Total Organic Carbon Reduction

UV treatment systems utilising ozone-producing UV lamps are an efficient solution to reduce Total Organic Carbon (TOC) in ultrapure and other water applications.

TOC Reduction using Ozone-Producing UV Light

TOC is a measurement of the number of organic compounds in water. It provides vital information to industries or operators by indicating if their process water is to a suitable quality.

Ultrapure water is a key requirement in pharmaceutical, semiconductor and microelectronic industries. TOC needs to be reduced in these applications to preserve product quality. In other applications such as wastewater or stormwater treatment, TOC reduction is required to improve the water quality to a safe level suitable for discharge or re-use.

Design of TOC Reducing UV Treatment Systems
UV Guard has many years of data detailing the impact of UV treatment and the required UV doses to achieve measurable reductions. As a highly specialised application, it is advised each project be discussed with a UV Guard engineer.
