Uv water treatment technology - reduces total organic carbon.

Jun 19, 2018

In many high-tech and laboratory devices, organic matter can interfere with the production of highly purified water.

There are many ways to remove organic matter from water, and more commonly used methods include activated carbon and reverse osmosis.

Shorter wavelengths of ultraviolet (185 nanometers) can also effectively reduce total organic carbon.


Shorter wavelengths have more energy, so they break down organic matter.

Uv oxidation of organic reaction process is very complex, uv water treatment technology, its main principle is through the free hydroxide with strong oxidation ability, the oxidation of organic matter into water and carbon dioxide.

As with the ozone removal system, the ultraviolet radiation from the organic carbon is three to four times as high as the traditional disinfection system.

Ultraviolet water treatment technology - degradation of residual chlorine in municipal water treatment and water supply systems, chlorination is very necessary.

However, in the process of industrial production, in order to avoid adverse effects on the product, the removal of residual chlorine in water is often the necessary pretreatment.

The method of eliminating residual chlorine has activated carbon bed and chemical treatment.

The drawback of activated carbon water treatment is that it needs to be constantly regenerated, and it often encounters problems with bacteria.

Both 185 and 254 nano-wavelengths of ultraviolet light have been shown to effectively destroy the chemical bonds between chlorine and chlorine.

Although great uv energy is needed to play a role, but the advantages of uv water treatment technology is that this method does not need to add any drugs into the water, don't need to store chemicals, easy maintenance, and at the same time and the role of sterilization and removal of organic matter.
