OEMs Benefit from our Patented Bases and Matching Sockets

post 73

With the help of our affiliate company Cerlux, LightSources and LightTech have all of the necessary resources to provide OEMs the opportunity to create their own proprietary products and private brands. As a specialty manufacturer of custom ceramic components, our relationship with Cerlux gives us the ability to not only customize lamps for clients but to also offer proprietary and custom ceramic bases and socket components.

Our high-quality ceramic bases are the preferred choice for germicidal and ozone producing lamps due to their resistance to heat, moisture and the intense UV and/or ozone produced as well as their attractive appearance. To best serve customers, our patented multi-step bases and matching sockets offer the following benefits:

• Individual base configurations that are exclusively proprietary for your products
• The potential for increased re-lamp sales
• To create a matching socket
• A wide selection of colors available including all standard pantone colors as well as an option for premium colors upon request
• The chance to conform your system components to your corporate identity guidelines
• A much greater flexibility of design
• Professional engineering design assistance from our experts
• Bases made from the finest UV and ozone resistant ceramic

The experts at LightSources will assist you in designing your own lamp base, or if you want, we can design it completely for you. Our lamps can be configured without bases, bases with pigtails, special wiring harnesses, or bases made from other materials such as plastic or hybrid metal-ceramic. See our website or contact us to learn more about the process involved in customizing a quality lamp.

LightSources, along with our affiliated companies, represent today’s leading high-tech designers and manufacturers in the lamp industry. Our team consists of the most highly skilled professionals that specialize in a range of innovative solutions.

To ensure we are able to meet all individual specifications, our lamps can be customized from everything to shape, color, base, size, and ceramic end caps.

We recognize that for manufacturers and distributors of products such as scanners, computers, aircrafts or medical instruments, it is critical to retain your aftermarket. To assist in that effort, we provide OEMs across the globe the opportunity to distinguish themselves by creating proprietary products and private brands.

For example, you can customize your products from our wide selection of fluorescent lamps that are available in any lengths, any shape or in any proprietary phosphor blend. Our standard lamps range from T5, T8, T6, T10, to T12 and we have patented bases and sockets that are designed for clients’ exclusive use. In addition you can customize your lamps using our large variety of base/socket colors in a range of standard pantone colors or opt for one of our fully customized premium colors.

We have a professional team that is experienced in designing bases/sockets and offer our rapid prototyping service in one week or less. As prototypes are an important part of a preliminary system design, getting them into the hands of our clients quickly allows us to determine dimensional compatibility between our lamps and your system. Furthermore, the base/socket design and patenting process does not take as long as you may think. We have a lot of experience with creating unique base designs as well as dealing with Patent & Trademark offices. In fact your proprietary project can generally be ready for production in a couple of months. Please refer to our website for further information.

Continuous Expansion has Allowed Us to Serve Global Customers

post 72

LightSources and LightTech’s rise as industry leaders is due in part to our unparalleled professional staff and our ongoing commitment to technological research and development. We have also had the foresight to expand our production facilities to enable us to successfully serve the market with the best quality products available.

LightSources first got its start in 1983, when Christian L. Sauska and his former business partners established the company with the goal of offering global OEM lamp designs and manufacturing that combined state-of-the-art technology with exceptional service and support. Our early success quickly made us aware that we needed to grow our operations to better serve our global customers. In 1993, LightTech, our European equivalent, got its start.

Early on, LightTech recognized the need to expand production capacity and in a short span of eight years they increased the Hungary facility from a mere 5,400 to 150,700 square feet.   The engineering team was also responsible for pioneering a method that simplified the process for changing the length and diameter in the lamp lines.

LightTech’s glass factory grew as well, and in 2001, created one of the most advanced glassworks in Europe. It has the capability of manufacturing T4, T5, T6, T8, T10 and T12 fluorescent and germicidal soft glass. The facility is located on our 20 acre European base in Dunakeszi, Hungary, which also houses all major operations including sales, administrative functions, manufacturing, warehousing and distribution.

Furthermore, LightSources and LightTech take a vertically integrated approach to eliminate any potential supply chain problems and quality issues. We continuously make improvements in the production side of our operations so that we have the ability to provide customers the highest quality products and exceptional service. We encourage you to explore our website to learn more.

MPUV Technology for Wastewater and Marine Ballast Water Treatment

blog 70 (2)

LightSources and LightTech expertly design, engineer and manufacture a line of medium pressure ultraviolet (MPUV) lamps in our state-of-the-art facilities using the finest materials available. These high-quality MPUV lamps are perfect for use in industries such as wastewater disinfection and marine ballast water treatment systems.

Our MPUV lamps provide at least 1,000 hours of life under normal operating conditions and are guaranteed for a period of one year after manufacture for any defects in materials and workmanship. Since MPUV lamps yield a higher UVC output than low pressure ultraviolet lamps (LPUV), they have the ability to easily handle higher flow rates of water disinfection than LPUV. Another benefit is they have a compact footprint that makes it easy to retrofit a system with our MPUV lamps.

Furthermore, the lamps produce a polychromatic (emission of multiple wavelengths) output. The advantage of the polychromatic output is that it is used to promote advanced oxidation processes (AOP’s) and is very effective in reducing and removing micro-pollutants such as pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, insecticides, etc. in waste water.

Another thing we offer to our clients is the opportunity to fully customize our MPUV lamps to fit your individual specifications and applications needs. LightSources’ lamps start at 100 watts per inch and go all the way up to as high as 700 watts per inch. The arc lengths of our MPUV’s range from 2 inches right up to 85 inches. All of our lamps are manufactured using high-quality, ultra-low water content fused quartz, and contain molybdenum foil within hard quartz capillaries to provide the lamps with a hermetic seal.

Constructed with pure tungsten pin electrodes with an over-wind of throated tungsten, we use an exacting process to pump and fill each lamp with an inert Argon gas to ensure accuracy of the fill pressure and mercury content. Also our lamps are marked with a serial number that allows us to trace the process from start to finish in regards to production and measurement. Furthermore, we have an extensive line of metal and ceramic bases suitable for electrical termination and that provide a safe and effective electrical conductivity.

LightSources and our affiliated companies represent the leading high-tech designers and manufacturers in the lamp industry today. Our team consists of the most highly skilled professionals that specialize in a range of innovative solutions.
