TUV T5 lamps are single- or double-ended UVC (germicidal) lamps used in professional water and air disinfection units. The small 16 mm diameter of the lamp allows for a small system design and design flexibility. TUV T5 lamps offer constant UV output over their complete lifetime, for maximum security of disinfection and high system efficacy.
Security of effective disinfection over the useful lifetime of the lamp
High system efficacy because it is not required to over-design the purification system to maintain effectiveness of disinfection
Good environmental choice because of lowest amount of mercury
Short-wave UV radiation with a peak at 253.7 nm (UVC) for disinfection
Protective inside coating ensures almost constant UV output over the complete lifetime of the lamp
Lamp glass filters out the 185 nm ozone-forming radiation
High temperature and UV-resistant lamp bases
High Output versions available for optimum UVC output per lamp length, allowing for further reduction of system size
Warning sign on lamp indicates that the lamp radiates UVC
Deactivation of bacteria, viruses and other micro-organisms
Air treatment systems
Industrial water disinfection equipment, e.g. for food & beverage industry
Small municipal water treatment systems
Swimming pool units
Residential drinking water units
Warning & Safety
A lamp breaking is extremely unlikely to have any impact on your health. If a lamp breaks, ventilate the room for 30 minutes and remove the parts, preferably with gloves. Put them in a sealed plastic bag and take it to your local waste facilities for recycling. Do not use a vacuum cleaner.
DANGER: Risk Group 3 Ultra Violet product. These lamps emit high-power UV radiation that can cause severe injury to skin and eyes. Avoid eye and skin exposure to unshielded product. Use only in an enclosed environment which shields users from the radiation.
