UV radiation from ultraviolet water systems alone is not suitable for water with high levels of suspended solids, turbidity, color, or soluble organic matter. These materials can react with UV radiation, and reduce disinfection performance. Water turbidity makes it difficult for the ultraviolet radiation to penetrate water. If your water supply has these characteristics, a sediment prefilter (5 micron or less) should be installed before your UV water purification system to remove particulate matter prior to UV water disinfection.
1. They are available in both ozone generating and ozone-free generating types.
2. The lamp life can arrive at 13,000 hours.
3. Amalgam lamps can work over varying temperatures (4 – 40°C).
4. They can save in number of lamps, system components, reducing operation costs

The frequency used in killing micro-organisms is 254 nanometers (nm). Ultraviolet Water Treatment Systems use a lamp that creates these UV waves lengths. As water passes through a UV water treatment system, living organisms are exposed to the UV light and the living organisms effectually killing them
