Title: Actinometric monitor for measuring irradiance in ultraviolet light reactors

Abstract: A tubular holder for an actinometric monitoring element for monitoring the irradiance of ultraviolet light within a liquid to be treated for microorganism control. The holder extends into the interior of a vessel or a pipeline that carries a fluid to be treated by exposure to ultraviolet light. A transparent end cap is carried at the end of the holder that is within the vessel or pipeline. Positioned within the holder is an actinometric monitoring element that can be either a transparent container for an actinometric solution or a photocell, each for sensing the irradiance of ultraviolet light emitted by light sources positioned within the vessel or pipeline. The holder is removably received in a sleeve that extends through the wall of the vessel or pipeline.
