Popularization of professional classroom knowledge of frame type ultraviolet sterilizer manufacturers

UV disinfection systems are a very effective way to combat microbial contamination in water. However, microorganisms must be exposed to UV-C light in appropriate amounts in order to effectively disinfect the water. UV disinfection systems are used in many different applications, from the purification of drinking water in individual households to the disinfection of water supplies for entire townships. UV treatment of water considered a safer and more cost-effective way to disinfect water for industrial applications

UV Sterilizer for water treatment

Industrial water treatment

UV disinfection is suitable for virtually any application that requires microbe-free, safe and pure water; and there is a chance that water will become contaminated before it reaches the end-use point.

How does a UV disinfection system work?

In UV water disinfection technology, UV light sterilizes by penetrating microorganisms and destroying their DNA. DNA plays an important role in the function and reproduction of an organism, so disrupting the DNA can prevent the organism from being active and reproducing. This UV energy (wavelength 240-280nm) is also very small in sunlight. The same energy is produced at a much stronger intensity with the help of high mercury discharge lamps (often called UV lamps).

No bacteria, virus, mold or their spores can survive when exposed to the correct dose of UV light. Therefore, UV is considered to be the best solution for water disinfection.

Industrial applications of UV disinfection systems

UV disinfection systems are more than just lamps in pipes. UV reactors must be designed to ensure adequate exposure (dose) of all microorganisms to UV light. Based on the hydraulic properties of water; the reactor needs to be optimized to direct flow in order to maximize residence time and enhance turbulence. Well-designed industrial UV water disinfection systems consistently produce exceptional results in industrial applications.

A few examples:

Food and Beverage - According to FDA (Food and Drug Administration) specifications, UV disinfection systems can help achieve water quality

Biopharmaceuticals - Water used in pharmaceutical and healthcare products and CIP (clean-in-place) must be free of chemicals such as chlorine, ozone and pathogens. Most pharmaceutical companies rely on UV systems for water disinfection.

Cosmetics - Microbial and toxin-free water ensures quality and extends the shelf life of cosmetic products. Ultraviolet sterilization is the first choice of the global cosmetics industry.

Centralized Drinking Water - UV drinking water disinfection systems are a simple, affordable solution to ensuring pure water is available at every tap in your home or office

Wastewater Disinfection and Reuse - To address water scarcity and rising freshwater costs, UV disinfection can help treat third-stage wastewater. Ultraviolet systems designed specifically for wastewater can thus sanitize wastewater so that it can be reused for secondary purposes, such as rinsing and gardening.

Swimming pools - Chlorine has traditionally been used to ensure clean water in swimming pools. However, it is increasingly known that after chemical disinfection, chemicals react with many other organic matter to form hundreds of harmful new chemicals. Although UV light is considered a safer and more cost-effective way to disinfect swimming pools.

Benefits of UV Disinfection Systems

Natural - UV rays are nature's way of purifying.

Environmentally friendly - no toxic by-products are formed during UV disinfection

Effective - all known microorganisms are sensitive to UV light

Economical - low operating costs in the disinfection system

Safe and Chemical Free - No chemicals are added, so there is no danger of overdose

Fast - therefore instant contact decontamination

Ease of Management - Well-designed systems, like the Alfaa UV system, have many advanced features such as CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics), high-efficiency electronic ballasts and extremely accurate UV intensity monitors, making them efficient and easy to manage.

Do UV disinfection systems require regular maintenance?

In some cases, the water was not sufficiently pretreated and had low turbidity levels. In this case, routine inspections and cleanings can be performed every 6 months. In cases of high turbidity and hardness, increased cleaning frequency may be required. After that, the UV lamp has a limited life and must be replaced once it is exhausted. In the unlikely event of premature lamp failure, a monitoring circuit will provide a signal to recommend replacement.
