The tap-water we receive everyday, comes to us through various sources of water and contains many harmful contaminants that are disastrous for human health and well-being. Therefore, it is necessary that the water is treated well before use.
Water treatment and disinfection systems using Ultraviolet (UV) light, guarantees the elimination of 99.9% and 99.99 of pathogens. In order to achieve this degree of almost absolute effectiveness by means of this physical procedure, it is absolutely essential that the previous processes of the water, eliminates almost completely, any turbidity of the same, since the ultraviolet rays must be able to perfectly cross the flow of water to be treated.
RO UV Water Purifiers work by radiating the flow of water with one or more quartz silicon lamps, with wavelengths of 200 to 300 nanometers allowing the water to flow without stopping inside the purifiers, which contains these lamps. The purifiers use activated charcoal for chlorine removal, flavor, odors, etc., and Ultraviolet (UV) rays are used for sterilization purposes to remove harmful bacteria, viruses and other harmful micro-organisms from the base of water.
The UV rays do not change the properties of water, meaning to say that it does not chemically alter the structure of the treated fluid. Unlike chemical disinfection techniques, which involve the handling of hazardous substances and reactions that result in unwanted byproducts, UV rays offer a clean, safe, effective and proven disinfection process through several decades of successful applications.
RO UV Water Purifiers are an instantaneous and efficient source of disinfection. They are one of the safest, cleanest, cost-effective and environmentally adequate water purifiers. Their germicidal action is carried out in a fraction of seconds. UV light occurs naturally within the electromagnetic spectrum of solar radiation in the range between 200 and 300 nanometers (nm) known as UV-C, which is lethal to microorganisms.
These water treatment systems are easy to install and takes up little space. The drinking water can be protected from E. Coli, Shigelladysenteriae, Salmonella and other interruptions that occur from time to time in municipal water wells and tubewells. The space-saving design of the ultraviolet water purifier under the UVB2 counter includes three stages of filtration for disinfected and bacteria-free water. The UV lamp and carbon filters are easily accessible for years of easy maintenance. It is ideal for point-of-use applications including under the kitchen sink, office water coolers, water vending machines, boats, recreational vehicles etc.
The different phases of filtration are:
- First stage (sediment filter) :
Eliminates particles of dust, oxides and solids in suspension.
- Second stage (granular activated carbon cartridge) :
Reduces the content of chlorine and compounds that produce bad taste and odor, leaving the water suitable for human consumption
- Third stage (activated carbon block cartridge) :
Reduces the same as the previous one (chlorine and compounds), but with greater refinement .
- Ultraviolet treatment :
Eliminates viruses, coliform bacteria, fungi, salmonella, algae, amoebas.
It was only recently discovered that the equipment that produces UV light was manufactured for residential use. UV energy is produced by low pressure produced by the UV lamp has the ability to destroy microorganisms that can live in the water.
