Through its recent acquisition of Sunlight Systems, Siemens has made a valuable addition to its product portfolio for disinfection and ultra-pure water solutions.
Sunlight supplies a variety of water purification applications for disinfection, TOC (Total Organic Carbon) reduction and for the elimination of ozone and chlorine in water.
"With the Sunlight product lines, we are meeting the growing demand for UV disinfection products for water purification and wastewater applications in industry and local communities", said Roger Radke, CEO of the Water Technologies Division, which is part of the Siemens Industrial Solutions and Services Group (I&S).
Sunlight supplies open-channel horizontal & vertical UV disinfection equipment for the municipal wastewater market, along with chambered systems for the municipal drinking & wastewater and industrial markets.
Siemens plans to further grow its UV product line by investing in product development for municipal and commercial drinking water, water reuse and other applications, and leveraging the Siemens global organization.
The acquisition will also help support other Siemens businesses in the development of proprietary technologies in the growing field of advanced oxidation processes (AOPs).
