RZ-UV series Disinfection/Sterilizer Units for potable and non potable water. They are medium/large device with 3, 4 or 5 low pressure lamps 80 W each and cover flow rates from 20 to 40 m3/h. Being characterized by compactness and ease in installation/servicing. Rack control panel with microproceaaor and LCD display.
Easy installation, only two water connections In/OUT in horizontal or vertical possition. On request we can supply with manual cleaning system of the quartzes.
Compatible with all other water processes (i.e., RO, filtration, ion exchange, etc.).
They have been specially studied for single users, villages, hotels, campings, hospitals, chicken farms, aquariums, laboratories, flats, sewage plants or as a fundamental completion for other equipments (medium/large osmose systems, water dispensers, and so on.).
Method of operation
Η Ultraviolet light is electromagnetic radiation with wavelengths shorter than visible light. UV can be separated into various ranges, with short range UV (UVC) considered “germicidal UV.”
At certain wavelengths UV is mutagenic to bacteria, viruses and other micro-organisms. At a wavelength of 2,537 Angstroms (254 nm) UV will break the molecular bonds within micro-organismal DNA, producing thymine dimers in their DNA thereby destroying them, rendering them harmless or prohibiting growth and reproduction.
It is a process similar to the UV effect of longer wavelengths (UVB) on humans, such as sunburn or sun glare.Micro-organisms have less protection from UV and cannot survive prolonged exposure to it.
Ultraviolet disinfection of water consists of a purely physical, chemical-free process. UV-C radiation attacks the vital DNA of the bacteria directly. The bacteria lose their reproductive capability and are destroyed. Even parasites such as Cryptosporidia or Giardia, which are extremely resistant to chemical disinfectants, are efficiently reduced.
A UVGI system is designed to expose environments such as water tanks, sealed rooms and forced air systems to germicidal UV. Exposure comes from germicidal lamps that emit germicidal UV electromagnetic radiation at the correct wavelength, thus irradiating the environment. The forced flow of air or water through this environment ensures the exposure.
A key factor of UV water treatment too proper choose a model is the flow rate: if the flow is too high, water will pass through without enough UV exposure. If the flow is too low, heat may build up and damage the UV lamp.
