved by any system. If this UV dose figure is not provided, UV-Guard will establish UV dose rates required to achieve a certain treated water total coliform value.

UV-Guard provides spare parts such as UV lamps and associated products for all municipal UV disinfection systems. We also offer technical support and servicing Australia wide.
