UV purification systems utilize UV light in the 250-270 nm range to disinfect water. Most UV purification systems today operate at 254 nm. UV light at this wavelength can penetrate the cells of microorganisms and alter their DNA so that they can no longer reproduce, rendering them harmless. When a microorganism is unable to reproduce, it is unable to infect any other organisms it may encounter.
WaterProfessionals® is a leading supplier of commercial and industrial ultraviolet water purification systems (a.k.a. UV Water Purification Systems). We are experts in ultraviolet disinfection and can create a custom UV water treatment system to meet your purification needs.
For UV disinfection to work, water must often be pretreated prior to being disinfected with a UV system. Turbidity, color or organics in water may interfere with the rays of the UV light and shield microorganisms from exposure. For class A point of use (POU) and point of entry (POE) disinfection, the ANSI and NSF require that clear water receive a dose of 38 mWs/cm2 (38 milliwatt seconds per square centimeter) of UV light.
Detailed information on the ultraviolet water purification process and how UV light sterilizes water is available here.
UV water purification is a cost-effective method of disinfecting source water, and ultraviolet water purification systems are commonly used in the following industries: dairy, pharmaceutical, agriculture, medical, cosmetics, bottled water, food, laboratory, and more.
Benefits of UV disinfection include:
