Ultraviolet (UV) water Sterilizer
Ultraviolet (UV) water purification systems are thought to offer the most cost-effective way of protecting residential drinking water against biological contaminants. UV purification systems can be used to protect against water-borne viruses, bacteria, molds and pathogenic disease-causing microorganisms such as giardia and cryptosporidium. Even viruses such as the hepatitis virus, which are known to be highly resistant to chlorine-treated water, can be relatively easily eliminated through UV treatment.
Is UV 100% effective?
UV disinfection typically offers a 99.99% reduction in both bacteria and virus and is more effective than chemical disinfection processes at destroying viruses.
Does UV remove E. coli?
Yes, E. coli requires a UV dose of between 6 to 12 mJ/cm2 to achieve 4-log disinfection. This is well within the capabilities of the Sterilight UV system.
How much does it cost to operate? UV systems are extremely economical to operate.
A typical household UV system operates on the same power requirements as a 40 watt light bulb!
Will UV change the taste or smell of my water?
UV is a physical disinfection process, no additives are required. It does not change the taste or odour of the water. It simply provides safe reliable disinfection.
Technical parameters sheet
1.Before install this equipment,please test the voltage for connection.normal running for UV lamp and ballast requires 240V.
2.There should be a 1.5 meter space for spared at each end(at least one end)for disassemble the quartz tube and UV lamp.then connect the water inlet and outlet
3.After connected the inlet and outlet pipe,then release the water to check whether there is any leakage at the nut connection.if it is leakage,screw the nut or check the sealing ring is cracked or not.pipe.please do not use too much force when screw the nut to avoid any cracking of tube.
4.The supporting frame must be grounding.
5.The UV lamp is inserted into the quartz tube through the nut with holes. the electric control panel is connected with 4-core plug and UV lamp. while connecting, two hands should handle the pin end and 4 core plug end respectively. Insert into plug slowly to avoid possible break-up because of corrosion.
