LONDON, April 24, 2007 -- Ultraviolet (UV) disinfection specialist Hanovia has won a major contract to supply UV disinfection systems to a leading pharmaceutical manufacturer in China. The UV systems will be used for ultra-pure process water disinfection.

"This is our largest ever pharmaceutical order for the Chinese market and cements our position as one of the leading suppliers of UV disinfection systems to the global pharmaceutical industry. The support of our local Chinese representative was instrumental in Hanovia winning this contact."

UV technology has many applications in the pharmaceutical industry, including process water disinfection, TOC (total organic carbon) reduction, ozone and chloramine destruction, and dechlorination.

UV systems are easy to install on existing pipework and require minimum disruption and site preparation. Depending on the level of use, the only routine maintenance required is changing the UV lamps every 12-24 months, a simple procedure that can be carried out by on-site personnel. Once installed, a plant can be kept operational 24 hours a day, without the necessity of shutting down the system for routine sanitation and sterilisation.

Hanovia (www.hanovia.com), a unit of Halma Plc, is based in Slough, Berkshire, the United Kingdom.

Based in Amersham, Buckinghamshire, England, Halma PLC (www.halma.com) businesses range from smoke detectors to ophthalmic lenses, but protection and detection are the common ties at its nearly 50 subsidiaries. Its UV businesses include Aquionics Inc. in the United States, Berson UV-techniek in The Netherlands, and Hanovia Ltd. in the United Kingdom. Halma operates businesses worldwide, but Europe accounts for over half of sales.
