UV Irradiation is another technology which can be applied to water purification for Bacteria & Organics. These technology uses high intensity ultra-violet radiation to destroy bacteria and other micro-organisms and to cleave and ionize any organic compounds for subsequent removal by ion exchange cartridges. Radiation with a wavelength of 254 nm has the greatest bactericidal action, while radiation at shorter wavelengths (185 nm) is most effective for the oxidation of organics.
UV Irradiation Work Theory:
Germicidal Action (254 nm)
RephiLe provide various UV Lamp and accessories to be compatible with your systems.
What are the benefits of UV Technology?
· Conversion of traces of organic contaminants to charged species and ultimately CO2 (185 + 254)
· Limited destruction of micro-organisms and viruses (254)
· Limited energy use
· Easy to operate
