How Ultraviolet systems help to ‘Ensure Microbial Protection’ of your process water

Sponsored by: Aquionics UV

Focused on:

  • Beverage Water Treatment
  • U V System Disinfection

Date: 30 June


Time: 3PM London/10AM New York

UV technology explained and latest developments for specific application

The increasing trend for water re-use and stringent disinfection practices (especially in water intensive and water critical industries such as power, food and beverage (F&B) and pharmaceutical markets) acts as a major driver for the water and wastewater disinfection systems market - as key manufacturers are increasingly specifying validated performance for UV systems

This Webinar will focus on delivering key education on the benefits of using UV for industrial beverage production. The audience will be educated on how UV works to eliminate the threat of resistant bacteria in water and sugar syrup, and the differences in UV lamp technologies. The common issues with water quality and current industrial drivers will be pointed out, and how Aquionic's application centre is enabling support for new UV science applications, to improve the water treatment process. Discussion will include:

Industry Drivers:

  • There has been an increase in UV treatment, since it eliminates or greatly reduces the need for chemicals in disinfection - which aids in not affecting the final taste of the product, and in some cases may improve shelf life.
  • Several micro-organisms can be detected in industrial water and wastewater such as E.coli, Giardia lamblia, Cryptosporidium parvum, and they have resulted in large number of epidemics in the US and Great Britain through drinking water. The latter two require stronger eradication methods (such as UV). In some countries such as India, China, Korea, Malaysia, and the Middle Eastern countries this will be a mandatory requirement in water treatment methods.

Water re-use in beverage plants:

  • UV Disinfection can serve as an excellent secondary treatment step in the water reuse cycle which can act as a good source of water for crop irrigation, wash down water and industrial cooling waters.
  • Water reuse is a growing practice in the US with more than two billion gallons per day of water being reused. Similarly, in Middle Eastern Countries such as Saudi Arabia, 11 per cent of its water use is expected to be mandatorily from treated wastewater for domestic and industrial applications.
  • The Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) will also advocate the reuse of waters as it relates to irrigation. UV is a proven step in this process.
