Water decontamination system:

Aurich Lab Solutions has developed a new type of decontamination device for the company biotec.


The UV boat has significant advantages over other decontamination systems:

  • No chemicals (biocides) required
  • Rapid and effective disinfection
  • No change in the smell and taste of the water
  • No environmental burden through chemicals in waste water
  • Disinfection even with existing chlorine resistance of pathogens
  • Extension of check cycles for circulating water spray humidifiers, according to VDI 6022, from 2 to 4 weeks
  • Low operating costs, change of UV burner after approx. 8000 h, low energy consumption
  • Easy operation
  • Connection of up to 5 UV reactors possible
  • Possible integration with building control systems
  • Remote maintenance and control via Ethernet connection

How it works

Ultraviolet radiation is a natural component of sunlight, which has a germicidal effect at approx. 200 to 300 nm.

Microorganisms are reliably eradicated which prevents their reproduction and thus providing decontamination.

This effect is used by the UV-Boat as a patented system (biotec GmbH, Gütersloh) in several ways:

  1. An integrated pump sucks water into the UV-Boat and directs it past the UV radiation source. Here the water is decontaminated and ejected at the opposite end. This captures and processes all the pool water.
  2. The UV-light penetrated the quarts glass body and irradiates all surfaces in range. These are also decontaminated. The effective mode of operation of the UV reactor permits the use of a UV lamp with low power, which has a positive effect on operating costs.

Application range

The UV-Boat is used in a range of applications:

  • Circulating water spray humidifiers
  • Open recooling units
  • Process waters
  • TOC reduction in permeate disinfection
  • Treatment of ultrapure water with extremely high UV dosage (pharmacy)
  • In circular operation in cooling towers and greenhouses
  • Beverage and food industry
  • Water reservoirs
