Disinfection by ultraviolet radiation is among the technologies that are increasingly used nowadays to enhance the quality of drinking and pool water treatment. The principle of disinfection involves the photochemical damage of RNA and DNA, proteins, enzymes, or other biologically significant macromolecules.
The effectiveness of disinfection depends on the UV radiation dose, the type of UV lamp used, and their arrangement in relation to the flow direction of drinking or pool water. To choose the appropriate type of UV device, it is necessary to determine and ensure the required UV radiation dose, depending on the flow rate and the water quality in terms of its transmittance, i.e., the concentration and type of dissolved and undissolved substances that affect the reflection or absorption of UV radiation.
Polychromatic vacuum pressure UV lamp types emit UV radiation in the range of 185-400 nm, with the intensity of the emitted UV energy not depending on temperature and can be operated at various levels depending on the type of UV lamp. The different intensity of the emitted UV energy enables replacing up to 12 low-pressure monochromatic UV lamps with one highly efficient UV lamp, which utilizes higher intensity radiation for a shorter period. Increased efficiency leads to smaller dimensions of the UV device and compactness.
The possibility of combining UV radiation with other treatment technologies leads to achieving high water quality. The advantage is reduced operational requirements, dosage of chemicals, and safe and easy operation in automatic mode. The disadvantage is the potential for secondary contamination, so UV radiation itself is not suitable for hygiene purposes. In practice, it is therefore combined, for example, with chlorination.
