UV Technology in Life Sciences

For 60 years, Aquafine UV systems have been successfully serving the diverse Life Sciences industry. Aquafine UV systems are reliable, deliver consistent performance, and have become the brand of choice of WFI (Water-For-Injection) & USP (United States Pharmacopoeia) systems. Aquafine systems are found in both the pre-treatment and process areas of the water system. While commonly found in microbiological inactivation and ozone reduction applications, our low-pressure (LP), low-pressure high-output (LPHO), and amalgam systems also can be found in TOC (total organic carbon) reduction and chloramine reduction applications. ChloRid®, for chloramines reduction equipment, utilizes medium-pressure (MP) technology with a reduced footprint and provides dose and is cost efficient.

UV technology for water treatment has several inherent advantages. Nothing is added by UV light to the water stream such as color, odor, flavor, or by-products. UV technology is a fast, efficient, and cost-effective solution.

Trojan Technologies offers validated systems, providing UV lamp and NIST traceable UV sensor validation with certificates, as well as Bioassay amalgam technology. All systems comply with cGMP and FDA requirements, and sanitary connections conform to DIN and USDA 3A standards. Select models carry the marks of cULus, CE and ANSI/NSF and can be mounted horizontally or vertically, or in skid mounted systems, maximizing installation flexibility and preserving floor space.

Applications for UV

This is the most common application of UV light in water treatment. A pharmaceutical water system could have several locations where UV equipment would be installed. Some typical locations of installation would be post-carbon filter and pre-RO (reverse osmosis). When installed downstream of the carbon bed and/or directly upstream of the RO unit, a UV system can significantly reduce the microbial counts by inactivating the microorganisms present in the influent stream. Inactivation is also recommended for the process distribution loop and pre storage tank. Learn more about UV Treatment.
