Evoqua Water Technologies and its subsidiary Neptune-Benson have acquired Delta Ultraviolet Corporation (Delta UV) from Bio UV SAS.

Delta UV is a leading manufacturer and marketer of UV-C technology in North America. The business is based in Gardena, Calif., and terms were not disclosed.

UV-C is a versatile technology used to disinfect water and destroy harmful micro-organisms in other liquids. With UV-C technology it is possible to reliably destroy or inactivate up to 99.99% or more of pathogens within seconds, without addition of chemicals.

Delta UV, founded in 1999, has developed an award-winning range of UV systems providing water treatment solutions for pool and spa applications.

The acquisition adds Delta’s UV systems to Evoqua and Neptune Benson’s portfolio of UV solutions, including ETS-UV systems and Wallace & Tiernan brand Barrier UV products.

The addition of Delta UV complements this range of existing UV offerings. Evoqua and Neptune Benson will now offer UV solutions for a large variety of applications, ranging from Municipal, Industrial, Recreational and Residential water applications.

Evoqua’s Neptune Benson business President Ken Rodi said: “We are pleased to welcome Delta UV to the Neptune Benson and Evoqua family.

“We’re excited to add another strong UV solution to our offerings, giving our customers more choices when it comes to their water disinfection needs.”

Together, the two companies filter, disinfect, treat, and improve billions of gallons of water in the industrial, municipal and recreational water markets. Tens of millions of people and thousands of companies rely on Evoqua and Neptune Benson to help them meet their needs for clean water.

Bio UV CEO Benoit Gillmann said: “The teaming of Delta UV with Evoqua and Neptune Benson’s portfolio will lead to the next chapter of growth for the Delta brand. I’d like to thank the dedicated employees with whom we’ve had the privilege of working.”
