UV Spider, the solution to bacterial charge you were waiting for
What’s UV Spider
The device with LED technology UV SPIDER, designed and manufactured by GWS, is made in Italy and designed for the sector of water treatment at the point of use and to be installed in new or existing water dispensers.
The SPIDER system combines the innovative LED light technology with the germicidal power of UV-C. The bacteriostatic effect is due to the absorption capacity of the radiation in the range of 200-300 nm of bacterial DNA, that’s why the UV light emitted by “SPIDER” LEDs is so effective with its wavelenght of 275nm.
The UV Spider is a barrier for 99.99% of pathogenic microorganisms that can often contaminate water and filtration devices, such as Giardia, Cryptosporidium and Pseudomonas.
Providing a water dispenser with a UV SPIDER means keeping away the risk of bacterial contamination from the system and having more guarantees in the delivery of water microbiologically complying with the law parameters.
How works the UV Spider
The UV SPIDER system can supply, with direct current, 1, 3 or 5 UV sources, which can be easy installed in few minutes.
LED devices are housed in special TEFLON connectors, a plastic material suitable for contact with drinking water and permeable to UV radiation. The connectors, designed to hold up to two UV sources, can have different geometries and be compatible with any JG hydraulic fitting, this allows quick insertion at several points of any existing system.
The extended action of UVC light emitted by LEDs performs a very effective microbial action, protects the system from bacterial retro-contamination phenomena and contributes to the delivery of water complying with the law parameters.
