The effectiveness of the germicidal UV is determined by the time the body is exposed to the light. Other things like the wavelength and the intensity also play an essential part in getting the results. Another thing that can affect the effectiveness is if there are some particles the hinder the microorganisms from the UV light. For you to obtain a near to correct results you have to circulate the water or the air several times through the UV light so that many microorganisms are exposed to the UV as much as possible. Many times sterilization is quoted as being achievable. In reality it is not easy to say that you have reached sterilization results in any process and that is why you will realize many uses the word disinfection so that they do not appear to be lying about their results. Other companies will use the term 99% efficient. A cell can use UV light to repair damaged DNA. The process is referred to as light and dark repair. The side of the exposure to the UV light is the one that will determine how efficient the process is for the right results. With soil surrounding the bulb the effectiveness will be significantly affected. The bulbs will, therefore, have to be cleaned to make sure that the results do not interfere with so much.
To ensure that the effectiveness is maintained, the bulbs will also have to be changed from time to time. The design of the germicidal bulbs determine how long they will live. They also rely on the various materials that are used. When there is airflow it cools the lamp making the output of the UV to go down. If you are to get more accurate results, you need to ensure the lamps are shielded from the direct airflow. Reflection is one of the ways that can be used to enhance the efficiency of the UV. One of the most efficient materials when it comes to reflection is aluminum. If you want to evaluate the efficiency of the UV in water disinfection, you can calculate the dose.
When carrying out these operations care must be exercised because of the process is not done in the right way it will give you entirely different results. When you use the wrong results, it means that the decisions that are made will have different effects because they are based on incorrect results. That will mean that the products made after the finds should not be trusted depending on how much are the results affected by the interference of the process. That is why some processes have to have regulatory bodies to make sure everything is done in the right way.
