Viqua (Trojan) UVMax High Output Series Whole House Ultraviolet (UV) Water Sterilizers

The new Viqua (Trojan) UVMax high output series models G, H, and J represents the latest technology in residential / light commercial UV sterilizers. They are based on the same platform as the new flagship Pro Series models. The primary difference is the lack of an integrated flow restrictor and NSF certification (optional flow restrictors are available up to 20 GPM). This permits the new Models G, H, and J to be run at flow rates higher than the NSF-certified rates of the Pro Series where a UV dose of less than 40,000μWs/cm2 is sufficient to achieve safe sterilization. In addition to their high flow rate capacities, the new UVMax models deliver high output lamps with double the average life expectancy and better performance in warm or hot water conditions, intelligent plug-and play installation, and the most advanced real-time data collection of any UV system in its class.

Trojan UV Max ultraviolet (UV) water sterilizers are designed specifically to kill harmful microorganisms such as bacteria and viruses in untreated water supplies (well water or private water systems). Ultraviolet (UV) systems are commonly installed by homeowners who have received a positive coliform, E.coli, cryptosporidium, or giardia water test result, as well as those with reason to suspect that they are at higher risk for such contamination, and those seeking to have peace of mind that there water is being properly disinfected prior to consumption. Ultraviolet whole house water sterilizers are exploding in popularity due to their low maintenance requirements, ease of operation, economical purchase price and operating cost, and due to the fact that unlike other treatments designed for microbiological contaminants, UV does not introduce any harmful chemicals to your water. Applications include: single and multi-family homes, cottages, nursing homes, hospitals, schools, hotels, restaurants, resorts and holiday camps, and small community water systems.

Viqua (Trojan) UVMax High Capacity Models - Features

The UV lamp, which is enclosed in a quartz sleeve, produces ultraviolet light that destroys waterborne pathogens such as bacteria and viruses by penetrating the cell wall and deactivating the DNA so they are unable to reproduce. The UV lamp in the G, H and J models should be replaced every 2 years. For more information on the treatment of various contaminants by ultraviolet purification, please CLICK HERE. As with all UV sterilizers, pre-filtration (down to 5 micron level) to remove sediment and other general contaminants is required to ensure that an adequate dose of ultraviolet light reaches the microorganisms and to ensure complete disinfection.

* We recommend a minimum dose of at least 40 mJ/cm2. All flow rate recommendations are based on 95% UV transmittance (UVT) and after 9,000 hours of bulb operation. If your water has poor UVT, or if you are unsure of your UVT, select a model with a higher flow capacity than you would otherwise require.
** Inlet/outlet size restricts flow to 45 gpm and the dose will be 40mJ/cm2.

Recommended Pre-treatment

All UV sterilizers required sediment pre-filtration to reduce or eliminate the possibility that a targeted contaminant could "hide" behind a sediment particle in the "shadow" of the UV light and therefore not receive a full dose of UV light. Accordingly, the manufacturer strongly recommends sediment pre-filtration down to a level of 5 microns or smaller. Water exceeding 120 ppm in hardness (7 grains per gallon) should be softened to reduce the risk that hard water mineral scale will build-up on the UV sleeve thereby reducing UV light distribution into the UV chamber. Similarly, iron levels exceeding 0.3 ppm should also be treated to prevent staining of the UV sleeve. Elevated levels of certain other contaminants, such as organics, can cause a reduction in UV transmittance (the ability of the water to transmit UV light). If the UV transmittance (UVT) of your water is less than 75% after the above-mentioned pre-treatment, activated carbon filtration may be desirable to improve UV transmittance. The majority of deep wells have a UVT of 85% or greater. If your UVT is unknown, select a model with a higher flow rate capacity then you feel you will really require (this will provide a higher UV dose at your desired flow rate), or add an activated carbon pre-filter to your system.

Recommended Accessories

Solenoid Emergency Shut-off Valve Kit - in the event of a power failure or electrical outage to your home, your UV lamp in your UV system will lose power. This could leave your home unprotected if someone turns on a water faucet. Some bacteria and other waterborne pathogens can also swim past an un-powered UV lamp and reach the downstream portion of your water system and therefore not receive a dose of UV light once the power is restored. The same situation could occur in the event of a UV bulb failure (rare, but possible). The solenoid emergency shut-off valve kit is installed at the output of your Trojan UV system and will physically close a valve in the event of a bulb burn-out, or power failure, thereby preventing any contaminant from passing through the system untreated. This feature will also turn off the water supply if there is a UV intensity loss (for models equipped with a UV intensity monitor). This kit is highly recommend for all homes with a known bacterial, virus, or cyst contamination problem, and for all homes with an electrical supply that is prone to frequent outages.

COMMCenter - The optional COMMCenter provides real-time dosage display so you can monitor the performance of your UV system. In addition to UV dose, the system displays alarm history, lamp hours, and other performance parameters. Moreover, the COMMCenter can be installed just about anywhere - simply connect the COMMCenter to the sterilizer using a standard computer cable. The COMMCenter can also be connected directly to your computer where you can use Trojan's MAXtrack software to obtain real-time dose data, track alarm and dose history, etc. for any given period of time. This data logging capability allows operators to demonstrate proper system operation to regulators and consumers, provides troubleshooting insights, and allows for proactive maintenance. These features make the COMMCenter an excellent choice for commercial applications where dosage reporting and logging is desirable to prove compliance with health regulations. It also accept standard mini-SD memory cards (same type used more many digital cameras) so you can download data and transfer to a computer so you can view and analyze the data in any standard spread sheet program. A single COMMCenter can monitor up to 9 UV systems simultaneously. The MAXtrack software can be downloaded from the manufacturer's website at no charge.

Flow Restrictors - A flow restrictor can be installed immediately prior to your UV sterilizer to ensure that you cannot exceed what would be considered the safe maximum flow rate for your respective model. A flow restrictor is recommended for all homes with a known bacterial, virus, or cyst (giardia or cryptosporidium) contamination problem. We offer a wide range of restrictors with capacities ranging up to 20 gallons per minute in both stainless steel and chrome-plated brass.

Installation

Installation is straightforward for any licensed plumber or a homeowner with some plumbing experience. Plumbing connections are standard threaded connections. It is recommended that standard manual shut-off valves be installed before and after the UV sterilizer. Optional flow restrictors and emergency solenoid shut-off valves are available for many models. The electrical supply is obtained from a standard 110-120v electrical outlet (some models can be operated at 240v). See notes above regarding recommended pre-treatment. Detailed installation instructions are provided with your system.
