New UV efficiencies from
a century-old technology

UV Disinfection continues to grow with broader use

UV light has long been the treatment and technology of choice for water disinfection – for good reason. With proper dosage, UV light is very effective against a wide variety of organisms – without adding chemicals, byproducts, or altering the quality and appearance of the water treated. Compared to conventional chlorination or ozonation treatment systems, UV usage has continued to grow across a range of industries because of competitive operational costs, less harmful environmental impact and overall performance efficiencies.  

How UV works.

The term “ultraviolet” comes from the description of light that is beyond the violet light visible to the human eye. Specific frequencies and dosage of UV light in the Electromagnetic Spectrum damage DNA in water-borne pathogens rendering bacteria and viruses harmless.

UV-C between 240-280 nm is the optimal UV range to damage pathogen DNA.

What’s new with century-old

UV technology?

Chamber reflectivity.

 

Conventional UV systems are

inefficient and expensive to operate. Most UV systems use a stainless steel pressure vessel, and stainless steel is very inefficient at reflecting UV light. Approximately 80% of the UV that reaches the chamber wall is ultimately lost as heat.

 

The additional heat also causes more chemicals to precipitate out of the water and adhere to the lamps sleeves.  To combat the build up conventional UV systems offer wipers. However, wipers can lead to UV shadowing and potential live transfer pathogens and wiper systems have their own maintenance requirements.

NeoTech Aqua Solutions with its

patented reflective technology

and unique chamber design has

increased UV reflectivity to 99.8%.

As a result of improved reflectivity,

chambers use less energy with smaller and fewer lamps – also reducing maintenance and the need for wiper cleaning systems.

Lower operational costs, less environmental impact and improved

efficiency – still reasons for considering

UV – now even more so.

Higher reflectivity means higher effectiveness of the UV generated with evenly distributed UV throughout the chamber resulting in a uniform treatment of the water column, reducing shadowing, and potential live transfer.
