Cities are expanding and becoming increasingly large and populated. Ensuring an effective waste water treatment and recovery system is a complex issue that requires attention.
Protecting human welfare and the environment is an important issue for us all.
Waste water has a strong environmental impact, as it is full of pathogens potentially harmful to human health (e.g. E.coli, Salmonella, Shigella, Vibrio, Cryptosporidium, Giardia, Enterovirus, Hepatitis, etc…). For this reason it is fundamental to ensure an efficient purification process, and eliminate contaminating agents before discharging them in nature.
It is worth noting that the growing scarcity of water resources in many parts of the world leads to the creation of waste water recycling systems for irrigation or industrial use.
The effectiveness, the safety and the optimisation of the cost / benefit ratio increasingly encourages local operators and associations to adopt UV technology for waste water treatment. In the last 20 years, the development of technology has led to the extensive use of UV technology by a growing number of employees.
Waste water in an open channel or closed-vessel is irradiated by ultraviolet light that instantaneously disables pathogens and microorganisms. UV technology is eco-friendly and prevents the addition of chemical disinfectants in waste water, maintaining an equilibrium in the ecosystem near discharge points.
Some organisms have also developed resistance to the action of chemical agents (e.g. chlorine); UV is not subject to this type of interference, as it directly attacks DNA.
Appropriately sizing the UV disinfection station and taking the required technical precautions in terms of the equipment are fundamental to ensuring the disinfection process.
