HydroDOS HD550G WRAS Approval

We are very happy to announce that Hydrotec’s HydroDOS HD550G chlorine dioxide generator is the UK’s first WRAS approved system of its kind after successfully demonstrating full regulatory compliance to the Water Regulation Advisory Scheme.

The system incorporates reaction chamber, high quality dosing pumps, chlorine dioxide residual monitoring and intelligent controls, chemical containment bunds in a lockable, tamper proof enclosure, all now fully approved for use in the treatment of drinking water.

 

Combatting Cryptosporidium

As most visitors to our website are probably aware, there was a widely reported instance of water supplies being contaminated with cryptosporidium, a microscopic parasite found in soil, water or food contaminated with animal or human faeces.

Swift measures were taken by the local water authority, offering safe advice on how to make the water drinkable such as boiling as well as providing bottled water, measures also included flushing the extensive 2,500 mile distribution network with a suitable disinfectant.

As well as the aforementioned, additional measures were taken to control the contamination and this included the implementation of 'rigs' consisting of ultraviolet disinfection systems to complement the flushing regime. Ultravliolet light at a wavelength of 254nm is incredibly effective at "deactivating" cryptosporidium especially at doses >10 mJ/cm² which prevents proliferation and growth.

Hydrotec is one of the UK's largest suppliers of WRAS approved ultraviolet water disinfection systems, our WRAS approved HydroPUR systems are also indepently tested and certified to BS EN 14897:2006 + A1:2007. For more information please feel free to contact us issue

Numerous Iconic Office Buildings – City of London

At approximately 225m/52 storeys the building commonly known as ‘The Cheese Grater’ was, albeit very briefly, the tallest new skyscraper in the City of London.

‘The Cheese Grater’ lost its title of ‘London’s tallest new Skyscraper’ to the commercial skyscraper located at 110 Bishopsgate. Once again the title of ‘London’s Tallest New Skyscraper’ was only held briefly until it was claimed by one of the most prominent buildings currently populating London’s skyline. Standing approximately 309m high, this building is currently the tallest building in the E.U. The glass-clad pyramidal tower has 72 habitable floors, with a viewing gallery and open-air observation deck on the 72nd floor, at a height of 244.3m.

As well as all three buildings holding the title of ‘London’s Tallest New Skyscraper’, they all benefit from having equipment designed, manufactured and supplied by Hydrotec, covering both biological control and scale control.
