Ultraviolet (UV) radiation is a powerful energy from the sun that emits germ killing, disinfectant wavelengths. UVC germicidal lamps replicate specific wavelengths of UV radiation to provide effective and efficient sterilization in many water, surface and air disinfection applications. UVC water sterilization is utilized worldwide and is expected to increase in high-volume applications such as:
- Municipal drinking water systems
- Wastewater treatment plants
- Ballast water treatment systems in ships
- Many industrial water sterilization processes
Due to the continued growth and industrialization and emerging economies, specifically in the Asia-Pacific region such as China and India, there is an increasing need for clean water. Manufacturing facilities, specifically in the oil and gas and chemical industries produce large volumes of wastewater. This wastewater must be treated to prevent significant environmental contamination into groundwater and fresh bodies of water.
There is an increase in private and governmental organizations investing into UV water sterilization systems to provide safe drinking water for communities while protecting the environment.
US EPA Approved UV Water Sterilization for Drinking Water
UV light is an approved method of water sterilization for municipal drinking water systems by the United States Environmental Protection Agency, providing effective inactivation of pathogens. UV sterilization can also be used in a physical process of oxidation when combined with hydrogen peroxide. This water disinfection process does not require the use of any additional chemicals and is highly effective at eliminating harmful germs and microorganisms.
The many advantages of UV water sterilization include:
- A high rate of effectiveness
- Environmentally friendly with no chemicals
- Easy installation
- Ease-of-use with little to no maintenance
Due to these many advantages with effective and efficient water sterilization, UV germicidal lamp suppliers are expected to supply a steady and increasing demand.
