What is Ultra-Violet (UV) disinfection?
UV radiation at 254nm from our lamps disrupt DNA in micro-organisms killing them outright or harming them so they cannot reproduce.
UV effectiveness is determined by UV dose. The higher the dose the better the disinfection. Some micro-organisms are more susceptible to UV than others, however as a general rule a UV dose of 40 mJ/cm² (400 J/m²) is sufficient for comprehensive disinfection of most human pathogens in drinking water
In general terms
UV DOSE = UV INTENSITY x TIME
This is similar to chlorine effectiveness being directly proportional to concentration x time.
Basket Strainers - made in the USA. Wide range of flow rates
Corrosion resistant basket strainers, certified to ISO9001:2008 Standards
Our standard line aquatic strainers are widely used in water attractions nationally and internationally. On the industrial side our strainers can be used in chemical resistant and other applications.

Custom Strainers – Our standard line of PVC/CVPC, fiberglass and stainless steel strainers can be modified for your application. We can also supply built to spec strainers for non-standard use.
Avanale Water Solutions supply automated & flow paced chlorine dosing systems and testing equipment - available in powder or liquid.
As a halogen, chlorine is a highly efficient disinfectant, and is added to public water supplies to kill disease-causing pathogens, such as bacteria, viruses and protozoans, that commonly grow in water supply reservoirs, on the walls of water mains and in storage tanks. The microscopic agents of many diseases such as cholera, typhoid fever, and dysentery killed countless people annually before disinfection methods were employed routinely.
As a strong oxidizing agent, chlorine kills via the oxidation of organic molecules. Chlorine and its hydrolysis product hypochlorous acid are neutrally charged and therefore easily penetrate the negatively charged surface of pathogens. It is able to disintegrate the lipids that compose the cell wall and react with intracellular enzymes and proteins, making them nonfunctional. Microorganisms then either die or are no longer able to multiply
