NEW WAYS TO GO – WATER DISINFECTION WITH UV LED TECHNOLOGY
Thanks to the innovative UV-C LED technology, biolite® UV disinfection devices from WM aquatec have an extraordinarily high disinfection performance with a compact design. In contrast to the previous UV technology, there are no environmentally dangerous medium-pressure mercury-vapor lamps here, but the latest UV-C LED technology, which brings enormous advantages with it.
As LEDs do not have a start or warm-up phase, they are switched exclusively at the same time as the water is drawn off, resulting not only in very low power consumption but also in a long service life of several years – without lamp replacement. Therefore biolite® disinfection devices are almost maintenance-free.
The water to be disinfected is irradiated with short-wave UV light in the range of 240-290 nanometers. The genetic information contained in the DNA of the microorganisms adsorbs the energy of the UV-C radiation and is thereby destroyed. Microorganisms, such as viruses and bacteria, can be effectively inactivated by UV-C radiation and prevented from multiplying.
With a flow rate of up to 8 l/ min they are excellent for drinking water in e.g. motorhomes, expedition vehicles, food trucks or yachts. In addition, the LED light sources, the ballast and the control unit are housed in a high-quality stainless steel housing, which represents a plug & play solution with intelligent connections on the electrical and water sides.
AREAS OF APPLICATION
Water disinfection by means of UV-C radiation is a water treatment technology that has been successfully used for decades and is used in the public drinking water supply, in medical areas and in industry.The water to be disinfected is irradiated with short-wave UV light in the range of 240-290 nanometers. The genetic information contained in the DNA of the microorganisms adsorbs the energy of the UV-C radiation and is thereby destroyed. Microorganisms, such as viruses and bacteria, can be effectively inactivated by UV-C radiation and prevented from multiplying.
This purely physical process determines an efficient water disinfection (up to 99.999%), no chemical disinfectants being used.
