UVLX Range - 800 Watt Amalgam - Ultra High Output Low Pressure
The UVLX series features the very latest in low pressure Amalgam UV lamp technology and optimised UV chamber design to deliver amazing performance at a fraction of the size and operational power compared to standard low pressure UV systems.
Designed for municipal drinking water, the UVLX design is centred around the market leading 800 Watt Amalgam UV lamp that provides significant advantages over standard 200 Watt, 325 Watt and 330 Watt UV lamps.
Enhanced Variable Power: The 800 Watt Amalgam UV lamp features a specially design secondary control circuit that allows the UV lamp to run at operational powers of only 30% power. Compared to 330 Watt lamps which can become unstable and extinguish below 60% power, the 800 Watt Amalgam lamp will safely operate between 100% power and 30% power (70% turndown), providing significant flexibility to operators wishing to match the operational power of their UV plant to varying flow rates and seasonal water quality parameters.
Increased Lamp Life: The 800 Watt UV lamp includes a guaranteed useable lamp life of 16,000 hours minimum. Compared to the industry standard of 12,000 hours for Amalgam UV lamps, this feature allows operators installing the UVLW range to run their UV plant for around 6 months longer before scheduled maintenance is required. This extended lamp life makes the UVLW range one of the most OPEX competitive designs in the world.
Asymmetric Lamp Positioning: Through extensive CFD analysis and field testing, the UVLW chamber design matches hydraulic flow profiles with UV lamp intensity fields inside the UV reactor, eliminating the requirement for baffle plates and flow modifiers. This unique concept has allowed for significant improvements in disinfection efficiency, increasing treatment capacities by up to 30%, whilst using significantly less power and reducing head loss.
Guaranteed Performance & Independent Validation: All UVLX 800 Watt Amalgam UV Systems feature independent validation based on Bioassay testing with live surrogate organisms (T1 & Ms2) at a range of water qualities to guarantee the UV systems performance against microorganisms such as Cryptosporidium, Giardia and Adenovirus.
Independent testing and validation is based on the US EPA Ultraviolet Disinfection Guidance Manual (Long Term 2 Enhanced Surface Water Treatment Rule). Unlike alternative validation protocols, such as DVGW or ONORM, which only test to a single UV dose set point of 40 mJ/cm2, the US EPA UVDGM validation method allows for the selection of multiple data points.
The result is a highly flexible performance validation that allows for guaranteed UV doses between 10 mJ/cm2 RED and 120 mJ/cm2 RED. This is of particular importance when aiming for a log reduction of microorganisms e.g. 3 Log (99.9%) reduction of Cryptosporidium.
By adopting the US EPA UVDGM Validation, UV systems can be sized to provide the correct amount of UV intensity in direct relation to the specified UVT% and microorganism. In the case of UVT% values higher than 90% T10, the power savings are typically 50% when compared to the DVWG and ÖNORM solutions, which can only offer 40 mJ/cm2 in any circumstance.
The above table is based upon the US EPA UVDGM log reduction tables for a 3.0 Log reduction of Cryptosporidium: Requires a 12 mJ/cm2 RED multiplied by the required RED Bias in relation to the UVT% value.
