New guide to water system disinfection

The WCS Group has launched a new guide to water-based disinfection control, highlighting the different methods of preventing bacterial proliferation and their pros and cons.

WCS Group's new guide to water-based disinfection control

Suitable for a range of sectors where clean water matters, the guide covers options for healthcare, food & beverage, leisure and hospitality, manufacturing and more.

Every industry has its own set of challenges and priorities when it comes to water hygiene and WCS's guide aims to address each method's characteristics, comparing commonly used options based on a range of parameters - from the effectiveness of the disinfection, to safety considerations and environmental impact.

Chris Abraham, critical services marketing director for the WCS Group explained: “Where humans are in contact with water, their safety is of course the main priority, but in applications where a system is closed, for example, this concern can come lower down the list. Protecting your water and water system, acts as a handy reference document, which with the support of water treatment experts will help responsible parties make informed decisions about the type of disinfection control required for their particular application.”

Disinfection methods covered:

  • Chlorination (Liquid)
  • Electrolytic Chlorine Generation
  • Chlorine Dioxide Generation
  • Ozonation
  • Ultraviolet Light (UV)
  • Ultralox – a low concentration form of chlorine

Considerations covered:

  • Advantages & limitations
  • Processes
  • Equipment
  • Chemical make-up and quantity
  • Suitable applications
