How Does UV work?

UV water disinfection is a natural process which does not add any chemicals into your water, nor alter the water chemistry. Ultraviolet light energy inactivates harmful microorganisms such as bacteria and viruses by disrupting the DNA, effectively preventing them from multiplying and causing illness. The pathogens are destroyed in the time water passes through the disinfection chamber. E-Coli, Cryptosporidium, and Giardia lamblia (Beaver Fever) are examples of waterborne microorganisms that cause numerous gastrointestinal illnesses which are easily controlled with UV disinfection.

Why is Greenway UV effective?
Greenway UV systems are designed with compact, high grade stainless steel chambers which house our efficient, colour coded UV lamps. Separate electronic controllers (ballasts), power the UV lamps and effectively control the system diagnostics.
The single ended lamp design promotes user-friendly, easy lamp changes and simple periodic quartz sleeve cleaning.
The Greenway VuCap is unique to Greenway Water Technologies. Now our customers can clearly see when the UV lamp is on.
