The process of disinfecting water with UV light is a proven technology for drinking and process water in many industries, however the high standards required by the offshore industry command these systems to be engineered way beyond the normal specification of many manufacturers.
When a leading offshore contractor based in Malaysia required two high specification ATEX systems for operation in Zone II Hazardous Areas, they called upon the market leaders for the offshore industry atg UV Technology to develop and design a system capable of meeting their demands.
Working closely with leading UK manufacturer Extronics, specialist in providing ATEX standard components for use in harsh and hazardous environments such as oil rigs and ocean going shipping vessels, atg UV engineered a bespoke duty-stand-by package for the disinfection of potable drinking water.
The atg package comprised of two UVL-2200-6 reactors built from 316 stainless steel, arranged in a duty/ assist/standby configuration with two integrated SPECTRA control systems to ensure the system was a true duty-stand-by package, ensuring full automatic control of the disinfection process at all times.
The SPECTRA was housed within an Extronics Exd control panel, designed especially for use within hazardous environments. Using microprocessor technology, SPECTRA combines many innovative features such as fully automatic start-up and shut down, multiple lamp monitoring and process interlocks. Additionally an Extronics Exe Junction Box was added to complete the atg UV ATEX package design that will now provide clean and safe drinking water to offshore crews worldwide.
atg UV, with over 25yrs of experience and achievement, is a world leader in Ultraviolet technology. Strong commitment to innovation and development means that atg's range of UV products offers customers the best choice available for when quality, reliability and consistency need to come as standard. These products, plus service, support and spares are available now from atg UV Technology and distributors worldwide.
