UV is Ultraviolet radiation, an energy band within the electromagnetic energy spectrum. Its wavelength is between that of visible light and x-rays and it has been found to be an effective method for destroying germs in a water supply.

At a 254nm wavelength, UV reaches its peak germicidal effectiveness against most microorganisms.

UV destroys germs causing a molecular change in their DNA makeup. This prevents germs from multiplying and destroys the ability to spread disease. When germs cannot multiply, they are considered dead.



How does UV work?

Ultraviolet purification is a chemical-free solution to killing the bacteria in your water. It uses a UV light source (lamp) which is enclosed in a protective transparent sleeve (usually quartz). The lamp is mounted such that water passing through a flow chamber is exposed to the UV-C light rays. When harmful microbes are exposed to the UV rays, their nucleic acid absorbs the UV energy, which then scrambles the DNA structure of the organism. The cell is rendered sterile and can no longer reproduce. The cell is now considered dead and is no longer a threat.

Ultraviolet or UV energy is found in the electromagnetic spectrum between visibile light and x-rays and can be best described as invisible radiation.


In order to kill microorganisms, the UV rays must actually strike the cell. UV energy penetrates the outer cell membrane, passes through the cell body and disrupts its DA preventing reproduction. The water should be clear and free from particles. The use of a pre-filter is recommended, please see our range of filters
 for more details. UV water treatment does not alter water chemically; nothing is added except energy.


The digree of disinfection by Ultraviolet radiation is directly related to the UV dose applied to the water. The dosage, a product of UV light intensity and exposure time, is measured in millijoule per square centimeter(mJ/cm2). Most UV units are designed to provide a dosage greater than 30mJ/cm2 after one year of continuous operation.

SITA IM Series UV - Tank Disinfection

Headroom disinfection in water storage tanks and the disinfection of surfaces. 
These immersion lamps are applicable to prevent bacteria growth in water tanks. 
 
• Food & beverage 
• Industrial water: cosmetic, pharmaceutical, electronic. 
• Fish farming 




UV-C RAYS represent today one of the best methods for the disinfection of water: thanks to the physic 

UV-C rays penetrate the cells of harmful bacteria and viruses in our drinking water, destroying their ability to reproduce. Without this ability, these organisms die and no longer pose a health threat. It is a simple but very effective process, with the system destroying 99.99% of harmful microorganisms. The principle on which their germicidal power is based, they only act where it is necessary, in the full respect of the most exacting rules of environmental protection.


UV water treatment systems require pre filtration to maintain effectiveness as sediment and other contaminants in the water can create a "shadow" which prevents the UV rays from reaching and disinfecting the harmful microorganisms.

The SITA UV sterilizers for primary water find their use in different water disinfection applications: aqueducts, municipal water systems, swimming pools, sources, aquaria, hospital and school structures, restaurants, chemical and food industries, and all applications where a microbiologically pure water is necessary.

Cintropur TRIO-UV Water TreatmentCintropur's innovative, three function, compact UV steriliser, If your main water supply is from rainfall, bore water or spring water collected and stored in a tank, then this is the best method to bring your water up to drinking standard.
 



Cintropur's innovative, three function, compact UV steriliser, If your main water supply is from rainfall, bore water or spring water collected and stored in a tank, then this is the best method to bring your water up to drinking standard.

Ultraviolet (UV) light treatment is the most effective method of deactivating bacteria in home supplies.


So how does it work?
A prefiltration unit removes suspended particles, following which a carbon treatment unit removes chemicals. The water is then irradiated by ultraviolet light, rendering bacteria unable to reproduce and cause illness. Bio-dosimetry laboratory tests have confirmed that Cintropur compact UV systems guarantee optimal water treatment.

For use on rainwater, private water supplies (boreholes, springs and wells), storage tanks (boats and caravans).


Functions of the TIO-UV: Cintropur TIO -UV

Filtration: The spiral structure of the filter generated a centrifugal force, which in a cyclone effect, moves larger particles towards the bottom of the bowl. The remaining contaminants are then subjected to finefiltration adaptable to particular needs, with fitering ranging from 5 to 25 micron.

Treatment by activated carbon: Activated carbon removes the unpleasant tastes and odours, as well as pasticited and herbicides from the water. Activated carbon is contained in a seperate holder to enable easy replacement.

 
The Cintropur DUO & TIO-UV Range


CINTROPUR® offers a wide range of devices for sterilization by UV radiation.

The UV range comprises models 1000, 2000 and 10000 with standard connections of ľ ",1" or 2''. The devices are available in a version for professionals or in a version called ECO with an excellent value for money. Flow rates range from 1 to 10 m3/h.

This particular disinfection method is known as one demolishing legionella, microbes, bacteria, viruses and protozoa, while having no negative impacts on the environment. There are possibilities of combining mechanical filter + UV and activated carbon with DUO, TIO® (Two in one) TIO®+UV. The efficiency of the treatment is proven by bio-dosimetry tests.
Innovative and, with its ingenious conception, the TIO-UV is ideal for the integral treatment of rainwater.

Sterilight Platinum 950

The Sterilight Platinum SP Series is based on the feature-laden Platinum™ ICE controller and Sterilight's Flow-Pace™ UV intensity monitor. This combination allows for 2-stage flow pacing where the lamps operate at half power when water is not flowing and full-power when the water is running. This allows the system to operate with minimal power requirements (excellent for applications powered by solar power systems!), at a lower operating cost, and with less heat build-up.

The Platinum™ ICE controller provides constant output current and a universal power input (100-250V/50-60Hz), as well as visually displaying % UV intensity, remaining lamp life, and total hours of operation.

The system comes with a set of dry contacts allowing for the external hook-up of a remote device such as a solenoid valve (sold separately - see below), as well as a self-diagnostic check upon start-up, and an RJ-11 communications port. Using high-output, Sterilume™-HO coated low pressure germicidal UV lamps coupled with electropolished 316 stainless steel, axial flow sterilization chambers, the Platinum SP Series provides very high flow throughput capacity in a very compact system.

The UV lamp provides a 4-log (99.99%) reduction of bacteria, viruses, and protozoan cysts (cryptosporidium and giardia) at the specified maximum flow rates. Lamp life is 9,000 hours (1 year).

A suitable flow restrictor is also included to ensure that you do not exceed the maximum recommended UV dose.


Features of the Sterilight Platinum UV purification system

  • Equipped to inactivate chlorine-resistant parasites such as Cryptosporidium and Giardia, harmful bacteria like E.Coli and viruses not visible to the naked eye.
  • Specially designed and tested Sterilume™-HO lamps provide consistent and reliable ultraviolet output over the entire life of the lamp (9000 hours) to ensure continuous purification.
  • The Flow-Pace™ UV Sensor promises system stability and long-life reliability with low power consumption, reducing operating costs and heat transfer into the water.
