UV Disinfection utilises UV light to rapidly render inactive microorganisms such as pathogenic bacteria. As this approach uses UV light through a physical process no chemicals are needed – it’s an environmentally friendly method of disinfecting potable water supplies with less ongoing maintenance when compared to chemical dosing (periodic lamp replacement is required).
To ensure effective disinfection UV systems should be designed to provide sufficient dosage to the water even at the end of the lamp life. Maximum flow rates and UV transmissivity of the water source are both important factors when correctly sizing a UV system.
