BDD disinfection is a well proven, established technology.
In the field of fresh and process water treatment BDD electrodes can be used to disinfect
- fresh water, sea water
- cooling water
- pure water (RO/DI) for production
- waste water with biological contamination
One interesting application is the disinfection of cooling water. To date, this water is treated with liquid biocides, which leads to high costs in occupational health and safety.
BDD electrodes produce ozone and free chlorine, using water and the dissolved salts as a resource.
Another application is the disinfection of pure water (RO/DI): where UV lamps have just a local effect, BDD’s produce ozone „in situ“ and disinfect also pipes and vessels, thus preventing the formation of biofilms.
