The Spektron Industrial models are specifically designed to meet the most stringent disinfection requirements of the food and beverage industry. The vessel’s inner surface, aseptic connections and solid stainless steel cabinet are features that ensure a high level of quality and consistency in taste and appearance. The systems are also suitable for sensitive applications in pharmaceutical and microelectronics industries.
The Wedeco Spektron Industrial system range is based on Xylem’s Wedeco Spektron technology, a proven, energy-efficient UV solution for the disinfection of drinking water, process water, and other high UV transmittance liquids, with more than 2,000 installed systems worldwide. The Wedeco Spektron drinking water UV systems have also been extensively tested to meet the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s UV Disinfection Guidance Manual (USEPA’s UVDGM, 2006) and certified to the German DVGW and Austrian ONORM standards.
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.
For improved economics and maximum sustainability, Spektron units employ Wedeco low-pressure, high-output, amalgam Ecoray UV lamps and ballasts. Used in combination with the variable power option, the Ecoray technology results in excellent energy efficiency under all operating conditions. Particularly in dimmed mode, they realize average energy savings of up to 20% compared to existing technologies. The Ecoray lamp also has higher energy efficiency compared to medium pressure lamps, further reducing energy costs. Thanks to reduced mercury content, Ecoray lamps are also more stable and sustainable - an environmentally friendly feature of Spektron units that can help reduce the carbon footprint. Ecoray UV lamps come with a lamp life guarantee up to 14,000 hours, reducing lamp maintenance.
The Spektron Industrial UV systems offer four different sizes, allowing adaptation to the customer’s flow range.
The Wedeco Spektron UV systems maximize operator usability with minimum maintenance. The EcoTouch controller unifies all sensor signals, alarms, SCADA connectivity, and OptiDose closed loop control for easy monitoring and control.
