"UV disinfection now within reach for every horticultural business"

The introduction of Priva Vialux M-Line puts water disinfection with UV light within reach for every horticultural business. UV disinfection allows for major improvements in the field of disease control, efficient water use and the increasingly strict requirements for food hygiene.

The Priva Vialux M-Line decomposes all the organisms present, such as fungi, bacteria and viruses in horticultural irrigation water. This applies both to newly supplied water and to recirculated drain water. UV disinfection makes it possible to reuse water safely for longer. Furthermore, expensive fertilizers are used more efficiently if the irrigation water is constantly recirculated, as they no longer disappear down the drain.

Made to match your business size

The Priva Vialux M-Line is based on medium-pressure UV technology, which is unique in the market. The system is made up of several disinfection chambers; their number is determined based on the size of the business. In this way, every business can be given a customized solution and the system can grow with the business through limited additional investments.

Great ease of use

Priva has paid special attention to ease of use. If required, the grower can replace the UV lamp, quartz tube and UV sensor himself and does not have to call in a technician for this. Maintenance is easy: rinsing with acid is enough to remove the deposit from the quartz tube. The system can be used as a stand-alone system or can be linked to process computers from various manufacturers. The advantage of linking it to the Priva Connext process computer is that the controls are fully integrated.

Process control and safety

The process control and monitoring systems are highly advanced, offering a high level of safety. At every start, the UV sensor predetermines the water's UV transmittance and adjusts the disinfection process accordingly. In this way all hazardous organisms are decomposed without any energy being lost due to a capacity surplus. The system is protected in many ways, including against lamp failure, overheating, running dry and peaks and troughs in the electricity mains. The Priva Vialux M-Line also makes it easier to comply with existing and future legislation in the field of water and food quality at the lowest cost per cubic meter of water.

A reassuring feeling

Priva has more than 25 years of experience in the field of UV disinfection. All of this experience and the latest technologies have been combined in the Priva Vialux M-Line. The grower using it is ensured of optimum safety for his crop. To quote one of the first users: ‘It is very reassuring to know that you are not spreading any diseases at your business.’
