Our Proprietary Technology Offers Custom Colors and Images

flourescent-light-manufacturers

In a number of industries such as signage, jewelry showcases and other types of displays, it is important to use the optimal fluorescent lighting in products. The goal for many OEMs is to find fluorescent lamps that can “reproduce” a color in relation to a natural or ideal light source. As part of the LightSources group, LCD Lighting is one of the leading manufacturers of standard and custom-designed specialty fluorescent lamps that are used in virtually any type of OEM lighting applications.

The Color Rendering Index (CRI) is used to determine the color of fluorescent lamps. It measures how well it renders colors and the quality of light produced by the light source. Based on a numerical scale of 0 to 100 percent, the higher the CRI such as an 80 – 95 percent is considered good to excellent, and at the top of the scale, the CRI of 100 percent is natural daylight provided by the sun. The phosphor used to manufacture the lamps determines the color temperature. The most common industry lamp phosphors produce the following color temperatures: Warm White – 2800° K to 3200° K; Cool White – 4000° K to 4500° K; and Day Light – 6200° K to 6800° K.

At LCD Lighting, our proprietary color rendering index (CRI) produces more rare earth tri-phosphors to give our fluorescent lamps the truest color with a natural look. This provides the opportunity for OEMs and other end-users to get custom colors and images for unique products and application requirements. With our extensive inventory of fluorescent lights, clients have a choice of more than 100 various shades of white or phosphor blends. Furthermore, if we do not already manufacture what you need, we will develop a new blend just for your application. Please see our website for further information regarding our fluorescent and other specialty lamp products.

LightSources, together with our affiliated companies, represent the foremost high-tech designers and manufacturers in the lamp industry today. LCD Lighting, our leading affiliate in fluorescent lamps has designed and manufactured thousands of custom fluorescent lamps for nearly every type of OEM lighting application.

Purifying Drinking Water Safely and Effectively

lighting-technologyAs nearly every source of drinking water in the U.S. contains some level of contamination due to toxic bacteria, chemicals and heavy metals, the public needs effective ways to purify water. A method that is becoming increasingly more popular with municipalities is UV treatment systems. They are one of the safest and most economical means of purifying drinking water and adhere to government regulations.

Unlike water chlorination disinfection, the UV approach does not require specialized operators to run the plant or a constant supply of potentially hazardous material. Other advantages to UV technology are it does not leave any byproducts or change the color, taste, odor or pH of the water. It has also proven to be more effective than chlorine treatment against parasites such as giarrdia and cryptosporidium. These bacteria can cause severe diarrhea and even death especially in the elderly and very young children.

As a leading designer and manufacturer of proprietary UV germicidal bulbs, LightSources, along with our strategic partner, LightTech, offer safe, simple, and cost-effective solutions for a multitude of industries that require water, air and surface sterilization. Our low pressure standard quartz germicidal lamps and low pressure high output germicidal lamps are used throughout the world to disinfect, sanitize and oxidize drinking water, as well as to reduce TOCs and chloride/chloramines.

LightSources UV lamps can generate UV radiation at 185nm and 254 nm. This combination is designed for the photooxidation of organic compounds. Radiation at 185nm produces ozone, which is active oxygen, and is one of the most effective natural bactericides killing almost every form of virus. Radiation at 254nm is a highly effective sanitizer, and at this wavelength, UVC is absorbed by the organism’s DNA, which eliminates its ability to reproduce. We encourage you to visit our website as it contains much more information about our UV products as well as all of our other specialty lamps.

LightSources and our affiliated companies represent the leading high-tech designers and manufacturers in the lamp industry today. Our products are used world-wide in a multitude of applications and industries such as our UV germicidal lamps that offer patent-protected, OEM-oriented solutions. Please contact us to learn more about our extensive selection of lamps.
