UV disinfection system for oyster and shellfish farming

The UV disinfection system for oysters and shellfish is used in marine aquaculture. The reactors used here make it possible to sterilize the water and improve its quality. This is particularly true for bacteriological parameters.

The crops pass through purification tanks before being packaged to provide the highest quality.

UV lamps can remove 100% of the bacterial load in the breeding environment and solve bacteriological problems. In addition, UV treatment is more effective than other sterilization techniques because :

  • easy to use
  • reliable
  • low investment cost

If you are looking for an effective disinfection system for oyster and shellfish farming, the full range of saltwater UV reactors can be viewed online, and design calculations can be carried out on this page.

Disinfection system benefits

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

  • In terms of health, water treatment without the addition of harmful pool products guarantees bathing without the risk of allergies or respiratory ailments.
  • It also provides a high level of safety by ensuring crystal-clear, odorless water.
  • The absence of chlorine guarantees an environmentally friendly and healthy process
  • UV treatment provides significant cost savings thanks to longer plant life and simple, reliable, long-lasting equipment.
  • Last but not least, the system is quick and easy to install and maintain.

Design suggestions: UV disinfection applied to oyster and shellfish farming

On the page dedicated to UV reactors for corrosive/salty water, you’ll find a wide range of solutions (up to a unit flow rate of 130 m3/h). If your flow rate exceeds 130 m3/h, please ask us!

  • Select
  • Select the water source to be potabilized, e.g. “Oyster farming, shellfish farming”.
  • 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)
  • Let 30 mJ / cm² (or adapt)
  • Specify the temperature of the water (normally, between 5 and 40°c is sufficient)
  • Please enter your email address so that we can 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
