Benefits • Guaranteed lifetime simplifying planned maintenance in professional applications • Security of effective disinfection over the useful lifetime of the lamp • Maintenance can be planned in advance, virtually eliminating the need for expensive spot replacement of prematurely failed lamps • High system efficacy because it is not required to over-design the purification system to maintain effectiveness of disinfection • Good environmental choice because of lowest amount of mercury
Features • Short-wave UV radiation with a peak at 253.7 nm (UVC) for disinfection purposes • Protective inside coating ensures constant UV output over the complete lifetime of the lamp • Long lifetime of 18000 hours (based on operation on a Philips electronic driver) • High reliability with the lowest percentage of lamps that fail prematurely in the market (90% of all lamps still operate on full output and quality after 15000 hif operated on a Philips electronic driver) • Special lamp glass filters out the 185 nm ozone-forming radiation • High Output versions available for optimum UVC output per lamp length, allowing for reduction of system size • Warning sign on lamp indicates that the lamp radiates UVC
Applications • Air disinfection systems in professional applications such as universities, hospitals, jails and laboratories • Upper air and whole room disinfection equipment in hospitals, intensive care units and surgery rooms • Areas with low maintenance and/or disruptive costs • Fish ponds and process water units
