UV Sterilizer Water Flow Rates

Water Flow Rate Information

Two Decades of providing RELIABLE UV Treatment.

Competing UV Sterilizer Manufacturers and their dealers cannot justify their flow rates. Why? Because they grossly overrate their UV equipment! Overrated UV's will not deliver the required UV dose and will result in a
disappointed customer.

The Emperor Aquatics, Inc. SMART UV difference is INTEGRITY. Compare our lower SMART UV flow rates to any competitor's flow rates. Call them, question their numbers and request a copy of the calculations that support their claims. You'll most likely find that they offer little technical assistance.

Below is a UV Flow-Rate Comparison between our 25 Watt SMART UV and the competing UV brands. This comparison uses the established "Waterborne Algae" UV Dose Rate (22,000 µWs/cm²) as a benchmark. The comparison graph shows the actual UV dose achieved based on the manufacturers' recommended
flow rates
.


UV Comparison Chart

    NOTE:
  • The UV Flow Rate establishes the achieved UV Dose. For successful UV Treatment of
    Waterborne Algae, the required UV Dose is 22,000 µWs/cm².
  • All calculations are based upon actual equipment specifications using the Bolton Photosciences, Inc.
    "UV CALC" program, which is recognized by the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency).

*Suggested flow rates are based on "end of lamp's useful life" performance (80% power)
*Maximum flow rates are based on new lamp output (100% power)
*Flow rates consider 90% UV transmissibility
