Proper Handling of MPUV Lamps
MPUV lamps in particular must be handled with care and anyone working with MPUV lamps should be well educated on the proper safety procedures. It is important to wear a clean wrapper or cotton gloves, to handle lamps only when they are cold and to avoid touching the lamp with bare hands. In the event a lamp is accidentally touched you should clean the exterior of the lamp with oil free alcohol to remove all skin oils.
You can extend the life of MPUV lamps by avoiding excessive lamp starts, particularly cold starts, and starting the lamps in the high power setting. Keeping your lamps and all ancillary lighting equipment clean with proper ventilation is important to maximize performance and longevity. Make sure that all of your lamp connections are secure, clean and routinely replace reflectors and any required components.
Safety is the number one concern when handling MPUV lamps and all operators should be aware that UV rays emitted from Mercury lamps may be harmful to human tissue. Avoid looking directly at UV lamps while operational and remember that reflected UV light could be harmful as well as direct light exposure. Use ozone producing lamps only in well ventilated areas and be sure to review our educational materials available on the handling and proper use of all UV lamps.
