UV light is effective against contaminants such as bacteria, viruses, mould spores, algae and other micro-organisms as it prevents growth and reproduction. If left untreated, these organisms remain in the water and produce a bio-film coating throughout the water system which harbours more bacteria and makes the water less safe to use or drink. Unlike chlorine or ozone treatments, UV does not create toxic substances or alter the taste and chemical properties of water.
The SPECTRUM Sabre UV systems are capable of treating water from the smallest unit at 4 lpm up to a higher industrial flow rate of 250 lpm. All systems are registered as a WRAS Approved Product.
Typically installed at the point-of-entry or point-of-use, these systems can treat mains water as well as ground water from borehole and other source water. To ensure maximum exposure of UV light to microorganisms rather than suspended solids in the water, pre-filtration is recommended to help prevent a phenomenon known as ‘shadowing’.
