UV Disinfection Overview

UV disinfection is an effective method to remove coliform and microorganisms by providing
a specific wavelength of light. That 254 nanameter (nm) light wavelength is invisible to the
naked eye, but penetrates the cell wall to disrupt microbe DNA. Disturbed DNA does not
allow the microbe to reproduce.

WEDECO provided the low-pressure, high outlamp lamp technology which is the most
efficient system with the advantages of self-cleaning sleeves. The leader in the industry
a summary of the features and benefits are listed below.
