UVC germicidal lamps emit UV radiation between 100 nanometer (nm) and 280 nm with specialty germicidal lamps transmitting UV wavelengths at the most effective 254 nm. UVC wavelength in the 254 nm range is extremely effective at instantly killing viruses and bacteria in air, water and on surfaces. Ozone producing UVC germicidal lamps emit UVC radiation below 220 nm which is necessary to decompose oxygen, O², which produces ozone, O³. Ozone producing germicidal lamps are extremely effective and water purification systems and even eliminating odor in the air caused by airborne microorganisms.
UVC germicidal lamps target the DNA, or nucleic acid of the cells in the harmful bacteria and viruses, destroying them beyond the ability to reproduce which renders them dead and ineffective.
LightSources Provides UVC Germicidal Lamps for Air Purification
The LightSources Group leads the industry and specialty lamp design, engineering and manufacturing. Our Low-Pressure Mercury Discharge and Medium-Pressure Mercury Discharge lamps are used in air purification systems worldwide, providing clean and sterile air to promote health and wellness. Our Low-Pressure Mercury Discharge lamps are similar to a fluorescent lamp accept it is manufactured of soda – lime glass or quartz which allows the most effective UVC wavelength to pass in the lamp.
Our Medium-Pressure Mercury Discharge lamps are similar to a high intensity discharge (HID) lamp which emits UVC radiation in a broadband rather than a single line. Quartz germicidal lamps produce nearly double the UVC radiation emitted was standard germicidal lamps and are configured for T5 or T6 with 15mm and 19mm OD.
The LightSources Group has developed proprietary Amalgam UVC germicidal technology which provides increased stability during long-term operation.
The LightSources group consists of the leading high-tech lamp designers, engineers and manufacturers available today. We deliver innovative lighting solutions with first to market products which provide long-lasting life and energy savings with cost-efficient products.
