Ultralife Ultra-V VHO UV Sterilizer 16 watt Information



The`Ultra-V` is now available and has well been worth the wait. These units features include: water tight gasketted housing, hard quartz sleeve, inline bulb replacement, high efficiency remote electronic ballast. And what we feel is the BEST feature of all: The SIZE-- under 22" long. Great for Ponds, Fresh and Marine applications.

The "Ultra-V" Ultra Violet Sterilizers are excellent choices for Freshwater, Saltwater and Pond applications. These units are water tight and utilize hard quartz sleeves for peak performance. The design also allows for UV Bulb replacement without the need to remove the unit from it`s installed position.

Allowing for a maximum flow rates up to 1500 GPH, these units are designed to be used with your favorite water pumps.

Based on a 70,000 æW sec/cm2 (microwatt seconds per square centimeter) the flowrates are as follows:
  • 16 Watt UV Unit 430 gph
  • 40 Watt UV Unit 1000 gph
  • 60 Watt UV Unit 1500 gph
By changing the flow rate through the UV unit you will change the effective "kill power" of the UV unit.

For example: If you only allow 215 gph thru the 16 watt unit, you will effectively increase the kill power to 140,000 æW sec/cm2 (microwatt seconds per square centimeter). And also the opposite, by increasing the flow rate you will lower the "kill power".

We have included a chart to help you calculate your flow rate depending on the "kill power" needed for the corresponding Micro-Organisms.
  • Waterborne Algae 15,000 to 30,000 æW sec/cm2
  • Common Bacteria 15,000 to 30,000 æW sec/cm2
  • Protozoa (Ich) 45,000 æW sec/cm2
  • Fungi 45,000 æW sec/cm2
The "Ultra-V" is made in the USA and has a 1 year warranty on the Unit and Ballast, and 90 days on the UV Bulb and Quartz Sleeve.

FANTASTIC Product Review by Apistogramma hobbyist (Posted on 3/27/12)

Excellent!

Comments: Just awesome. Great size, the install is a breeze, and it cleared my water up in less than 24 hours. This is a product that really does work as advertised and I am a true believer in UV sterilization now. Only thing I should add is teflon tape is needed on the threads to make it leak-proof. You do get what you pay for with this unit.

Made well! Product Review by shafman1 (Posted on 12/14/10)

Excellent!

Comments: I bought the Ultralife Ultra-V UV Sterilizer to replace a Coralife UV that leaked more than once. I bought the Ultra-V based on the reviews and the contact time with the water. It is made well and is about 22 inches long. Some of the other brands were 40 inches or more, and I don't have that much room under my tank. The bulb is high quality. I had to go to the local hardware store to buy some fittings since the two that were supplied were too big for my hose connections. The ballast has two lights on it when it's plugged in. One LED for power, and one LED for the bulb. It is easy to see that the sterilizer is working because the body glows when it's on. This sterilizer was a little more in price than some of the cheaper ones, but not as expensive as some other. My only concern was whether or not replacement bulbs were available, but I found they are available after searching the internet.

Comments: Product is great -- the GPH rating is really nice. I've started using the product in the last month or two -- but it's really helped out. The bulb is in a water-tight chamber -- where you can actually change the bulb without having to drain all of the water, etc. This is a "must-have" feature for UV Sterilizers.

Amazing Product Review by Happy Tanks (Posted on 12/6/07)

Excellent!

Comments: This UV sterilizer was easy to install. I ordered another pump to increase the flow rate but didn't need it because when I came back to look at the pond two weeks later (850 gals which had been green for years) it was crystal clear. The owner was so happy to be able to view her fish. Everybody is very happy.
