Atlantium’s Hydro-Optic Disinfection™ system provides hatcheries and fish farms with a key building block of stable, profitable production: reliable disinfection that leads to increased stock welfare and higher survival rates.
With disease outbreak an ever-present threat for fish farms and hatcheries, maintaining high levels of water quality is a mandatory part of a prophylactic program that achieves bio-security, preventing disease and promoting robust production.
Atlantium expertise helps achieve customers’ goals Atlantium’s comprehensive solution for hatcheries and fish farms begins with the development of a complete strategy for protection against harmful water pathogens of all types. The strategy, formulated by Atlantium’s marine and micro-biologists together with the customer, examines relevant applications, targets pathogenic microorganisms and dose requirements to achieve the most beneficial implementation of the Hydro-Optic Disinfection system. The system delivers a full range of doses needed to inactivate even highly UV-resistant pathogens, bacteria, viruses, fungi and other microorganisms present in sea, fresh, or brackish water. Atlantium’s system creates a bio-secure environment of high quality water that prevents disease even when fish densities are high.
Depending on customer needs, the Hydro-Optic Disinfection system can be installed at the water inlet to serve as the key barrier for the flow-through system, or installed online or side-stream to maintain a balanced microbial load in the fish tanks of re-circulation systems.
Automated system ensures consistent delivery of required dose Atlantium’s real-time, Monitoring and Control is a fully automated component that continuously receives readings of water flow rate, measures UV water transmissivity and lamp intensity, and adjusts the required disinfection dose accordingly. Moreover, the component’s data logging capabilities record water conditions and doses, providing fish farm managers with a complete and accurate history and trending.
By enabling stable water quality, the Hydro-Optic Disinfection system ensures stable production cycles, providing aquaculture customers with the security they need to make and meet business forecasts. Atlantium’s systems are used in some of the world’s largest fish farms, by growers of sea bass and sea bream, cod, salmon, turbot, shrimp, koi and tropical ornamental fish, among others.
