UV Water Disinfection System – What You Need To Know

While reverse osmosis, nanofiltration and ultrafiltration are good and very effective ways to purify water, the fact remains that there still could be tiny organisms, bacteria and viruses floating around in water after those processes have ended.   A UV water disinfection system bridges that gap.  It utilizes ultraviolet radiation to get rid of disease-causing microorganisms, including bacteria and viruses.  It has several advantages over filtration and can be used as one of the final steps in water purification one the major impurities have been removed.
UV water disinfection systems are advantageous for two reasons, their practical applications and the chemical-free process in which they work.  The process is relatively simple.  Water is bombarded with UV rays from a low-pressure mercury lamp in the range of about 240-260 nanometers.  This attacks bacteria from the inside out, destroying them genetically via their DNA.  Because their genetic code is altered to the point where they can no longer reproduce, the existing bacteria die off.  It can also be used to remove chlorine from water, but that takes a higher dose of UV rays.  It is important to note that this system does not remove dissolved organic or inorganic materials from the water, it only sterilizes it.
Because of its chemical free methodology, a UV water disinfection system can be used in a variety of places, such as public and private swimming pools, drinking water, bottled water, and for treating municipal (tap) water.  It lessens the necessity for chlorine, which is what makes it so attractive for use in swimming pools.  Unlike chlorine, it is tasteless and odorless, which is why it works well in treating drinking water.  The low cost and consumption, and lack of a by-product make the process environmentally friendly, and the process is immediate, which means it doesn’t need a storage tank.
While there are many advantages to a UV water disinfection system, there are a couple of drawbacks, however.  Since the process does not eliminate organic or inorganic materials from water, this process works best on water that has already been treated with reverse osmosis.  The flow rate must also be kept steady, since a low rate could result in water going untreated, and a high rate may result in damage to the mercury lamp.  It goes without saying that the benefits seem to outweigh the associated drawbacks.  Therefore, disinfection via ultraviolet light is a safe, efficient, economical, and eco-friendly way to purify water.
