Total Organic Carbon (TOC) is found in all water supplies as naturally occurring organic matter. Over many years of experience, medium or low pressure UV treatment has become recognised as an effective process step in the breakdown and reduction of TOC in water intended for use in pharmaceutical, health care, power generation and micro-electronics applications. In the latter case, ultra-pure water is used to wash silicon wafers on which even small deposits of carbon compounds on the wafers can severely affect their performance.

Drinking water supply and distribution systems around the world (a critical and interdependent component of a nation’s infrastructure) are vulnerable to both intentional and accidental contamination. Unusual water quality may serve as a warning of potential contamination. The available physico-chemical sensors utilize general water quality parameters, such as free chlorine, oxidation reduction potential (ORP), total organic carbon (TOC), turbidity, pH, dissolved oxygen, chloride, ammonia, nitrate to detect the contamination. Generally, one or more of these water quality parameters will change due to the injection of a contaminant. However, no single chemical sensor responds to all possible contaminants nor can they give any indication of the potential toxicity of complex mixtures.
