ESCO International provides a comprehensive range of low and medium pressure UV systems for all industrial, municipal and commercial applications.

Our high output low pressure (254 nm and 185 nm) UV systems use high efficiency electronic ballasts which results in light and compact UV panel design, guarantees optimal UV output and increases lamp life. UV chambers can be offered as horizontal or vertical construction.

Our cross flow, inline medium pressure UV systems use a wide spectrum of useful UV wavelengths with a very high energy output which causes total and permanent deactivation of micro-organisms, avoiding photo reactivation.
The UV lamp high energy output significantly reduces the size of the irradiation chamber and the quantity of lamps. The cross flow, in-line UV system design results in a very compact unit, a low headloss and an overall small foot-print compared to conventional medium UV systems.

Applications:

  • Water and wastewater disinfection
  • Biological fluids disinfection
  • Toc reduction (ultra pure water applications)
  • Synthetic photo-chemistry
  • Biological fluids disinfection
  • Photochemical oxidation processes
  • Swimming pools & spas
  • Ozone destruction
  • Chlorine removal
  • Chloramines elimination

Advanced oxidation technologies are those processes which involve powerful oxidizing agents such as hydroxyl free radicals to efficiently oxidise a wide range of organic compounds found in water and gas effluents. The chemical reactions involved in advanced oxidation processes are billions of times faster than oxidation that takes place in the environment.

ESCO International offers turn key advanced oxidation processes (AOP) for water and gas treatment applications. Our AOP design is most often used to treat challenging or specific organic compounds from water and cost effectively reduces TOC and COD.

Based on our applications know-how and field experience, we design turn-key AOP systems of all sizes. From detailed engineering, manufacturing, assembling and maintenance we offer custom designed advanced oxidation systems.

ESCO International’s advanced oxidation process design is a concept based on the integration of different process steps into a fully engineered master AOP system.

CATADOX – the next generation of Advanced Oxidation Processes for water and gas treatment

An innovative advanced oxidation process developed by ESCO International is set to improve the efficiency of conventional AOP systems, bringing cost benefits for water treatment companies and industry.

The new CATADOX (AOP technology) uses a refined advanced oxidation technique that combines ozone, UV, hydrogen peroxide and a proprietary catalyst.

Advanced oxidation Pilot Plant – the right solution first time

ESCO International’s self-contained AOP pilot plant enables our engineers to experiment with and test the technology before committing to full implementation.

Our advanced oxidation pilot plant will ensure that the most efficient and engineered commercial process is installed in an effective and sound design. This means that the right solution is designed and installed every time.

For new applications or challenging contamination, ESCO International can provide laboratory services to test your water sample using our scaled-down laboratory AOP and ozone pilot systems. Based on laboratory results and existing pilot and field data, collected during the past few years, we can reliably determine the most suitable advanced oxidation system design for your full-scale application.

In these projects we take care of all steps from design to start-up and service and maintenance. The advanced oxidation systems are designed to treat all types of contaminated waters and waste waters.

ESCO International’s advanced oxidation process design is a concept based on the integration of different process steps into a fully engineered master AOP system.
