Legionella Bacteria Removal By UV

Product Description
Ultraviolet Disinfection System

The most effective treatment of legionella bacteria is by the utilization of purification methods that target water distribution systems, such as ultraviolet (UV) disinfection. Ultraviolet sterilizers are extremely potent in penetrating bacteria within water with the use of UV rays that work in destroying the structure of cellular DNA synthesis. Ultraviolet disinfection systems can be installed at specific locations along the water distribution system, or simply positioned ahead of incoming infected water.

How Do You Test For Legionella In Water?

In order to test for bacteria, it must be examined throughout a number of different sites on a case by case basis. There might be a need for more than one sample due to the various kinds of mechanical and plumbing systems. Ultimately, the Legionella bacteria is prone to exist and become transmittable in virtually any water source throughout the world.

How Long Can Legionella Survive?

Legionella is capable of surviving in natural environments with cold, mild, and hot temperatures for several months. When in the presence of organic substances and algae, the bacteria has a tendency to multiply and grow as parasites throughout water distribution systems. Commercial buildings, hotels, and hospitals that utilize warm, moisture-laden conditioning systems increase Legionella’s chances of survival.


Legionnaires Disease Causes and Spread

Legionnaires' disease is a severe type of pneumonia that is caused by a somewhat rare bacteria called Legionella, which is uncommonly found in natural environments throughout the world. The Legionella bacteria normally lives in water, and while people who live in environments where Legionella exists don’t become sick from exposure, the bacteria has a high tendency to spread when conditions are conducive to its growth. For instance, legionella is prone to proliferate in water distribution systems, where many different types of the bacteria can exist and become exposed to humans.

Legionella is caught by people through inhalation of aerosol, which is a suspension of liquid in the form of gas, that has already been polluted with the bacteria prior to human exposure. Due to the fact that aerosol can be produced from any sort of open water body such as spas, faucets, baths, or showers, there are a variety of easy ways in which humans can unwittingly inhale the bacteria in residential, commercial, or industrial settings.

The symptoms of legionella consist of feelings of chilliness, coughing, and high temperature that can become lethal if left untreated in a timely fashion. As a result of inefficient diagnostics and reporting at the hands of clinicians, it has become imperative to implement the correct antibiotics in order to avert legionella from growing and inflicting terminal effects in the lungs, which will ultimately leave life-long defects.

Some of the most important advantages of UV systems are the uncreation of chemical by-products, and zero alterations of taste and odor within the water. The ultraviolet sterilization system also provides great affordability with ease-of-use, low maintenance (to prevent scaling on UV lamps), versatility, safety, automatic disinfection without special attention, and unmatched effectiveness in killing nearly all microorganisms.
