UVA Lamps

BL (Black Light) Long wave, 315-400nm

UVA lamps are commonly used in Bug Zappers and Bug Trappers to attract flies and flying insects including moths, flies and mosquitoes. They are attracted by BL energy and are then trapped or zapped into the machine.

Other applications for BL include:

– hardening curable artificial nail coatings – lamps are housed in a glove type compartment in which the hand is placed.

– curing of various polymers, glues and paints.

– medically for phototherapy, photochemotherapy and to treat skin disorders in dermatology.

Available in straight fluoro, U-shaped, H-shaped, circular, and self-ballasted. Straight lamps are available in shatterproof condition as well.

BLB (Black Light Blue) Long wave (filtered), 315-400nm

These UVA lamps are immediately identified by their dark blue/purple colour when not turned on. They are made of Woods Glass which filters visible light (400nm+) and only allows the UVA wavelength to pass through.

Uses include:

– Fluorescence of minerals including potch

– Non destructive testing (NDT)

– Invisible signature marking systems

– Fluorescent inks

– Philately & numismatics

– Transilluminators

– Gas leak detection in refrigeration and Air conditioning

– Photo Chemical Reactors (PCR)

– Rodent urine detection by pest companies

– Forensic applications

– Veterinary Surgeons for Ringworm detection and skin problems

Available in Shatterproof condition.

UVB Lamps

Erythemal,  Mid wave, 280-315nm

UVB lamps simulate the energy from the sun in the mid UV range. They are available in a straight fluoro type, and in four sizes; 8, 15, 20, & 40 watt.

They are used for:

– Curing of various polymers, glues and paints

– Accelerated outdoor ageing of materials including plastic, PVC and polymers.

– Medical applications for skin disorders

– Transilluminators for DNA type procedures.

 

CAUTION: 

UVB lamps can cause damage to eyes and skin if exposure occurs. Protective faceware and protective clothing must be worn.

UVC Lamps

Germidical,  Short Wave, 200-280nm

UVC lamps are used for the destruction of micro-organisms in air, surface and liquid applications. It is becoming the first choice for industries requiring this protection as UVC is safe, simple, cost effective and instant. It is environmentally friendly being chemical free with no corrosive action

Protects drinking water from harmful micro-organism contamination and kills chlorine resistant Giardia and cryptosporidium.

Air Treatment

Germicidal UV purifies the air from micro-organisms that cause sickness and infection and that which can aggravate asthma and respiratory problems.

Used in:

– HVAC systems

– Hospital, clinics and healthcare facilities

– Pharmaceutical laboratories

– Medical and research applications

– Commercial coolrooms

– Food manufacturing and handling

– Commercial kitchen hoods.

Surface Treatment

Germicidal UV disinfects surfaces with no need for chemicals.  Used in the food industry for instantly killing bacteria, viruses, moulds and yeasts. Using UVC lamps helps reduce the risk of contamination and prevents food product recalls.

Also used in:

– Filling equipment

– Food storage and display

– Medical and research applications

– Storage cabinets and cupboards

–  Pharmaceutical Operations

– Food conveyors.

Water Treatment

Using germicidal UVC lamps for treatment of water eliminates the need for chlorine, and other chemicals with their harmful and irritating side effects. UV water treatment is safe, cannot be overdosed, and is environmentally friendly. They also feature no flavour or taste change, and provide virtually instant purification.

Used extensively in the food processing and manufacturing areas, industrial and commercial process water as well as waste water, municipal and domestic drinking water. UV treats water sourced from mains supply, rainwater tanks, dams, bores RO plants and saltwater.

Hundreds of uses also include:

– Aquaculture

– Cooling towers

– Any application where micro-organism spoilage will cause a problem and the water must be chemical free.

Fluorescing

UVC irradiation is also used in the search for precious minerals. Dozens of different types of rocks fluoresce under short wave UV displaying a wide range of colours. Lamps are used with a special glass filter which filters visible light and allows only UVC to pass.

 

Ozone Lamps

Ozone,  Short Wave, 185 nm  VUV 10-200nm

UVC lamps can be made of quartz material specifically designed to produce ozone (O³) at the wavelength of 185nm. In appearance, these lamps look no different to a standard non-ozone lamp. Double check the part number to ensure the correctness. The ozone output from the lamp is measured in grams per hour.

CAUTION:

UVC lamps will cause damage to eyes and skin if exposure occurs. Protective faceware and protective clothing must be worn.

 

Shatterproof UVA & Fluoro Lamps

We are able to offer UVA and UVC lamps in a SHATTERPROOF format. The lamps have a heat shrunk sheath fitted around the lamp which permits the UV rays to pass.

If the lamp is subject to force and it breaks, the glass and the contents are contained in the sheath, preventing them from falling into the product and causing spoilage, product delay and extensive cleanup.

UVA lamps are then compliant with HACCP and QA regulations.

This conditioning can also be applied to standard fluorescent lamps. It is available for lamp sizes T5, 8, 9, and 10.

UVC lamps are available in most sizes of straight lamps to 48mm diameter. Check for availability.

Quartz Glassware

UVP offers a range of UV Quartz sleeves and thimbles in a variety of lengths and diameters. They can be used with many of our UVC lamps including low pressure, high output and amalgam lamps.

Sleeves are open both ends (OBE)  and are used with lamps with pins at both ends. Thimbles are closed or domed on one end (COE) and are used with lamps with the pins at one end eg. 4 pin lamps. 

Quartz glassware provides protection against air and water flow, water leakage, and temperature changes as well as physical protection for the lamp. Using this glassware will not reduce the UVC dosage of the lamp. 

Sleeves and thimbles are used in all water purifiers and should be cleaned or replaced regularly to ensure there is not a build up on the surface of the glass which will restrict the passageway of the UV rays.

Electronic Ballasts

 

All germicidal UVC lamps must be operated from a specifically designed ballast. A fluorescent lamp ballast used in general lighting (electronic type or with a starter) is NOT suitable and the UVC lamp will not operate to maximum output nor efficiency. In fact, operating the UVC lamps from these ballasts can cause damage to the lamp. 

We have a complete range of electronic ballasts for all types of UVC lamps from 420ma to 6.0+ amps covering all wattages. 

These ballasts are available as components for new systems or as replacements in existing UV products. Ballasts interchange with all brands of the same amp rating. 

Available for: 

– standard low pressure lamps

– high output low pressure lamps

– high output amalgam lamps 

– cold cathode lamps.
