UV sterilization is the use of the appropriate wavelength of ultraviolet radiation can destroy microbial cells in the DNA (DNA) or RNA (RNA) molecular structure, causing growth and / or regeneration cell death so as to achieve sterilization effect. UV sterilization technology is based on modern epidemic prevention, medicine and photodynamics, using a specially designed high efficiency, high intensity and long-life UVC UV irradiation water , to directly kill the water of various bacteria, viruses, parasites, algae and other pathogens.

Principle of operation:

The way a UV sterilizer works is through a special fluorescent bulb which emits light at a wavelength of 253.7 nanometers. As aquarium water is filtered through the UV chamber, it is exposed to the light and irradiated.

Unlike chemical approaches to water disinfection, UV provides rapid, effective inactivation of microorganisms through a physical process. When bacteria, viruses and protozoa are exposed to the germicidal wavelengths of UV light, they are rendered incapable of reproducing and infecting.

UV sterilization is a disinfection method that uses short-wavelength ultraviolet (UV-C) light to kill or inactivate microorganisms by destroying nucleic acids and disrupting their DNA, leaving them unable to perform vital cellular functions.
