Unilever installs UV disinfection system to treat process water
Monday 26 March 2007Unilever Netherlands has recently installed a Berson UV disinfection system to treat process water at its margarine manufacturing plant in Rotterdam. The UV system ensures that all mains water used in the plant has a CFU*/ml count of less than 100. The water is used in the manufacturing of margarine brands such as Becel and Blue Band.
“Although incoming mains water is of very high quality, it cannot always be guaranteed to have less than 100 CFU/ml,” commented a Unilever manager. “The Berson UV system ensures the count is less than this by destroying virtually any microorganisms remaining in the water,” he added.
