Atlantium’s Hydro-Optic™ (HOD) UV technology is designed to achieve 4-log virus microbiological inactivation levels: hydraulic and fiber-optic principles are integrated with the simplicity and effectiveness of UV light disinfection.

Atlantium’s innovative HOD UV solutions have ensured water safety across aquaculture, beverage, biopharma, food, general industry, hydro, municipal, and power markets. The system’s innovative approach to control, monitoring and performance has achieved unparalleled results where conventional UV has not been effective.

Enhanced Hydro-Optic™ (HOD) UV Light

  • Medium pressure high-intensity HOD UV lamps enable fewer UV lamps per system
  • Medium pressure UV lamps provide a broad germicidal spectrum of polychromatic UV light (200-415 nm)
  • Lamps are protected by a quartz sleeve 5 times thicker than conventional quartz sleeves
  • Significantly reduced lamp-related maintenance
  • Quick and easy lamp replacement, does not require emptying of the water lines or depressurization
  • HOD UV systems feature the unique Total Internal Reflection (TIR) technology that recycles UV light energy, ensures homogenous UV dose distribution and provides superior power (kW) efficiency compared to traditional UV.

Real-Time Lamp Performance Monitoring

  • Dedicated UV sensor for each HOD UV lamp (feature unique to HOD UV technology)
  • Continuously monitors HOD UV lamp output
  • Ensures delivery of required UV dose at all times

Advanced Control Systems

  • Continuously displays UVT, flow, power and UV dose
  • Provides real-time data on operation and efficacy
  • Features built-in data logging, up to six months
  • Integrates with the control SCADA system
  • Easy integration with the control SCADA system
  • Customized with user settings for alarm signals

Real-Time Water Quality Monitoring

  • Integrated UV transmittance (UVT) sensor on each HOD UV system
  • Continuously monitors UVT%
  • Optimizes system performance for actual, not estimated, UVT% levels

Markets Served

AQUACULTURE
Ensuring microbiologically safe water that safeguards land-based aquaculture facilities from threats to fish production in both make-up and RAS applications, HOD UV treats fresh and sea water intakes and provides protection against a wide variety of microorganisms, including some of the toughest pathogens and viruses, such as IPN, Pox-virus, Moritella and Tenacibaculum. With HOD UV, facilities can reach production stability and establish a controlled growth environment with a proven and highly efficient approach to ensure water biosecurity and protect against microorganisms.

BALLAST WATER
Purestream™ proprietary UV ballast water management system (BWMS) uses filtration in combination with Atlantium’s proven medium pressure ultraviolet (UV) technology to achieve unparalleled results. The Purestream system is validated to operate at minimum retention times (≤24-hours) following treatment of 100% of the maximum flow under difficult water conditions with UV transmittance as low as 40% UVT.

BIOPHARMA
​Pharmaceutical facilities looking for a highly efficient non-chemical solution to prevent bacterial growth and associated biofouling can rely on the proven performance of the HOD UV technology for disinfection and dechlorination.

FOOD & BEVERAGE
​Achieve process control and water safety without the use of chemicals with HOD UV which does not impart a residual taste or odor to affect product flavor. Validated to regulatory standards for EPA and FDA with accredited validation for 4-log virus and 5-log microbial inactivation, HOD UV provides effective disinfection and biofouling control through automated operation and compliance reporting.

GENERAL INDUSTRY
​Providing facilities with an energy efficient disinfection solution for hot water system and non-chemical control of pathogenic organisms such a Legionella. It eliminates the potential of corrosion and disinfection byproducts formation associated with chemical disinfection while also positively effecting heat exchanger performance.

HYDRO
​A proven biofouling control solution for invasive mussels in hydroelectric facilities with the ability to achieve 100% inactivation even under conditions with less than 50% UVT. Control invasive mussels that clog cooling water pipping and fire control systems and protect turbines and heat exchangers from mussel fouling with the HOD UV technology.

MUNICIPAL
​Water treatment plants can achieve water biosecurity without the use of chemicals with the HOD UV technology that is validated to regulatory standards for EPA with accredited validation for 4-log virus and 5-log microbial inactivation. HOD UV provides effective disinfection and biofouling control, automated operation and compliance reporting is available to support facilities.

POWER
​Protect boiler feed make-up water from bacterial growth and associated biofouling; extend micron filter and RO membrane life; improve heat exchanger performance; and improve permeate quality and quantity with HOD UV for non-chemical disinfection and dechlorination.
