Description

NEW FEATURE!!! All of the ‘Ultra-V’ Ultraviolet Sterilizers are available with Standard as well as Waterproof Ballasts. Both feature Intelligent Electronic Design.

The ‘Ultra-V’ Ultraviolet Sterilizers are now available and has well been worth the wait. These units features include watertight gasketed housing, hard quartz sleeve, inline lamp replacement, high efficiency remote electronic ballast. And what we feel is the BEST feature of all: The SIZE— under 22″ long. Great for Ponds, Fresh and Marine applications.

The “Ultra-V” Ultraviolet Sterilizers are excellent choices for Freshwater, Saltwater and Pond applications. These units are watertight and utilize hard quartz sleeves for peak performance. The design also allows for UV lamp replacement without the need to remove the unit from it’s installed position. 

Allowing for maximum flow rates up to 1500 GPH, these units are designed to be used with your favorite water pumps. 

Based on a 70,000 æW sec/cm2 (microwatt seconds per square centimeter) the flow rates are as follows: 

10 Watt UV Unit: Flow up to 430gph

20 Watt UV Unit: Flow up to 430 gph 

40 Watt UV Unit: Flow up to 1000 gph 

60 Watt UV Unit: Flow up to 1500 gph

By changing the flow rate through the UV unit, you will change the active “Power” of the UV unit. 

For example: If you only allow 215 gph thru the 20-watt unit, you will effectively increase the power to 140,000 æW sec/cm2 (microwatt seconds per square centimeter). And also the opposite, by increasing the flow rate you will lower the “Power.” 

We have included a chart to help you calculate your flow rate depending on the “Power” needed for the corresponding Micro-Organisms. 

Waterborne Algae 15,000 to 30,000 æW sec/cm2
Common Bacteria 15,000 to 30,000 æW sec/cm2
Protozoa (Ich) 45,000 æW sec/cm2
Fungi 45,000 æW sec/cm2

The “Ultra-V” is made in the USA and has a 1-year warranty on the Unit and Ballast, and 30 days on the UV Lamp and Quartz Sleeve.

Operating Principle:
The “Ultra-V” Ultra Violet Sterilizers are excellent choices for Freshwater, Saltwater and Pond applications. These units are watertight and utilize hard quartz sleeves for peak performance. The design also allows for UV Bulb replacement without the need to remove the unit from it’s installed position.
Allowing for maximum flow rates up to 1000 GPH, these units are designed to be used with your favorite water pumps.
Based on a 70,000 μW sec/cm2 (microwatt seconds per square centimeter) the flow rates are as follows:

10/ 20 Watt UV Unit 430 gph
40 /60 Watt UV Unit 1000 gph

By changing the flow rate through the UV unit you will change the active “kill power” of the UV unit.

For example: If you only allow 215 gph thru the 20 watt unit, you will effectively increase the kill power to 140,000 μW sec/cm2 (microwatt seconds per square centimeter). And also the opposite, by increasing the flow rate you will lower the “kill power”. We have included a chart to help you calculate your flow rate depending on the “kill power” needed for the corresponding Micro-Organisms.

Waterborne Algae 15,000 to 30,000 μW sec/cm2
Common Bacteria 15,000 to 30,000 μW sec/cm2
Protozoa (Ich) 45,000 μW sec/cm2
Fungi 45,000 μW sec/cm2

The “Ultra-V” is made in the USA and has a 1 year warranty on the Unit and Ballast, and 30 days on the UV Bulb and Quartz Sleeve.

Basic Installation:
1. Open UV Unit by unscrewing endcap. (End with cord coming out of it)
