VALIDATION OF FULL-SCALE UV DISINFECTION SYSTEMS BY LAGRANGIAN ACTINOMETRY USING DYED-MICROSPHERES
Abstract:Dyed microspheres were used to characterize the performance of several large-scale UV disinfection systems. The results of these tests demonstrated the assay to yield repeatable, accurate representations of the behavior of a wide range of UV reactor types over a wide range of operating conditions. Moreover, by yielding a measurement of the UV dose distribution, this method allows for development of accurate predictions of the ability of a UV disinfection system to inactivate essentially any microorganism.
