The ultraviolet (UV) disinfection of drinking water is both environmentally friendly and extremely efficient; hence it is no surprise that this treatment technology is globally gaining importance year on year. For more than 12 years, WEDECO AG as a leading UV manufacturer has been providing the municipal drinking water market with UV systems certified according to stringent Central European requirements (German DVGW W-294 and Austrian M-5871).
WEDECO’s new product line “Spektron”, has been specifically designed for this market application. It will be introduced to the public during the upcoming ACHEMA exhibition in Frankfurt (April 3 - 7, 2006).
Employing the most up-to-date development methods, a specific focus has been on optimising the combination of UV light intensity field and retention time distribution. The net result is an extremely energy-efficient UV series, which is designed for a wide range of UV transmittance (i.e. a broad range of water qualities). In comparison to conventional UV systems using low pressure lamps, the efficiency has been increased up to 30%. UV systems using medium pressure lamps require even 4 times more energy for the identical performance.
WEDECO’s UV series “Spektron” provides the following advantages:
– Hydraulic independence due to unique CrossMix™ module
– Extremely high energy efficiency
– Substantially decreased operating costs
– Extremely low headloss
– Highest component reliability
– Extended lamp life
– New type of coating of all lamps
– Multiple mounting position
– Meets and exceeds all EMC requirements
The WEDECO UV series “Spektron” thus raises standard for the disinfection of drinking water with UV light.
WEDECO (www.wedeco.com), part of ITT Industries, Inc. (www.itt.com), is the world’s leading manufacturer of ultraviolet water disinfection and ozone oxidation systems. Highly efficient UV systems provide chemical-free disinfection solutions to a variety of markets including municipal drinking water, wastewater, industrial process applications and consumer/residential water treatment. WEDECO’s leading ozone oxidation systems are used in a wide range of industrial and municipal applications. Ozone oxidizes harmful contaminants in industrial wastewater and eliminates color, taste and odor in drinking water. WEDECO is committed to providing technologies that contribute to public health and environmental protection.
A WEDECO "Spektron” model will be shown on the WEDECO booth at the ACHEMA in Frankfurt (Hall 9.1, booth H29-H31), where further information will also be available.
