Abstract

This project developed a three-dimensional laser-induced fluorescence method to quantitatively analyze the hydrodynamics of UV reactors in real-time and in 3D and experimentally measure the 3D spatial distribution of dose delivery within UV reactors. The research configured and tested two custom-built model pilot-scale reactors equipped with low-pressure UV lamps that represent current commercial technologies. Published in 2014.
