The Basics of UV Water Treatment
UV water treatment has a wide array of commercial applications, whether it’s for drinking water, beverage filtration or cleanliness in a laboratory setting. Ultraviolet treatment has been used in purifying some fresh juices, like apple cider, to comply with Food and Drug Administration standards.
In the lab, washing essential tools and equipment, such as safety goggles or pipettes with UV-treated water has been effective in the disinfecting process between uses.
Ultraviolet water purification has also seen some use in aquariums and ponds as a means to help control living organisms and harmful pathogens, thus increasing water clarity and preventing the spread of disease in aquariums.
Ultraviolet water purification or Ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) works by using short-length UV waves to kill or inactivate bacteria and other microorganisms. The water flows past UV lamps, which target the living microorganisms that can be found in the water that may not be removed through other types of water treatment.
UV water treatment removes microorganisms such as:
UV water treatment is accomplished without adding harmful chemicals to the water, doesn’t distort the water quality or effect its pH balance. When used, UV water treatment can have a 99.99% effective rate on microorganisms like bacteria, viruses, mold and algae.
UV water purification can be used on surface water or well water and is more cost and labor efficient in comparison to a number of other filtration methods. Simply put, the systems are cheaper and easier to use. A UV system is also environmentally-friendly and reduces the risk of disease from the microorganisms.
UV Water Treatment Applications
Ultraviolet systems are best used on water that has already gone through a reverse osmosis water treatment, as larger suspended particles in the water may block the radiation, but UV water systems can often be coupled with a pre-treatment system to eliminate those larger particles.
UV water treatment can be used across many industries, including:
…and more. Any industry that demands high-quality pure water can benefit from a UV water treatment system.
Besco Commercial can provide you with the system you need, from low flows up to hundreds of gallons per minute.
