Medium pressure UV systems

 

PREVENTING reactivation of bacteria -> permanent disinfection of treated water DISINFECTION of water and removal of combined chlorine simultaneously DUE TO unique LifeAGE® technology lamp lifetime can reach up to 18 000 operating hours.

advantages and disadvantages of Medium Pressure UV Technology

Simple installation

Acceptable price

No bacteria reactivation (the disinfection is always permanent)

Removes bound chlorine

Ecological disinfection without chemicals

Higher energy consumption than UVL (but easily outweighed by benefits)

It is well known that bacteria and other microorganisms are capable of repairing their DNA damaged by ultraviolet (UV) radiation. Known as ‘reactivation’, it is a natural defense mechanism that has evolved over millions of years.

This self-repair ability posesses obvious problems when UV disinfection technology is used to treat potable water, swimming pool water, effluent or other liquids. A study proved that polychromatic medium pressure UV radiation causes permanent damage to bacteria and microorganisms, where monochromatic low pressure UV does not.

For any industry where UV is used to disinfect water or effluent, the operator needs to be sure that the treatment is permanent – that is the reason why to use medium pressure UV systems! The last version of DIN 19643 Norm clearly states: Only UV-M (medium pressure UV) systems can properly disinfect swimming pool water and lower the level of combined chlorine. Low-pressure UV systems are therefore not appropriate to be used for these purposes.

LifeAGE® technology

LIFETECH developed unique LifeAGE® technology exploiting advanced electronic power (AEP). Which in synergy with our profound knowledge of UV technology allows you to enjoy the lowest operating costs available today.

WIPER OF QUARTZ SLEEVES

It is necessary to periodically clean the surface of quartz sleeves. There are 3 options:

  • Clean them manually (no wiper so you need to put the quartz sleeve out and clean it with a piece of cloth and your hand)
  • Manual wiper (recommended for: private pools and jacuzzies)
  • Automatic wiper (recommended for: public pools and jacuzzies, drinking and waste water plants)

Medium pressure UVM

Medium pressure UVM is the only UV technology to eliminate bound chlorine in pools – proven by German norm (DIN 19643).

UVM reduces Bound Chlorine

Asthma

Eye redness

Allergies

Skin irritation and drying

Chlorine pool smell

Best UV water disinfection (significantly better than by UVL)

RETURN ON INVESTMENT

8 to 16 months

savings of fresh water & heating

enhanced atmosphere, no chlorine smell

eventually suitable for babies and people with asthma

more customers & happier customers
