Because it is important to drink pure water every day
Water treatment started many years before Christ. At the time, people already knew that water could be purified through heat, and used sand and gravel filtration, boiling and filtering.
Their motivation was to improve the taste of the water, knowing they still could not distinguish clean water from dirty water. They knew how important it was to reduce turbidity in the water, but they didn’t know much about chemical contamination or microorganisms.
The purification method reduces the concentration of contaminants such as :
- suspended particles
- viruses and fungus
In this section, you will understand how UV water disinfection systems work, the parts of a UV system, and what you should consider before purchasing an ultraviolet water disinfection system.
In the left menu, you will find the complete structure of the document.
We have classified it into several categories:
- Evolution of UV disinfection
- UV water purification systems
- Where can ultraviolet be used?
- Other water disinfection options
What is water purification?
It is the removal process of several compounds such as :
- unwanted chemicals
- biological agents
- suspended solids
- Gas emissions in water
The purpose is to produce water suitable for a specific use. Most water is treated with disinfectant for domestic use (drinking water).
Also, purification can also be designed for a variety of other uses, such as meeting the requirements:
- for medical purposes
- in the pharmaceutical field
- chemical and industrial treatments
Methods used for water disinfection vary. Some of these methods include the use of ultraviolet radiation.
UV purification is an effective process in removing bacteria from water:
- Ultraviolet (UV) radiation destroys pathogenic microorganisms in the water being treated
- Then, they destroy the pathogenic microorganisms by striking their genetic core (DNA)
