Aquatech 2011. Ok so I’m off to the world’s leading exhibition in all things water related. It dawned on me the other day that it’s likely that I’m going to see the competition there, the Chlorine guys. I’ve decided I might go have a chat with them and see where they stand on the notion […]
There is a single answer that is all encompassing for this question. You want your UV unit as close to your outlets as possible. On a single outlet, we’ll use the trusty kitchen sink pictured for our example, you want the unit under the sink. Having in your loft would mean there’s more opportunity […]
Ok we’re going to use our imagination. Imagine that tiny specs of dirt, hardly visible to the human eye are as big as a tennis ball. Personally I think of them as a little ball of mud. Now, because UV can only shine on the outside shell of the ball, everything inside is hidden from […]
To answer my title properly I suppose I should compare it to another treatment method, for this example I’m going to use Chlorine. Chlorine is the most widely used water treatment method in the UK and I would guess the world (I’ve got no evidence to support that but I would think […]
As the resident in-house blogger at our company. I thought I’d leave some honest feedback on how I’m getting on with the blog so far. This is somewhat of an interim blog, so normal informative service will resume next week.
Recently inspired by Neil Pasricha’s ’1000 Awesome things’ award winning blog, I’ve decided to try to spice up my blog a […]
What is it and what does it do, a valid question that for once I won’t need to trawl the internet to find the answer, I know it already.
A UV transmission value or T10 is the percentage of UV light will make it from one side to the other when travelling through a 10mm […]
No, it turns out you can’t kill plastic. I’ve actually had a good look into it and if it has DNA, exposure to UV light will mess it up. I choose my words carefully, I thought that going into thymine dimmer reactions and excision might confuse us all (That proves I’ve been researching).
I’ll explain, […]
As part of our service here at UVO3 we offer custom design solutions for disinfection in all kinds of environments. What this slick piece of wordmanship means is that if you have an application that needs disinfecting and there’s not something on the market that can do it, we’ll make you something that does.
I don’t know, it depends on what you’re using your UV unit to do. I’ll give you some creative solutions in which you would need one fitted. If you have the situation I describe or a similar one then you may need one.
An over temperature safety sensor or TSS, is simply […]
How has UV disinfection changed since its humble beginnings nearly 100 years ago? Well I’ve just found out so I’ll be happy to pass on my newly found wealth of knowledge.
From the empty cylindrical chambers (excepting the UV lamp) that have been around from Ye Olde Times, the newest addition to UV flow technology is the […]
This will be a summary because even with my limited but ongoing knowledge of UV, this subject is massive. I will outline what UV does and doesn’t do and hopefully make it interesting while I go. I know when I looked at Wikipedia when I was new to UV, the huge page I was confronted […]
Ok, you want to know how to reset a Sterilight ballast. Good news, it’s easy. If you’re wondering why you haven’t figured it out on your own yet, this is because Sterilight made it near impossible to do by accident.
So, by following these few simple instructions, the ballast will not only stop beeping at […]
