Water purification devices to ultraviolet radiation.

Because of its simplicity and efficiency, water sterilization by UV radiation has greatly expanded in recent years. UV radiation at 253.7 Nm is part of the solar radiation which is reproduced artificially.

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.

Ultraviolet (UV) in water purifiers UV Cintropur, what is it ?

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 radiation from the sun

Ultraviolet emissions from the sun seen by the SOHO EIT telescope.
SOHO stands for Solar and Heliospheric Observatory in French meaning "Solar Heliospheric Observatory and" is actually an artificial satellite into orbit around the sun. Its main objective is to study the sun. It is the result of a collaboration between the European Space Agency (ESA) and NASA.

Ultraviolet categories

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 (400-315 nm)

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.

UVb (315-280 nm)

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).

UVc (280-100 nm)

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:

  • UVC from 280 to 200 nm,
  • VUV 200 to 100 nm (only used in vacuum),
  • XUV 100 to 10 nm (electromagnetic transitions between UV and X-rays).

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.

Ultraviolet radiation emitted by a lamp designed for sterilization applications

These lamps are UVC germicidal and sterilize everything from them. The UV treatment is the future of ecological water disinfection. This technique avoids the use of toxic chemicals. Large groups of the water treatment sector are forced to resort to solutions more ecological to disinfect water to cope with the strong growth of the global need for clean water.

Greener technical and significantly less expensive or polluting than chlorine

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.

How does a treatment with ultraviolet radiation in the UV water purifiers Cintropur ?

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.

Can you drink water treated with UV radiation Cintropur UV water purifiers ?

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.

Should we filter the water that has been treated by ultraviolet radiation in the UV water purifiers Cintropur ?

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.
