Ultraviolet Systems from ETS
Medium pressure UV systems are able to inactivate chlorine tolerant pathogens, such as Cryptosporidium, from chlorinated water. This inactivation prevents the spread of infection and diseases that can be spread through water or air borne transmission.
Healthy organisms can quickly replicate and quickly spread infection. UV light produced from a medium pressure system will disrupt routine cell functions by breaking the hydrogen cross bonds of the organism. Once the cross bonds are broken, normal cell functions such as replication, assimilation of food, and respiration are stopped. The organism is then rendered non-viable and no longer a threat.
With the pathogens inactivated, the chlorine residual in the water is then able to work more efficiently. The end result is improved water quality!
