UV Technology and Water Disinfection

Posted on June 15, 2015 UV Technology and Water Disinfection

Ultraviolet light at the germicidal wavelength of 253.7 nanometers alters the genetic (DNA) material in cells so that bacteria, viruses, molds, algae and other microorganisms can no longer reproduce. The microorganisms are considered dead, and the risk of disease from them is eliminated.

UV systems are nature’s way of water purification and water disinfection

  • Environmentally positive – no chemicals needed
  • Greater effectiveness on a wide range of pathogens
  • No residual properties left in treated water
  • Industrial water purification systems are simple to operate
  • Minimal system maintenance requirements
  • Lowest operating cost amongst disinfection processes
  • Reduced capital costs

Where and When To Use UV Disinfection Systems

  • UV light kills molds, fungi and microorganisms
  • UV is used for Air-purification systems, Drinking water disinfection, swimming pool and waste water treatment. It is also used in places where hygiene is concern like pharmaceutical applications, Food and beverages and drinking water.
  • UV sterilizer is also used for hospitals, factories and offices.
  • UV sterilization leaves no residual chemical or radiation in air or water
  • Direct UV light can cause blindness and skin burns to human and animals therefore UV light is used in closed chambers.
  • Also, UV mobile sterilizer machine can help diminish the threat of microorganisms within a room in a matter of seconds.
