I'm wondering how long before the power effiecency of the UVC LEDS and dollar cost averaging will surpass the High or low pressure mercury floresant tubes
And Karl_H is correct just passing the UV robot around the room is no where near to the intensity level that the Star Trek beryllium scan on the Enterprise where it kills any and all living organisms with its laser like curtain as it passes over the surfaces.
I am hoping to construct a UV cylindrical reactor using LEDs for my water storage system which will be capable of flow rates in the several gallons per minute range while allowing a continuous recirculation between a pair of 300 gallon containers as part of a pre treatment process before the water is sent to a 1000 gallon reservoir
What I'm looking of would be on the order of 1 1/2" NPT what ever diameter around 8 to 12" long 18 to 20 watts and 12 volt 2 to 5 GPM. Since the exposure range of the LEDS are in the 3.5 to 4 mm distances it wouldn't bother me to construct a cylinder with spiral vanes inside so the water flowing through would take on a cyclonic swirling movement as it flowed through the cylinder with the LEDS positioned around the perimeter of the spiral. this way the reactor could be incorporated in the recirculation system without the need for a separate UV dedicated recirculation system
