UV Disinfection System Achieves Increased Germicidal Efficiency

Efficiency proven via validation testing per National Water Research Institute guidelines

The Calgon Carbon C3500D utilizes high-efficiency 500-Watt lamps. The patent-pending design increases the hydraulic efficiency of the reactor by uniformly exposing the water to a high UV dose while minimizing head loss. Validation testing per National Water Research Institute guidelines has confirmed the increased germicidal efficiency. The company said it uses fewer lamps than other LPHO UV systems, which means a smaller footprint, decreased installation and O&M costs.
