Designing for UV Dose Accuracy Through Reactor Validation (Fact Sheet)

Source: Trojan Technologies

The UV dose delivered by a reactor is the key parameter used to confirm proper UV system sizing for a specific application. Theoretical estimates of equipment performance (e.g. using UVDIS 3.1 software) are prone to overstating the delivered UV dose because real-world factors are not considered. Reactor validation, through a bioassay, rigorously tests an actual UV system under a wide range of water quality conditions to characterize the system performance and enable accurate sizing and performance guarantees.
