  • Stopping the spread of viruses in aquaculture research facility

    The aquaculture facility had multiple research stations all independently researching different fish species at the same time, and each one of these stations required its own UV system to treat the water entering that specific area. Additionally, all seawater entering the research facility needed to be treated. All UV systems needed to be selected to achieve minimum UV doses to achieve sufficient inactivation of viruses such as white spot.

  • Proof low pressure UV treatment is an effective approach for public swimming pools

    A 25m public swimming pool was struggling to implement consistent reductions in chloramine (combined chlorine) levels – especially during peak swimming periods.
