PRESS RELEASE

CFdesign UVCalc Module

Blue Ridge Numerics has introduced the CFdesign UVCalc Module, a CFD solution for simulating and validating ultraviolet (UV) reactor performance to ensure accurate fluence rates (irradiances) for UV light disinfection. The use of germicidal UV light is a rapidly expanding technology that is used to ensure public safety by deactivating the DNA of bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens, removing their ability to multiply and cause disease. With the new partnership of Blue Ridge Numerics and Bolton Photosciences, design engineers developing UV applications for drinking water disinfection, wastewater treatment, and manufacturing processes for the food and beverage, medical device, pharmaceutical, and semiconductors industries (among others), can now easily develop fluid flow and UV calculation capabilities to speed up and optimise their product development process.

The ability to validate UV reactor performance for biodosimetry testing, while still on the digital drawing board, is the focus of CFdesign and the UVCalc Module. Exploration of multiple design scenarios before building prototypes for physical testing equates to significant cost and time savings.
