Hydrok add Ultra-Violet/Ultrasound disinfection to their portfolio

Posted: Monday 25th August 2014

Hydrok have further extended their Wastewater Treatment Processes portfolio in association with manufacturer Lazur. The Hydrok-Lazur integrated Ultra-Violet and Ultrasound disinfection process eliminates (99.999%) of micro-organisms and viruses.

UV light is becoming the most common means of disinfection in the UK because of the concerns about the impacts of chlorine in chlorinating residual organics in the wastewater and in chlorinating organics in the receiving water. This means the Hydrok-Lazur disinfection systems have dual application possibilities in both Wastewater treatment and Clean Water applications. It is appropriate to include for wastewater effluent for discharge into rivers and water courses and also for water abstracted from either a ground water source, or a surface water body such as a river or reservoir for potable water treatment.

The HYDROK-LAZUR UV process has overcome the disadvantages associated with conventional UV disinfection. The most common draw backs to conventional UV disinfection processes include lamp and reactor fouling, frequent lamp maintenance and replacement and shielding of micro-organisms from UV radiation in poorly treated wastewater.

The HYDROK-LAZUR system utilises low pressure amalgam lamp technology with ultrasound in a single unit. The combination of these two technologies virtually eradicates the common problems associated with UV disinfection.
