Ultraviolet radiation will kill pathogens such as bacteria, viruses or fungi, yeasts, molds and allergens as soon as it passes through the stainless steel tube.
The UV is installed either as soon as the general water arrives in the house, or just before a tap to drink in a cold or hot drink. Ultraviolet sterilization is considered to be one of the most effective water treatment methods for disinfection.
Water enters through the lower port of the UV generator cell and swirls around a low-pressure mercury vapor lamp, which emits powerful ultraviolet light energy at a wavelength of 235.7 nm. This wavelength will achieve optimal UV disinfection of the water, as this dose of UV-C is sufficient to induce higher levels of nucleic acid damage and thus overcome or overwhelm DNA repair mechanisms.
