Water technology company, Xylem, has introduced a new ultraviolet disinfection system tailored for use in saltwater and other challenging water conditions.

The Wedeco Acton PE UV system can be designed for disinfection rates of over 99.99% and can help customers increase productivity while reducing energy consumption and maintenance.

Peer Krueger, global UV product manager for Xylem’s Wedeco brand, said that Xylem had thorough understanding of the aquaculture industry’s challenges. “Rising demand for seafood has led to rapid growth and with that growth comes an increased need to control bacteria and biosecurity risk,” he said. “With its combination of robust design, durable material and efficient lamp technology, our new Wedeco Acton PE system offers world-class reliability and cost-efficiency.”

The system’s non-corroding polyethylene HDPE (PE 100) design is optimal for aquaculture farms, aquaria, zoos, saltwater thermal pools, well boats and similar saltwater environments. Using high-power Wedeco EcoRay UV lamps (600 W/lamp), the system maintains hygienic conditions for water intake, outflow and recirculation in aquaculture, preventing growth of pathogenic bacteria, fungi and viruses.

The Wedeco EcoRay lamp technology is also said to offer significant energy savings thanks to its proportionally high UV intensity in both dimmed and full-power mode, and its ability to monitor real time conditions, continuously adapting output to actual demand.

The system, first presented at Aqua Nor, can be integrated in a facility’s overall control system and comes with a guarantee of 14,000 operating hours per lamp.
