C3500™D Ultraviolet Disinfection System DatasheetSource: Calgon Carbon Corporation
The C3500™D open channel series is an advanced, cost effective solution for the ultraviolet (UV) disinfection of wastewater using high powered (500W), low-pressure lamps. The C3500™D was specifically designed for water reuse and low effluent quality applications, such as combined and sanitary sewer overflows (CSO & SSO). The system also offers advantages for conventional secondary and tertiary wastewater applications.
Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) was utilized to optimize the germicidal efficiency of the reactor by varying the size, shape and quantity of the Delta mixing devices as well as the lamp spacing. The patent-pending design increases the hydraulic efficiency of the reactor by uniformly exposing the water to the required UV dose while minimizing head loss. Validation testing per National Water Research Institute guidelines has confirmed the increased germicidal efficiency of the system. It uses fewer lamps than other low-pressure high-output UV systems, which means a smaller footprint, decreased installation and O&M costs.
Calgon Carbon designed the C3500™D open channel, parallel flow UV disinfection series to meet the demands of the treatment plant operators with simple operation and maintenance.
The UV system includes: lamp racks, power distribution centers, system control center, automatic level control device, automatic cleaning system, and all interconnecting cables. It is designed for simple installation and trouble-free operation throughout the life of the system. The C3500™D is designed to operate at ambient air temperatures ranging from 14° – 104°F (-10° – 40°C) with 5-95% relative humidity (non-condensing). System options are available for conditions outside of this range.
