ultraviolet disinfectionReading time:
As previously discussed the main advantage of UUV disinfection are as follows (see the oxidants and disinfectants) :
- pathogens can be inactivated in a short period of time;
- virtually no by-products formation;
- a wide range of pathogens are sensitive to UV with in particular a strong effectiveness on protozoa cysts.
These advantages render UV disinfection as a prime choice for the disinfection of UWW, IWW and drinking water.
