Products

Leveraging the experience of more than 250,000 systems installed worldwide, Xylem’s Wedeco brand manufactures reliable, chemical-free, and environmentally-friendly water and wastewater treatment technologies, including ultraviolet (UV) disinfection and ozone oxidation systems. Wedeco systems accommodate customer needs according to their individual requirements, whether it’s eliminating microorganisms in wastewater, disinfecting public drinking water, or treating process water for industrial purposes.

Industries & Applications

Xylem offers a range of advanced wastewater and water solutions to help operators around the world achieve their required water effluent while delivering optimal performance, reliable operations and substantial energy savings no matter what industry or application. Working with customers, Xylem listens, learns, and adapts to local environments, ensuring the best possible design, customized to meet their specific needs. Below are some recommended industries and applications.

Municipal Wastewater

Municipal Wastewater

Harnessing the power that nature uses to cleanse the rivers and streams – air, microbes, gravity, light – the wastewater industry has revolutionized sanitation and brought health to their communities, rivers, streams, lakes and oceans. Through Xylem’s broad portfolio and expertise, customer needs are evaluated and the right solution provided with low life cycle costs. When the water leaves the plant, it is no longer wastewater, but a highly valuable resource.

 

Municipal Potable Water

Municipal Potable Water

Water utilities have to do more with less, and it’s not easy. They must conserve energy, make the most of every drop of water, use staff most efficiently to hold down costs, while meeting stricter requirements and improving quality. Xylem develops innovations to make processes and equipment more energy efficient, more reliable, more water efficient, and easier to operate.

Aquaculture

Aquaculture

Aquaculture accounts for 50 percent of the fish consumed globally. Reliance on aquaculture is expected to continue to increase, at several times the growth rate of other meat production. This growing reliance on aquaculture presents huge opportunities, but also increases risks for producers. Xylem offers processes vital to aquaculture success including disinfection of circulated water is essential to maintaining fish health, heat exchangers help maintain water temperatures within optimal ranges and a full complement of pumps.

Food & Beverage

Food & Beverage

With global population continuing to grow, feeding the world sustainably is a worldwide challenge. Water is at the center of this concern, as food production is the largest single consumer of water. Reducing the water footprint of food production is a central goal of the food and beverage industry. Xylem can assist in optimizing and managing every stage of a production facility’s water cycle. Customers utilize the complete water cycle solutions, such as energy efficient Flygt pumps to transport water throughout the facility, along with industry-leading Leopold filtration technologies, Sanitaire biological treatment and Wedeco disinfection and oxidation systems.

 

Marine

Marine

Marine environments are harsh. Whether on a merchant ship, naval vessel, or an offshore platform, space is at a premium, with scant room for spares for every process or piece of equipment. Shutting down is not an option, so the equipment selected must be rugged and proven reliable. Xylem’s portfolio of products paired with process engineering expertise provides solutions that are energy efficient, effective and most of all, reliable.

Pharmaceuticals

Pharmaceuticals

From feedwater, through internal treatment to generate pharmaceutical grade water, to final discharge, water is critical to pharmaceutical manufacturing. Treatments must meet the standards of the relevant pharmacopeias for the intended use of the water, with different pharmaceutical grades requiring different treatments from purified water (PW) to highly purified water (HPW) to the highest purity of water for injection (WFI). With Xylem treatment processes, safe, sustainable water practices can be achieved throughout the manufacture and through final discharge.

Pulp & Paper

Pulp & Paper

Xylem has been collaborating with pulp and paper manufacturers for over two decades, to incorporate the most advanced, energy efficient and easy to operate ozone systems into their processes. Xylem’s Wedeco brand developed the Z-Compact System specifically to address the needs of the pulp and paper industry, combining reliability and energy efficiency with a compact configuration and plug and play systems for quick installation and start up. For wastewater treatment, Sanitaire provides ozone dissolution equipment for suspended biological treatment systems. Leopold’s biofiltration process, combining ozone, breaks down and treats even the most difficult COD.

 

About Wedeco

About Wedeco

Wedeco was founded in 1976 in Herford, Germany to develop chemical-free and environmentally friendly water treatment technologies, including ultraviolet light and ozone systems. There are more than 250,000 installed Wedeco systems for UV disinfection and ozone oxidation globally in private, public utility and industrial locations. Wedeco introduced ozone technology in 1988 and has been expanding internationally ever since. UV disinfection systems have a number of applications including water treatment and aquaculture. Ozone disinfection systems have applications in drinking water, wastewater, process water, product polishing, bleaching, ozonolysis / synthesis and deodorization.

Wedeco UV systems offer customers an alternative to environmentally-harmful chemicals used for disinfection including chlorine, chlorine dioxide, and hypochlorite. UV disinfection is adapted from the natural action of sunlight and is extremely versatile. UV light can be used for disinfecting water, destroying harmful microorganisms in other liquids, on surfaces, and in the air. Wedeco UV systems are suited for the disinfection of drinking water, process water, wastewater, salt water, ultrapure water, and other translucent fluids, such as sugar syrup.

Ozone is one of the strongest industrially producible oxidizing agents, and is commonly used for the treatment of water in municipal and industrial applications. The special advantage of ozone is the environmentally-friendly way in which it works. Harmful substances, colors, odors, and microorganisms are destroyed directly by oxidation, without the formation of harmful, chlorinated by-products. Apart from the treatment of drinking water and wastewater, Xylem’s Wedeco ozone systems are used in bleaching processes, such as paper bleaching, as well as in other industrial oxidation processes. 

Xylem’s Wedeco brand also offers Advanced Oxidation Process (AOP) solutions that are intended to eliminate a wide variety of toxic compounds and microscopic pollutants. Xylem’s Wedeco pre-engineered AOP systems are based on three key components – ozone, hydrogen peroxide, and UV light generated by low-pressure, high-intensity lamp technology. By combining these technologies, Xylem is able to meet customer’s individual requirements.
