UV Sterilisers

Ultraviolet water purification utilises a germicidal ultraviolet lamp that produces short wave radiation lethal to bacteria, viruses and other microorganisms present in water

Stella Systems is proud to be the exclusive Australian marine distributor of Mighty Pure UV sterilisers. Atlantic Ultraviolet Corporation have been designing and manufacturing a complete range of quality UV sterilisers since 1963. We don’t just sell the equipment; we also back it up with a complete installation, commissioning and maintenance service via our marine engineering division Stella Marine.

 

Ultraviolet Water Purification

Ultraviolet water purification utilises a germicidal ultraviolet lamp that produces short wave radiation lethal to bacteria viruses and other microorganisms present in water. Economical and safe, ultraviolet purifiers offer rapid water treatment without the use of heat or dangerous chemicals – often for the lowest cost.

When used as directed to disinfect clear water, Mighty Pure water purifiers provide an ultraviolet dosage in excess of 30000 microwatt seconds per square centimetre, at the end of lamp life (8500 hours). *Nominal ultraviolet dosage necessary to inactivate better than 99% of specific microorganism. Consult factory for more complete listing.

Approximately 95% of the ultraviolet energy emitted from STER-L-RAY germicidal lamps is at the mercury resonance line of 254 nanometers, the region of germicidal effectiveness most destructive to bacteria, mould and viruses.

 

UV Advantages

Effective

Virtually all microorganisms are susceptible to UV disinfection.

 

Economical

Hundreds of litres can be purified for each cent of operating cost.

 

Safe

No danger of overdosing, no addition of dangerous chemicals.

 

Chemical Free

No chlorine taste or corrosion problems.

 

Fast

Water is ready for use as soon as it leaves the purifier; no further contact time is required.

 

Easy

Simple installation and maintenance. Compact unit requires minimum space.

 

Automatic

Continuous or intermittent disinfection without special attention or measurement.

 

Specifications

(1) The water enters the purifier and flows into the annular space between the quartz sleeve and the chamber wall.

(2) Translucent sight port provides positive indication of germicidal lamp operation.

(3) Water leaving the purifier is instantly ready for use.

Flow rates are based on 98% UV transmission, the brochure is based on 50% UV transmission. Maximum flow rates and maintenance will vary with water quality. Larger capacity units are available on request.

 Construction

The chamber is constructed of 316 stainless steel and is electro polished and passivated for an attractive finish and dependable service.

 

Dual Heads

Constructed of 316 stainless steel, heads can be removed and rotated for versatile installation.

 

Quick Lamp Change

Exclusive Easy-Off retainer cap enables effortless lamp replacement without shut down of water pressure or drainage of tank. No tools required.

 

Fused Quartz Sleeve

Insures optimum lamp output at normal potable water temperature.

 

Applications

Applications include: point of use or installation (under sink) or whole of boat (tank outlet) on the cold water line. Suitable for boats, recreational vehicles and homes.

 

Installation and Maintenance

The purifier is normally installed as close as possible to the point of use. A 5 micron sediment and carbon filter is recommended for fitting inline prior to UV steriliser. Connection of the inlet and outlet to water supply and suitable electrical connection is all that is required. Ordinary maintenance consists of periodic cleaning of the quartz sleeve. Lamp replacement is recommended every 8500 hours of operation (approximately 12 months of continuous service).
