The Sterilight SSM-14 is well suited to point-of-use water treatment and post-RO disinfection up to 2.0 gallons per minute (7.5 LPM) to kill bacteria (including coliform and e.coli), viruses, cryptosporidium, giardia, and a wide range of other microbioogical contaminants. It is the most economical unit that we offer that features a UV intensity monitor and a powered solenoid output. It is an excellent choice for applications with a known bacteria or other microbiliogical contamination problem.

Like all Sterilight Silver Plus Series UV water purifiers, the SSM-14 features a stainless steel reactor chamber, a fire-polished domed quartz sleeve, and Sterilight Sterilume™-EX coated low pressure germicidal UV lamp which can be conveniently changed without interrupting the water flow. The UV lamp provides a 4-log (99.99%) reduction of bacteria, viruses, and protozoan cysts (cryptosporidium and giardia) at the specified maximum flow rates. Lamp life is 9,000 hours (1 year). The SSM-14 uses Sterilight's electronic "ICE" controller features a switchable power supply that automatically detects line voltage between 100-240 volt and adjusts its operating settings accordingly. It also features a convenient display which indicates % UV output, remaining lamp life, and total days of operation. Coupled with a true 254nm UV intensity monitor housed in a stainless steel enclosure, the controller continuously monitors the UV output and warns you of any changes in water quality or if the water becomes unsafe to drink. The SSM-14 also comes with a powered solenoid output that allows you to connect an emergency solenoid valve shut-off kit (sold separately) directly into the controller. See below for more information.

*Note: Maximum recommended flow rates based on 95% UV transmittance. Actual dosage depends on flow rate, water quality, and maintenance (cleaning ov UV sleeve). UV dosage will be lower when the UV transmittance capacity of the water drops below 95% - if in doubt, select a model rated for a higher flow rate than you actually require. We recommend a UV dose of no less than 30 mJ/cm2.
