As a result of this development, the use of recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS) is becoming increasingly important: they require less water and land overall and are therefore more flexible in terms of location. They also score points with higher biosecurity and productivity, lower wastewater volumes, simple monitoring and are independent of weather and environmental influences. At the same time, however, the requirements for consistently safe and high-quality RAS water treatment are increasing.

The solution: High-performance systems for various process steps
Proven DULCODES UV systems and the DULCOZON OZLa ozone system are suitable for the gentle and efficient disinfection of water in RAS. The DULCODES UV LP-PE system, made of high-density plastic, is corrosion-free and salt water resistant. Due to the unique combination of electronic ballast technology and the patented VARIO-Flux lamps, a particularly high degree of UVC efficiency is achieved.

The DULCOZON OZLa ozone system is characterized by minimal energy consumption and maximum space savings. Thanks to modules that can be switched on and off redundantly, it offers a high level of operational reliability. The large and coloured 10“ touch screen panel enables simple operation and clear process visualization.

Flocculant metering and pH adjustment
The PolyRex metering system supports the sludge thickening process. The powder storage tank is filled dustfree by a vacuum conveyor. The double screw metering unit with two counter-rotating conveyor screws enables low-pulsation and precise metering and ensures the lowest possible consumption of chemicals. Controllers and pH sensors as well as metering stations and solenoid diaphragm metering pumps from our company are used to adjust the pH value.

The pH value must be kept constant for the healthy growth of the fish. This is achieved by metering calcium hydroxide with a PolyRex system.

Sludge dewatering
The eccentric screw pump SPECTRA is used for the mechanical and biological purification of the water. It is used for the low pulsation pumping of sludge.

The trade audience first became acquainted with micro-metering pumps with linear motors four years ago at Achema. Now this technology is living up to expectations in practice. Use cases often include needing to meter small and micro-quantities precisely, apply a highly dynamic metering profile or handle a range of different processes. In addition, many users are looking for low-wear pumps with minimal maintenance as a standalone solution. Micro-metering pumps, which are highly compact, flexible and reliable, are ideal for such cases.
