Clean and safe water with UV desinfection

It's one of the bigest challenges posed to modern society. Water treatment in urban areas is one of the most important assets in every community, and viewed by many as a standard to evaluate social development. Keeping our water clean, fresh and safe with UV rays is a mission for Ultraaqua.

<

Ultraaqua was founded by Danish water treatment scientists in 1996. It is a recognized and well-established research-based manufacturer of high quality UV-disinfection systems for both municipal and industrial water treatment applications. The success has resulted in the installation of large scale UV-systems in more than 100 different countries worldwide.

The company allocates many resources to research and development activities in close cooperation with several universities and R&D groups in different countries. These activities ensure that the company can support its customers with cutting-edge knowledge and constantly gathers information about products from hands-on experiences in very diverse environments.

The company's product range covers all typical applications such as disinfection of drinking water, waste water or industrial process water. Also, Utraaqua manufactures systems for special applications such as photochemical oxidation of ultrapure water and de-chlorination of pool water.

Distributors worldwide are carefully selected in order to guarantee qualified support of valued customers.

Drinking water treatment

The treatment of drinking water is vital to protecting public health. Common threats are chlorine-resistant microorganisms such as Cryptosporidium and Giardia as well as fecal organisms such as E. coli and numerous other pathogens. Such microorganisms constantly pose a potential health risk in unprotected drinking water. Drinking water related diseases can be fatal and the associated costs can add up to billions of dollars worldwide.
 
Chlorine has been widely used as primary disinfectant worldwide. However, since chlorine by-products have shown to be potentially carcinogenic and problems with chlorine resistant organisms growing, UV water disinfection is now in general preferred technology.

Due to many incidents of infected drinking water even in areas with high quality water source, many municipalities have started to install UV systems at their drinking water supply to provide increased confidence.
 
Ultraaqua UV systems are also excellent for back-up because they can be in full operation within minutes. Some places UV systems are also used as part of a multi-barrier design in combination with technologies such as membrane filtration or chemical disinfection.
 
ULTRAAQUA has installed more than one thousand UV systems worldwide. The company is constantly involved in R&D projects within this field. Moreover, the ULTRAAQUA Group have both R&D and practical experience with technologies such as advanced filtration and ozone/chlorine oxidation so that technical support is unmatched.
  
Whether the project requires DVGW or ÖNORM, ULTRAAQUA has validated solutions for your drinking water application. Our products range from small UV systems for small communities to large municipal water treatment plants.
All systems are based on the same technology as our validated systems guaranteeing full efficacy in the complete range.

Wastewater

In order to protect the natural environment (rivers, lakes, beaches, coastal areas) increasingly stricter regulations have been implemented to limit release of pathogenic microorganisms originating from domestic wastewater.  Therefore, many wastewater utilities have adopted ultraviolet (UV) as the most appropriate treatment option as opposed to chemical disinfection.

UV disinfection of municipal wastewater is the only cost-effective disinfection alternative that does not have the potential to create or release carcinogenic by-products into the environment. In addition, UV is an effective disinfectant for chlorine-resistant protozoa like Cryptosporidium and Giardia. While unregulated in wastewater, these harmful protozoa, if left untreated, can find their way into drinking water intakes or recreational waters.
