Ultraviolet (UV) treatment effectively destroys 99.9% of waterborne microorganisms.
PRAB’s line of UV systems for water purification are an environmentally friendly alternative to chlorine disinfection and have no disinfection byproducts (DBP’s).
UV purification is used with other forms of filtration, such as a reverse osmosis (RO) and ozone systems and is compact in size.
PRAB Water & Wastewater is a leader in fluid waste management, ultrafiltration, wastewater reuse, and reverse osmosis pre-treatment with partnerships that span globally. Our UV systems effectively destroy 99.9% of waterborne microorganisms. Effluent water can be discharged to a sewer or reused. Systems offer a robust design which effectively removes organic impurities from a variety of different water streams for optimum fluid waste management.
PRAB’s UV systems and wastewater treatment technology will help you meet zero manifesting goals and comply with federal Resource Conservation and Recovery Act requirements, as well as state and local discharge regulations.
Ultraviolet can also be used for Total Oxidizable Carbon (TOC). These systems typically utilize thin cylindrical bulbs capable of generating UV light in the 185 nm range, placed in close physical proximity to high-purity glass tubes through which the water flows. UV light possesses considerable energy and is absorbed by compounds and organisms at most wavelengths. However, certain wavelengths are more effective due to energy and absorption characteristics so as to induce maximum effect. For example, bacteria are most susceptible at 254 nanometers (nm). At a wavelength of 185 nm, the increased energy and adsorption sensitivity of oxidizable organic compounds leads to formation of hydroxyl free radicals in varying degrees of photochemical excitement. These hydroxyl (OH-) free radicals break various chemical bonds of organics, which in turn produce chain reactions, oxidizing most organics into carbon dioxide and water, the basic building blocks of all organic compounds.

Most of the hazardous waste in surface finishing comes from wastewater that is generated by rinse water. Due to the substantial amount of this waste, within this $155 billion dollar industry, companies are taking quick action to mitigate the environmental risk associated with dumping, and consumption. One of the major steps is though pollution prevention planning and water conservation. […]
Green Engineering How to Design More Profit into the Metalworking Operation By Ron Chapman, Systems Sales Manager & Teresa Phillips, Senior Marketing Specialist, PRAB Introduction The green movement is not a new concept. In fact, the basic principles were well-known throughout Europe in the medieval era. However, it was the Industrial Revolution in Europe that […]
