Ultraviolet Irradiation


Recent studies have shown that a wide variety of such contaminants exist at trace concentrations in all water supplies and in the air. Ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) is a method of disinfection that uses short-wavelength ultraviolet (UV-C) light to kill or inactivate microorganisms by destroying nucleic acids and disrupting their [...]

Choosing Ultraviolet Energy For Wastewater Disinfection


Ultraviolet or UV energy is found in the electromagnetic spectrum between visible light and x-rays and can best be described as invisible radiation. In order to kill microorganisms, the UV rays must actually strike the cell. UV, or ultraviolet light, disinfects waste water by damaging the DNA and RNA of [...]

Using Machine Vision For Other Optical Exams


The reason most people visit their optician or ophthalmologist is to have their eyesight tested. However, more than just a routine eye exam can be evaluated when the doctor examines the eyes. A simple ophthalmic exam can reveal signs of systemic diseases such as diabetes and hypertension, and in the [...]
