The method of ultraviolet germicidal light being used in purification and disinfection of water is a unique and rapid method, without the requirement of heat or potentially hazardous chemicals.
UV disinfection units, often called ‘UV sterilisers’ or ‘UV filters’, comprise a stainless steel reactor chamber housing a UV lamp or lamps located inside protective quartz sleeves.
These lamps are tailored to emit shortwave radiation (at 254 nm), this being lethal to DNA contained within the cells of bacteria, virus & other micro-organisms. The UV radiation emitted causes breaks and modification of the DNA chain preventing the bacteria from reproducing, effectively killing it. (The removal of organic and inorganic chemicals, including Chlorine, Chloramines, Ozone and Total Organic Carbon (TOC) emerging contaminants, is also commonly seen).
Throughout the years ultraviolet technology has become well established as a method of choice for its effectiveness, economy, safety, speed, ease of use, and because the process is free of by-products.
AllWater Technologies Ltd offer a wide range UV system options and spares, including items for validated pharmaceutical applications.
