The amalgam UV lamps from Infralight Technology
are designed to operate efficiently at higher operating temperatures.
Infralight's ultraviolet UV amalgam series is a cost effective alternative to medium pressure lamps. These lamps can be custom built to provide the equipment manufacturer with an ultraviolet lamp that fits their equipment needs.
The Germicidal Ultraviolet (UV) Lamps are available in standard low pressure, low pressure high output and low pressure amalgam.
Amalgam UV lamps are best suited to high flowing water treatment systems where high fluency rates are required, often built into multi-lamp reactor units.
Many equipment manufactures including Trojan and Wedeco have been using amalgam lamps in their UV units for many years.
Wastewater treatment and sewage treatment systems that have slow flowing water, or water that remains still for long periods of time are not suited to amalgam lamp systems because the lamps will become too hot inside the quartz sleeve.
Amalgam UV lamps cost more than normal low pressure lamps. The higher ultraviolet output of amalgam lamps does result in a good return in the long term because less lamps are required than standard if lamps are used and they have much they have longer lifetimes than medium pressure lamps.
