Water enters a 316L electropolished stainless steel vessel through a flanged connections. Systems are configured with different types and numbers of lamps depending on the flow rate and the desired results. A stainless steel modified NEMA 4x Ballast Control Center provides power, controls and alarming. Chambers are connected to this center to receive Power, Data and Air.
The water passes by the lamps where it is exposed to lethal doses of UV light. The chamber integrates an automatic quartz cleaning system, which is pneumatically driven. A UV monitoring sensor is installed in the module and reads the relative output of a group of UV lamps. This sensor is also cleaned during the automatic cleaning process.
Glasco has been installing chambered wastewater UV disinfection systems since the 1980s.
Systems are designed based on flow rate. Chambers are designed to treat up to 5 MGD per vessel.
Systems have been biologically validated at the Johnstown UV testing center by HydroQual.
