ECOSTER Drainwater Disinfector

In order to avoid the spread of plant diseases and infections in the nursery, disinfection of drainwater is absolutely vital. At Van Dijk heating we have been supplying the ECOSTER drainwater disinfector for this purpose since 1990. This system works via the heating system, as heating kills 99.9% of bacteria, viruses and fungi. Scientific research has demonstrated that disinfecting at 85°C for the duration of 180 seconds is sufficient. All ECOSTER disinfectors meet this standard. The energy can be supplied in different ways and we have developed a range of series to reflect this: gas-fired, with an electric element or connected to an external energy source. The capacity of our disinfectors varies from 0.4 to 50 m3/h.
