Ultralife DUAL UV Sterilizer & Ozone Generator Now Available
You have heard of UV Sterilizers, right?
How about Ozone Generators?
Of course. Well, Ultralife has taken these to the next step, by combining both into one unit. The Ultrazone-DUAL.
Ozone is by far the best way to boost your water quality. The Ultrazone-DUAL cleans up aquarium water by removing unwanted organic decay, proteins and pollutants. By eliminating harmful organics, ozone increases the longevity of all marine life. These units manufacture ozone by passing oxygen molecules over a specially designed light source. The active oxygen is used to create superior water quality, providing aquarium inhabitants with a clean environment for living and reproducing.
The Ultrazone-DUAL is designed in such a way that the same light source used to produce ozone, is encased and a special quartz glass sleeve to generate UV light. As water flows past this quartz sleeve it receives the many benefits of UV sterilization.
The Ultrazone-DUAL units work equally well with with venturi reactors or venturi protein skimmers. Allowing for a maximum flow rates up to 1000 GPH, these units are designed to be used with your favorite water pumps.
The features include: water tight gasketted housing, hard quartz sleeve, inline bulb replacement, high efficiency remote electronic ballast as well as a compact design. Made in the USA and has a 1 year warranty on the Unit and Ballast, and 30 days on the Bulb and Quartz Sleeve.
The Ultrazone-DUAL is an excellent choice for Freshwater, Saltwater and Pond applications.
Based on a 70,000 æW sec/cm2 (microwatt seconds per square centimeter) the flow rates are as follows:
40 Watt UV Unit 1000 gph
By changing the flow rate through the unit you will change the effective "kill power" of the UV unit.
For example: If you only allow 500 gph thru the unit, you will effectively increase the kill 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 "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 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 Ultrazone-DUAL is designed for safety, performance and low maintenance. These generators do not require air dryer as is the case with other ozone generators and can be used with aquariums up to 600 gallons and have bulb life of approximately 9000 hours.
NOTE: The Standard model allows for continuous UV & Ozone production or when used with an ORP controller, both the UV and Ozone Production turn on & off as the controller calls for ozone.
