Wastewater is the gateway to environmental pollution from any human activity. In the past, the most common method to inactivate dangerous microorganisms found in effluent and discharge was chlorine in gas or fluid form. In recent years, however increasingly more disadvantages of this method have been revealed: dangerous by-product formation (such as THMs and HAAs with others still unknown), high costs due to increasingly more required de-chlorination step, the administration that comes with it, and the danger of handling and storing toxic chemicals.
Due to all these hindrances, UV disinfection has become a preferred method, proven to be effective for secondary and tertiary treatments. It also offers a significantly lower environmental impact, design footprint, and costs. Besides, unlike chlorine, it is effective against Cryptosporidium and Giardia.
A wide selection of ULTRAAQUA UV closed vessel and open channel UV systems excel in energy and disinfection efficiency, overall cost optimization, advanced scalability and customization, ease of operation, and maintenance. Today ULTRAAQUA UV units disinfect more than 54 856 m3/h of wastewater globally. With R&D as a company’s backbone, customers are secure in getting the latest UV technology available in the market. ULTRAAQUA UV systems can also be easily integrated for direct and in-direct water re-use (aka. reclamation), Total Organic Carbon (TOC) reduction, and Advanced Oxidation Process (AOP) applications.

ULTRAAQUA UV systems deliver water security even in the most challenging wastewater treatment, such as Combined Sewer Overflow (CSO). All ULTRAAQUA UV systems can inactivate any known wastewater bacteria and viruses to meet the strictest environmental regulations. A range of UV systems designed for wastewater treatment allows for safe discharge or re-use of industrial and municipal water.
ULTRAAQUA UV system delivers water security even in the most challenging applications. Whether through standard disinfection, or Advanced Oxidation Process (AOP) – ULTRAAQUA UV can treat water for direct and in-direct water re-use applications. Depending on the application, the UV treated water can be reused for industrial processes or even as potable water.
One of the key challenges in wastewater treatment is low UV transmittance. ULTRAAQUA UV has engineered a range of UV systems specifically for this purpose enabling the inactivation of common bacteria and viruses found in different quality effluents around the world.
ULTRAAQUA UV offers our customers a wide selection of closed vessel and open channel systems for diverse wastewater applications worldwide. Combined with customization of key features, this helps to deliver the advanced level of solution suitable for each specific treatment layout.
