High-quality Fluorescent Lamps with the Truest Color

post 116

Presenting the best quality of fluorescent light is of the upmost importance to many OEMs such as manufacturers of jewelry showcases and other displays, signage and similar types of applications. In fact many OEMs are looking for fluorescent lamps that “reproduce” color in relation to a natural or ideal light source. At LCD Lighting (LCDL), we are one of the leading manufacturers of just such lights.

The color of fluorescent lighting is determined by the Color Rendering Index (CRI), which is defined as quantitatively measuring the ability of the light source to reveal the color and quality of the light. The index uses a numerical scale from 0 to 100 percent, and the higher the CRI, such as an 80 – 95 percent, the truer the light is thought to be. At the top of the scale, a CRI of a 100 percent is natural daylight created by the sun.

One thing to keep in mind is that the CRI is completely independent of color temperature and lamps with the same color temperature light source can have different CRIs. However the phosphor used in manufacturing lamps is the determining factor of 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 LCDL, our proprietary color rendering index (CRI) offers the ability to produce more rare earth tri-phosphors to give our fluorescent lamps the truest color with a natural look. In addition we offer OEMs and other end-users the chance to get custom colors and images for unique products and application requirements. Also even with our 100 various shades of white or phosphor blends, if we do not already manufacture what you need, we will develop a new blend exclusively for your application. Please refer to our website for further information regarding our exceptional line of standard and customized fluorescent lamps.

LightSources and its affiliated companies – LCD Lighting, Voltarc, LightTech, and Cerlux represent the leading high-tech designers and manufacturers in the lamp industry today. Our products are used world-wide in a variety of applications and industries such as our UV light air purification systems that offer a safe solution for sterilization, odor control, and the removal of toxic chemicals.

At LightSources and LightTech, we are always working on developing new ways to make our lamps safer for our customers and their workplace as well as the environment. One of these developments is our proprietary Shatter ProTech shield that offers a cost-effective solution for glass and mercury containment. Ideal for a broad range of applications, the unique shield optimizes light output while maximizing consumer protection.

When outfitted with a ProTech sleeve, your lamp’s UVC transmission loss is only 5% more than that of a lamp equipped with a quartz sleeve. In addition the cost-effective, proprietary shield is designed to easily cover a wide range of lamp geometries including linear, circular, U-shaped, compact PL’s and much more. If fact we can add the Shatter ProTech shield to virtually any of our lamps.

By completely containing the hazardous glass and mercury waste in the shield if a lamp breaks, the Shatter ProTech technology safely protects humans, food and beverages, and the environment. Imagine the benefit of not having to stop production until your site is fully cleaned up. Providing high performance at a low cost, the environmentally-friendly sleeve is also heat and acid resistant and offers an effective alternative to traditional quartz sleeves that are quite fragile.

The Shatter ProTech shield technology additionally helps industries to comply with strict local codes as well as FDA safety regulations. Applications range from food and beverage processing plants to the grocery industry, air purification, municipal drinking water treatment, chemical and silicon chip manufacturing, freshwater and marine fish farming, among others. Check out our website for further information on Shatter ProTech and our other innovative, proprietary solutions.
