Shopping for a UV System? Design Considerations and Operation Maintenance Issues
Abstract:This paper reviews UV disinfection equipment lines from different manufacturers, and summarizes and/or compares different aspects of the design and maintenance of different types of UV systems. The successful performance of an UV disinfection system not only depends on good design but also proper operations and maintenance. When designing a UV system, following factors and system components need to be considered: wastewater quality characteristics, flow rate, UV lamp type, configuration, cleaning system, UV chamber, and power cabinet. Proper operation of the UV system requires regular mechanical, electrical and process checks and routine maintenance.
