Ultra Violet (UV)

Ultra Violet (UV) systems use ultra violet light to destroy organic compounds, bacteria and viruses in water. UV is typically used for drinking water and ultra-pure water purposes.

Over time, organic matter and dust can form a layer on the sleeves of the UV lamps to significantly reduce UV light intensity and in turn reduce the performance of the UV lamps and process. The servicing of a UV system includes the monitoring of the UV intensity of each UV lamp and its replacement when the UV intensity has been reduced significantly. Monitoring UV intensity ensures that the UV system is treating water at its optimum capacity.
