UV-Team Austria

As pioneers in UV disinfection of water we founded the first test facility for investigations on UV-Systems already in 1996 and have long-time experience in the research fields of UV inactivation, radiation physics, engineering and water hygiene. Since 2010 the UV-Team Austria is based at the Water Test Centre Wiental (WTWt). WTWt is a research cooperation between Medical University Vienna, University of Veterinary Medicine Vienna and Vienna Water.


The mission of the WTWt is ­research and ­development on water treatment techniques based on physical ­processes. The main focus is disinfection of drinking ­water by means of UV ­radiation.

The UV-Team Austria collaborates with UV manufacturers from all over the world,  particularly from following countries: Austria, Denmark, France, Germany, Great Britain, Italy, Netherlands, New Zealand, Russia, Sweden, Switzerland.
