Ultra Violet Sterilizers/Clarifiers

A UV Sterilizer/Clarifier eliminates green water, creating beneficial pond conditions for fish and plants. The ultra-violet light destroys algae and prevents single-cell algae’s ability to reproduce. They ensure crystal clear water, eliminate the need for chemicals and takes an environmentally friendly approach to the control of green water.

What Is UV?
Ultraviolet light is a spectrum of light just below the range of visible to the human eye (as shown at right). UV light is divided into four distinct spectral areas with UV-C being (250-280 nm) the most lethal range to living microorganisms. UV-C is capable of altering the DNA of living organisms and rendering them unable
to reproduce.

UV-C light, when applied properly as a problematic waterborne algae solution, is far superior to ozone and harmful algaecides. Most importantly UV does not leave a residual in the water.

The "Required Microorganism UV Dose" bar graph below reveals specific microorganisms and their established UV doses required to achieve successful UV treatment.

The speed at which the waterborne microorganisms travels through the UV housing (across the UV lamp field) establishes the UV dose (µWs/cm²) received.

Limitations: UV Sterilization treatment takes place inside the UV exposure housing. Exposure time between the waterborne microorganism and the UV-C light is critical in achieving successful UV disinfection. The condition of the application’s water will determine how well the UV-C light penetrates through it (UV transmittance). UV-C is absorbed by the targeted microorganism or by other organic waterborne particles. It is for this reason that UV equipment should be positioned after the mechanical filter.
