The desire to lead a largely self-sufficient life centers on the question of drinking water supply. In order to be able to enjoy water from wells, lakes, rivers or cisterns, it must first be appropriately treated. Drinking water treatment is a complex field in which a suitable treatment chain must be put together depending on the condition of the source water. Bacteria, germs and viruses pose the greatest threat to health. The PURION 500 represents the perfect combination of a power-saving device and a very good disinfection system that leaves no chance for pathogens. Due to the small length of 32cm, this unit can be easily integrated into the smallest water circuits. In terms of dimensioning, the PURION 500 is ideal for use in small vacation homes and larger mobile homes. For self-sufficient living without worrying about drinking water quality, the PURION 500 is the safest solution.
With the help of the 12V connection, this unit can be integrated into various power circuits. Examples are accumulators and photovoltaic panels or the electric circuit of a motorhome. Especially with photovoltaic panels a battery is indispensable, because the UV-C lamp must be supplied with a constant 12V voltage.
This UV-C disinfection system from PURION meets all technical requirements of the drinking water ordinance. The used stainless steel 1.4571 is also used in the food industry and therefore meets the standard. In compliance with the prescribed maximum flow rate, the required UV-C dose of 400 J/m² is achieved with a UV-C transmission of 90% T1 cm. This UV-C system thus achieves a disinfection rate of 99.99%, which is required by law. For trademark protection reasons, this system does not have a DVGW certificate, so in individual cases it must be clarified with the health authority whether the UV-C disinfection system can be used.
