Extensively tested and sustainable
The Wedeco K series is a proven, energy-efficient UV solution for the disinfection of drinking water at large facilities whenever a closed-vessel UV system is preferred.
Xylem's Wedeco K series has demonstrated its ability with many installations worldwide for drinking water.
The K series UV system has also been extensively tested to meet the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s UV Disinfection Guidance Manual (USEPA’s UVDGM, 2006). The extensive validation allows for proven disinfection performance over a wide range of UV transmittance (UVT) values and a variety of target organisms including Adenovirus.
Additionally the sensor-controlled OptiDose monitors operating conditions in real time, including flow, UV transmittance, and UV intensity. Then, with proven control logic, OptiDose adjusts the energy consumption to the minimum needed to meet dosing requirements. No assumptions are made regarding process parameters, ensuring cost savings and disinfection confidence at all times.
As a purely physical disinfection solution and 100% chemical free, UV does not carry the risk of forming harmful by-products, such as trihalomethanes (THMs) and haloacetic acids (HAAs).
Replacing chlorine with UV reduces handling and transportation risks of chemicals, avoiding dangers for both plant operators and the environment. Xylem's Wedeco Ecoray lamps used by the K series also have reduced mercury content and consume less energy, further reducing the carbon footprint.
