UV Disinfection - Ultraviolet light (UV) is highly effective at inactivating bacteria and viruses and also for oxidising organic species in water, when utilising medium pressure polychromatic lamp technology. Ultraviolet disinfection consists of a physical, chemical-free process, attacking the vital DNA of the bacteria directly, including examples such as parasites, Cryptosporidium or Giardia, which are extremely resistant to chemical disinfectants. In addition, it reduces chloramines by a variety of mechanisms.
Ozone Disinfection - Ozone is a gas that is a highly active form of oxygen, hundreds of times more powerful and effective than chemical treatments such as chlorine. Ozone oxidises the urea/ammonia responsible for chloramine production as well as chloramines formed. This precursor reduction also leads to reductions in THM levels. Generated on-site, dissolving ozone gas in water kills all bacteria and viruses leaving water with the highest level of clarity and brightness, free from odour and taste.
