UVO3 are currently supporting Sterilight with their ‘Get Genuine’ campaign. The campaign is aimed at informing end users that while alternative lamps and other equipment might work in your UV unit, they are not completely compatible. The Sterilight systems have been continuously tweaked and refined over the years to be a complete and robust product. [...]
UV transmission or T10 is the ability of the subject to have UV light pass through it. Now usually this will mean liquids or air. Where air is negligibly constant, liquids, including clear liquids will have greatly varied levels of transmission depending on its composition.
If we are talking about liquids, we fill a 10ml square [...]
So as we look forward to another calender year, there are not no huge changes that we know of yet waiting to get implemented. So a couple of the smaller things we’re looking forward to including a table having wheels engineered on to it and UV world domination are nice little things to keep us [...]
My blog may seem a touch under Christmassy for this time of the year. That’s because recent events have crashed our website. It seems using nice grammar and lining it with seasonally sympathetic images as we did last year, has whipped the internet clientele into a frenzy. While being modest on disclosing the number of [...]
To put it bluntly, it destroys DNA by breaking the bonds that hold it together. That statement is true no matter how complex you get with explaining it. It doesn’t melt the DNA and turn a single cell organism into a blob of goo. It simply cripples the organism’s ability to function. It’s much like [...]
Ok so I get to make an announcement and I’m very excited about it. With great pleasure I am pleased to introduce a new line of units from Van Remmen. As of now, the new validated or ‘V’ series units are available, superseding the older ‘D’ range units. Now, unsurprisingly these units offer a greater [...]
Here is Van Remmen’s brand new video on how their flow management system works. In the spirit of ‘a picture paints a thousand words’ I think it nicely shows what I describe in previous blogs about the flow plate.
At 1.2m long the D40 is the shortest Van Remmen unit that utilises their multi-lamp reactor design. It houses three long-life 120W lamps and comes with DN100 inlet and outlet connections as standard. The D40 is currently quoted as treating up to 89m³/hr of water and comes with Van Remmen’s most robust and efficient [...]
What does this little add-on options do? Well hopefully I’ll be able to explain, please do remember though that this is in my own words and I don’t refer to manuals and the like unless I’m quoting numbers.
The function of the temperature sensor is to stop hot water coming out of the [...]
UV has been a known mutagen i.e. it has been proved to degrade DNA, for over 100 years. In 1903 the Nobel Prize was awarded to Niels Finsen for his application of UV radiation to combat TB. The first use of UV in regards to water disinfection was in 1916 (though I can’t find where and [...]
This little blighter comes in many different forms but all are highly vulnerable to UV treatment. Despite being quite nasty when this gets into your system, it can be all but sterilised with reasonably low levels of UV treatment. You can easily pick this up in a pool due to it being quite resistant to [...]
With all UV lamps, there comes a point where you will need to replace it. Here is a simple guide on how to do it yourself with regards to a Van Remmen UV unit.
First, you need to take out the old lamp. To do this you need to undo the black locking plug at [...]
