Water is used in all aspects of life and is a valuable commodity that should be used economically and preserved for the future.
Optical technologies are a key contribution for water treatment. In particular, UV amalgam lamps from Heraeus Amba Australia effectively disinfect in modern water works at a rate of more than 90,000 litres of water per second.
The ultraviolet radiation produced by the UV amalgam lamps destroys bacteria, viruses, parasites and fungi without needing chemicals.
Amalgam lamps are long life, high power, low pressure lamps that can be used at ambient temperatures of up to 90°C and are not sensitive to temperature fluctuations.
These UV lamps have a unique coating that means they will not suffer unwanted transmission loss of quartz glass, resulting in a virtually constant disinfection action over the operational life of the lamp.
