Choosing Ultraviolet Energy For Wastewater Disinfection

2020-04-28T18:12:28-04:00

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 [...]
