How to compare performance and costs of several UV systems?
The following chart provides a simple method to sort through a variety of proposals and choose only the UV systems that can provide the required bio-security. Then you can proceed and easily compare the costs of only the relevant UV systems.
For the purpose of an economic analysis, you may want to consider the following questions:
- What is the cost of the equipment?
- Are there any additional costs associated with the installation of the equipment, such as piping or civil work?
- What is the annual cost of lamps and quartz-sleeve replacements?
- What is the annual electricity expenditure?
- What are the expected annual maintenance costs in terms of labor and spare-parts?
- Does the UV provider have local technical support?
