The Wyckomar UV-1 Ultra Violet Water Sterilizer 5.8 gpm 12VDC is a robust, efficient and cost-effective ultra-violet sterilizer designed for the disinfection of drinking water in the average household at a flow range between 2.4 and 5.8 GPM (9 – 22 LPM). Typically installed at the point of use (e.g. under the sink), it can treat municipal water as well as ground water from drilled or dug wells, and surface water from lakes, ponds or rivers. Other applications for this sterilizer are for the purification of process water in laboratories and dental offices, or the prevention of biofouling in RO Systems.
This sterilizer contains a low-pressure, high output UV lamp in a 304L stainless steel reaction chamber (also available in 316L). It comes with an electronic ballast that features a lamp-out alarm if there is no power to the lamp.
Combined with a Wyckomar filter set, this sterilizer is the center piece of a complete water treatment system for the elimination of bacteria and viruses and reduction of taste and odor at the point of use.
Additional features for this sterilizer can be ordered, such as a thermo-sensitive purge valve at the out port to prevent overheating in no-flow conditions, or volt-free contacts on the ballast for remote signaling. A 12 V DC version for use on boats or RVs is also available. The UV-1 kills most harmful pathogens such as viruses, bacteria and protozoa with a powerful UV disinfection dose that will inactivate the pathogens at a kill rate of 99.99% (log 4) or more (Giardia, E. coli, Cryptosporidium, Vibrio cholerae, Legio nella, Salmonella, Shigella, Streptococcus and many others)

This UV sterilizer assumes certain water quality parameters to be met for proper operation. If the source water does not meet the following criteria, pretreatment has to be considered
Turbidity (Suspended Solids): Must be < 1 NTU at the time of disinfection. There must be a 5 micron or less sediment pre-filtration system installed before the UV system.
Total Hardness (Sum of Calcium and Magnesium): Must be < 10 gpg (grains per gallon) Iron: Must be < 0.3 ppm (parts per million).
Manganese: Must be < 0.05 ppm
This UV unit is available as complete system with appropriate pre-filtration (Part # SYS1/QD4E-2)
