In greenhouse horticulture UV-C disinfection is used traditionally in ‘ebb-and-flow systems’. In view of the low UV transmittance, so-called thin-film reactors are used for this purpose. We are proud to have designed a system for this in cooperation with Hortimax, a major player in this market. Hortimax is among the top three suppliers of process automation in horticulture, in which they have been active for more than half a century now.
Aquaculture is rapidly growing throughout the world, in response to the large demand for fish and other sea food. UV disinfection is used especially for preventing and curing fish diseases. A relatively recent development is the farming of seaweed, for animal feed, human food or non-food applications.
