JPN Germicidal lamp low-pressure, mercury-arc germicidal lamps are specially designed to produce the highest amounts of uv radiation - where 90% of energy
is typically generated at 254nm.
This radiation is very close to the peak of the germicidal effectiveness curve of 265nm, the most lethal wavelength to microorganisms. (see graph).
Our germicidal lamps are used extensively in the air purification markets and have been utilized in applications such as food and beverage, medical, HVAC (Heating,
Ventilation and Air Conditioning), pharmaceutical and the semiconductor sterilization industries.
Our germicidal lamps are essential components in the drinking water, wastewater and ground water remediation industries as well.
Advantages of UV Radiation:
Environmentally friendly, no dangerous or toxic chemicals that require specialized storage and/or handling and there are no concerns of overdosing. Since no chemicals are
added to the air/water there are no process by-products to be concerned with.
Cost effective - low initial capital cost and reduced operating costs.
Effective - UV radiation offers immediate treatment process with no requirements for holding tanks or long retentionƒexposure times.
Compatibility - UV radiation is highly compatible with other water and air treatment processes while introducing no changes in taste, odor, pH, conductivity or chemical properties
of the air/water in which it is used.
UVC Compact Germicidal Lamps
Our companies offer a superb line of UVC emitting compact germicidal lamps for applications in small spaces.
These lamps are consistently a favorite product among our clients. Compact lamps are available in a specially engineered two-tube linear innovative design, which allows a very
uniform output. We provide all standard lamp sizes as well as custom configurations. The high efficiency of a compact lamp is created by leaving a small dead space at the end
of each of the two parallel tubes. Because this area is not part of the path followed by the discharge (farther away from the center of the discharge column) the wall temperature
is lower than anywhere else creating a dedicated mercury cold spot.
These compact designs are available in soft glass (254nm only) and quartz glass for both 254nm and 185nm technology.
JPN Germicidal lamp also offer compact lamp designs using our patented pellet amalgam Technology.
Providing outstanding UVC efficiency, it is one of the best value solutions available in today’s market.
