“When the well is dry, we learn the worth of water.”
Benjamin Franklin
     
  Water is a chemical substance with the chemical formula H2O. Its molecule contains one oxygen and two hydrogen atoms connected by covalent bonds. Water is a liquid at ambient conditions, but it often co-exists on Earth with its solid state, ice, and gaseous state, water vapor or steam.

Ultraviolet System

Ultraviolet radiation can be used as a pretreatment or polishing step to sterilize and disinfect water. UV systems are typically used to pre-treat a water supply that is considered biologically unsafe (lake or sea water, well water, etc). The UV disinfection process is a non-chemical method for destroying microorganisms by altering their genetic material, and rendering them unable to reproduce.

Xtreme technology utilizes germicidal ultraviolet lamps that produce short wave radiation lethal to bacteria, viruses and other microorganisms present in water. Ultraviolet water treatment purification is a unique and rapid method of water disinfection without the use of heat or chemicals. Through the years ultraviolet technology has become well established as a method of choice for effective and economical water disinfection.

We provide UV water treatment systems from well known brands like Atlantic UV (USA),Aquada UV(Germany)

There are several advantages of using UV rather than a chemical disinfection solution (such as chlorination):

 

  • Virtually all microorganisms are susceptible to Xtreme ultraviolet disinfection.
  • No danger of overdosing, no addition of chemicals.
  • Water is ready for use as soon as it leaves the purifier – no further contact time required.
  • Simple installation and maintenance. Compact units require minimum space.
  • Provides continuous or intermittent disinfection without special attention or measurement.
  • No chlorine taste or corrosion problems.
  • Capacities available from to gallons per minute (g.p.m.).
  • UV Does not alter taste, odour, color or PH of the water.
