Why does the UV-C lamp have to be changed after 10,000 hours even though it still works?
Each UV-C lamp has a technical drop in the UV-C performance. The manufacturer guarantees that the system will reach 60% UV-C output after 10,000 hours. The specified data on the systems always refer to this 60% performance. However, the drop in performance continues to increase from a term of 10,000 hours. Therefore, the lamp still works, but there is no longer enough UV-C output for an optimal disinfection result.
When do I need a life of life?
A service life monitoring is recommended for all users who do not permanently let the system switch on. A change of the lamp is recommended every 10,000 hours, since the manufacturer also does not guarantee the performance, i.e. the amount of UV-C radiation dose required for safe disinfection.
How do I know which UV-C system is the right one for me?
The correct dimensioning of the systems is not based on the maximum daily consumption but the expected maximum point of time and is therefore dependent on the performance of the pump.
What should be considered when installing 12V DC and 24V DC systems?
It should be noted that no power supplies with powdered voltage are used, which means that the system can suffer irreparable damage.
Can the system be operated with photovoltaic panels?
Yes, that is possible. However, the use of a battery is always recommended to ignite the lamp. In addition, a solar controller should always be used.
