designed and installed the handrails in the area, while the AIC installed two units of the system, with each system composed of four rainwater-harvesting drums, a series of filters and a UV lamp powered by the solar panels.
Figure 2 compares the output of a 395 nm LED light source with a typical traditional UV lamp. It is important to note the difference in intensity and wavelength of the output; both are key to understanding a UV curing process.
According to Bob Blandford, president, the development of Miltec UV's new HPI Gloss Control UV Curing System was based on understanding the principles behind UV lamp systems coating and process and as well as a lot of R&D in lab.
"I'm not sure the consumer is ready to make the investment needed to make these products viable," she says, noting that a UV lamp costing from $50 to several hundred dollars is required to use the gels.
In the example of the destruction of atrazine using UV with hydrogen peroxide, a UV lamp perpendicular to the flow of water containing hydrogen peroxide and atrazine reduces the concentration of hydrogen peroxide in the water as hydroxyl radicals are formed.
