Mercury vapor lamps produce light with an electric arc and vaporized mercury. The outer lamp is often coated with phosphor which helps to counteract the bluish-green tint which is often created from mercury vapor as it can emit an unflattering ambient tint for the public eye. Phosphor coatings assist with emitting white light that is much more pleasing to the eye in overhead lighting structures.
Mercury lamps are proven to be more energy efficient that incandescent and fluorescent lighting, with long lasting high-performing lamp life. LightSources and our European Partner, LightTech, have developed proprietary technology for low-pressure mercury lamps (LP Hg lamp), providing powerful ultraviolet (UV) technology in a short efficient wavelength.
Our low-pressure mercury lamps convert 40% of electrical energy into effective UVC radiation used in several germicidal applications.
