LightSources Partners with Small and Medium Sized OEMs

post 75

The term OEM stands for Original Equipment Manufacturer. When you stop to think about the number of items that us multi-tasking humans use during any given day, you would realize that for every physical item you hold in your hand, there were probably several OEM’s contributing parts for the finished product. Whether it’s a cell phone, a laptop or tablet, or a flashlight – Manufacturing is big business.

Every industry has large corporations in their supply chain, but it’s the contribution of small businesses (defined as a business with less than 500 employees) that is the lifeblood of the US Economy. According to the Small Business Administration (SBA), small businesses represent 99% of all employer firms, 44% of all US private payroll, and generate 64% of new jobs. Entrepreneurship is alive and strong, and while many small companies strive to acquire more market share, they must also receive the same level of service from their suppliers.

A-Power   Our A-Power™ family of tanning lamps use patented superior UVA output technology that also emits powerful UVB rays that peak at the optimal wavelength output, providing a long lasting tan.

MulltiTone technology employs dual coating for varying degrees of exposure that alter from the face, body and extremities. These proprietary lamps are the combined effort of research and development from both our domestic and European partners, resulting in lamps that provide the optimum UVA and UVB wavelength output to deliver an even tan on different parts of the body.   It’s like two or three tanning lamps in one!

Peak2® is our proprietary technology with a balanced phosphor mix that emits both high UVA and UVB output with just one phosphor. This patented technology delivers dual spectral peaks in the maximum pigmentation range.

SolGlass™ lamps are the only in the industry emitting optimal wavelengths at 300nm combined with our proprietary technology allowing for over 75% of UVB energy to pass through, compared to 36% for typical tanning lamps. This narrow-band UVA provides immediate coloring.

Twist Swirl is a uniquely shaped lamp with wattages available between 100W through 225W, and is available in all standard lengths. This custom designed glass comes with or without a 180° reflector, and either a dual or tri-coat.

UVC Technology Used for Water Treatment

blog 10 img 1

Ultraviolet light is emitted naturally by the sun, and is a form of electromagnetic energy. UV Light is split into four specific areas of the spectrum: UVA emits energy within the long range of wavelengths at 315 to 400 nanometers (nm), UVB rays are within the 280nm to 315nm range, UVC emits shorter and more powerful wavelengths yet with a 200nm to 280nm range, while Vacuum UV is the shortest wavelength of UV light within the 100nm to 200nm range, just a tad bit higher than wavelengths required for an x-ray.

UVC lighting has been proven to have the most effect on germ killing and elimination of microbial organisms, particularly at the 254nm wavelength. When bacteria or viruses are exposed to UVC lighting, the ability for the organism to reproduce is halted by destroying the DNA it needs to develop.   If an organism cannot reproduce, it becomes harmless since it cannot reproduce and quickly diminishes.

UVC technology is used in several industrial applications for disinfecting water, such as waste water treatment plants, agriculture, and the medical industry, to name just a few.   UVC lighting provides a safe and cost effective solution, and is easy to maintain. In the past, chemical treatment with chlorine was the preferred choice for water treatment, which can leave harmful residual chemicals in the water.   Treatment of water with UVC lighting will provide powerful purification results, with no hassle of maintaining chemicals and no risk of leftover harmful contaminants.

LightSources and LightTech have extensive knowledge with providing the most powerful germ killing lighting solutions for OEM’s worldwide, and will know exactly what type of lamps you need for your application. If you are looking for a simple, effective and inexpensive germicidal process, contact the experts at LightSources. We have developed proprietary technology for our Low Pressure Pellet Amalgam lamps, and our Medium Pressure UVC lamps, both of which emit the proper wavelength for superior elimination of microorganisms.

We can assist you with our standard products or custom design a solution just for you. Let us guide you with our experience and assist you with our resources to develop your own cost effective UVC germicidal solutions.

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.
