Ultra Violet System
UV radiation from ultraviolet water systems alone is not suitable for water with high levels of suspended solids, turbidity, color, or soluble organic matter. These materials can react with UV radiation, and reduce disinfection performance.
Water turbidity makes it difficult for the ultraviolet radiation to penetrate water. If your water supply has these characteristics, a Sediment Prefilter (5 micron or less) should be installed before your UV water purification system to remove particulate matter prior to UV water disinfection.
