Ultraviolet (UV) Water Treatment and Ultraviolet Water Purification Systems

Ultraviolet Water Treatment & Ultraviolet (UV) Water Purification Systems

Ultraviolet radiation from UV water treatment systems is used as a pretreatment or polishing step to sterilize and disinfect water. UV water systems are typically used to pre-treat a water supply that is considered biologically unsafe (lake or sea water, well water, etc). The ultraviolet water treatment system process is a non-chemical method for destroying microorganisms by altering their genetic material, and rendering them unable to reproduce.

In General, ultraviolet water purification systems are simple to install and requires little supervision, maintenance, or space. UV lamps are simply replaced when they burn out.

There are several advantages of using UV water treatment systems rather than a chemical water disinfection solution (such as chlorination):
No known toxic or significant nontoxic byproducts from ultraviolet water treatment
No danger of overdosing
The UV water purification process is a non-chemical method for destroying microorganisms such as bacteria, Protozoan cyst, and viruses.
Does not require storage of hazardous material
UV water filtration systems are energy efficient
UV water treatment systems adds no smell to the final water product
Requires very little contact time

UV radiation from ultraviolet water systems alone is not suitable for water with high levels of suspended solids, turbidity, color, or soluble organic matter. These materials can react with UV radiation, and reduce disinfection performance. Water turbidity makes it difficult for the Ultraviolet radiation to penetrate water. If your water supply has these characteristics, a Sediment Prefiler (5 micron or less) should be installed before your UV water purification system to remove particulate matter prior to UV water disinfection.

UV System Lamp Safety and Efficiency NOTE:

Bare skin contact with the quartz sleeve envelope must be avoided. Compounds from the skin when heated on lamps operating at 600 to 850˚c will form permanent etching (devitrification) on the quartz surface, decreasing UV energy transmission. A contaminated lamp eventually will overheat causing premature failure. Alcohol wipes and rubber gloves are included with every purchase of a quartz sleeve or lamp. NOTE: In case of contact with bare skin, decontaminate lamp with alcohol wipe before returning to use.
