UV photoreactors, especially those used for disinfection, have emerged as important alternatives to conventional treatment operations. UV dose represents the master variable in governing the performance of these systems; however, the interpretation of the term “dose” in continuous-flow UV reactor systems has been unclear until fairly recently.

Coordinated application of all three methods (biodosimetry, numerical model, and dyed microspheres) in the analysis of UV reactor performance represents the most comprehensive approach to reactor validation. The three methods represent complementary methods of reactor characterization.
