How Does Ultraviolet Disinfection Work?

UV irradiation systems disinfect by inactivating pathogenic microorganisms, such as viruses, bacteria and parasites. In the UV-C light spectrum (200-280 nm), the wavelength 254nm has been proven to be the most efficient wavelength to inactivate micro-organisms by damaging the nucleic acids (DNA and RNA), which disrupts the organism’s ability to replicate.

In normal applications, UV has the advantage that no chemicals are added to the water being treated and that no disinfection by-products are formed. Due to the small foot print, the UV equipment can be easily integrated into most existing water treatment plants.
