UV lampe for disinfecting of fresh and reverse osmosis water - with quartz glass and ballast - is reducing germs.
The radiation with UV light is suitable for reducing bacteria, viruses and protozoa (e.g. special stages of fish parasites). Die UV rays destroy the DNA of organisms and causes the death of the cells. The disinfecting with UV light generates no chemicals and is suitable for aquaria, too. The stainless steel version is not suitable for sea water tanks, because pitting corrosion will occure.
These UV systems are suitable for applications in drinking water and fresh water field. The massive housing resists pressures up to 7 bar and is therefore applicable for R.O. system. The UV lamp is seperated from the water by a quartz glass - maximum safety is achieved. The normal operation of the system is displayed with a green LED at the electronical ballast. If the system fails a red light is flashing and a beeper sounds. It is very easy to change the lamp, any special tools are not necessary. The interval for cleaning depends on the quality of the water.
