BIO-UV, an innovative industrial SME and a French manufacturer of ultraviolet light water treatment equipment designs, manufactures and markets systems and concepts of disinfection by ultraviolet light (UV-C).
The company has developed sanitizers using the most advanced UV technologies for tertiary treatment by disinfecting municipal or industrial waste water. BIO-UV treatment makes it possible to protect the environment downstream of the discharge of treatment plants, particularly when there are bathing areas, white water activities, fishing and aquaculture activities nearby.
Reuse the purified wastewater for agricultural irrigation, spraying of green open spaces and golf courses, or for industrial processes (washing water etc.) The company proposes a low pressure technology and various types of reactors in order to adapt to the aims of the treatment and to the installation and maintenance constraints.
In certain cases, prior filtration (on a sand bed) may be necessary. At 254 nanometers, the optimum wavelength for destroying micro-organisms, UV-C rays penetrate to the heart of DNA and disturb the metabolism of cells until they are totally destroyed. All germs are thus deactivated (including Legionella and Cryptosporidium) and cannot reproduce.
The reactors in the BIO-UV ranges are dimensioned according to the flow rate. It is the combination of the contact time in the reactor and the power of the lamp(s) that will ensure that the necessary dose sufficient to kill 99.9 percent of the micro-organisms (bacteria, viruses, algae in suspension) is received.
