Water treatment system for Freshwater & seawater

Ensure water is healthy and clear in freshwater and salt-water ponds

BIO-UV Group has developed and patented a range of specific water treatment systems for UV-C disinfection in freshwater and salt-water ponds.

  • For aquaculture, fish farming, aquariums, our products are designed to optimise water quality for hatchery, nursery & grow-out facilities
  • For wellboats, our systems are designed for fish welfare, biosafety and system redundancy to protect valuable cargo

Our reactors maintain the biological balance of the basins and meet the most severe requirements for professionals in order to optimize their operations in complete safety.

The water quality is irreproachable and guarantees a basin without danger to allow the development of plants and fish.


PRINCIPlE of uv treatment

Our UV-C devices work like all BIO-UV disinfection devices, with one or more UV-C lamp(s) for water treatment.

The UV-C treatment guarantees the bacteriological quality of the water while respecting the flora and fauna and preventing the development of pathogenic diseases. No chemicals are used, it is a natural treatment which clarifies the water by destroying the algae and adapts very easily to the installations in place. 

Eradicates and destroys viruses (IPNV, VHS, IHN), Protozoa (white spot), Bacteria, Fungi, etc.

The reactors, located on the filtration circuits, treat at each passage and continuously the flow rate considered as a function of the turbidity and transmittance indicated. Microorganisms are eradicated without any addition of chemicals. The water is healthy and perfectly crystalline.

Ecology: an innovation for sustainable development

  • Healthy disinfection process, without the addition of harmful or chemical products
  • Ensures a healthy and safe environment for fauna and flora
  • Garantees of healthy crystal-clear water without proliferation of algae or pathogenic microorganisms

Economy: a secure, reliable and simple concept

  • UV treatment devices adapted to the flow rates
  • devices that take into account the specific turbidity of the water: guaranteed effectiveness for penetration of UV-C rays, power in millijoules delivering true effectiveness right to the end of the operating life of UV-C water treatment lamps, and guaranteeing effective destruction of unwanted micro-organisms (particularly certain viruses)
  • Continuous follow-up for professional customers
  • A simple design, facilitating maintenance, easy and quick to install


They trust us

The ultraviolet water treatment systems designed and manufactured by BIO-UV Group gives complete satisfaction to those who already use it.
More than 8,000 basins are equipped with BIO-UV reactors around the world, including the aquariums in La Rochelle, Montpellier and Le Grau du Roi in France, the Bioantu Basin in Chile or even  the first sanctuary for belugas, Sea Life Trust, in Iceland.

UV Range
UV Range

The reactors, fitted to the filtration circuits, continually treat the flow rate (decided according to indicated turbidity and transmission) each time it flows through. All micro-organims are thus destroyed without any addition of chemicals. The water is thus healthy and crystal clear.
