Firstly, the UV- disinfection as result of the irradiation with UV (254 nm) is initiated.
Secondly, the diluted ozone content is converted into hydroxil radicals, whereby the relative oxidation potential is increased from 1.52 (value Ozone) to 2.05 (value hydroxil radicals).
This process of advanced oxidation (A.O.P) is the most effective form of oxidation and is unique to the UVOX Redox®. As result of the advanced oxidation process, many resistant microorganisms, are inactivated very effectively. Furthermore, it breaks-down many noxious, and highly persistent micropollutants.
The remaining ozone content is destroyed.
