ETS-UV™ For Dairy Applications

ETS-UV™ disinfection systems successfully demonstrate regulatory compliance with the Pasteurized Milk Ordinance (PMO) regulations. This establishes that our systems are an accepted process for the creation of pasteurized equivalent water for ultraviolet disinfection for use in dairy. UV is a viable and less costly alternative to the conventional pasteurization process. In addition, systems are validated for process water per USEPA UVDGM and NSF/ANSI Standard 61 for drinking water.

UV is a proven and safe alternative to chemical disinfection that will inactivate bacteria, molds, yeasts, viruses and parasites without compromising taste, color or odor of water.  ETS-UV disinfection systems allow manufactures to gain complete control over these potential contaminants.  Such control reduces the risk of costly production downtime, product recall, spoilage, and damage to brand equity, or even fatality.

Performance & Design Advantage

  • PMO Approved -  Systems meet all the requirements in the Grade A Pasteurized Milk Ordinance 2015 (Page 182+)
  • Validated Performance - Validated by an independent 3rd party for performance to USEPA UVDGM and NSF/ANSI Standard 61 for process water
  • Automatic Wiper - Wipers keep the optical path free from fouling lamps
  • Superior Design - Chambers are designed using emulation models to achieve the lowest head loss
  • Quality Materials - Chambers are constructed of material that will withstand the powerful effects of the UV process and will not produce harmful carcinogenic byproducts
  • Data Logging & Reporting - Built in data collection and reporting that is compliant with PMO guidelines
  • Energy Efficient - Variable power delivers dose with precision
  • Flexible Design - Systems can be installed directly into existing pipework vertically or horizontally 

 Maintenance & Operational Advantage

  • Quick Replacement - Wiper rings can be replaced without removing wiping carriage from chamber
  • Small Maintenance Space Required - Single sided access for lamp replacement
  • Safety - Plug and play connections, lamps utilize a twist lock plug connection that automatically centers the lamp, UV light and electricity are isolated with a water tight connection

Product Design and Continuous Improvement

We believe that good design should make products safe, understandable, innovative and useful. Through the continued relationship of service, we examine wear throughout the product lifecycle and rely on Field Service Technician feedback on product improvement.  We also utilize a variety of design tools that provide emulation of system performance. This has led to many of the innovative features that have been a source of advantage.

  • Emulate the performance of UV systems by using advanced software tools
  • Use Finite Element Analysis (FEA) to understand how the UV chambers will become stressed under hydraulic pressure
  • Predict weakness in design with Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)
