UV Disinfection System is an extremely effective way to combat microbial contamination in water. However, microbes have to be exposed to UV-C light in the proper amount in order to effectively disinfect the water. UV Disinfection Systems are used in many different applications ranging from the purification of drinking water in individual homes to disinfecting water supply of entire townships to industrial wastewater treatment. UV treatment for water is recognized as a safer and more cost-effective way to disinfect water for industrial applications
UV sanitization is useful in almost any application where microbial free, safe and pure water is required; and where there is a chance of the water being contaminated before it reaches the final point of use.
In UV water disinfection technology, Ultraviolet light of wavelength 253.7 nanometers is used for disinfection of bacteria, viruses, molds, algae, and other microorganisms, which multiply and grow. UV disinfection technology destroys the DNA of microorganisms which leaves them dead and unable to grow further. UV disinfection technology can be used for drinking water disinfection, process water disinfection, wastewater disinfection, and surface disinfection. Other than disinfection applications, this technology can also be used for TOC removal and Ozone destruction.
In the UV water disinfection technology, the UV light disinfects by penetrating microorganisms and destroying their DNA. DNA plays an important role in organisms’ functions and reproduction hence destroying the DNA prevents the organism from being active and multiplying. This UV energy (wavelength of 240-280 nm) is also naturally found in sunlight in very small quantities. The same energy is produced in stronger intensities with the help of high mercury discharge lamps, commonly known as UV lamps.
No bacteria, viruses, molds or their spores can survive when exposed to the correct dose of UV light. Therefore UV is considered as the best solution for water sterilization.
Ultraviolet disinfection system is not simply a lamp inside a pipe. The UV Reactor must be designed to ensure that all microbes receive sufficient exposure to the UV light (dose). Based on the hydraulic properties of water; the reactor needs to be optimized to guide the flow in a manner so as to maximize residence time and boost turbulence. Well designed Industrial UV water disinfection systems are producing consistently exceptional results in the industrial applications
Natural – UV is nature’s way of purification.
Environmentally Friendly – No Toxic by-products are formed during the UV disinfection process
Effective – All known microorganisms are susceptible to UV light
Economical – Lowest operating cost amongst disinfection systems
Safe and Chemical Free – No addition of chemicals hence no danger of overdosing
Fast – It is In-contact purification therefore Instant
Easy to Manage – Well designed systems like the Alfaa UV systems come with many advanced features like CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics), high-efficiency electronic ballasts, and extremely precise UV intensity monitors which make them highly effective and hence easy to manage.
There can be some cases where the water is not adequately pre-treated and turbidity levels are low. In such cases, routine inspection and cleaning can be carried out every 6 months. In the case of high turbidity and hardness, the cleaning frequency might need to be increased. Finally, the UV lamp has a limited life and must be replaced once it is exhausted. In the unlikely event of premature failure of the lamp, the monitoring circuit will provide the signal to advise replacement.
|Ease of Installation||Excellent||Good||Complex|
