UV disinfection system for aquaponics / aquaculture / freshwater fish farming

Aquaculture techniques such as fish farming and aquaponics require water quality sterilization. UV treatment is a water purification technique that can be used for freshwater. Ultraviolet technology is harmless to the marine world and highly effective in sterilizing water. In this way, the crops live in a healthy environment and greatly reduce the outbreaks of disease that crops can suffer.

If you’d like to equip yourself with an efficient disinfection system for aquaponics / aquaculture / freshwater fish farming, our full range of freshwater UV reactors can be viewed online, and design can be carried out on this page.

Disinfection system benefits

In addition to producing healthy water, free from any risk of contamination by micro-organisms, UV water treatment is also part of an environmental approach:

  • Regarding health, water treatment without the addition of harmful pool products guarantees allergy- and respiratory ailment-free swimming (non-chemical).
  • It also provides comfort by ensuring crystal-clear, odor-free water.
  • The absence of chlorine guarantees an environmentally-friendly and healthy process.
  • UV treatment offers real savings thanks to longer plant life and simple, reliable, long-lasting equipment.
  • Last but not least, installation and maintenance are quick and easy.

Design advice: UV disinfection applied for aquaponics / aquaculture / freshwater fish farming

On the UV reactors for fresh water page, many solutions are proposed (up to a unit flow rate of 130 m3/h). For higher flow rates, up to 130 m3/h, please contact us!

  • Select “Freshwater “
  • Select the water source to be potabilized, e.g. “Aquariums and freshwater ornamental ponds”.
  • Enter the flow rate to be treated (for example 25 m3/h)
  • Adjust the cost of electricity in your country (for example 0.09€ for France; 0.23€ for Germany)
  • Keep 30 mJ / cm² (or adapt)
    Specify the temperature of the water (normally, between 5 and 40°c is sufficient)
  • Please enter your email address, we will send you the design right away

In any case, to ensure optimal disinfection and to determine whether prefilters are necessary, it is recommended that a source water analysis be performed with these parameters:

  • Iron
  • Hardness
  • Turbidity
  • Manganese
  • Suspended solids (TSS)
  • UV Transmittance
