Ultraviolet Disinfection Equipment

Ultraviolet disinfection uses short-wavelength ultraviolet light to disinfect water by killing bacteria through destruction of nucleic acids and DNA disruption. Ultraviolet disinfection disables microorganisms so they cannot perform vital cellular functions. Ultraviolet disinfection equipment uses LEDs, lamps or bulbs in close contact with water to disinfect it.
