A natural process

Ultraviolet (UV) treatment eliminates bacteria, viruses, spores and mould. It works in the same way as strong sunlight to permanently purify water by making biological impurities inactive. Hanovia’s UV disinfection systems use powerful lamps to produce concentrated ultraviolet radiation which destroys micro-organisms.

Water safety in every situation

Hanovia’s UV technology is used in the food and beverage, pharmaceutical, electronics, marine, aquaculture and leisure industries to safeguard health and guarantee the high levels of purity needed to meet rigorous technical specifications.

Harnessing UV power

Micro-organisms compromise the purity of water and spoil food products.  Hanovia’s systems use medium pressure UV lamps designed to destroy the links in these micro-organisms’ DNA so that they are de-activated and cannot reproduce. The crucial hydrogen bonds that link the DNA chain together rupture when exposed to light between 230nm and 310nm. Hanovia’s medium pressure lamps are optimised at 265nm to match the peak absorbency of DNA, to make sure that harmful micro-organisms are fatally damaged.
