Aquariums, zoos and fish farms

Our UVOX systems also provide an optimal solution for intensive animal husbandry in tanks and aquariums. Stressed animals are far more vulnerable to illness and infections.

With our trendsetting UVOX systems we are able to guarantee a natural environment for your fish and water animals without the use of chemicals.

If, however, chemicals are mandatory, we are able to minimise the negative effect of certain chemicals and many other undesired organic substances.

The UVOX UV- Ozone water purification combines the disinfecting effect of UV-light on pathogens with the oxidising effect of ozon and OH Radicals on organic compounds.

Benefits of the UVOX System:
  • safe and natural water
  • crystal clear water without algae
  • crystal clear water without algae
  • improvement in the smell and taste of the water
  • indepth sight of up to 2 meters
  • no change to the pH value
  • no formation of noxious byproducts
  • increase of the oxygen content
  • economical and ecological water purification
  • cost savings due to minimum water and energy consumption
  • minimum maintenance without endangering the water quality
  • amortisation of the equipment within 3-5 years

The UVOX water purification process:

The UVOX process combines the disinfecting effect of ultraviolet light with the oxidising effect of OH radicals on organic dissolved matter. 

UVOX Redox waterpurification leads to an:

  • UV-Disinfection of up to 99,90% of all germs
  • Ozone Oxidation / Ozonation
  • Advanced Oxidation with OH Radicals resulting in:
    • Reduction of toxic compound (s.u. Amoniak, Amonium, Nitrite, Nitrate, Medicine and Pesticides).
    • Nitrification and Denitrification
    • TOC/ TOC reduction
    •  Increase of oxygen content.
The DNA of microorganisms is damaged by a certain dosage of ultraviolet light. Bacteria, viruses and algae are deactivated effectively and are unable to reproduce in future.

Ultraviolet light is a natural disinfection agent against all fish, seal and penguin pathogenic germs such as VHS, IPN, IPA, UDN, PKD, furunculosis and vibrio.

The Advanced Oxidation Process (A.O.P.) leads to an efficient TOC / DOC reduction and many other perstistant substances.

The taste, smell and colour of the water are improved considerably due to the oxidation of undesired dissolved matter. This leads to natural water without noxious byproducts.

The UVOX Redox  reaction chambers are made of polyethylene. Polyethylene is particularly suitable for the water purification of  fresh water and sea water and other highly corrosive media.
