The MINIPURE 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.
