Time to relax while saving money! Enaqua’s Non-Contact UV disinfection systems are designed so that the water does not make contact with quartz glass, or any of the electronics. With no quartz sleeves to replace, no extra cleaning apparatus and no need for chemicals in the cleaning process, the man hours for maintenance and cost of replacement parts is a small fraction of traditional Ultraviolet (UV) treatment costs. The intelligence in Enaqua’s solutions further provide significant energy savings.
The tubes through which the water flows in Enaqua’s UV disinfection system are produced using a fouling resistant AFP™ (Activated Fluoropolymer) material that has been specifically designed for the purpose. The tubes have a fouling resistant smooth surface and are robust, flexible, chemically stable and fracture resistant which allow for years of guaranteed UV disinfection performance. The tubes are permanently integrated into the Enaqua’s UV disinfection system and never need to be replaced under normal operating conditions.
Longevity in Design
Reduced Man Hours
Enaqua's UV disinfection system is highly self-cleaning due to the turbulent flow of the water in the tubes and the smooth surface of the AFP™ tubes. Cleaning of Enaqua's UV disinfection systems is therefore extremely simple to perform.
Fouling Resistant AFP™ Tubes
Enaqua’s UV disinfection systems are designed with fouling resistant AFP™ tubes that resist mineral scaling. The design therefore allows for reliable disinfection without expensive and labor intensive techniques such as chemicals, special designed cleaning apparatus or disassembling. Transportation, storage, and handling of toxic chemicals is rendered obsolete with Enaqua's Non-Contact UV solution reducing the cleaning costs significantly.
NO NEED FOR cleaning mechanism and chemicals
Quick Lamp Replacement
Changing lamps in Enaqua’s Non-Contact UV disinfection system is similar to changing a fluorescent lamp in an office lamp fixture. This is due to the fact that Enaqua’s UV lamps are not submerged in water and therefore do not have to be covered in quartz-sleeves, which simplifies the total system design. Each lamp takes less than 1 minute to change and does not require interruption of the hydraulic flow, shut down, or bypassing of the UV system.

Low Lamp Expenses
Enaqua’s UV treatment costs are kept low with the use of Non-Amalgam Low Pressure High Output (LPHO) lamps. These lamps are considerably less expensive and allow for a more robust ballast design.
