UV Water disinfection for Wastewater Treatment

For large-scale wastewater disinfection operations, UV treatment is a safe, environmentally-friendly, and cost-effective method. More and more wastewater treatment plants are adopting this method over other, chemical-based disinfection methods, such as chlorine gas. Overall, it’s a significantly safer option for communities and plant workers alike. It also works on chlorine-resistant protozoa such as Giardia and Cryptosporidium; making it a comprehensive solution.

UV wastewater treatment solutions will effectively destroy virtually all harmful microorganisms such as E.coli, Salmonella, Giardia, and many more, making it ideal for wastewater discharge treatment. If left untreated, some of these dangerous pathogens could find their way into rivers and maybe drinking water supplies, so it’s essential you take the necessary steps to ensure safe, clean water. The process doesn’t create any carcinogenic by-products either, and has no negative effect on aquatic life and the environment.

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 have a comprehensive range of small and large UV disinfection systems for wastewater. We can provide non-validated Australian WaterMark certified systems. Additionally, our partnerships around the world allows us to offer a range of validated UV wastewater systems. Depending on the project requirements, USEPA, ONORM and DVGW validated systems can be provided.

UV-Guard provides a wide range of spare parts such as UV lamps and associated products for all municipal UV wastewater disinfection systems. We also offer maintenance expertise and technical support, so should you require us to service your wastewater treatment UV system, speak to one of our staff today.
