INDUSTRIAL WATER TREATMENT IN THAILANDView case
Water is a crucial part of any food and beverage production process, having a vital impact on the shelf life and overall quality of the final product. The microorganisms in the water have a major impact on this, which can potentially cause significant economic losses. This makes high-quality water a necessity, which must be consistently available in the production process, to ensure product reliability and quality.
The availability of a trustworthy and consistent source of water is required to provide consistent standards. This makes the utilization of UV treatment a key part of the treatment process towards ensuring ultra-pure water.
Including UV disinfection in the treatment process makes it possible to meet the strictest requirements regarding bacteria and virus protection. Additionally, the key water properties such as temperate, ph and oxygen levels remain unchanged, as well as avoiding any chemical by-products.
UV systems can also be utilized for CIP or de-chlorination processes to remove any residuals from the chlorine disinfection done previously. For applications requiring ultra-pure water for the production process, ULTRAAQUA UV TOC systems deliver excellent total organic carbon reduction results providing the highest-grade water. For extremely low transmittance environments, the ULTRAAQUA UV ULU enables disinfection of even the most complex fluids such as liquid sugar.
