Principle of Operation UV water disinfection system design has been carefully conceived to provide adequate germicidal dosage throughout the disinfection chamber. The dosage, as it applies to UV disinfection, is a function of time and the intensity of UV radiation to which the water is exposed. Exposure time is related to the flow rate, the higher the flow rate, the lower the exposure time or the lower the flow rate, the higher the exposure time. The UV intensity is the amount of energy, per unit time, emitted by germicidal lamp. The Dosage is the product of UV intensity and the exposure time.
No known toxic or significant nontoxic byproducts No danger of overdosing Does not require storage of hazardous material Adds no smell to the final water product Requires very little contact time

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
