Chlorination/ozonation is the method of adding chlorine to drinking water to disinfect it and kill germs. Different processes may be used to achieve safe levels of chlorine in drinking water.
Chlorine is accessible as compressed elemental gas, sodium hypochlorite solution (NaOCl) or solid calcium hypochlorite (Ca(OCl)2 1. There are many water treatment solutions available. It can prove to be beneficial for you to conduct thorough research before choosing anyone.
One option obtainable is an Ultraviolet Water Disinfection System. Keep reading to learn more about the uses of Ultraviolet Systems!
What exactly is a UV disinfection system and how does it work?
The UV treatment process is an extremely instant physical method that causes a molecular rearrangement of the genetic material, known as DNA, of the microorganism,
which renders it inactive and incapable of causing infection. UV Disinfection water chlorination system is used in many different applications starting from the purification of drinking water in individual homes to disinfecting the water supply facility of entire townships and world.
Also, UV treatment of water chlorination is recognized as the safer, environmentally-friendly and more cost-effective way to make clean for industrial applications.
How does a UV disinfection system work for water chlorination?
In the UV water disinfection technology, Ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) uses 253.7 nanometers ultraviolet light to kill microorganisms. it is effective in destroying the nucleic acids in these organisms so that their DNA is disrupted, No bacteria, viruses, molds or their spores can persist when exposed to the correct dose of UV light. Therefore UV is considered the best solution for water sterilization.
What are the benefits of UV disinfection systems?
1. Lower running cost
A UV disinfection plant is much more economical to run as compared to chlorination with a typical payback period of 1.5 years against a chlorination plant using chemical
compound sodium hypochlorite(NaOCI).
2. Simple and failsafe operation:
An ultraviolet disinfection system works with very little or no user intervention. The online tracking system constantly checks the disinfection method and will alert the user in case of any drop in the performance of the UV water ozonation system.
UV disinfects in seconds and does not require any contact tank or retention time saving valuable real estate, especially in urban environments.
4. Environmentally Friendly
UV uses no chemical and forms no by-products. Compare this to chlorine which produces dangerous carcinogens such as tri halo methanes which further pollute our environment, and endanger our health.
A UV disinfection system does not need the procurement of dangerous chemicals like Chlorine Gas or Sodium Hypochlorite which can lead to burns and respiratory issues.
6. Energy Efficient
Well designed systems like Alfaa ultraviolet systems use extremely energy-efficient UV radiation sources that consume a fraction of electricity as compared to other alternative technologies.
What about the maintenance of UV disinfection systems?
There may be some cases where the water is not adequately pre-treated and turbidity levels are higher than desired. In such cases, routine inspection and cleaning can be carried out every six months. In the case of high turbidity and hardness, the cleaning frequency would possibly be accumulated.
Finally, ultraviolet radiation has a limited life and must be replaced once it is exhausted. In the unlikely event of premature failure of the lamp, the tracking circuit can provide the signal
to advise replacement.
