These products have as UVC radiation of a much greater intensity than sunlight and are therefore used for the sterilization of water. The technology of choice for disinfection is recognized for the removal of legionella, microbes, bacteria, viruses, protozoa and, in the environmental respect. This is the ideal way to remove the water of microorganisms and to make it drinkable bacteriological level. This water will be recognized as safe if the chemical parameters are checked and satisfactory.
- UV Rotation to the clearance
- Easy maintenance
- 100% effective physical disinfection without odors or tastes
- Integrated Flow limiter
Ultraviolet radiation is electromagnetic radiation of a wavelength intermediate between that of visible light and that of X-ray About 5% of the sun's energy is emitted in the form of UV radiation. UV ULTRA name means "beyond" and violet "purple" is the color of the higher frequency (and therefore wavelength shorter) of visible light. It was in 1801 that the German physicist Johann Wilhelm Ritter discovered the basis of their chemical action on the silver chloride.
Ultraviolet can be subdivided into near UV (380-200 nm wavelength) and extreme ultraviolet (200-100 nm). The range of UV radiation is subdivided into three categories.
UVa whose wavelength is relatively long, represent 95% of UV radiation reaching the surface of the earth and can deeply penetrate the skin. They are responsible for tanning and accelerate skin aging by altering protein synthesis. Thereby destroying collagen resulting in the appearance of wrinkles. By cons, UVA are beneficial for certain types of skin conditions such as psoriasis.
The UVb them are medium wavelength and produce significant biological activity, but does not penetrate beyond the superficial layers of the skin, they are generally absorbed by the horny layer of the skin (melanin). They are responsible for burns ticking, being capable of producing high amounts of free radicals in the skin cells, sunburn and inflammation. Skin aging guaranteed destruction of collagen fibers. The skin sun capital is exhausted promoting skin cancer. High intensities of UVb are dangerous to the eyes and cause photokeratitis (coup d'arc welder).
UV is harmful in high doses to human health causing skin cancers such as melanoma, or premature skin aging (wrinkles), burns (sunburn), cataracts. The spectrum of UVC consists of three bands of issue:
Short wavelength UVC is the most damaging and virtually (theoretically) filtered by the ozone layer of the atmosphere. The range of UV water purifiers Cintropur uses UVC 280-100 nm to disinfect water.
Disinfection of water by UV avoids the use of reaction products such as chlorine or bleach at more competitive costs. This technique still requires that turbidity (cloudy) is small. Recent innovations on the use of fiber optics offset this concern for turbidity. A priori, no risk is known to date even if everything can never be expected. Radiation disappear after a few seconds, which should reassure most specialists.
UV alter the nucleic acid (DNA) viruses, bacteria, fungi or parasites so they can not reproduce, so they are considered inactivated. The UV treatment does not alter the chemical composition of the water as it adds nothing except energy. Note that inactivated microorganisms are not removed from the water, and no dirt or heavy metal particles or hard minerals (calcium, magnesium, etc.). Other facilities are needed to purify water. If your drinking water comes from municipal water or regular water testing your well indicate that it is safe to drink, you probably do not need a treatment system to UV rays. Regarding the potability of well water, it is more prudent to submit to UV radiation safety.
Yes unambiguous. The treated water to UV radiation can be consumed safely. No chemicals are added to water and the physicochemical composition is not changed.
It is recommended to install a pre-filter before UV treatment to clarify the best. More water is clearer, the UV treatment is guaranteed effective. Aguagreen also recommended to place a filter in the catalytic Agualite Carbolite or after the UV treatment to optimize the purification of the water in terms of purity and organoleptic qualities.
