UV Wastewater Treatment
Many traditional wastewater treatment plants pump their treated effluent into rivers, estuaries and the sea. But New Zealand has increasing regulations to ensure wastewater is treated effectively to protect waterways from harmful discharge.
UV treatment is an environmentally friendly alternative to chemical-intensive disinfectant such as chlorination. This technology can bring your system into compliance.
We work with Berson UV who are UV Waste water treatment leaders offering a wide range of both closed-vessel or open channel UV systems, treating waste water flows at any capacity.
UV in Waste-Water Treatment and Re-Use Plants
UV light inactivates microorganisms (bacteria and viruses) by altering their DNA, preventing replication or infection. All conventional disinfection methods (chlorine, ozone) produce disinfection by-products, increasing the risk of carcinogenic effects for human and wild-life. UV is an elegant proven solution over the last few decades in most developed regions in the world to reduce environmental risks. In terms of power consumption; the newest lamp and lamp driver techniques ensure reducing the carbon-footprints to minimal acceptable levels.
We looked at a number of options and Waterclean’s solution had the cheapest capital costs, the cheapest operating costs, and a simple way of operating and delivers the best results. It was a win-win all round.
Thanks to Waterclean, we made considerable cost savings for the ratepayers and significantly improved the quality of the treated effluent going into the rivers. It was a great result for the councillors, staff, and the community as a whole.
