bestUV awarded to deliver BetaLine UV systems for a zoo

Dutch manufacturer bestUV is again awarded to deliver ultraviolet (UV) systems for disinfection of water to one of the largest zoos in Europe. The delivery is part of a renovation project to improve the water quality for the animals and visitors.


The bestUV systems, series BetaLine-E, are all equipped with multiple ‘state-of-the-art’  high-efficient UV lamps, with stable operation in a wide temperature range during the entire lamp life.

BetaLine UV series were introduced to the market after intense microbiological validation procedures at the veterinary university for physiology, pathophysiology and biophysics. The BetaLine UV series is as well approved by several international health institutes for use of disinfection of water for consumption (including Önorm, FHI and PZH). 

Hippos drinking!BetaLine UV is a compact UV system equipped with ‘state-of-the-art’ unique high-efficient low-pressure UV lamps. The availability of bestUV’s intelligent microprocessor allows the UV system to operate in the most economic power mode. By use of the intelligent microprocessor, the bestUV system runs exactly on the power needed to fulfill minimum UV dose requirements, even when flow and surface water quality change, which is important for use in zoos.

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

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.
