PRODUCT APPLICATION
CONSTRUCTION
•
•
•
The water purifier is designed to mount vertically.
The water purifier chamber is passivated and electropolished Stainless Steel Type 304.
The water purifier has a flow control valve inserted in inlet fitting of the chamber.
PRINCIPLE
OF
OPERATION
TM
The Ultimate design has been carefully conceived to provide adequate germicidal dosage throughout the disinfection chamber. The dosage, as it applies to ultraviolet disinfection, is a function of time and the intensity of
ultraviolet radiation to which the water is exposed. The exposure time, in seconds, is the total time it takes the water to
flow through the disinfection chamber exposing it to the germicidal lamp. Exposure time is related to the flow rate; the
higher the flow rate, the lower the exposure time or the lower the flow rate, the higher the exposure time. The
ultraviolet intensity is the amount of energy, per unit time, emitted by the germicidal lamp. The Dosage is the product
of ultraviolet intensity and the exposure time. The operation of the UltimateTM is as follows:
1. Water enters the purifier and flows into the annular space between the quartz sleeve and the chamber wall.
2. Suspended microorganisms are exposed to the ultraviolet rays emitted by the germicidal lamp.
3. The LED indicator light, located on the ballast, provides visual indication of germicidal lamp operation.
4. Water leaving the purifier is instantly ready for use, no further contact time is required.
LIMITATION
OF
USE
The water purifier is intended for the use with visually clear water, not colored, cloudy or turbid.
See “Water Quality” section below.
The water purifier is NOT intended for the treatment of water that has an obvious contamination or intentional source,
such as raw sewage; nor is the unit intended to convert wastewater to microbiologically safe drinking water.
WATER QUALITY
Water quality plays a major role in the transmission of germicidal ultraviolet rays. It is recommended that the water
does not exceed the following maximum concentration levels:
Table 1 - Maximum Concentration Levels
Turbidity:
Manganese:
Total Suspended Solids:
pH:
Color:
Hardness:
Iron:
5 NTU
0.05mg/l
10 mg/l
6.5 - 9.5
None
6 GPG or 102.6 PPM
0.3 mg/l
Effectively treating water with higher concentration levels than listed above can be accomplished, but may require
added measures to improve water quality to treatable levels. If, for any reason, it is believed the ultraviolet transmission
is not satisfactory, contact the factory.

INSTALLATION
UNIT PLACEMENT
1. The water purifier is intended for indoor use only. The water purifier should be protected from the elements and
from temperatures below freezing. The ambient temperature, in the area surrounding the water purifier, should be
between 33º F and 100º F.
2. The water purifier must be connected to the cold water line only. Inlet water temperature should not exceed 100º F.
3. Electrical power supplied to the water purifier MUST match power requirements listed on the water purifier. Use
of a voltage surge protector is recommended.
4. The water purifier should be located in a dry, well-lit area, which provides enough room to perform routine
maintenance. The UltimateTM is designed to mount in a vertical position, with the gland end up. Unit must be
mounted to a secure wall or structure using the brackets provided. It is not recommended to have the unit solely
supported by the plumbing to the unit. (The quartz sleeve and lamp are removed from the gland end.) Allow a
service area of at least one chamber length from the gland end, for replacement of the lamp or cleaning/replacing
quartz sleeve, as well as a minimum of 6" on the opposite end of the water purifier. Refer to “Dimensional Data”
Figure 1 and Table 2 on Page 6.
5. Choose a location for your UltimateTM unit that is isolated from vibration. Vibration will damage lamp and lead to
premature system failure.
6. The water purifier should be located closest to the point of use. This reduces the chance of the purified
water being re-contaminated by bacteria in the water distribution system after purification.
7. If your system is subject to water hammer conditions, it is recommended that you install a water hammer
suppressor. Water hammer may cause damage to the o-ring seal.
8. CAUTION: As with any water handling device, the purifier should be located in an area where any possible
condensation or leakage from the purifier, accessories and/or plumbing will not result in damage to the purifier or
to the area surrounding the purifier. For added protection, it is recommended that a suitable drain pan be installed
under the purifier. The drain pan must be plumbed to an adequate, free flowing drain to prevent water damage in
the event of a leak. There are numerous leak detection/flood stop devices, available on the market today, designed
to stop the flow of water, reducing the chance of water damage due to leakage. For more details regarding leak
prevention and/or limiting damages due to leaks, please contact the factory.
9. Flow direction - water enters the unit through the lower fitting and exists through the upper fitting. The flow
control is mounted in the lower (inlet) fitting.
10. It is recommended that a 5 micron sediment filter be installed, in line, prior to the water purifier. The sediment
filter will stop or trap any particulates from entering the water purifier. Particulates may cause damage to the
quartz sleeve as well as interfere with the purifier's ability to disinfect the water. The sediment filter may also help
to reduce the amount of routine cleaning of the quartz sleeve.
11. Shut off valves and unions should be installed on both the inlet and outlet sides of the water purifier. The use of
bypass valves is not recommended. The shut off valves allow the purifier to be isolated from the water supply,
which is required when removing the quartz sleeve.

NOTE: Screws are needed to secure water purifier to mounting surface and ARE NOT included. Please use screws appropriate
for the mounting surface.
•
•
•
•
Unpack the water disinfection chamber and components following the steps in the “Unpacking” section on Page 5.
Be sure that you have read and followed all the instructions mentioned in the “Unit Placement” section on Page 5.
For location recommendation to allow for adequate room for installation and maintenance of the UltimateTM
Ultraviolet Water Purifier refer to “Dimensional Data” Figure 1 and Table 2 on Page 6.
Use the “Dimensional Data” Figure 1 on Page 6, to mark the location of the bracket mounting pattern on the
surface where the unit will be mounted. (Refer to Dimensions "D", "E", & "F".)
Installation Steps 1 to 10
1. Install the bottom bracket to the mounting surface (with screws not included). The lip of the bracket should face down.
2. Place top bracket over the static gland nipple where the lip of the bracket faces up (refer to “Dimensional Data”
Figure 1 on Page 6 ). Install bracket nut onto the static gland nipple so that it holds the bracket against the top of the
chamber - hand tighten only. Place the chamber & top bracket assembly onto the bottom bracket. (Upward facing fingers
on the lower bracket straddle the bottom rim of the chamber.) Align the top bracket so that it faces the mounting surface
and is in line with the bottom bracket. Secure the top bracket to the mounting surface (with screws not included).
3. Slowly slide the quartz sleeve into the disinfection chamber, guiding it through the gland fitting until it seats into bottom
center of water purifier. NOTE: Use care to keep the quartz sleeve parallel to the chamber. Angling the quartz sleeve in
any direction could result in the breakage of the quartz sleeve.
4. Place the o-ring over the end of the quartz sleeve and push the o-ring down the quartz sleeve until it is seated against the
static gland nipple.
5. Place the Teflon® washer over the quartz sleeve until it rests on the o-ring.
6. Install the static gland nut over the quartz sleeve and onto the static gland nipple. Be careful when installing static gland
nut. Firmly tighten the static gland nut by hand. Hand tightening will provide the required seal. DO NOT USE HAND
TOOLS, tightening with hand tools is likely to cause quartz sleeve to break.
7. Insert the lamp part of the way into the disinfection chamber, then attach the lamp socket connector to the lamp; make
sure the connector is fully seated on the ultraviolet lamp. Carefully slide the lamp into the quartz sleeve.
8. Lower, DO NOT DROP, the ultraviolet lamp into the quartz sleeve so that the lamp is resting at the bottom of the quartz
sleeve.
9. Thread the translucent sight port plug (connected to the lamp socket connector) into the static gland nut and hand tighten.
10. • Install Grounding Kit following the instructions in the “Grounding Kit Installation” on page 10.
• Plumb unit following the recommended installation in “Unit Installation” Figure 2 on page 7.
• When all plumbing connections are complete, allow water to enter the water purifier at a low flow rate, until the
purifier is pressurized. With the purifier pressurized, it should be checked for leaks. If the unit leaks, make sure that
the static gland nut is firmly tightened. DO NOT use seal compounds to stop the leak. If the leak continues, close the
inlet shut-off valve; release the pressure on the unit and drain. Inspect the quartz sleeve for damage. Be sure that the
o-ring and Teflon® washer are on in the correct order on the quartz sleeve (not inside the static gland nut).
Re-pressurize unit and check for leaks. Once it is determined that there are no leaks, the inlet valve can be full opened.
• Once the plumbing hook ups are made, it is good practice to disinfect the “downstream” plumbing. This is done by
introducing chlorine or other disinfectant solution directly into the purifier chamber, a 100 parts per million of chlorine
is suggested. With the disinfectant solution in the purifier chamber, turn the ultraviolet purifier on. Open the "downstream" outlet until a chlorine odor is noticed. Close the outlet and allow the disinfectant to remain in the plumbing for
at least three (3) hours. Flush the plumbing with ultraviolet purified water; allow the water purifier to run for several
minutes before use, this will allow the ultraviolet lamp to reach its full germicidal output.
• Plug the ballast into an approved Ground Fault Circuit Interrupt (GFCI) receptacle. Where a 2- prong or unprotected
3- prong receptacle is encountered, it must be replaced by a properly grounded Ground Fault Circuit Interrupt (GFCI)
receptacle. Installation must be in accordance with the National Electrical Code and any local codes and ordinances by
a qualified electrician.
! WARNING: Avoid exposure to direct or strongly reflected germicidal ultraviolet rays. Germicidal
ultraviolet rays are harmful to the eyes and skin.

as well as a hole on the brass colored “S” clip.
2. Pull strap as tight as possible to insure contact between the strap and the pipe.
3. Insert the bolt threw both copper holes and into the threaded hole on the brass colored “S” clip.
4. Remove 5/8" of the ground wire insulation and insert into the bolt hole as shown and install the screw.
5. Ensure that the strap is securely fastened to the pipe and that the copper wire is in contact with the screw and bolt.
MAINTENANCE
The water purifier is designed to operate with a minimal amount of maintenance, providing the water quality does not
exceed maximum concentration levels, see the “Water Quality” section on page 4.
Ordinary maintenance consists of;
• Lamp replacement is recommended every 10,000 hours of operation, approximately 12 months of continuous service.
• Cleaning of the quartz sleeve, when conditions warrant.
• Always disconnect the water supply and completely drain the water purifier if it will be subjected to
temperatures below freezing, for extended periods of time.
INSPECTION
