Disinfection is a common process used at the back end of many treatment methods to remove pathogenic organisms from the treated effluent.

There are a number of options available for the disinfection phase; including ultraviolet disinfection, chlorination and ozone treatment. Aerofloat is happy to facilitate a client’s preferred technique.

As part of a new treatment plant or a stand-alone addition to an existing facility, contact Aerofloat today to discuss your disinfection options.

Either liquid or gaseous chlorine can be dosed into the treated effluent to kill pathogenic organisms. Chlorine is a very strong oxidising agent and offers a comparatively simple process for disinfection. Chlorination is used extensively in common household swimming pools and in biological sewage treatment plants and water treatment facilities.

Discuss your disinfection options today with one of Aerofloat’s expert wastewater treatment engineers.

Ultraviolet (UV) Disinfection

Treated effluent is subjected to UV light to kill any residual microorganisms or pathogens in the water. It is typically used to disinfect sewage effluent or potable water. One of the benefits of UV disinfection is that it does not leave any residual chlorine.

As a stand-alone add-on or as part of a new treatment facility or upgrade, contact Aerofloat today to discuss your disinfection options.

Ozone Disinfection

Ozone can be generated and mixed with the treated wastewater. The high oxidising nature of ozone disinfects the effluent in a similar way to chlorination. As with UV, ozone disinfection does not leave any residual chlorine.

Contact Aerofloat’s expert engineers today to discuss if ozone disinfection is the right fit for you.
