Aquaculture, Aquarium & Zoos


Your investment is in the water. We protect it!

Aquaculture is about fish farming, the cultivation of both marine and freshwater species (in our case land-based production), and Aquatic Life Support for institutions such as public Zoos & Aquariums.

All aquaculture applications rely on good water quality to achieve their goals and to maintain livestock health. That’s where we come in.

Through equipment, information, and support, Emperor Aquatics, Inc. can protect your investment. Our disinfection UV Systems and water filter equipment are designed for dependability, cost-efficiency, to be operator-friendly, and to effectively eliminate the water quality hazards that threaten aquatic animal health.



SMART High-Output UV Sterilizers

SMART High-Output UV Sterilizers deliver optimum protection against harmful aquarium pathogens. They feature our high-output T6 style UV lamps, offering approximately twice the UV lamp output when compared to standard low-pressure UV lamps of the same arc length. With the increased UV output, SMART HO UV Sterilizers offer increased performance in a unit that requires less space. Each SMART HO UV Sterilizer model is designed to operate safely in wet environments and they are UL listed. SMART HO UV Sterilizers are designed for light commercial applications, filling the gap between our standard and commercial models.
