Sterilization of Water by Ultra-Violet Rays of the Mercury-Vapor Quartz Lamp
Transactions of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers
OF PAPER Mercury-vapor quartz lamps are applied industrially for the production of ultra-violet rays for the sterilization of water. To obtain ultra-violet rays economically it is important to study the temperature of the luminous part of the lamp. There are different ways for measuring the ultra-violet power, based on physical, chemical or bacteriological reactions. Such reactions are compared between them. The paper refers to the historical development of mercury lamp water sterilizers anddoi:10.1109/t-aiee.1914.4765179 fatcat:ie6drsoe5jacxedemcgy6wuarq
