Microwave-powered Ultraviolet Disinfection System

March 5, 2013

MicroDynamics-UVThe MicroDynamics® Series OCS721 from Severn Trent Services is a new microwave-powered, open channel, ultraviolet system for municipal wastewater disinfection and water reuse applications. The innovative new product offers greater operating cost savings; lower whole-life cost; and long lamp life in a smaller footprint. Modules can be placed side by side in channels for design flexibility and to reduce civil works requirements. In addition, the system is National Water Research Institute validated for water reuse. The MicroDynamics OCS721 system meets dose, log reduction and water quality requirements for a variety of applications. The technology uses microwaves to energize low-pressure, high-output, electrodeless lamps to generate a UVC output of 254 nm, an optimal wave length for bacterial disinfection. The lamps also include a three-year warranty.
