An Adaptable Water Disinfection System to Meet Your NeedsYour hospital has a large and complex water system. You know that one misstep in your water disinfection process can have a disastrous outcome. You want a system that can operate automatically and with minimal attention. An ultraviolet water purification system can virtually eliminate possible water-borne infections. The MEGATRON® Water Disinfection System is packed full of standard features that make it the smart choice for safe, effective, and economical water purification. Modular design makes it the solution for a single department such as the maternity and delivery wards, pathology labs, dialysis labs, operating rooms, intensive care units, laundry facilities, or your entire hospital.
How does the MEGATRON® provide the high purity water my hospital needs?Virtually all microorganisms are susceptible to ultraviolet disinfection. STER-L-RAY ® Germicidal Lamps are shortwave, low pressure tubes that produce ultraviolet wavelengths lethal to microorganisms. Ultraviolet radiation strikes microorganisms in the disinfection chamber, killing the exposed pathogens by dissociating their DNA structure. There are no chemicals involved, and no danger of overdosing or handling mishaps. More importantly, there is no risk of chemical reactions with procedures such as dialysis or equipment sanitization. Successful purification depends on having the proper dose of UV light needed for the particular organisms to be deactivated. The MEGATRON® uses STER-L-RAY ® Germicidal Ultraviolet Lamps. Available in 4 models, each uses between 4 and 19 germicidal UV lamps. Multiple units can interconnect to comply with nearly any flow rate. Depending on your needs, you can set up the MEGATRON® to disinfect water in one department or your entire hospital.
EconomicalUV purification is economical, disinfecting hundreds of gallons for each penny of operation cost. The STER-L-RAY ® lamps are designed specifically for use with UV purification systems. They are instant start, which means they require little energy to operate and produce the lethal kill rate desired without generating an abundance of heat. 10,000 hours of continuous use maximizes lamp longevity.
Continuous DisinfectionThe MEGATRON® provides automatic and continuous disinfection without special attention. Standard features such as the built in digital monitor allow you to always know the status of your system’s UV output. Routine quartz sleeve cleanings and system maintenance can occur without full system shut-down, keeping purified water continuously supplied. For easy troubleshooting and repair, the electrical enclosure and disinfection chamber operate—and are accessible—separately from each other.
Made in the USA of type 316 stainless steel, the UV water treatment systems from Atlantic Ultraviolet Corporation® are constructed of the highest quality materials and use germicidal ultraviolet lamps to purify water.For more information on the MEGATRON® Ultraviolet Water Purifier visit our MEGATRON® overview page or download the MEGATRON® brochure here.
