Wavelengths from 200 to 300nm have a bactericidal effect.
UVC radiation has a strong bactericidal force.
It is absorbed by DNA and destroys its structure, thereby removing the activity of living cells.
Microorganisms such as viruses, bacteria, yeasts, and fungi become harmless in a matter of seconds.
As long as the radiation intensity is high enough, uv sterilization is a reliable and environmentally friendly method, because no chemical additives are required.
In addition, microbes cannot produce antibodies to ultraviolet light.
When with ultraviolet sterilization, can use a single chromatographic emission wavelength of 254 nm low pressure mercury lamp, or launch a broadband spectrum to cover the entire range of from 200 to 300 nm medium pressure mercury lamp, can also use only the emission wavelength of 222 nm excimer lamps.
Advantages of the water treatment of century source uv lamp:
It has no effect on taste or smell;
No need to add chemicals;
No environmental pollution;
Short radiation time;
Effective for chlorine-resistant pathogens;
Easy to operate;
Low maintenance requirement of process;
The operating cost is extremely low.
