Our Extras

As the supplier of VGE Pro we consider it important to offer you more than just our quality products. Therefore we are happy to share our knowledge of UV-C and UV-C disinfection with you via this knowledge centre.

What is UV?

UV-C radiation, with a wavelength ranging from 200 to 280 nanometres, has the most lethal range for micro-organisms. This makes UV-C radiation capable of causing permanent damage to many different undesirable micro-organisms found in water. In order for the disinfection process to succeed, each type of micro-organism must be adequately exposed to UV-C radiation. When micro-organisms are directly exposed to the correct intensity of UV-C radiation for long enough the radiation penetrates through the organism’s cell wall. The radiation disrupts the micro-organism’s DNA, so it no longer functions. The reproductive capacity of the micro-organism is damaged or the organism is destroyed entirety.


This environmentally friendly disinfection technique effectively focuses on the organisms and makes the use of chemicals redundant. When UV-C is used nothing is added to the water, so there is no risk of an overdose. However a lamp does produce less UV-C radiation as it ages, which is why it must be replaced after a prescribed amount of time.

Product development

Innovation is very important to us. As a company we are therefore focused on the development of new sustainable technologies applicable to water disinfection in various sectors. We do this by combining our passion for technology and knowledge of water, resulting in high-quality product innovations in the area of UV-C disinfection and water filtration. We consider it important to anticipate changing laws and regulations and to meet the needs present in the market.
