Chemical-free UV disinfection system enables sensitive processes

Related tags: Control theory

A chemical-free ultraviolet (UV) disinfection system for sensitive processes, such as those found in food and beverage applications, has been introduced by Xylem.

The Wedeco Spektron Industrial System uses closed-vessel UV reactors with Wedeco Ecoray UV lamps and ballasts. This is said to make them highly sustainable while assuring consistent disinfection quality without added taste or colour.

The Ecoray technology also provided energy savings of up to 20% due to its optimised hydraulics and variable power control.

In addition, Ecoray lamps are claimed to achieve a high output with minimal maintenance requirements and contain less mercury than similar technologies on the market.

As with other disinfection systems in the Wedeco range, Spektron Industrial Systems include a standard EcoTouch controller and OptiDose closed-loop control, which monitors operating conditions such as flow, UV transmittance, and UV intensity in real-time.

For added efficiency, the controller can adjust the energy consumption of the models, depending on the dosing requirements needed.

Featuring an improved inner surface, the systems are available in four models, ranging from 28m3​/h to a maximum flow of 150m3​/h, to meet customer needs.

Ecoray Technology

Posted by Dr.D.K.Thompkinson,

Would like to know more details about Ecoray Technology and related accessories. Wonder if this technology can be used for sterilizing liquid milk to enhance its shelf life.
