What Organisms Are Destroyed by UV Light?
UV Light Dose Strength and How it Sterilizes your Water: This term is used to define the strength of UV light intensity and
exposure time. Each WaterFixer and Water Safe Pro UV water filter system is independently tested by a certified
labratory for how many gallons per minute can be treated by the UV light to reach full water sterilization.
- WaterFixer Model 1000 UV water filter system sterilizes and purifies up to 4gpm.
- Water Safe Pro UV systems are capable of purifying and sterilizing up to 3gpm.
ORGANISMS DESTROYED BY ULTRAVIOLET LIGHT
- The Number represents the dose of microwatt seconds of energy necessary to sterilize these organisms.
- Inside the UV Chamber, the germicidal ultraviolet lamp emits more than 30,000 microwatt seconds of energy per square centimeter - that's more than enough to destroy any and all of these.
