BIO-UV adds more powerful machine to range
Water treatment specialist BIO-UV Group has increased the capacity of its recently launched PPO3 ozone generator range designed for use in aquaculture and industry.
The new, higher capacity machine added to the range produces 1.2 kilograms of ozone per hour. The previous maximum capacity of a PPO3 was 1kg/hour.
BIO-UV has branches near Toulouse and Montpellier in France, and a subsidiary, Triogen, in East Kilbride, Scotland, that was acquired in 2019, adding expertise in ultraviolet, AOP (advanced oxidation processes) and ozone water treatment.
The company explained in a press release that ozone generation is used in aquaculture to disinfect, increase water quality, and improve process efficiency. With a reduced environmental footprint, ozone can oxidise organic and inorganic contaminants thereby eliminating the development of waterborne diseases.
Exciting first orders
It added that it had received receiving a series of exciting first orders for aquaculture clients in Chile and Turkey, as well as large groups in the beverage industry.
BIO-UV said it had invested €1 million in research and development over the last two years with a strong contribution of its highly skilled ozone engineering team in the UK.
“As well as retaining the full suite of local and remote control and automation benefits, modular design, and our circular ozone module refurbishment and exchange service already inherent in the PPO3 range, these higher capacity systems include the key additional benefits – fully interchangeable ozone modules and spares; independently controlled ozone circuits (between 2-4 circuits); and built-in redundancy and duty standby,” said the company.
BIO-UV designs, manufactures, and services UV-C, ozone, AOP, and salt electrolysis water treatment systems for a multitude of industrial, residential, and municipal applications.
Its products include equipment to disinfect ship ballast water to ensure that no invasive species are transported around the world.
