In part two of our UV system series, we talked about the importance of determining the UV system's maintenance interval and its light transmission capabilities. It's crucial that your supplier informs you of these two factors to make sure you're making the right investment.


Here, in part three, we'll go into the final three factors to consider when choosing your UV system to reduce bacteria in your metalworking fluids.


Determine if your metalworking fluids will be affected by UV light


In some cases, metalworking fluids may be affected by UV light. The light could impact important functions or affect its color.


To keep from investing in a UV system that may negatively impact your oil solutions, be sure to talk to your UV system supplier to make sure your metalworking fluid's properties won't change. It may also be helpful to talk to your metalworking fluid supplier on this end, too.


Know how easy the system will be to maintain


In part one of our UV system series, we talked about the importance of being able to access your system's glass sleeve. In part two, we went into detail about how your system's glass sleeve could impact the maintenance interval of your system.


It's essential to also consider how easy the maintenance process itself is. Ease of maintenance varies from supplier to supplier, so you need to make sure the UV system is designed for effective and efficient maintenance. You ought to be able to remove the glass sleeve quickly and wipe the scale off.


Make sure your system is high-quality


The reason you're looking into UV-purification of metalworking fluids in the first place is to boost productivity and improve your work environment. That said, you need to make sure the UV system you're investing in won't cause any problems.


To get a good idea about the quality of your UV system, take a look at the lamps and sleeves. Instead of looking at these parts for maintenance purposes, determine whether the lamps and sleeves were developed for industrial use. You need to be able to handle these parts without breaking them.


Now that you know what to look for in a UV system, you can confidently search for the right system to start purifying your metalworking fluids safely and efficiently.
