Viqua UVMax / Sterilight UV Temperature Management Solutions
During extended periods without water flow, the water temperature in a UV sterilizer's chamber can heat up significantly. When water flow is resumed, the initial flow of water can be very warm. For systems with UV intensity monitors, the sensor reading can be affected by the elevated temperature resulting in a nuisance alarm. Temperature sensitive valves or cooling fans are often used to eliminate these problems. We offer several solutions and replacement parts for various UVMax and Sterilight cooling systems.
Temperature management valves are fully automatic and are installed on the outlet port of the UV chamber. They discharge a small amount of water when the system reaches a pre-set temperature. This valve is perfect for applications with extended no-flow conditions, as it allows the lamp to operate within its optimal operating parameters. They are strongly recommended for UV models with high output UV lamps and UV intensity monitors including: UVMax D4+, E4+ and F4+; and Sterilight Cobalt Plus, Platinum, and Platinum Validated models.
Cooling fans are included with certain UVMax and Sterilight UV models. They draw heat away from the UV chamber and are a very effective cooling system for UV systems with ultra-high output amalgam UV lamps.
