With atg UV systems treating in excess of 2500 m3/hr daily, Ultraviolet disinfection is no longer an ‘emerging` technology. A number of Water Treatment Works across the world are now investing heavily in Ultraviolet technology as the threat of chlorine resistant parasites, such as Cryptosporidium and Giardia, continue to pose a serious risk to water companies and their customers. To this end, in the UK, the DWI have issued their guidelines for UV operation and system selection to the UK water industry. A key feature of their guidance is UV system validation. Validation refers to a series of 3rd party testing to ensure the performance of an Ultraviolet system design under a range of operating environments.

Chlorination remains the most widespread way of disinfecting water in the world. Its flaws are: high toxicity of chlorine and other chlorinating reagents, also formation of various chlorine-containing compounds, including chlorite-, chlorate, and perchlorate anions. Maximum permitted levels (MPL) of these components are established in WHO Guidelines for drinking water and other regional and national regulations.
