Dutch 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.
BetaLine 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 was again awarded for delivery of several bestUV systems for a cosmetics company in Eastern-Europe.
The bestUV systems, integrated in the water treatment loop, are used for the following purposes e.g.:
All applications require their own specific UV dose (mJ/cm2) to be effective. UV for the disinfection process is totally different from the other processes. For breakdown of ozone (O3), free chlorine (HOCl/OCl-) and Total Organic Carbons (TOC) a much higher UV dose is required compared to disinfection and in some cases different combinations of UV lamps and quartz sleeves are required.
Besides bestUV’s decades of application knowledge, a very important strength of bestUV is the possibility to customize the bestUV systems according to the endusers’ requirements. The bestUV systems follow the highest standards in cosmetics and pharmaceutics industries, such as, but not limited to:
hygienic tri-clamp connections,
material certificates 3.1 acc to EN 10204:2004

Several bestUV systems were installed in one of the latest new-built aquaparcs in Europe. The new constructed aquaparc is officially opened in the begin of 2012.
Dutch manufacturer bestUV, leading in UV units for swimming pools, was selected by the contractors because of its wide range of references, proven effects and high quality products with lowest operational cost.
In the new-built aquaparc the bestUV units are used in:
50m Olympic swimming pool
salt water pool
All pools are equipped with bestUV systems including specially developped bestUV lamps, UV sensor technology and cleaning device to prevent fouling of quartz sleeves.
Salt water pool
Especially the UV unit for the ‘salt water pool’ is confirming again the innovative strength of bestUV. The salty pool water is highly corrosive to the material normally used in pool water. After many years of testing in comparable situations, bestUV is able to provide a high quality low-cost solution for UV pool units, resistant to highly corrosive warm salt water.
The bestUV systems are following the new draft (May 2011) of the German DIN 19643-2:2011-05 chapter 4.5.5. The DIN allows the use of specific medium-pressure UV lamps only.
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.
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.
bestUV is proudly based in the world’s most intelligent region. Brainport Eindhoven, the industrial high-tech heart of the Netherlands, was named ICF’s Intelligent Community of the Year for 2011.Top technology region Brainport is a breeding ground for innovation and the home base for leading companies like bestUV, world-class knowledge and research institutes.
