For research into the science of UV disinfection technology
Testing a Hanovia UV system at the UV Application Centre
UK-based ultraviolet (UV) disinfection technology specialist Hanovia has opened a new UV Application Centre in Shanghai, China. Serving as an R&D centre of excellence for research into the science of UV for new and emerging applications worldwide, the centre will support existing and future requirements in Hanovia’s traditional markets of pharmaceuticals, high purity water and food & beverage.
Working with leading universities worldwide, such as Imperial College in London and Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Germany, as well as some of the leading global brands in the pharmaceutical and food & beverage industries, the centre is already enhancing understanding of UV efficiency in the control and destruction of inorganic compounds.
‘The centre is completely customer-driven and is set up with a very clear mission: to develop UV application science that our customers actually need and to answer those searching questions that only empirical test work can answer,’ said Hanovia’s Technical Director Mark Aston.
‘This means working as a partner with our customers to push the boundaries of UV science and align our product range with their existing and future needs.’
The centre’s Principal Engineer, Elaine Feng, added: ‘We believe our investment in the science will allow our customers to enjoy scientific rigour in their process development, gaining the peace of mind that comes with the hands-on experience of moving from bench top to pilot to full scale.’
