Type: Submersible UV-C lamp
Submersible UV-C lamp
Is a simple device that can be used to effectively eliminate the growth and development of unicellular algae, funnel algae, yeasts and partially bacteria and viruses in your rearing system.
It works on the principle of emitting UV-C radiation with a wavelength of 253.7 nm into the water, thereby disrupting the DNA of microorganisms. The microorganisms do not multiply further. An important feature of UV-C radiation is that it does not cause resistance in microorganisms.
The effectiveness of the UV-C lamp depends mainly on the intensity of the radiation and the illumination time. In the case of water disinfection, the transparency of the water also matters. Cloudy water causes a lower efficiency of the UV-C lamp.
How to size the UV-C lamp ?
In RAS , i.e. in recirculating fish farming, a conversion of 5 -10 W /m3 is used, depending on the intensity of the farming and the flow rate.
In aquaculture, where often only the inflow water is treated (inflow to the hatchery, troughs, etc.), it is better to assess each case individually based on the specifics of the particular farm. If you are interested, please do not hesitate to contact us.
