"IN THE MARITIME WORLD, POTABLE WATER IS OFTEN STORED IN LARGE TANKS ON BOARD"
Stagnant water is a source of germs, such as the legionella bacteria. To guarantee the safety of guests and staff, it is important to treat the water with a disinfection system. UV-C radiation inactivates microorganisms and thus fights legionella. In addition, it is the perfect solution to disinfect wastewater before it ends up in the ocean.
Disinfection of water tanks with UV-C
The quality of drinking water on a (cruise)ship, oil tanker or yacht must meet certain guidelines. A VGE Pro UV system in the filter installation of the water tank can guarantee the safety of the water. The radiation inactivates bacteria, viruses and pathogens. The result is clean and safe water that can meet the regulations and requirements for (drinking)water at sea.
Within the shipping industry, there are strict regulations for the discharge of wastewater into the ocean. These requirements can be met by installing a VGE Pro UV-C disinfection system. The UV radiation treats the water in the final process and thus ensures that it can be discharged into the ocean free of harmful micro-organisms.
VGE Pro UV-C systems
VGE Pro UV-C systems consist of low or medium-pressure UV lamps. The low-pressure UV lamps are equipped with our SPT (Smart Pin Technology) lamp head, the medium-pressure UV lamps are equipped with the SBT (Single-end Bayonet Technology) lamp head. Both lamp heads have a visual lamp indication and ensure that the lamp can be easily and safely replaced, even if the irradiation chamber is filled with water. These lamps only allow one side to be free for mounting and/or replacement of the lamps, which saves space. This means that a VGE Pro system can be easily installed in the water treatment installation on a ship.
