To this day, the research and development department is the backbone of the company. A lot of resources are allocated for activities within this area, to ensure that we can support our customers with cutting-edge solutions and specialist knowledge. Doing so, we are able to constantly gather information about our products through hands-on experiences in diverse environments. The ULTRAAQUA UV research and development activities consists primarily of two areas: product optimization and development, and hands-on research of new solutions applied across a range of applications, usually in collaboration with local and international partners and institutions. In addition to ultraviolet disinfection, the research work focuses on technologies such as UV based advanced oxidation processes, ozonation, and filtration of particles (particle analysis).
ULTRAAQUA UV has dedicated an entire department of engineers with specialization in the design and construction of UV systems. With multiple years of experience in dealing with different applications in the field, the design specialists alter or adjust any standard UV system features to accommodate each case – by request or by recommendation. This greatly varies from adjustments such as reactor shape or flange size, to adding new features that are not considered as a part of our standard UV systems. This makes the ULTRAAQUA design department function as a consulting agency, especially when working with large and complex projects. To enhance the security for our clients, we have designed and installed indoor and outdoor testing facilities for closed vessel UV systems and open channel lamp banks.
All customized UV units go through integrated CFD, Fluence rate, and Particle tracing modeling analysis, as well as the physical testing facility. Lastly, the design department has comprehensive technical knowledge, making them able to assist with installation details such as weir design, water level control devices, and any other project-specific attributes.
The approach of ULTRAAQUA UV Research and Innovation department is to bring fundamental science into product and solution development. The concept of Virtual Prototyping (CFD) is used to accelerate this process. We support the commercial departments with high-level knowledge and products that are the best in the world concerning solving water-related challenges in a wide range of applications.
The ULTRAAQUA UV Research and Innovation department comprises a team of ten people with B.Sc./M.Sc./PhD level education with a complementary background in environmental technology, physical chemistry, advanced modeling, mechanical engineering, and technical design.
We have a 100m2 process and technology research laboratory equipped with a range of advanced and standard analytical equipment as well as several technology testing setups.
We are constantly involved in publicly funded national and European research programs and have a well-established collaboration with several Danish and European Universities and Knowledge Institutes.
Throughout its history, ULTRAAQUA UV has designed and expanded a laboratory to accommodate all research activities. Using the latest available equipment provides our scientists with the ability to invent, test and scale.
ULTRAAQUA UV has designed and installed two indoor and outdoor testing areas. The testing areas enable the company to successfully test and scale new and optimized products. Furthermore, they greatly elevate quality control procedures for large scale projects.
The innovation department would not be what it is today without the brightest minds of the century. The contributions of teams consisting of doctorates and diverse field experts has been key to the overall success of the company.
ULTRAAQUA UV was founded by two scientists and has since relied strongly on research and technology advancement activities. The company seeks to not only provide the best UV disinfection products, but to enhance the use of UV technology in multiple sectors.
ULTRAAQUA UV has been conducting research projects since its establishment in 1996. Over the years while actively developing commercial activities, the company further expanded its R&D department.
