Designing water disinfection systems with UVC LEDs can be a challenge because the type and quantity of UVC LEDs needed will vary based on the unique intricacies of each system. We created the UVC LED Requirements Calculator (below) to help answer an essential question for design teams: How many UVC LEDs are needed for your point-of-use water purification system to provide disinfection at its specified end-of-life?
Note: this calculator assumes configurations appropriate for low-flow systems. If you are designing for higher flow rates (greater than 4 liters per minute) please contact us and one of our field application engineers would be happy to help.
Calculate Your UVC LED Requirements
Designing water disinfection reactors with UVC LEDs can often be challenging for design teams because LED requirements vary with system elements. Complete the fields in this calculator to achieve a sense of the disinfection time, total UVC power and number of LEDs required for your point-of-use water disinfection system.
Note that this calculator assumes configurations most appropriate for low flow systems. If you are designing for higher flow rates (greater than 4 liters per minute) please contact us and one of our field application engineers would be happy to help.
Please enter the performance requirements, water quality and material characteristics of your POU water disinfection system or appliance.
Enter Flow Rate (Liters Per Minute) - Values Should be 0.2 to 4.0
Select treatment performance goal (UVC dosage)
Select Water Source (UVT)
Select Chamber Material (Reflectivity)
Select Appliance or Product Lifetime (Years)
Please make sure all entries have valid values.
Please make sure Flow Rate is between 0.2 and 4.0.
