The UV-5000 is a robust, high quality ultra-violet sterilizer that offers very efficient treatment at a low cost per unit volume. Typically installed at the point of entry, it can treat municipal water as well as ground water from drilled or dug wells, or surface water from lakes, ponds or rivers (pre-filtration necessary). This sterilizer is perfectly sized to provide drinking water or purified process water for commercial and light industrial applications, including food and beverage processing, pharmaceutical manufacturing, or colling towers. It is also very popular for the disinfection of pools and spa's.
The UV-5000 sterilizer will purify the water from most common contaminants. Bacterial, viral and other pathogens are inactivated by a high intensity UV dose that kills harmful microorganisms such as E. coli and Giardia at a 99.99% kill rate.
