The possibility of microbial contamination in water and other liquids long ago prompted Fuller Ultraviolet Corporation to provide an ultraviolet product line with the principal intention of destroying bacteria and other micro-organisms. Since 1951, our research and development has led the way in achieving state-of-the-art UV equipment not only for air and surface treatment, but also for liquid applications. Thousands of satisfied customers provide ample proof that wherever liquid contamination is possible there is considerable obligation to correct the problem ...with the best equipment...as a matter of sanitary decency, as well as for legal and economic considerations.
Successful treatment of water and other transparent liquids with UV depends on a number of factors, such as clarity, absorption of ultraviolet, amount of suspended matter, flow rates, temperature and, of course, the type or kind of microbial contamination. The transmission characteristics of UV on liquids is dependent on the depth of the liquid, as well as the absorption coefficient of the liquid. It’s interesting to note that the ultraviolet intensity through liquids decreases logarithmically with the distance from the lamp. In addition, the absorption coefficient further relates itself to the presence of minute traces of iron compounds and organic matter. When used as directed, Fuller UV Liquid Purifiers will provide a minimum dosage of 40,000 mw/sec/cm2. The Fuller product line is manufactured in various sizes to accommodate different flow rates for a “single pass through” or a recirculatory system, as in industrial storage tanks, hot tubs, spas and swimming pools. Fuller UV can provide liquid purification systems for Commercial and Industrial Applications.
The use of ultraviolet germicidal energy in rain water applications has been on the rise over the last few years, as the need for cost effective, “green” methods have been more aggressively pursued. Some areas of use in a green environment where UV may be beneficial is showering, washing of clothes or even drinking, dependent upon the degree of system in the line process. Considerations for ultraviolet use include: Effective Pre-Filtration: Ultraviolet lamps must “see” the target pathogens in order to effectively destroy them. Large and even small scale particulates can deter the performance of the UV rays by masking bacteria. Proper filtration methods can remove these particulates, allowing the lamps to operate at their full potential. Testing: In the event the facility is near an industrial area or if the structure’s roof can contaminate any water trapped for use, it is crucial to test the quality of the water on a continuous basis.
Some liquids, such as juices and liquid sugars are opaque and can be difficult to treat due to their low transmission, color, viscosity and occasional higher temperatures. Fuller relies on a “thin film” design to provide an effective, sound treatment. Thin film design is staging the lamps in a tight, close proximity to each other, which sends the liquid sweetener product to a proper disinfection range. Internal baffles are also common in these systems to create turbulence inside the vessel. This turbulence adds to the resonance time and enhances ultraviolet germicidal output.
