Investigation of Chemical Actinometer Microspheres for UV Dose-Distribution and Local Intensity Measurement - 3139
Completion Year Research Value Research Manager Principal Investigator Contractor
2009 $100,000.00 Dr. Kenan Ozekin O. Karl Scheible HydroQual, Inc.
Evaluates and demonstrates the use of chemical actinometer-dyed microspheres to directly measure the dose-distribution within a UV reactor, as an alternate approach to modeling and biodosimetric techniques. Also uses chemical actinometry as an alternate to conventional sensors to measure local intensity. Research partner: NYSERDA. Completed in 2007. Published as "Validation of large-scale, monochromatic UV disinfection systems for drinking water using dyed microspheres," in Water Research, 42(3), February 2007.
