UV lamps for disinfection

The microbes such as bacteria, viruses, fungi, yeast, protozoa ... pathogens or not, are beings vulnerable to the effects of ultraviolet light at wavelengths near 253.7 nanometers (UV-C range), where it acts as a germicide altering the molecular structure of the organisms sterilizing and preventing its reproduction.

These microbes are mostly responsible or spreaders of diseases such as influenza, gastroenteritis, salmonellosis ... Besides these more frequent bacteria, others germs more dangerous such as the Anthrax or the cholera causer, are also sensitive to the UV radiation.

Germs sensitive to ultraviolet

Because of this, the use of an ultraviolet germicidal radiation system directly impacts the quality of life of people and animals in those rooms where microbes can thrive. For example, laboratories, hospitals, food handling, drugs, etc..

Types of germicidal lamps

There are several types depending on use and the power needed. Among others there are variants with and without ozone generation, compact size, for use in air, water, etc. We list the most common:

Low pressure

Germicidal UV Fluorescent

Linear fluorescent lamps

They consist of a glass tube that emits short wave ultraviolet light.

Main applications: residential water use, air purifiers ...

Compact germicidal lamps

Compact fluorescent lamps

Their use are practically the same as with linear fluorescent but with the advantage of being much more compact and with a single connection point.

Applications: Ponds, insertion in air ducts or vents...

Fluorescent T5 germicidal

T5 range

With a smaller diameter than the standard germicidal fluorescent meet the strictest waste regulations. Variants with circuitry on one or both ends.

Applications: Treatment of municipal water systems, swimming pools, air collectors...

Mid pressure

HOK lamp for disinfection

These mercury discharge lamps are up to 120 W/cm and emit a broader spectrum than the previous ones, in some cases even emit below 240 nm where ozone is formed.

Applications: Treatment of municipal wastewater, industrial process...

Amalgam lamps

Amalgam UV lamps

Amalgam lamps combine the advantages of the above lamps, providing a high efficiency and with low depreciation UVC emission.

Applications: water processing units, reduction of organic compounds (ozone emission versions), treatment of ducts.
