Disinfection of water with Watts SmartStream™ UV 6 GPM, A Series UV system is a simple, rapid physical process. When contaminated water is exposed to the Watts SmartStream's™ 254 nanometer UV light, the UV light penetrates the cell walls of microorganisms and disrupts their genetic deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) material. This quickly inactivates microorganisms by destroying their ability to replicate and infect. This UV system has the ability to inactivate bacteria, cysts, protozoa, parasites, and viruses. Even mold and algae are inactivated by the powerful effects of UV.
This SmartStream™ UV disinfection system is designed to be used as a point of entry disinfection device.
This system is an improved version of the Watts UV (WUV) line. Replacement lamps, quartz sleeves, sleeve o-ring, and controllers are all interchangeable between the WUV and the A Series. The new upgrades include a two-piece quartz sleeve nut with grounding screw, a lamp power wire strain relief in the quartz sleeve nut, and a reconfigured inlet and outlet port arrangement.
The Watts SmartStream™ A Series UV Controllers are designed with simplicity in mind. During normal operation, the LED indicator will be illuminated green. If the lamp burns out then an audible alarm will sound and the Green LED Indicator will change from Green to Red. This informs the user that the system requires servicing.
The flow rate of the system must be properly sized. DO NOT exceed the rated flow rate capacity of the system. Flow controllers are available from Watts to ensure the system's rated flow is not exceeded.
