October 31, 2019  By Hatchery International staff

Xylem’s new UV disinfection system presents a solution for aquaculture farms in saltwater and other harsh water conditions.

The global water technology company launched a new line of Wedeco Action PE ultraviolet (UV) disinfection system at the Aqua Nor 2019 conference that is designed for disinfection rates of more than 99.99 per cent.

The Acton PE system is made of high-quality polyethylene that is resistant to corrosion, perfect for high salinity conditions. Using high-power UV lamps (600 W/lamp), the system maintains ideal hygienic conditions for water intake, outflow and recirculation in order to prevent the growth of pathogenic bacteria, fungi and viruses.


“Rising demand for seafood has led to rapid growth and with that growth comes an increased need to control bacteria and biosecurity risk. With its combination of robust design, durable material and efficient lamp technology, our new Wedeco Acton PE system offers world-class reliability and cost-efficiency,” Peer Krueger, global UV product manager for Xylem’s Wedeco brand, said in a statement.
