There are more than half a million people in the UK whose only source of drinking water is from a private water supply.
These sources fall into one of three main categories: wells, springs or streams and boreholes, Our Ultra Violet (U.V.) sterilisers can help you to obtain bacteria-free drinking water from these types of supplies.
U.V. light destroys the cell DNA (or RNA in the case of viruses) making the micro organisms inactive.
Our water sterilisers employ a low-pressure mercury vapour discharge lamp surrounded by a water jacket whose inner wall is made from a special UVC-transparent quartz material. The lamp produces a very strong spectral line at 254nm in the shortwave UVC region, which is the waveband most lethal to micro-organisms.
Please note that UV Sterilisers do not improve the taste of the feed water.
They should be incorporated into a system comprising the appropriate water filters to remove particles and to treat the water to make it palatable. Our highly trained staff can advise on the appropriate system to meet any combination of feed water flow and quality
