Viopure Validated SSV Series

Viopure Validated Drinking Water UV System

A validated drinking water treatment solution, featuring the world’s most advanced and efficient UV disinfection technology. Tested according to the ÖNORM M 5873-1 standard, which equals or exceeds the requirements of comparable international validation criteria for UV water treatment systems, including EN 14897 – for further information please see our comparison document

The SSV series features patent-pending SWIRLFLOW™ technology, optimising the UV exposure that the water flow receives, while maintaining as much as 90% hydraulic efficiency in all water qualities. This technology also increases the effectiveness of the SSV system for low UV transmission (UVT) applications; maintaining effectiveness in conditions with as little as 70% UVT.

Electropolished stainless steel AISI 316L internal chamber walls enable up to 30% additional energy savings at higher UVT due to their reflective properties.­­

The system also has an automatic dose pacing feature, allowing the lamp output to be as low as 50% power consumption – while still efficiently achieving desired fluence (dosage) levels.

Automated wipers regularly clean the quartz sleeves and the UV sensor to maintain a consistent level of disinfection and monitoring

The touch-screen interface features full data logging and offers complete operator control of the UV system, either on-site or from a remote location. The controls can also be integrated with SCADA layouts and modified where required by our technical partner software engineers to meet your custom requirements.

ÖNORM M 5873-1:2001
Sensor measurement uncertainty is subtracted in % the from flow rateRed cross circular symbolgreen matches performance circular symbolÖNORM factors 15-17% tolerance for sensor inaccuracies, EN 14897 does not factor for this
Sensor measurement required for both disinfection and bacterial testingRed cross circular symbolgreen matches performance circular symbolEN testing only requires a sensor for disinfection testing and has no requirement for bacterial treatment testing. ÖNORM requires a sensor to analyse both disinfection and bacterial treatment, additionally ÖNORM has higher technical requirements for the sensor
Wide angle sensor measurement requiredRed cross circular symbolgreen matches performance circular symbolUsing ÖNORM compliant, wider (160°) measuring angle sensors allows preparation of both EN and ÖNORM test standards. EN does not specify a minimum measuring angle
Normalization of the flow to 40 mJ/cm²Red cross circular symbolgreen matches performance circular symbolTo meet exactly 40 mJ/cm² is not possible during testing – ÖNORM allows extrapolation of the flow rate
Flow is only released if all lamps are functional and prescribed minimum irradiance is reachedgreen matches performance circular symbolgreen matches performance circular symbolÖNORM also requires display of warning for wiper malfunction (if present), falling below the irradiance warning threshold and falling below the minimum irradiance. Control panel must also display the lamp operating time and on/off cycles
Testing proceduregreen matches performance circular symbolgreen matches performance circular symbolEach flow rate is correlated to a specific UVT. Testing is conducted with highest flowrate and highest UVT, lowest flow rate and lowest UVT and a minimum of one flowrate / UVT in the central region of the operating range
Minimum test runsgreen matches performance circular symbolGreen exceeds tick circular symbolEach test point (flow/UVT) is carried out in two different worst-case scenarios. All tests are then repeated (double determination). ÖNORM limits the factor between the lowest and highest test points (between 3 and 5 times depending on required maximum flow rate), so in general ÖNORM applies more rigorous test conditions
Construction and material requirementsgreen matches performance circular symbolGreen exceeds tick circular symbolÖNORM requirements meet or exceed all criteria of EN 14897 – Section 4.2
Minimum reduction equivalent fluence (REF)green matches performance circular symbolGreen exceeds tick circular symbolEqual requirement: 40 mJ/cm² minimum. ÖNORM allows for normalisation between 40 mJ/cm² and 60 mJ/cm² and factors UV sensor tolerances for calculating the flow table
Operationgreen matches performance circular symbolGreen exceeds tick circular symbolÖNORM stipulates more stringent ongoing maintenance of UV systems. This includes the requirement for annual reference measurements and recalibration of the UV sensor. The vendor is responsible for training of the staff for operating and maintaining the UV system and the operator is required to keep a detailed operating log

ÖNORM M 5873-1

The Viopure Validated drinking water UV system series has been validated by the internationally recognized Austrian standard – ÖNORM M 5873-1. This allows the drinking water series to offer ultimate security for drinking water disinfection. For comparison to the British EN14897 standard please see our useful factsheet.
