ultraviolet disinfection

Reading 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.
