Overview

Product Features
  • Optimal for safe and cost-efficient disinfection in aquaculture and fish farms, aquaria, zoos, swimming pools and other saltwater applications
  • Made of high quality polyethylene HD-PE (PE 100) which is non-corrosive and very reliable in harsh water conditions
  • Covers flow rates of up to 829m3/h in just one single reactor
  • Wedeco EcoRay® lamp technology guarantees 14,000 operating hours per lamp
  • Easy retrofit for various standardized installation options and flange positions

Wedeco Acton PE is a closed UV disinfection reactor designed to withstand the corrosive conditions in applications like aquaculture farms, aquaria, saltwater thermal pools and well boats. It is made of polyethylene HD-PE (PE100) to endure saltwater and biological elements in such environments, guaranteeing resiliency and performance also in demanding conditions.

Excellent disinfection rate

The Wedeco Acton PE ensures aquaculture biosecurity and maintains ideal hygienic conditions for water intake, outflow and recirculation to prevent growth of pathogenic bacteria, fungi and viruses. This guarantees higher productivity rate, lower fish mortality and better quality fish.

High capacity at low energy consumption

The Acton PE uses Wedeco EcoRay® lamps. This technology provides high power per lamp (600 W) and emits proportionally high UVC in both dimmed mode and at high power level, allowing for significant energy savings. The sensor-driven OptiDose function monitors real-time conditions and optimizes the dose to meet current demand.

Flexibility and easy operation

The Acton PE covers high flows up to 829 m³/h in one single reactor. It allows for various standardized installation options and fl ange positions. Lamp replacement is easy and does not require any tools. Thanks to the high power per lamp, fewer lamps are needed and associated maintenance is reduced. Acton PE units are equipped with the unique EcoTouch controller with a user-friendly graphic touch panel, optionally connecting to SCADA systems (via bus).

Designed to last

The Acton PE is made of high quality polyethylene which is non-corrosive and very reliable in harsh water conditions. The design, including lamps and quartz sleeves, is tested for rough conditions and vibration. The EcoRay® lamp technology guarantees 14,000 operating hours per lamp.

Proven technology

Xylem has decades of experience of providing UV systems to the aquaculture industry. UV has been proven highly effective against aquaculture-specific pathogens, e.g. ISA virus and Aeromonas salmonicida, without negative effects on the process water quality.
