Hanovia is launching its new PureLine Ultraviolet Energy Optimised (UVEO) disinfection system in the Middle East region at the Dubai Drink Technology Expo (DDTE) on May 16.

Designed for disinfecting process water in the food, beverage and brewing industries, the launch will be at booth C41, where Hanovia and its local distributor, Water Engineering Technology (WET) are exhibiting. The DDTE is being held at the Dubai Convention & Exhibition Centre between May 16-18.

Commenting on the launch Halim Mirza, Hanovia’s MEA Manager, said: “Ensuring product quality in the beverage production process, while also being price conscious, can be a difficult balancing act for producers. They need to know that the disinfection technology they’re using is fit for purpose and will protect the product from pathogens such as Cryptosporidium or bacteria like E.coli. At the same time they need to balance the cost of that technology with the financial realities.

“Hanovia’s PureLine UVEO range ticks both boxes, as it offers a very high level of biosecurity while also reducing operational costs. It achieves this by using less energy while still delivering effective water disinfection at required flows with a single medium pressure lamp. It provides effective treatment at the required flows using just one UV lamp, with up to 60% less power usage than conventional UV systems.

“With customers becoming more conscious about energy saving, the PureLine UVEO range lines up with green initiatives, providing a critical barrier against contamination by non-chemical means. Using the system at particular points in the water treatment process also allows customers to also prolong the life of other components, such as reverse osmosis (RO) filters, by eliminating the risk of downstream contamination. All in all, PureLine UVEO technology provides a more effective barrier and is optimised for the industry,” he added.

PureLine UVEO systems come in two ranges for water disinfection:
•    The ‘H’ Edition is designed specifically to meet the highly stringent food, beverage and brewing industry regulations. All wetted parts use food grade-approved materials, while a UV chamber with a high specification internal finish is available if required.
•    The ‘Standard’ edition, which provides required levels of disinfection and prevents downstream contamination before reverse osmosis (RO) filters and at the point of use.

“The Middle East region is a very important for Hanovia and we are strengthening our position here through partners such as WET, who we are sharing a booth with at the show. We have a growing list of reference sites in the region that attest to the effectiveness of our technology. We therefore encourage visitors to visit our booth and find out more about how our PureLine UVEO technology can help,” added Mr Mirza.

All Hanovia UVEO systems are provided with its patented ‘UVGuard’, which allows safe checking of the UV sensor (performance monitoring instrument) using a unique ‘eyelid shutter’ design, which protects the operator from exposure to UV light.

Hanovia’s PureLine Ultraviolet Energy Optimised (UVEO) medium pressure UV system uses up to 60% less power than conventional UV systems with just a single UV lamp. This delivers a guaranteed, consistent UV dose with reduced life cycle costs for the food, beverage and brewing industries.

Energy and cost reductions
Building on Hanovia’s 90 years’ experience in UV treatment, the PureLine UVEO takes advantage of an optimised hydraulic design to provide up to 60% improvement in the treatment capacity over conventional medium pressure UV systems. This means reduced running costs without compromising on bio-security.

A prime benefit is that treatment is performed with just a single medium pressure UV lamp, eliminating the need to install a bigger system with multiple lamps at higher flows. This saves on up front capital costs and lifetime spares costs.

The system utilises a smart control system that reads the process water conditions using flow, transmittance and chlorine sensors to control the electronic ballast with ‘stepless’ power, which can then automatically adjust the power from 100% to 30%. This feature helps increase the life of the medium pressure lamp and provides further savings on power costs.

Designed for the food and beverage industries
PureLine UVEO systems come in three ranges:

  • The ‘H’ Edition is designed specifically to meet the highly stringent food, beverage and brewing industry regulations. All wetted parts use food grade-approved materials, while a UV chamber with a high specification internal finish is available if required
  • The ‘Standard’ edition, which provides required levels of disinfection and prevents downstream contamination before reverse osmosis (RO) filters and at the point of use
  • The ‘Dechlor’ edition, based on either H or Standard chamber designs, which provides guaranteed levels of dechlorination coupled with strong disinfection to protect downstream processes such as Reverse Osmosis (RO) from premature aging and biofouling

Medium pressure UV lamps provide the highest possible UV output at the specific wavelengths required to destroy microorganisms. Medium pressure UV is especially effective against chlorine-resistant pathogens such as Cryptosporidium and Giardia. Reduced reliance on chlorine helps protect downstream contamination of filters early on in the water treatment process. Medium pressure UV is also very effective at removing ozone from process water, ensuring product quality before bottling.

UVEO technology provides the food, beverage and brewing industries with optimised UV systems in line with requirements. The PureLine UVEO’s chamber size, lamp power and control systems have been tested to ensure not only that high levels of process water disinfection are achieved, but also that green initiatives are met by lowering power consumption.

Safe, easy maintenance
The PureLine UVEO is provided with Hanovia’s patented ‘UVGuard’, which allows safe checking of the UV sensor (performance monitoring instrument) using a unique ‘eyelid shutter’ design, which protects the operator from exposure to UV light.

The UV system is available in a range of sizes and treatment capacities to meet typical process requirements. It is designed for easy installation into existing pipework and can be fitted with an internal auto-wiper which maintains UV output efficiency by regularly cleaning the quartz sleeve housing the UV lamp. Lamp replacement is also quick and easy, with the system designed to allow easy access, even in small plant rooms.

To disinfect water in the winemaking process, Brown Brothers winery in Victoria, Australia has installed a Hanovia ultraviolet (UV) disinfection system. The system was installed by Fluidquip Australia, Hanovia’s local partner.

One of Australia’s leading family-owned wine companies, Brown Brothers has been making wine in Victoria for over 120 years. Over this time it has established a reputation as one of Australia’s most innovative wine producers.

Being a fourth generation family winery, it’s seen many changes in the Australian wine industry, yet the cornerstone of its success remains as a varietal wine specialist and winemaking innovator.

With this mantra in mind, the company selected Hanovia UV disinfection to treat the water needed for its wine-making process. UV delivers the most secure and environmentally friendly water disinfection available, with the UV-treated water used for bottle washing, process water, QC, laboratory water and just about anything else where clean and bio-secure water is required throughout the winery.

In 2009 Brown Brothers updated its existing UV water disinfection system to the latest Hanovia AF3 UV system. “Our Hanovia UV system has worked perfectly since we installed it in 2009. We routinely get a zero (bacterial) count after the UV. It wasn’t always that way – our old UV system would often return counts for bacteria of 40, 80 or sometimes even 100 CFU (Colony Forming Units),” says Steve Dows from Brown Brothers.

The Hanovia UV disinfection system safeguards Brown Brothers’ water from the risk of water-borne micro-organisms such as bacteria, viruses, yeasts and moulds, as well as harmful protozoa such as Cryptosporidium and Giardia, which are chlorine-resistant. It does this with no effect on the water’s pH, colour or taste, ensuring there is no impact on the quality, flavour or aroma of the wine, which is important when you are producing gold medal winning wines.

“Chlorine is a no-no anywhere in the wine making process as it can affect the taste of the wine,” adds Steve.

Brown Brothers use a deep bore as its water supply and positions the Hanovia UV disinfection system after 0.04 micron filters. UV disinfection has the advantage of using no chemicals and it introduces no disinfection by-products into the process. It is effective against all known microbes.

After being awarded several gold medals in the Royal Melbourne Wine Show in 2012, it’s clear that Brown Brothers continue to lay claim as one of Australia’s most iconic winemaking success stories.

Malaysian Soft Drink Manufacturer uses Hanovia UV to Remove Bacteria from Process Water

F&N logo

UV disinfection system installed after dechlorination unit

F&N Beverages Manufacturing Sdn Bhd in Malaysia has installed a Hanovia UV disinfection system at its state-of-the-art manufacturing plant in Inanam, Kota Kinabalu. The Hanovia UV system is installed after an activated carbon dechlorination unit and is used to eliminate bacteria from water used in the soft drinks manufacturing process.

F&N is Malaysia’s largest soft drinks manufacturer, producing many of the country’s most well-known brands, including 100PLUS, F&N Fruit Tea and F&N SEASONS. The company’s brand promise is ‘Pure Enjoyment, Pure Goodness’, so quality is uppermost in all its manufacturing processes.

UV technology is required for this application to fulfil local QA/QC (quality assurance/quality control) requirements. Hanovia was selected as the UV system supplier due to the company’s reputation in the beverage industry and the fact that its UV systems are optimised for process water applications such as those found in beverage manufacturing. Added benefits for the customer included low operating and maintenance costs.

The benefits of UV
Meeting the increasingly rigorous hygiene standards required in the beverage industries 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, UV is an economic, realistic option. It is an established method of disinfecting drinking water throughout the world, and is also widely used for high purity applications such as pharmaceutical processing and microchip manufacturing, where water of the highest quality is essential.

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 disinfection systems are also 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.

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.

HeaventlySpa_Bali_blog

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.
