Disinfection by UV Radiation

As a means of disinfection, UV (ultraviolet) radiation is environment-friendly and its popularity grows dynamically.

UV radiation destroys the genetic structure of microorganisms and renders reproduction impossible. By doing so it kills them. UV radiation destroys effectively bacteria, viruses and cysts. What is of top importance is the fact it kills certain types of viruses that are resistant to conventional chlorination process.

Disinfection effect of UV radiation shows up within 205 – 315 nm. The applied low-pressure mercury (or amalgam) discharge lamps emit a wavelength of 254 nm that is very close to the maximum disinfection effect (260 nm). Sufficient time to kill the microorganisms is mere 3 – 5 s.
