Xylem Expands Its Aquaculture Offering With New Ultraviolet, Saltwater-resistant Treatment Solutions

Xylem Inc., a leading global water technology company focused on addressing the world’s most challenging water issues, announced today that it has expanded its offering of WEDECO ultraviolet (UV) disinfection solutions specifically developed for the tank-based aquaculture industry. Xylem’s new closed-vessel WEDECO BX and Quadron series UV systems are designed for inactivating fish pathogens. The systems are contained in duplex stainless steel reactors capable of resisting the corrosive effect of saltwater. The new WEDECO units will enable customers to efficiently handle pressurized flows ranging from 10 to more than 4,000 cubic meters per hour. The new systems are being showcased at the Aqua Nor trade show in Trondheim, Norway this week (stand # 325).

“We are excited to offer new and innovative aquaculture solutions to our customers,” said Gretchen McClain, president and chief executive officer of Xylem. “The recent extension of our line of WEDECO disinfection systems is the latest example of our commitment to solving our customers’ water problems. We look forward to bringing all areas of Xylem’s aquaculture expertise to customers in pumping, treatment, instrumentation, heat exchange and control systems, for optimal biosecurity, energy efficiency, and value.”

Xylem’s WEDECO brand is a world leader in UV technology. Large-scale fish farms in European countries such as Norway, a country with some of the longest established and most advanced aquaculture industries rely on Xylem’s disinfection equipment to protect their aquatic livestock from the spread of diseases and to ensure clean, safe water for their aquaculture businesses. Xylem’s aquaculture UV solutions are approved by the Norwegian Veterinary Institute (NVI) and validated according to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) standards.

Aquaculture is the most rapidly growing sector of food production worldwide. Higher fish density can lead to pathogen increase which is a significant threat to aquaculture operations. Disinfection by UV or ozone can reduce the risk of disease in aquaculture systems and results in less need for vaccination, as well as higher growth rates and decreased fish mortality.
