QUESTIONS ABOUT UV DISINFECTION
During the operation of high-quality PURION UV-plants and spares no harmful substances can occur.
Smell and taste of the water are not influenced by uv-radiation.
What is the service life of an UV-lamp?
In case of continuous operation PURION GmbH recommends replacement of the uv-lamp every 1,5 years. Life time is reduced by frequent on-and-off switching.
The correct practical application of PURION uv-plants is an adequate substitute for boiling the water. Nevertheless in case of official directives you should follow the order because often the true reason for the requirement is unknown.
POSSIBILITIES AND BOUNDARIES
Cloudiness is caused by particulate material which can not be abolished by the use of uv-plants.
Minerals cause the hardness of water. Minerals are not affected by the use of uv-radiation. Therefore UV-radiation doesn’t have a water softening effect.
UV-treatment ensures germfree water. In addition elimination of chemical contamination has to be ensured to guarantee potable water.
Is it possible to integrate the uv-plant into the main pipe?
Dimension of the PURION uv-plants enables direct installation into the main pipe. Therefore germfree water can be extracted from all use points by installation of a single uv-plant.
PURION uv-plants can be run with 12 V or 24 V DC. Therfore operation without central power supply is possible.
What happens in case of power cuts?
To run PURION uv-plants adequate power supply is necessary. PURION optionally equips the uv-plants with decentral power stations to ensure power supply in case of temporary power cuts.
Is it possible to treat wellwater with uv-radiation?
UV-plants can be operated without hesitation to disinfect wellwater.
DESIGN OF CONSTRUCTION
Replacement of the lamps can be carried out with less effort also from laities. Due to our innovative design of construction no tool is needed.
Do I now have to buy a new pump?
The UV-plants will be integrated into existing circulation or flow rate systems. Therefore a new pump is not needed to operate the UV-plant.
If correct maintenance and replacement of the UV lamp is ensured PURION UV-plants are applicable for an unlimited period. Please read our maintenance guidelines.
Who is able to install and replace UV lamps?
The installation and replacement of the UV lamps can easily be arranged by laities. Please read our maintenance guidelines before.
