Wastewater

From large-scale wastewater disinfection operations to small-scale systems, UV treatment is a safe, environmentally-friendly and cost-effective solution. More and more wastewater treatment plants are adopting this method over chemical-based disinfection methods, such as chlorine gas.

UV Disinfection for Wastewater Treatment

Global data shows UV disinfection offers a significantly safer wastewater treatment option for communities and plant workers. It effectively destroys virtually all harmful microorganisms such as E.coli, Salmonella, Giardia and Cryptosporidium, making it a comprehensive approach for wastewater discharge treatment. With no carcinogenic by-products or negative impacts on aquatic life and the environment, UV disinfection is also genuinely sustainable.

For a majority of municipal wastewater UV disinfection tenders, a minimum required UV dose is specified. Where this figure is not provided, UV Guard will apply global best-practice to provide a recommended UV dose rate to achieve a certain treated water total coliform value.
