Dissolved organics and high tannin content are the primary contributors to the reduction of UV Transmittance (UVT) in surface waters. Tannin content and low UVT render conventional UV technology ineffective. This unit is engineered specifically for these types of cases where others fail.
Upstream is engineered to reduce e-coli, bacteria, cysts like cryptosporidium and giardia, legionella and most viruses to safe levels –a minimum of 99.99% reduction. Upstream systems are effective for the broadest range of pre-treatment water quality with UVT as low as 50%.
Upstream Systems are for Potable, Reuse and Rainwater applications and are effective even on surface water from lakes, streams, cisterns and dug wells.
