Ultraviolet lamps come in various shapes and sizes and can be used in homes and businesses to highlight our favorite rooms and illuminate the workspace. UV light also provides multiple advantages and benefits in numerous industrial, commercial, and personal applications. Ultraviolet rays are UVA, UVB, or UVC, and are emitted at various wavelengths in nanometers (nm). Now let’s take a deeper look at the uses of UV tube

Let’s dive right in now, and you can click on the question that interest you, 

1 UV tubes can be effective in cleaning and purifying air and water

Facts have proved that ultraviolet lamp technology is very effective in cleaning and purifying air and water. People living all over the world are concerned about access to clean water, which is essential to health and overall well-being. UVC radiation can eliminate bacteria and harmful pollutants in the water without affecting the taste, characteristics, or changing the pH value. This is an effective method of water disinfection and has been proven safe without the use of chemicals or harmful volatile organic compounds (VOC) released into the environment.

UVC water purification is used in cities, many industrial and commercial processes across the country, and can now also be used for household consumers to purify drinking water. UVC germicidal lamps can improve people’s lives and contribute to a healthy environment in many applications.

1) Ultraviolet lamp tube technology is beneficial to aquaculture

UVC germicidal lamp tubes provide important disinfection qualities for marine life in fish hatcheries, farms, aquariums, and other aquaculture applications. Ultraviolet lamps are an important part of the health and well-being of marine life in many environments.

2) Ballast water treatment system

With the recent ballast water treatment convention that came into effect in September 2021, ships sailing in international waters must install an effective ballast water treatment system on their ships. Polluted ballast water is considered to be one of the greatest threats to the world’s oceans. When a ship collects ballast water at a port and releases it to a new foreign area, the invading marine life can thrive without natural enemies from its home environment, and in many cases will destroy the shipping industry.

LightSources provides high-quality UVC germicidal lamps that can safely and effectively treat ballast water. They have a compact design, a small footprint, and require minimal maintenance.

2 Air purification in hospitals, nursing homes, and other institutions

UVCA Group provides air and water purification for these and many other commercial and industrial applications. Our strategic partnership provides decades of expertise and abundant resources to provide on-time delivery for global OEMs. We provide low-voltage standard quartz lamps and low-voltage high-output germicidal lamps, which can effectively generate ultraviolet radiation between 185 nanometers and 254 nanometers. Ultraviolet radiation at 185nm produces ozone, which is one of the most effective ways to kill bacteria and viruses. Ultraviolet radiation emitted at 254nm has been proven effective in disinfecting air, water, and surfaces. UVC radiation changes the DNA of bacteria so that they cannot reproduce, thereby eliminating harmful threats.

UVCA Group and our affiliate partners provide customized solutions, and skilled design engineers have in-depth knowledge of UV technology for all applications. Our important partner Cerlux provides custom bases and sockets that match the color of your choice. If you are facing a challenging configuration or unique specifications, please contact our engineering department.
