The Viqua Sterilight Silver traditional UV systems use the Sterilume-EX UV lamps. These lamps are a low pressure, regular intensity mercury vapour lamp. They utilize 425 mA of current to fire at a 254nm wavelength of light. At a wavelength of 254nm microorganisms are inactivated, therefore the water becomes disinfected.
Sterilume-EX UV lamps have a proprietary stepped 4 pin configuration which couples with the ballast connector.
The Sterilight UV lamps hold a one year warranty.
All prices are plus V.A.T and delivery.
All UV systems include a quartz sleeve, which surrounds the lamp. The quartz sleeve provides thermal protection for the UV lamp and protects it from possible water damage. The quartz material used in Viqua's / R-Can's quartz sleeves are a 100% fused silica which lend to the sleeve's high transmittance. A high transmittance is important as the Sterilight UV light must travel through the sleeve to get to the water. There are a variety of quartz sleeve designs, depending on the system that they are being used in.
