Hanovia Awarded €3.9m for UV Development Project

Eco-UV project aims to bring new UV water disinfection technology to market

Funded by Horizon 2020, the EU’s biggest ever research and innovation programme, ECO-UV has as its central objective the “demonstration and characterisation of an innovative UV lamp and driving electronics technology for chemical-free water treatment and disinfection”.


Led by UV industry leader Hanovia and partnered by three sector leading organisations: the premier research university Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) in Germany, DVGW, the German Gas and Waterworks Association’s Centre of Applied Research, and IVL, the Swedish Environmental Research Institute, the project brings together industry, academia and independent test and verification bodies.

The aim of Eco-UV is to develop ground-breaking UV technology for the treatment of industrial process water and other fluids with increased lamp life and greatly increased energy efficiency, providing a much lower carbon footprint and reduced environmental impact.

The project will prove the new UV lamp technology by demonstrating it in real applications, with full characterisation in terms of long-term stability, ageing effects and dose-response-relationship. The UV lamps will be integrated in Hanovia treatment systems and the performance of the whole UV system will be independently evaluated at DVGW and monitored for efficiency by IVL.

Testing protocols for different end-users applications will also be derived, which could act as the basis for a future standardised validation for industrial UV applications in the EU. A full Life Cycle evaluation of cost and environmental benefits in comparison to traditional UV technology will be assessed by IVL in order to ensure active uptake of the technology in the marketplace.

“This substantial award from the European Union represents a huge vote of confidence in the technical and economic ambition of Hanovia and our ability to deliver a new generation of highly efficient UV lamps,” comments Project Manager Jane Wallis of Hanovia. ”We are very excited to be part of this project, working with some of the world’s leading research, validation and environmental assessment organisations to bring to the market this new generation of UV disinfection technology and so help our clients around the world reduce their costs and carbon footprint.”
Eco-UV has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement number 641702.

Creating a Heavenly Spa with UV Disinfection

Westin Resort’s ‘Heavenly Spa’ in Bali chooses Hanovia UV technology

Located in Nusa Dua, Bali, Westin Resort’s luxurious Heavenly Spa includes wet treatment rooms with steam showers, a hair salon, an indoor lounge and separate male and female wet areas with salt saunas, aroma steam baths and vitality pools.


As the water treatment regime in spas is so exacting, ultraviolet (UV) disinfection is often used as the cleanest technology available. Not only does UV destroy harmful microorganisms in the water, enabling controlled chlorination that avoids adverse dosing, it also breaks down the irritant chloramine by-products of the treatment process. This ensures the air around the spa is clear, without the industrial ‘chlorine’ smell often associated with heavily chlorinated water.

Based on extensive experience providing UV systems to high-end spas, Hanovia was selected by Barr+Wray, the main contractor, to provide the UV disinfection system for the Heavenly Spa. Barr+Wray also installed equipment for the pool plant and pool attractions, as well as the salt saunas, aroma steam baths and VIP steam showers. The Hanovia system features an automated wiping system that cleans the system and prevents the build-up of residues on the UV lamp.

Adding UV to the spa’s water treatment regime not only gets rid of harmful chlorine by-products but also saves money on the reduction of chlorine used. This reduction in chlorine usage is a real benefit, as it potentially reduces costs and makes the backwash water discharge more environmentally friendly. Added to that, UV-treated water is demonstrably clearer and there is less wear and tear to building structures from unwanted chlorine by-products.

Completed in December 2013, the Heavenly Spa is already winning awards. It was voted Country Winner in the Best Luxury Wellness Spa in the 2014 World Luxury Hotel Awards and also came in as a finalist in the Best Luxury Day Spa category.

90 Years and Counting!

For 90 years Hanovia, tucked away in the Berkshire town of Slough in the UK, has been quietly innovating. From its early days making UV lamps for treating skin conditions to today’s high-tech UV water treatment systems, the company has always been at the forefront of UV science and, at 90, age is no barrier to innovation!

Hanovia is now a world leader in UV disinfection for applications as diverse as food and beverage processing, pharmaceutical manufacturing, brewing, electronics, swimming pools, buildings, ballast water and fish farms.

To celebrate its 90th anniversary the company hosted a celebration at its HQ on November 3 which was attended the Mayor of Slough, Shafiq Chaudhry, Rob Anderson, the Leader of Slough Borough Council, representatives from SEGRO (which runs Slough Trading Estate), journalists and ex-Hanovia employees.

After a brief talk by John Ryan, Hanovia’s Managing Director, about Hanovia’s long history – and looking ahead to the next 10 years – visitors had a short factor tour which was followed by a cake-cutting ceremony and lunch.

It was fantastic to see so many ex-employees on the day – and we were honoured that the Mayor was able to attend. Everyone found John’s talk interesting and the factory tour was the first time some of the visitors had even see a UV system, so there were plenty of interesting questions!

Hanovia’s PureLine PQ Offers an Economic Alternative for Dairy Pasteurisation

Hanovia’s PureLine PQ range of UV disinfection systems is designed specifically to provide validated and chemical-free treatment of process water used in the dairy, food and beverage industries. PureLine PQ provides a time- and cost-effective alternative to standard pasteurisation – it also meets the US Food and Drug Administration’s 2011 Pasteurized Milk Ordinance guidelines.

PureLine PQ uses either low pressure high output or medium pressure lamps to safely disinfect water passing through the system, exposing it to UV light and deactivating any microorganisms present. All systems feature an automatic wiper to automate optical path maintenance, further reducing operating expenses.

The Dairy Plus Co. Ltd. in Thailand has recently replaced its chlorine-based disinfection system with five PureLine PQ UV systems – four duty and one standby. Two units disinfect clean-in-place (CIP) water and two are used for treating dairy mixing water, with each system treating up to 130m3/hour of water. Dairy Plus decided to reduce high levels of chlorine dosage throughout the process because it was proving ineffective at removing all microorganisms, particularly in the rainy season. It was also producing an after-taste in the product.

“Since our UV systems were installed the customer is very satisfied and reports excellent disinfection results,” commented Ying Xu, Hanovia’s Asia-Pacific Sales Manager. “Dairy Plus is particularly impressed by the low maintenance costs, the high energy output of the systems and the fact that the frequency of CIP procedures has been dramatically reduced, meaning less down-time of the manufacturing process”.

Hanovia is celebrating its 90th anniversary this year! From its early days manufacturing UV lamps to treat skin conditions to today’s validated, performance qualified UV water treatment systems, the company has always been a technology leader and at the at the forefront of UV innovation.

Using UV Disinfection to Ensure Bio-Security in the Pharmaceutical, Food and Beverage Industries

The pharmaceutical and food & beverage industries are unique in that their products are either consumed directly or are used in products that are actively consumed by people. In an increasingly regulated and safety-conscious market, these industries have to meet ever more stringent standards on water quality and bio-security.

It is vital to treat the water used in the manufacturing process to remove toxins, biohazards and any unwanted organic materials, while at the same time not incurring any residual taste, colour or reagents that could affect another part of the downstream process. In these industries the ‘raw’ potable water they source at the start of the process may not be completely free of bio-challenges, as needed for their individual processes, resulting in active growth of microorganisms to harmful levels.

UV disinfection for processing

UV disinfection for processing

UV is ideal for these applications as it is both effective and chemical-free. It eliminates all known pathogenic and spoilage microorganisms, including bacteria, viruses, yeasts and moulds (and their spores) and is low maintenance and environmentally friendly.

In this article Mark Aston, Hanovia’s Technical Manager, discusses the importance of UV in ensuring bio-security.

The importance of bio-security
Bio-security is very important to understand from both the supplier and customer perspective. It is a fine balancing act between providing an appropriately-sized treatment system on the one hand while ensuring viable cost of ownership on the other.

Where a UV system is required to target a specific bacteria, virus or other bio-hazard, the precise minimum dose needed to achieve the required reduction of that hazard must be well characterised and monitored in delivery. Three general types of system can be used for this task:

  • Very cost-effective systems monitored for a minimum lamp intensity that achieve a minimum delivered dose which is not defined
  • Cost-effective systems that have been referenced to known validations and therefore offer an assured bio-security, but without the absolute cost of a full validation
  • Costly systems that have been fully validated to monitor the precise dose delivered and the power of the system controlled to continually deliver that required dose

How UV disinfection works
UV is the part of the electromagnetic spectrum between visible light and X-rays. The specific portion of the UV spectrum between 185-400nm (known as UV-C) has a strong germicidal effect, with peak effectiveness at 265nm. At these wavelengths UV eliminates microorganisms by penetrating their cell membranes and damaging the DNA, making them unable to reproduce and effectively killing them.

A typical UV disinfection system for process water or liquid ingredient consists of a UV lamp housed in a protective quartz sleeve and mounted within a cylindrical stainless steel chamber. The liquid to be treated enters at one end and passes along the entire length of the chamber before exiting at the other end. Virtually any liquid can be effectively treated with UV, including raw mains water, filtered process water, viscous sugar syrups, beverages and effluent.

There are no microorganisms known to be resistant to UV; this includes pathogenic bacteria such as Listeria, Legionella and Cryptosporidium (and its spores, which are resistant to chlorination).

UV dose
The UV dose necessary for microbial deactivation varies from one species to another and is measured in millijoules per square centimetre (mJ/cm2). Values for specific microorganisms have been experimentally established and are used to determine the type and size of UV system required.

The dose received by an organism in a UV treatment system is dependent on four main factors:

1.    The energy output of the UV source
2.    The flow rate of the fluid through the treatment chamber
3.    The transmission value (ability to transmit UV light) of the fluid being treated
4.    The geometry of the treatment chamber

By optimising these criteria, a UV system can be tailored to effectively treat large or small flows, as well as viscous fluids or those containing dissolved solids and high levels of starch or sugar compounds.

UV technologies
There are two main types of UV technology based on the UV lamps used: low pressure and medium pressure. Low pressure lamps have a ‘monochromatic’ UV output (limited to a single wavelength at 254nm), whereas medium pressure lamps have a ‘polychromatic’ UV output (between 185-400nm).

As UV has no residual effect, the best position for a treatment system is immediately prior to the point of use. This ensures incoming microbiological contaminants are destroyed and there is a minimal chance of post-treatment contamination.

UV applications in the pharmaceutical, food and beverage industries
Direct contact water
Although municipal water supplies are normally free from harmful or pathogenic microorganisms, this should not be assumed. In addition, water from private sources such as natural springs or boreholes could also be contaminated. Any water used as an ingredient, or that comes in direct contact with the product, can therefore be a source of contamination. UV disinfects this water without chemicals or pasteurisation. It also allows the re-use of process water, saving money and improving productivity without risking the quality of the product.

CIP (Clean-in-Place) rinse water
It is essential that the CIP final rinse water used to flush out foreign matter and disinfecting solutions is microbiologically safe. Fully automated UV disinfection systems can be integrated with CIP rinse cycles to ensure final rinse water does not reintroduce microbiological contaminants.

Filter disinfection
Reverse osmosis (RO) and granular activated carbon (GAC) are often used to filter process water, but can be a breeding ground for bacteria. UV is an effective way of disinfecting both stored RO and GAC filtered water and has been used in the process industries for many years.

GAC filters are also often used to dechlorinate process water, removing the ‘off’ flavours often associated with chlorine disinfection, meaning the flavour of the final product remains untainted and free from unwanted flavours or odours. Placing UV systems ahead of GAC filters used for dechlorination improves the performance of the filters and results in longer carbon runs, so decreasing operating costs.

As the usual dose for removing free chlorine is 15 to 30 times higher than the normal disinfection dose, an important additional benefit of using UV dechlorination is a high level of UV disinfection, reduction in Total Organic Carbon (TOC) and improved overall water quality at point-of-use.

TOC reduction
Short UV wavelengths (below 200nm) are highly effective at breaking down organic molecules present in water, commonly known as Total Organic Carbon (TOC), especially low molecular weight contaminants. This works in two ways: the first method is by direct photolysis, when energy from the UV actually breaks down chemical bonds within the organics; the second method is by the photolysis of water molecules, splitting them to create charged OH- radicals, which also attack the organics.

Cooling media and chiller disinfection
Some meat and dairy products are subject to contamination after heat treatment or cooking. UV provides an excellent way to protect foods from contamination by contact-cooling fluids.

Sugar syrups
Sugar syrups can be a prime breeding ground for microorganisms. Although syrups with very high sugar content do not support microbial growth, any dormant spores may become active after the syrup has been diluted. Treating the syrup and dilution water with UV prior to use will ensure any dormant microorganisms are deactivated.

Liquid sweeteners
Sucrose-based sweeteners can be a prime breeding ground for microorganisms. UV systems are available specifically for treating these syrups.

De-aerated liquor
De-aerated liquor is added as part of a high gravity brewing process, often in the packaging operation. This liquor is added directly to the beer so needs to be kept free from contamination by gram negative bacteria, which can cause off-flavours and acidity.

Yeast preparation
The problems associated with yeast preparation in breweries are well recognised and include hazes, altered fermentation and surface membranes on packaged beer. A single cell of Sacchoromyces (var. Turbidans) in 16 million cells of pitching yeast will cause detectable hazes. UV destroys all known yeasts and their spores.

Waste water
Effluent from pharmaceutical, food and beverage facilities can be treated without the use of environmentally hazardous chemicals. This ensures all discharges meet with local environmental regulations. As already mentioned, because process water can be treated and re-used with UV, this also leads to a significant reduction in the amount of waste water produced.

Meeting the increasingly rigorous hygiene standards required in the production of pharmaceutical, food and beverage products is a real challenge. If improvements need to be made to plant and equipment, they need to bring quick returns on the investment and measurable improvements in product quality.

For manufacturers seeking to improve the quality of the end product and to ensure the bio-security of their process, UV is an economic, realistic option. It is already an established method of disinfecting drinking water throughout the world, and is already widely used for high purity applications where water of the highest quality is essential.

UV disinfection systems are easy to install, with minimum disruption to the plant. They need very little maintenance, the only requirement being replacement of the UV lamps every 9 – 12 months, depending on use. This is a simple operation that takes only a few minutes and can be carried out by general maintenance staff.
