UV Information Harmful Pathogen Threats? UV Disinfection is the Solution! The Threat Sustainable seafood that includes, Salmon, Halibut, Sea Bream, Cobia, Rainbow Trout, and Oysters are all valuable commodities threatened by harmful pathogen infestation. But they’re not the only ones. Public exhibits of fish, invertebrates, mammals, reptiles, and birds—all living examples of our natural world—are also in constant danger of coming in contact with harmful pathogens. It’s no secret that our world is faced with declining water quality and availability. This, combined with increased disease outbreaks, has resulted in continued pollution and the introduction of new waterborne pathogens to natural waters. There is a solution. The chart on the next page lists the most common pathogens found in Aquaculture and identifies their required Fluence (UV dose) for inactivation.

Harmful Waterborne Pathogens Aquaculture has used UV disinfection to control harmful waterborne pathogens for many years, but few design-consultants, purchasers, and operators truly understand UV’s capabilities well enough to use it successfully and cost-effectively. To achieve successful UV disinfection one must apply it correctly! The first step in applying UV disinfection correctly is to familiarize yourself with the targeted pathogens. This helps to establish the application’s UV disinfection requirements. Keep in mind, no two pathogens are exactly alike and all require their own specific UV-C dose.

Complex Life Cycle

The diagram above demonstrates the complex life cycle of the warm water protozoa Cryptocaryon (marine white spot). The diagram illustrates the four life-cycle stages of this lethal protozoan. It reveals the microorganism’s physical size and actual life-span based of its life-cycle stage. The free-swimming Tomite excyst or infective stage, when the microorganism is smallest (25-60 μm), is the life-cycle stage where UV Disinfection is most effective.

Harmful Pathogens Associated With Aquaculture

UV doses not accompanied by a specific log value, should be considered a minimal dosage. The listed data was collected from various sources and Emperor Aquatics, Inc. does not accept any responsibilit y for the accuracy of this information. This information is meant to be a guideline and should be used as such.

UV Information UV Disinfection is the solution

UV is a natural component of the electro-magnetic radiation emitted by the sun. The majority of radiation produced during this process is absorbed by ozone in the Earth’s upper atmosphere. UV light, specifically UV-C light (240-280 nm), which does pass through the atmosphere, acts as a natural disinfectant by inactivating exposed microorganisms, such as those found in surface matter. Emperor Aquatics, Inc.’s Low-Pressure (Monochromatic) UV Lamps utilize the same principle as the sun. Much of their output energy (35-40%) is within the Germicidal Action Spectrum (240-280 nm), specifically 254 nm. Coincidentally, living microorganisms absorb UV-C light, which, within seconds, triggers a photochemical reaction in the organism’s DNA thus preventing it from multiplying. The effectiveness of UV disinfection relies on the applied UV dose (i.e., the result of the time and UV intensity that the microorganism is exposed to within the UV System).

Purchase with Confidence 5-Step UV System Sizing Process Your Emperor Aquatics, Inc. service representative will carefully guide you through the UV system sizing process. Your representative will also provide you with critical technology information while following our UV system purchasing-sizing protocol. Our 5-Step UV System sizing process addresses critical operating characteristics that ensure you will select the best SafeGUARD UV System for your application.

Step 1: Selecting a Target Microorganism Our clients t ypically know their target microorganism when inquiring about a UV system. Our UV Dose Chart includes known UV doses for some common pathogens found in aquaculture. There are approximately 65,000 known protozoa and 4,500 bacteria, all of which require their own specific UV-C dose. Your Emperor Aquatics, Inc. representative will help you establish a target microorganism and, in turn, your required (minimum) UV Dose. The next step in sizing any UV system is to determine the required capacity based on worst-case water conditions (low %T).

Step 2: Assessing Water Quality (UV Light Transmittance) UV transmittance (UVT) is not turbidity! The water’s clarity is not an effective indicator, because both solid and dissolved material can absorb UV light. For example: metals (iron) in water are not visible to the human eye but absorb UV light and have a negative impact on UVT. UVT is the transmission of UV light (254 nm) through water. Regarding Aquaculture applications, flow-through fish-culture systems requiring influent disinfection typically test at 75-95%T. In contrast, RAS (recirculating aquaculture systems) typically test lower at 50-85%T. Application conditions ns vary and, therefore, must be evaluated individually. UVT must be considered when sizing any UV system. Using a meter is the only method of determining an application’s true %T. It is important to mention that UVT is not linear. The e UVT Chart (right) reveals actual fluence (UV dose) loss based on % UV transmittance (%T). %T). The Real UVT Field Meter manufactured by RealTech Inc. is available in both in-line and portable versions. Your EAI Representative can assist you with more information.

Step 2 continued: Assessing Water Quality (UV Light Transmittance)

The above line-graph illustrates how a lower %T parallels a diminished UV dose when operating our SafeGUARD UV System Model CLP6960A8 at a flow-rate of 150 GPM. Notice the distinct drop in achieved UV dose with only a slight change in %T.

Step 3: Building Your SafeGUARD UV System Your Emperor Aquatics, Inc. representative will provide you with UV System options. Choose between plastic or stainless steel UV vessels, as well as sophisticated or basic controls. No other UV system manufacturer offers you this degree of flexibility and cost-savings. Once all critical operating factors and system details are known (water flow, UV dose, material of construction, monitor/control options), your representative will suggest the SafeGUARD UV model that best fits your application and budget.

Step 4: Review the cost of ownership Most UV system manufacturers are reluctant to share cost of ownership numbers for their equipment. EAI, on the other hand, is excited to share this information with clients, because we know our SafeGUARD UVs have proven to be the most reliable, operator-friendly, and cost-effective UV Systems on the market.

Step 5: System Price Quotation & Emperor Aquatics, Inc. nc. Performance Certificate caate Your Emperor Aquatics, Inc. representative can provide a UV System Performance mance Verification Certificate with the UV system price quotation. This certificate guarantees thatt the SafeGUARD UV System you purchase will achieve the operating performance (UV dose) we specify. UV System performance is calculated by the Bolton Photosciences UV CALC Modeling deling Program.

www.emperoraquatics.com │ 9


UV Information Performance Verification Each SafeGUARD UV System is designed using calculations of intensit y and hydraulics from independent, substantiated sources such as the Bolton Photosciences UV CALC Modeling Program. This, in combination with biological testing, verifies the expected performance of our UV Systems. Bolton Photosciences Inc.’s UVCalc software results have been studied and tested experimentally in comparison with biodosimetry tests to confirm the accuracy of its results. The exercises definitively indicated that the UVCalc predictions are accurate. Bolton Photosciences and the UVCalc program are recognized by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) as a UV Authority. To learn more about Bolton Photosciences and the UV CALC sof t ware visit w w w.boltonuv.com

According to NSF International, “The SafGUARD UV System’s NSF/ANSI 50 certification bioessay achieved an impressive 6-log reduction.” This demonstrates that our conservative approach to using UV technology achieves reliable germicidal disinfection! It must be noted that the Bolton Photosciences UVCalc Modeling Program was used in our NSF-50 testing. SafeGUARD UV Systems have been approved and cer tified by various independent organizations, including Underwriters Laboratories (508A).

Validation Notes: The EPA Manual 815-R-06-007 section 3.6 Assessing UV Equipment Validation Issues describes validation issues and protocols. The EPA Drinking Water Validation is the only one of its kind and Emperor Aquatics, Inc. follows this protocol. It must be mentioned that validation DOES NOT umbrella a UV system manufacturer’s entire product line, but rather, only the specific UV model tested and the specific conditions present at the time of testing. Validation of any UV system is ver y expensive and t ypically not practical or necessar y for aquaculture.

The Cost of UV Lamp Technology Low-Pressure vs. Medium-Pressure All Medium-Pressure (MP) UV systems cost two to three times more to operate than Low-Pressure (LP) UV systems of equal capacity when applied to Germicidal Disinfection Applications.

Question: So why do Aquatic Life Support System (ALSS) customers mistakenly choose MP UV systems? Answer:

This is because MP UV system manufacturers recognize the market’s sensitivity to space. They promote a compact size, while neglecting to share negative operating characteristics (power consumption, low UV-C light output, short useful lamp life, and high-heat generation).

All LP and MP UV Systems operate the same, but have very different results! 1. LP UV systems use 3x less electricity to produce the same UV-C light output as MP UV systems. 2. LP UV systems convert 35-40% of their initial power input into UV-C light, MP UV systems only convert 11-15%. 3. LP UV lamps last 12,000 hours, while MP UV lamps only last 1,200-4,000 hours. 4. LP UV lamps operate at 180°F, MP UV lamps operate at 1,600°F .

The Light Spectrum Chart above is universal. It represents all Low-Pressure (LP) and Medium-Pressure (MP) UV lamps. Both LP UV Lamps (Red) and MP UV Lamps (Green) spectral output is identified. Notice the broad spectral output of an MP UV lamp, all of its spectral output outside the Germicidal Action Curve is wasted. In contrast, LP UV lamps, with their bulk spectral output inside the Germicidal Action Curve, are 3x more efficient and better suited for germicidal disinfection.

Monitor/Controls

Choose your SafeGUARD UV System Monitor/Controls Create the UV System Monitor/Control Package that best suits your application and budget. Many facilities are short-staffed and prefer simple controls while others are regulated and require more sophisticated solutions. Emperor Aquatics, Inc. is cognizant of the diverse needs and budgetary concerns of our clients, which is why we focus on design-flexibility. SafeGUARD UV Systems are equipped standard with our Basic Monitor/Control package, but are easily upgraded to our PLC (Programmable Logic Control) package. Monitor/Control packages must be selected at the time of your UV system purchase. They are not interchangeable and cannot be retrofitted into existing systems. Your Emperor Aquatics, Inc. support representative will assist you throughout the Monitor/Control selection process.

Basic Monitor/Control Our Basic Monitor/Control package simplifies operation and is best suited for facilities operating with a limited staff or those that do not require sophisticated controls. The Basic package is simple, because it involves no sophisticated software and is operated manually by using the external On/Off Switch.

Basic Control Features: • Main Power Indicator Light Identifies that power is reaching the power supply enclosure (when the external On/Off switch is in the “ON” position).

• Elapsed Run-Time Hour Meter Identifies operating hours of the UV lamps. When the lamps are replaced, the operator can reset the meter with the reset button.

• UV Lamp Status Indicators Bright LEDs signify normal lamp operation. When dim, the lamp is not operating properly. An unlit LED (not dim) signifies that the lamp’s ballast is not operating and requires service.

Basic Control Options: • 20218 Optional Over-Temperature System Shutdown (recommended w/ Plastic Vessels) Optional temperature sensor is mounted on the UV vessel. When the water temperature inside the vessel exceeds 120°F the system shuts down the lamp field to avoid heat damage and potential failure. • 20220 Optional Lamp Failure Audible Alarm Alarm buzzer signifies lamp failure or interruption of power to the lamp. Note: Basic Monitor/Control package options must be purchased with the UV system.

Each lamp is equipped with an individual hour meter stored in EEPROM for data retention upon power removal. Monitors for end-of-useful-lamp-life (12,000 hours). When reached, triggers an alarm (72-hour reoccurring alarm). Status is digitally displayed.

• Power Supply Enclosure Temperature Monitor Monitors the internal temperature of the Power Supply Enclosure. Factory-set temperature threshold will trigger an alarm at 140°F. Temperatures exceeding the 140°F will trigger the PLC to shutdown the lamp field and set off an alarm to protect the internal hardware from heat damage. PLC digitally displays this value.

• UV Vessel Water Temperature Sensor Monitors the internal temperature of the UV vessel. Factory-set temperature threshold is 120°F and, if reached, will cause the PLC to shut down the lamp field and activate an alarm. Additionally, if the water temperature sensor cable is interrupted or disconnected the entire UV system will shut down and activate an alarm.

• UV Intensity Sensor Monitors the UV Intensity inside the UV vessel and measures lamp UV-C output percent (0%-100%). Features include an alarm set-point used with the PLC output alarm relay. An alarm trip set-point is triggered anywhere on the 1%-100% scale. Package includes one sensor probe.

Ozone Systems Ozone & UV... A Great Combination! Ozone is a powerful oxidant and is very beneficial with improving water quality in Aquatic Life Support Systems (ALSS). Ozone oxidizes NO2 & NO3, helping to remove color, dissolved organic wastes, and micro-flocculates fine organic particulate, as well as improving dissolved oxygen levels. Ozone delivers a noticeable benefit in water quality, especially when applied to Recirculating Aquaculture Systems (RAS), which is why many system designers and operators are attracted to it. At the same time, ozone also optimizes conditions for UV disinfection. Yes, both ozone and UV disinfection can work together within the ALSS to offer superior results, specifically, improved UV light transmittance, which increases the UV system’s effectiveness—boosting the germicidal disinfection capacity.

Primary Disinfectant Ozone is not Instant Treatment, rather it requires that the target pathogen be exposed to specific concentrations for an extended period of time. For example: successful ozone disinfection in freshwater, targeting IPNV (Infectious Pancreatic Nacreous Virus), requires an ozone concentration of 0.15 mg/l for a period of 15 minutes (Cryer, 1992 #670). If this is the case, it means a Flow-Through or RAS with a water flow of 3,000 GPM (11,355 LPM) would require an ozone contact area large enough to effectively complete disinfection, and for most RAS, this is simply not practical. UV disinfection is Instant Treatment and at a fluence (UV dose) of 246 mJ/cm², it achieves a 4-log (99.99%) reduction of the pathogen IPNV. This means that a UV system with a disinfection capacity large enough to treat 3,000 GPM (11,355 LPM) will successfully achieve germicidal disinfection on a single-pass inside the UV vessel. Therefore, UV disinfection is the best choice as a primary germicidal disinfectant.

A Great Combination OZONE (clarifier) and UV (disinfectant) work well together! Ozone, being the powerful oxidizer it is, improves the UV Transmittance (UVT) in culture water,helping the UV system, positioned downstream of the ozone treatment, to perform more ef fectively. For instance, testing an RAS for UVT may reveal a 75%T. With appropriate ozone treatment, that 75%T could be increased to 90%T. The increased %T, from 75%T to 90%T dramatically increases the efficiency of the downstream UV system, and in many cases, reduces the size of the required UV system. All ALSS are unique, and so we are forced to apply ozone and UV differently based on the specific conditions and requirements of each application.

TRO (Total Residual Oxidant) Alert If bromide (Br) is present in the water (ground water or seawater), a reaction is possible with the by-product being hypobromous acid and hypobromite, which are harmful to aquatic life. Controlling ozone addition in seawater applications is necessary. There, ozone should only be used as a clarifier; enough to clarify (0.001 mg/l – 350 mv), and yet even with this super low concentration the formation of TRO’s (Total Residual Oxidants) remains possible. The accepted method among the Aquaculture community to measure ozone concentrations, especially super-low concentrations (0.001 mg/l – 350 mv) is to use an ORP (Oxygen Reduction Potential) Meter. It must be mentioned that due to the unstable characteristics of ozone, ORP meters are not as reliable at measuring ozone concentrations as Ozone Analyzers. Unfortunately, few analyzers are available that can measure such super-low concentrations (below .05 mg/l). Therefore, in seawater applications (especially RAS), both an ORP meter/controller, to measure and maintain the low ozone concentration, and a Total Residual Oxidant (TRO) Meter, to measure and detect dangerous TRO’s, should be employed.

Safety Control As mentioned previously, all ALSS are unique; however, there is one important similarity, in that a residual concentration of ozone greater than 0.001 mg/l can be harmful to fish and invertebrates. Safety protocols must be established and closely followed. For example, an ozone concentration of 0.03 mg/l is effective at controlling Saprolegnia, but allowing that same ozone concentration to reach the eggs or fish would cause them harm. Reliable ozone control is required. Placing a properly sized UV system downstream of the 0.03 mg/l ozone treatment can provide reliable ozone destruct. Ozone Destruct using UV: Fluence of 60 mJ/cm² destructs ozone concentration of 0.1 mg/l 90 mJ/cm² destructs 0.3 mg/l Automating ozone control to achieve reliability is recommended. Integrating the ozone generator operation with the UV system establishes a safety-firewall, protecting vulnerable livestock from potentially dangerous ozone. Applying a quality TRO Meter and implementing these control measures are especially important when applying ozone treatment to seawater systems.

LHO – O3 – UV The greatest challenge working with ozone in ALSS is getting it into the culture water. Various methods exist that include: venturi injection, bubble contactors, and pressurized reactors. Larger systems with high bio-densities, and high flows, create additional challenges; many associated with cost. Shown here is a stacked CO2 stripper with an LHO (Low Head Oxygenator) tower. This arrangement, with the substitution of ozone for oxygen, combined with UV disinfection creates a powerful and efficient filtering combination. LHO-O3-UV Process 1. Mechanically filtered (minimum 60 μm) water enters the CO2 stripper where it is de-gassed, increasing pH and gas-exchange. 2. Ozone injection takes place at the LHO; concentrations of up to 0.3 mg/l are possible. 3. The tower’s sump provides additional contact-time for the ozone to work on remaining organic material in the culture water. 4. Culture water exiting the tower is at its highest water quality within the ALSS. 5. The properly sized UV system destructs any residual ozone while providing reliable and effective germicidal disinfection. In this ALSS scenario, the ozone generator controls are interfaced into the UV system’s PLC. The UV system PLC’s integrated ORP Meter measures ozone concentration and, with set-points inputted, controls the operation of the ozone generator. Ultimately, if the UV system was to fail or an ozone (ORP) measurement exceeded the safety set-point, the UV’s PLC would shut down the ozone generator.

Ozone Systems Primozone Ozone Generator The Primozone Ozone Generator is the world’s most sophisticated ozone generator. It produces ozone with a very high concentration, in a compact package, and is energy efficient.

Cutting-edge Ozone Technology The patented technology behind the Flat-Plate Plasma Reactor is what makes Primozone Ozone Generators so efficient. Made from stainless steel and aluminum, Primozone Ozone Generators are easy to operate and service. With a very high concentration, operators can expect to produce more than 300g O3/Nm3o2, which is equivalent of 20 w t%, with an absolute gas pressure of 3.2 bars. This means the Primozone Ozone Generator uses less than half the amount of oxygen compared to a traditional ozone generator. Tests at the Norwegian Institute of Technology have measured 98% dissolution in less than 3 minutes. The high gas pressure makes it possible to distribute ozone long distances and also improves the effectiveness of the dissolution. The Primozone Ozone Generator can be operated on either on-site concentrated oxygen or liquid oxygen (LOX).

Sophisticated Control System The integrated control system with its unique features allows for precise control of ozone levels produced at any given time. The control system also allows for monitoring and control of ozone levels, oxygen flow, and alarms. With the optional Primozone System External Controller it is possible to: connect the ozone generator to other control systems, connect several Primozone Ozone Generators together, and utilize remote operation and monitoring.

Energy Efficient – Cost Effective The amount of oxygen used will vary proportionally based on the amount of ozone produced, thus the total energy consumption is low. A potential energy savings of up to 70% is possible compared to traditional ozone systems.

Small Footprint A Primozone Ozone Generator’s compact size saves space and fits in most locations. Do not be concerned with the risk of powerful magnetic fields – it’s EMC-approved and does not interfere with other electronic devices.

Foam Fractionation

Protein Skimmers/Foam Fractionators

What is Foam Fractionation? The design of Aquatic Life Support Systems, Recirculation Aquaculture Systems (RAS) to be more specific, are more frequently adding foam fractionation (protein skimming) into the filter loop. The presence of organic wastes, such as carbon, both dissolved and suspended, lowers dissolved oxygen concentration, pH, and redox potential. Foam fractionation is a unique process with truly beneficial results. It removes both dissolved and suspended organic material, improving water quality.

How Foam Fractionation Works The end goal of foam fractionation is to collect and remove organic wastes (carbon) through processes of adsorption and flocculation resulting in improved water quality. Foam Fractionation is essentially the mixing of air with water to create dense foam. By design, foam fractionation mixes micro-fine air bubbles with the culture water. Organic material in the culture water is adsorbed onto the bubble-wall, rises and flocculates into thick foam which is continuously discharged from the filter and pulled out of the system. The discharged foam is made up of particles that contain a significant concentration of organic carbon. By discharging organic carbon from the system, organic biodegradation is decreased within the system.

Ozone Injection Ozone often enhances the foam fractionation process, specifically when applied to freshwater applications. Seawater (SG 1.025 g/Im) is denser than freshwater (SG 1.0) and is more conducive to the production of micro-fine air bubbles. It is for this reason that ozone may not be necessary to achieve optimum foam fractionation performance in seawater. Freshwater, on the other hand, typically requires a small amount of ozone (350 mv) to enhance the process of adsorption and micro-flocculation. It should be mentioned that a higher ozone level (above 350 mv) inhibits organic waste adsorption and micro-flocculation.

Benefits of Foam Fractionation Achieving successful Foam Fractionation increases pH, dissolved oxygen concentration, redox potential, and UV light transmittance. Most aquatic life support systems can greatly benefit from foam fractionation. Additionally, foam fractionation acts as a germicidal disinfectant - discharged foam contains bacteria ranging in size from 0.4 - 3.0 um.

Biological Filtration

BioFOAM Bio-filters

BioCELL bio-media

Operation is Simple! 1. Culture water recirculates through the reactor. 2. The Air-Venturi Manifold, driven by the manifold pump, recirculates reactor water and injects micro-fine air bubbles. 3. Micro-fine air bubbles mix with the BioCELL bio-media, creating optimal conditions for nitrifying bacteria colonies. 4. The air bubbles help to suspend the media, providing a cleaning effect. 5. Bubbles carrying waste collimate at the top of the reactor, creating a thick foam. 6. Foam waste moves up and out of the chimney, separating it from the culture water.

Filter Internals ensure proper circulation and media bed fluidization.

Egg Incubation

High-Capacity Egg Incubation

SafeGUARD Up-Welling Egg Incubator SafeGUARD Up-Welling Incubators virtually eliminate Dead-Flow pockets, which are a leading contributor to fungal problems. The constant upward water-flow holds the eggs in suspension, eliminating those troublesome stagnant areas common with “tray-st yle” incubators. Up-welling Incubators also deliver comparable hatch rates to the tray incubators, but with far less labor and without chemical treatments! Removing problematic dead eggs from up-welling incubators is easy. The up-flow water circulation forces dead eggs to the surface where they can be removed with ease. Our Egg Incubators are made of polycarbonate and ABS plastic with PVC plumbing and are supplied with a gate valve for precise flow control.

Advantages: • Up-Flow reduces the labor of separating dead eggs, egg shells, and debris. • Eliminates stagnant areas. • Up-flow water circulation holds eggs in suspension to prevent fungus from attaching to, and smothering fertile eggs. • Easy-to-remove lid allows for quick removal of dead eggs, egg shells, and debris that float to the top of the incubator. • Inlet gate valve allows for easy flow adjustments. • Clear polycarbonate body allows for visual inspection of eggs. • 20 Quart Capacity increases incubation/hatching capabilities.

Up-Welling Egg Incubators with UV Disinfection Combine our Up-Welling Egg Incubators with UV to provide protection against harmful waterborne bacteria and fungus. Saprolegnia zoospores (fungi) requires a UV exposure rate of 39.6 mJ/cm². We recommend a minimum UV exposure of 60 mJ/cm² when applying UV with incubators. You can purchase the incubators and UV System separately or together on our incubator and UV rolling rack system. Choose bet ween either 3 or 6 incubator systems. Call us for more information on the rolling rack system.
