Ultraviolet (UV) sterilisation works by dissociating the DNA structure of living cells thus preventing their multiplication. To destroy molecular chains requires a UV dose dependent on the organism type. At a wavelength of 253.7nm, these units are in the middle of the short-wave UV and UVC region (200-280nm) known for its germicidal properties.

The UV disinfection unit comprises of an enclosed chamber with an inner sleeve of high-purity quartz, which contains one or more shortwave ultraviolet lamps. Water passes through the chamber and is subjected to the UVC, which is transmitted through the quartz sleeve. As the genetic structure of bacteria or viruses in the water is exposed to the UVC it will be destroyed.

Ultraviolet disinfection offers several benefits:

  • It is economical - significantly lower capital, operating and maintenance costs than other disinfection methods.
  • UV does not create toxic substances as do traditional chlorine or newer ozone treatments, nor does it alter the taste or chemical properties of the water.
  • It is a safe and reliable method as nothing is added to the water and it is impossible to overdose UV.
  • UV is highly effective against viruses unlike most chemicals. No organisms are immune to UVC light, though doses vary.
