PR Aqua - UV Treatment

By: Pr Aqua  09-12-2011

Ultraviolet disinfection works by producing electromagnetic energy from a mercury arc lamp and penetrating the cell wall of the pathogen damaging the genetic material of an organism (RNA and DNA) and destroying the ability to reproduce.  UV inactivates almost all organisms that are a threat to fish including IHN, whirling disease, frunculosis, and hundreds of other viruses, bacteria and parasites.

PR Aqua - CO2 Removal / Aeration

Too much CO2 in your culture water interferes with the fish's ability to take up oxygen, even if oxygen levels in your system are adequate. You can achieve carbon dioxide removal and aeration of the water at the same time using PR Aqua’s forced-air carbon dioxide stripper. Removal of excess CO2 is absolutely critical - especially in reuse and recirculating aquaculture systems.
