Disinfection Systems 59 surface of the lamp’s glass envelope. This process changes the transmittance of quartz because of photo-thermal damage (USEPA, 2006). Manufacturers often provide guidelines for replacing the lamps; most of these guidelines are based on the number of hours of use. 3, the percent reduction in output from MP lamps is much higher than that of LP lamps for same amount of time. However, remember that the output from MP lamps is much higher than that of LP lamps. The output from MP lamps seems to decrease with time in all wavelength ranges.

A pot can be filled with polluted water and, with sufficient solar radiation and time, the CooKit can pasteurize the water in approximately the same amount of time as the box cooker. A large variety of panel cookers have been developed and produced in recent years. Design variations include the number and shape of the panels, overall size, type of container, materials used in construction, and method of folding/unfolding. A third class of solar cooker, called a “concentrator,” concentrates the solar radiation much more than a box or panel cooker.

11 SODIS AND TITANIUM DIOXIDE The efficiency of SODIS can be improved through use of titanium dioxide (TiO2). TiO2 has been found effective in water purification because TiO2 works as an advanced oxidizer that operates in conjunction with the sun’s UV-A rays. A PET water bottle is suggested as a container. A TiO2 film can be created by acidifying TiO2 with HClO4; then the inside of the bottle can be coated with the TiO2 solution or the solution can be applied to glass rings that are then suspended in the bottle.
