Two waterworks select BetaLine UV systems

ByglandsfjordDutch UV manufacturer bestUV is again selected to deliver Önorm validated BetaLine UV systems for two scandinavian communal drinking water plants. The drinking water is mechanical filtered surface water and origins from the lake. The two waterworks decided to replace some low-pressure (LP) UV systems, installed in the 80‘s, by ‘state-of-the-art’ bestUV systems.

BetaLine UV systems were introduced to the market after intense validation procedures at universities for Water hygiene, (Patho)physiology and Biophysics. They are approved by several international health institutes for use in disinfection of water for human consumption. 

Bygland_and_JordalsboeBetaLine is a compact UV system, equipped with unique high-efficient low-pressure UV lamps. They operate in automatic mode on the most economic lamp power due to bestUV’s intelligent power controlsystem. The bestUV system runs exactly on the power needed to fulfill minimum UV dose requirements, even when flow and surface waterquality change.

Compared to medium-pressure (MP) UV systems the BetaLine is saving a lot of energy and has thus the lowest carbon footprint, which fit into the ‘environmental phylosophy’ of the waterworks. 

The engineers selected bestUV systems for a couple of reasons:

  • lowest investment costs,
  • 15 years lifecycle costs calculation (LCC),
  • long lamp life, 3x more compared to medium-pressure UV lamps
  • easy installation and maintenance,
  • automatic lamppower controlsystem, resulting in minimum use of energy,
  • automatic cleaning device, included in Önorm validation tests,
  • proven reliability at many drinking water references.

Again bestUV systems are disinfecting drinking water for human consumption against lowest costs on a very environmental friendly way and thus preserve and protect the beautiful nature.

bestUV awarded for delivery to Baltic State

Dutch manufacturer bestUV is again awarded to deliver ultraviolet (UV) systems for disinfection of drinking water to one of the Baltic States.

The bestUV systems are all equipped with high-efficient UV lamps and automatic cleaning mechanisms for prevention of fouling of the protective quartz sleeves and UV sensor.

The delivery is part of a waterproject financed by European Union funds for reconstruction of water and sewage systems.

The UV units will be installed in a pressure pumping station, supplying disinfected drinking water to small communities with total amount of abt. 20.000 inhibitants.

The local company already installed several bestUV systems and again selected the bestUV systems for reasons of proven reliability, effectiveness, easy maintenance and good price/quality ratio.

bestUV system ‘high in the mountains’

Dutch manufacturer bestUV was selected to supply an ultraviolet (UV) system for an accomodation in the Swiss Alps.

Before summer season of 2011 the bestUV unit was transported by helicopter to the accommodation on a height of over 2500m.

The purpose of the use of the bestUV systems is to protect the visitors against pathogens in the drinking water. The water originates from melting snow and must be disinfected before it can be used for human consumption. 

Ultraviolet light has an advantage over chemical treatment, such as chlorine, as UV does not formate chlorinated organic compounds.

BestUV system was selected because of the compact size, robust construction of the UV reactors and cabinets and the limited maintenance requirements. 

bestUV systems for safe drinking water

Dutch manufacturer bestUV was selected to supply two ultraviolet (UV) systems for a communal drinking water plant in Europe. 

The purpose of the bestUV systems is to protect the local citizens against potential pathogens in the drinking water. The UV dose applied is based on local requirements of at least
400 J/m2 (at the end of lamplife).

BestUV systems were selected because of the compact size, robust construction of the UV reactors and cabinets and shown references.

The bestUV systems include strong adjustable medium-pressure (MP) UV lamps and are equipped with integrated automatic cleaning mechanisms to prevent fouling of the protective quartz sleeves. The unique absolute UV sensor, a development of bestUV, controls all UV lamps continuously and provides a UV signal to the local and central PLCs. 

Both controlled by individual PLCs with local read-out of UV dose (mJ/cm2) and UV intensity (W/m2) as well as actual status of the UV systems. 

Since the start-up, in August 2010 (over 12.000 hours ago) the UV lamps are not replaced and still provide sufficient UV dose to the drinking water.

Certified KappaLine for ‘semi-submersible’ accommodation platform

Dutch UV manufacturer bestUV was selected to deliver NIPH (Norwegian Institute of Public Health) approved KappaLine UV systems to be installed on a ‘semi-submersible’ accommodation platform or ‘hotel on sea’. 

A ‘semi-submersible accomodation platform’ has columns and pontoons to cause the structure to float. It  can be moved from place to place to any location where extra lodging is needed.

The KappaLine UV systems will be used for disinfection of drinking water for over 400 single bed cabins on the accomodation platform. 

The platform is built in compliance with all the latest rules and regulations within the Norwegian sector. According to these regulations the UV systems must be biodosimeteric validated by an independent third party followed by approval of the NIPH ‘Liste B’, as the platform will operate in the norwegian part of the North Sea.

The KappaLine is compact, has a very small footprint, uses unique high-efficient low-pressure UV lamps. Compared to similar compact medium-pressure UV systems the KappaLine uses abt. 3x less power consumption and provide 3x longer lamp life.

Unique compact bestUV system

The Dutch manufacturer bestUV presented a new generation of high efficiency ultraviolet (UV) systems called KappaLine UV at the Aquatech tradeshow. The range is specifically  designed, microbiologically tested and certified for the disinfection of drinking and process water. The KappaLine UV product range is officially approved for disinfection of (drinking) water.

The KappaLine UV range is unique in design and lamp technology. The basis of the design is a combination of theoretical computer modeling (CFD) and practical microbiological testing. An extensive optimization process has resulted in the unique definite shape of the KappaLine UV range and it is officially certified for use in (drinking) water.

The specially designed state-of-the-art low pressure UV lamps offer optimum efficiency, long lamp life and thus low (LCC) operating costs.

The unique and compact design, where the connecting piping flanges are positioned in one line, result in the smallest footprint and lowest possible pressure drop.

Besides the application for disinfection of (drinking) water the KappaLIne UV is also very suitable for combined UV / hydrogen peroxide processes (AOP) where organic micro-pollutants are to be destructed.
