Is UV cost effective?

By Admin on Fri 10 February 2017 in Water Filtration FAQ's

UV is becoming favored for use in industry, not only due to its effectiveness but also its efficiency.

The best alternative for UV is boiling of water. In principle this seems a relatively simple process and therefore should be an economical method too right? Wrong! Boiling large quantities of water for disinfection is hugely labour intensive and costs a significant amount in energy and therefore money. Once a UV is installed, it requires very little intervention. Overall, in regards to energy consumption and personnel time, UV is approximately 20,000 times more economically efficient than boiling.
