Low Pressure Germicidal Lamps

A germicidal lamp is a special type of lamp which produces ultraviolet (UVC) light. This short-wave ultraviolet light disrupts DNA base pairing and leads to the inactivation of bacteria, viruses, and protozoa. It can also be used to produce ozone for water disinfection.

Low Pressure Germicidal Lamps, which are the most common form, looks similar to an ordinary fluorescent lamp but the tube contains no fluorescent phosphor. In addition, rather than being made of ordinary borosilicate glass, the tube is made of fused quartz.

Germicidal lamps are used to sterilize workspaces and tools used in biology laboratories and medical facilities. Various types of Germicidal low pressure lamps are used in sanitizing systems of hot tubs and aquariums. They are also used by geologists to provoke fluorescence in mineral samples, aiding in their identification. And more importantly used at waste water treatment facilities in order to kill microorganisms.
