UV Disinfection System Gets Nod
Severn Trent Services' UltraDynamics 8102-HO-200 ultraviolet disinfection system has received validation test certification that conforms to the protocols prescribed by the EPA's Ultraviolet Disinfection Guidance Manual (UVDGM). The UVDGM provides technical guidance on the application of ultraviolet light for the disinfection of drinking water by public water systems. The system provides an ultraviolet dose of 30,000 to 40,000 micro-watt seconds per square centimeter at a wavelength of 254 nm ultraviolet energy for the deactivation of microorganisms. Ultraviolet light has been proven to be an effective method for inactivating waterborne pathogens and viruses.
