Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9901381A1] The invention relates to a device (50) for sterilizing a medium, preferably water. The device has a conduit of pipes (51) through which the medium that is to be purified is passed. At least one removable UV lamp producing ultraviolet radiation is fitted almost concentrically in the conduit. Said conduit (51) is U-shaped and has two separate adjacent pipe sections (54). A sleeve (53) is connected to the inlet and outlet sides of each these pipe sections respectively. One of the sleeves (53) forms a channel from one pipe section (54) and the other, while the other sleeve (52) forms an inlet and outlet for the medium. This latter sleeve has two flange sections (62), each receiving an UV lamp (55) that extends into a separate pipe section (54). This results in a sterilizing device which is inexpensive to produce and easy to remove for cleaning.
