How to Find the Best Mercury Lamp Supplier

post 100

Mercury lamps are proven to be cost effective with energy saving efficiencies, saving energy when compared to incandescent and fluorescent lighting.  LightSources and European partner, LightTech, are leading suppliers of a wide variety of lamps used in specialty applications around the globe.  We have developed patented products with proprietary technology designed to provide longer lasting life with high performance in all lamps, including our low-pressure mercury lamps (LP Hg lamps) used in various germicidal applications.

LP Hg lamps developed by the LightSources group convert up to 40% of electrical energy into effective ultraviolet (UV) energy in short wavelengths providing maximum UVC germicidal sterilization.

Powerful Mercury Lamps Developed by LightSources and LightTech

An electric arc used with vaporized mercury is used to produce light in mercury lamps, usually in a phosphor coated lamp.  The phosphor blend coating the lamp helps to offset any blue green tint that the mercury vapor creates, which casts an unflattering illumination in many public places.   The phosphor coating assists in emitting a whiter light that is pleasing to the eye in public places, so it is often used in large arenas and venues.

Long-Life™ Proprietary Technology

Long-Life technology developed by LightSources and LightTech extend lamp product life with a specialty coating, providing high performance up to end of product life cycle, extending the operating life of your UVC mercury lamps.

LightSources and LightTech supply OEMs large and small with a wide variety of innovative lighting technologies.  Our low-pressure mercury lamps are available in quartz or soft glass, with either ozone free or ozone generating lamps, custom designed for your unique application.

Our experienced and skilled engineers work closely with customers to assist with development of proprietary lamp components to increase your brand awareness.  We provide high performing long lasting lamps used in germicidal applications for air, water and surface disinfection, UV curing processes, fluorescent lamps used in signs and industrial applications, and phototherapy lamps providing several health benefits.

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 quartz and mercury lamps that offer patent-protected, OEM-oriented solutions.  Please contact us to learn more about our wide selection of standard and custom designed lamps.

Innovative Supplier of Quartz Lamp Products


The LightSources group consists of recognized global leaders in the lighting industry, providing proven solutions for any lighting application including soft glass, quartz lamps, fluorescent lamps and UV lamp solutions.   Our experienced team of valued partner companies provide the most innovative solutions with proprietary and proven technologies available in the lighting industry today.

Our Quartz lamp solutions are available in either ozone free or ozone generating technologies, with standard or high output models.  Our mercury vapor lamps offer powerful UV germicidal technologies, emitting precisely 253.7 nanometer (nm) wavelength for the most effective germicidal applications.

Quartz lamps are proven to be stronger and more resistant to breaking over glass or soft glass, delivering added strength and protection against breakage.  Quartz is resistant to solarization, which happens when UV radiation changes the ability of lamps and optical components to transmit UV light.  Quartz allows for the most UV transmission with minimal absorption, providing long lasting high performance with maximum quality output.

Quartz remains cooler than glass lamp products, which provides added transparency in many applications allowing for maximum UV transmittance with higher luminous efficacy.  The LightSources group provides patented products designed for maximum operating life with proprietary technologies.

The LightSources group consists of the most innovative and technologically advanced companies in the lighting industry, employing knowledgeable fluorescent and UV experts along with highly skilled design engineers for any lighting application.  We understand the technology behind the products.

Our Quartz halogen lamps are incandescent lamps enveloped in quartz instead of glass with a filament in the bulb surrounded by a halogen gas which is typically iodine.  Quartz iodine lamps contain a tungsten filament that reacts with the iodine to allow for maximum lumen output without blackening of the bulb.

LightSources, along with our valued partner LightTech, offer the most advanced lighting solutions available in the industry.  We provide quick turn around with rapid prototyping, satisfying the demanding requirements of OEMs worldwide with quality lamps, delivered on-time.   If you are searching for a high-quality supplier of lamp products and components, including fluorescent, UV, glass, soft glass or quartz lamp products, contact us for the most advanced products available today.

Mercury Lamps are Powerful and Cost Effective



post 112

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.

Superior High-Performance Mercury Lamp Models

LightSources and our affiliated companies are leaders in the lighting and UV technology industry, possessing in-depth knowledge of ultraviolet radiation technology.  We offer several models for a multitude of applications.  Our specialty mercury lamps include ozone generating or ozone free lamps, soft glass or quartz, standard or high-output, and low-pressure amalgam lamps.  Our various models of high-performance mercury lamps include standard models or custom designed solutions specific to your equipment and application.

LightSources employs highly skilled design engineers with extensive knowledge in ultraviolet radiation and superior lamp design, providing expert assistance to OEMs with custom designed products.   We provide assistance with developing proprietary lighting solutions specific to your mercury lamp application.
