UV disinfection process

Germs in water, in the air and on surfaces are troubling. Intensive UV light effectively and quickly reduces microorganisms.

  • Do you wish to have clean drinking water?
  • Do you need to treat exhaust air?
  • Do you need to sterilize food packaging?
  • Do you need to keep the air in public areas clean?

Efficient UV desinfection solutions can do this. See how it works!

How does UV disinfection work?

UV disinfection is effective at wavelengths from 200 nm to 300 nm. The UVC radiation emitted has a strong bactericidal effect. It is absorbed by the DNA, destroys its structure and inactivates living cells.
Microorganisms such as viruses, bacteria, yeasts and fungi are rendered harmless within seconds by UV radiation.
If the irradiance is high enough, UV disinfection is a reliable and environmentally-friendly method eliminating the need for chemicals. Moreover, the microorganisms cannot become resistant to UV radiation.

Your advantages

  • Kills bacteria, viruses and yeasts within seconds
  • Taste or smell are not affected
  • No formation of by-products hazardous to health (e.g. no THM formed)
  • No added chemicals
  • Low-maintenance method and simple handling
  • Low operating costs
  • Highest level of operational reliability
