Ultraviolet Solutions

Light waves travel in the form of electromagnetic radiation, and ultraviolet (UV) energy is found in the electromagnetic spectrum between visible light and x-rays. In water treatment applications, 254 nanometers (nm) is required for disinfection and ozone destruction, while 185 nm is required for TOC reduction and breaking down chlorine.

The Way it Works

Disinfection – UV light penetrates the cell body of the microorganism and alters the DNA. Thus, microorganisms are destroyed without the use of chemicals. The 254 nm UV light can also be utilized to destroy residual ozone present in water.

TOC Reduction & Chlorine Destruction – 185 nm UV light generates hydroxyl (OH•) free radicals and breaks down the organic molecules.
