UV disinfection reactors for corrosive water

This set of specific reactors for UV disinfection of corrosive and/or salty water allows to meet the most severe requirements of professionals and thus to optimize their operations in complete safety. High density polyethylene (HDPE) reactors are not only suitable for the disinfection of seawater. Because of their shock and corrosion resistant material, they offer an excellent price/quality ratio while ensuring a very high quality of water.

HDPE is very suitable for UV disinfection of corrosive water. It is an inert material widely used in the food industry. It is distinguished both by its high chemical resistance and its good rigidity. The temperature range of use is from -50°C to +80°C, which distinguishes it from polypropylene (PP), which becomes brittle below 10°C. HDPE is an excellent material for mixtures of acids, bases or solvents.
Many practitioners prefer HDPE reactor-based systems, even for non-corrosive fluids.

How UV disinfection works for corrosive water

UV disinfection systems for corrosive water are compact and produce an extremely fast treatment. Ultraviolet light mutates and/or degrades DNA. Once the DNA is damaged, the organism becomes unable to function because its “instructions” are scrambled or missing. An organism without instructions cannot function and reproduce, and cannot cause infection. He becomes harmless and eventually dies.

Elimination of the bacterial risk on the breeding environment

In UV disinfection systems, water is purified by passing through a HDPE chamber (also called a “reactor”) that contains one or more special UV-producing lamps. When passing in front of the lamp, the UV-C rays penetrate the heart of the DNA and disrupt the metabolism of the cells until their total destruction. Viruses, bacteria, algae, yeasts, molds… all germs are inactivated (including Legionella and Cryptosporidium). Moreover, this technology offers a huge benefit in that it does not generate any disinfection by-products, which further protects the environment and aquatic life.

Under normal use conditions:

  • 2 years, for the HDPE reactor (materials and welds)
  • 2 years for all components except the UV lamp and the quartz sleeve (consumable).

HDPE UV disinfection systems for corrosive water are designed according to the flow rate: it is the result of the combination of the contact time in the reactor, the power of the lamp(s), and the consideration of the specific transmittance of salt water (85% – lower than fresh water) that guarantees a dose (expressed in millijoules per centimeter – mJ/cm2) necessary and sufficient for the eradication of 99.9% of the microorganisms (bacteria, viruses, suspended algae,…) Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)
