ACG Water Purification

Drinking water is conventionally extracted from ground water which is directly influenced by surface water. This creates the risk of microbiological contamination from protozoa, bacteria and viruses which result in waterborne outbreaks. Alley Capital Group provides a proven and efficient method of disinfection of drinking water through the introduction of Ultraviolet Reactors to the water reticulation system for application in domestic drinking water, food processing facilities, medical facilities as well as industrial, commercial and public facilities.

Disinfection of water using UV Reactors

UV Reactors are systems that allow potable water to flow through short-wave light from Ultraviolet lamps. Ultraviolet light possesses germicidal effectiveness which provides rapid inactivation of micro-organisms found in water through incapacitating them of reproducing and causing infection. Two unique attributes of the UV method of water disinfection are that:

  • Nothing is added to the water which eliminates the possibility of disinfection by-products hence guaranteeing odour and taste elimination.
  • UV disinfection is not affected by temperature, pH or the feculent nature of water.

Upon exposure to germicidal UV light, Bacteria, Protozoa and Viruses nuclei are photochemically damaged leading to their inability to reproduce and cause infection. The method of UV sterilization has demonstrated 99.99% efficiency in the neutralization of pathogenic organisms specifically those responsible for Cholera, Giardia, Typhoid, Hepatitis and Cryptosporidium amongst many. In addition to this, the destruction of chemical contaminants in potable water such as agricultural chemicals, pharmaceuticals and industrial solvents has also been achieved using UV-aided multi-barrier systems.

  • Pre-filtered water can be sterilized for drinking purposes
  • Stainless steel casing durable and resistant to corrosion
  • Variable reactor sizes can take flow rates up to 5000 litres per hour
  • Reactor is powered by 220 V/AC with lamp life span of up to 9000 hours (14months)
  • System contains a non-resettable hour meter for maintenance and replacement of UV lamps
  • Lamp has a germicidal wavelength of 254 nanometers that destroys 99.99% of waterborne diseases
  • UV technology offers a non-chemical approach to disinfection
