WATER = LIFE!!!

Clean drinking water is essential to life. The human body is made up to 60 percent water. Water assists in many important functions our bodies perform every day. Since it flows through our organs and cells water needs to be clean and free of disease, metals, and human and animal feces. Water is a fundamental human need. Each person on Earth requires at least 20 to 50 liters of clean, safe water a day for drinking, cooking, and simply keeping themselves clean. Polluted water isn't just dirty—it's deadly. Some 1.8 million people die every year of diarrheal diseases like cholera. All plants and animals must have water to survive. If there was no water there would be no life on earth. Apart from drinking it to survive, people have many everyday uses for water. Water = LIFE !!!

What is a UV (Ultraviolet) Sterilizer?

Ultraviolet or “UV” is a type of energy found in the electromagnetic spectrum, lying between x-rays and visible light. Although we cannot see UV light or rays, we are exposed to them every time we step out into the sun. In fact, UV light is responsible for causing sunburns.

UV Water Treatment systems use special lamps that emit UV light of a particular wavelength that have the ability, based on their length, to disrupt the DNA of micro-organisms. These UV light waves are also referred to as the Germicidal Spectrum or Frequency. The frequency used in killing micro-organisms is 254 nanometers (nm). As water flows through the UV system, living organisms in water are exposed to UV light which attacks the genetic code of the microorganism, eliminating the microorganism's ability to function and reproduce. If a microorganism can no longer reproduce, it cannot multiply, therefore it cannot infect other organisms with which it has contact. This process of exposing water to the UV light is simple but effective, destroying 99.99% of harmful microorganisms without adding any chemicals to water.

Advantages Of Using A UV (Ultraviolet) Sterilizer For Water Treatment

Municipal water suppliers perform the necessary operations to meet water quality standards. But UV purification systems take water purification to a higher level—providing a safe solution against chlorine-resistant microorganisms such as Giardia and Cryptosporidium which cause thousands of documented health cases each year.

  • Effective – Destroys 99.99% of microorganisms
  • Environmentally Friendly – Go green! UV is an environmentally friendly alternative to chlorine disinfection and has no disinfection byproducts
  • Reliable – works night and day, 24/7, consistently keeping water safe
  • Cost-Effective – only lamp & sleeve replaced annually
  • Quick Process – water flows through the system without need for holding tank or reaction times
  • Low energy usage – low electrical needs
  • Conserves water – The UV purification process does not waste any water
  • Chemical free – no harmful chemicals need to be added
  • Essentially trouble-free – once installed, annual service is usually all that is required
  • Safe – no handling of chemicals
  • Clean – no dirty parts to dispose of
  • More effective than chlorine or chloramines – especially on some water borne cysts
  • FDA Approved – one of only 4 methods approved for disinfection by US Food & Drug Administration (FDA)
  • Taste and odor – Chemical disinfection methods (such as chlorine) change the taste & odor of water and produce byproducts. UV does not.

Most ultraviolet water treatment systems require only an annual change of lamp – as simple as changing a light bulb – and a periodic change of a filter cartridge that protects the lamp. Although the initial cost of some UV applications are a bit more than chlorination, the low operating costs make it pay for itself in no time.

Parts of the Ultraviolet System

  1. Ultraviolet Power Supply Unit - This is the main controlof the Ultraviolet system. Some systems have a very simple controller, and others have a more complicated system that includes alarms, lamp change timers, trouble indicator lights, and more. Although Ultraviolet units vary in complexity and size, all controllers do basically the same thing of controlling the electrical output of the lamp and powers the UV-C light needed for water purification.
  2. Inlet for untreated water.
  3. Ultraviolet System Housing - This part of the system contains the Ultraviolet sleeve and lamp, and also controls the flow of water through the system.
  4. Outlet for treated (clean) water.
  5. UV Bulb - The lamp of an UV system produces UV-C, which is Ultraviolet light considered to be germicidal. However, different lamps perform different functions, so they type of lamp used will be contingent on the application and disinfection requirements.
  6. UV Quartz Sleeve - The quartz sleeve is made of quartz glass and is there to protect the UV lamp which is powered by electricity from the flow of water. The UV lamp transmits light through the tube into the water. It is important to clean the sleeve (generally when the lamp is changed) as minerals and contaminants in the water can cloud the glass tube.

Contaminants that the UV (Ultraviolet) System Can Remove

  • Viruses, Bacteria, Cysts, Coliform, Salmonella, Giardia, E.coli, Cryptosporidium, Typhoid
  • Fever, Flu, Polio, Dysentery, Cholera, Meningitis, Infectious, Hepatitis

How does Ultraviolet Sterilization Work?

UV Process

Many water purification systems take advantage of a UV water sterilizer even after processing their water. This is a well-known practice. Companies like Puritech highly recommend UV sterilizers as a post treatment when treating water. Throughout the years ultraviolet technology has become well established as a chosen method for effective and economical water disinfection. Ultraviolet water sterilization claims many advantages: All microorganisms are virtually susceptible to ultraviolet disinfection. For every penny of operating cost, hundreds of gallons of water are purified. NO additional chemicals are added and there’s no danger of overdosing. Once the water leaves the purifier, it is ready for use with no further contact time required. It has simple and easy to install and maintain. Compact units need a small space to operate and store. Ultraviolet water sterilizers deliver ongoing disinfection without special attention or measurement. There are no detections of chlorine taste or corrosion problems.

The Difference
Between Our UV syste
And The Competition

  • The UV chamber quality is worse then us, as they use low quality stainless steel then our company which means they are more easily get rusted after using a few months
  • The UV Ballast is not the same, they use less components then us
  • The packing is not as good as us, we use strong carton box which insure safty transpoation
  • Our welding technology is also better then your new UV supplier too, we can make sure that is no water leak from our UV chamber
  • We have passed the CE, ROHS certifications and also the local certification for Italy market which you also know it.
    If you check inside of the UV chamber you will notice the differences.
