LED UV lamps: protective & effective

UV radiation from the Sun, if correctly dosed in terms of intensity and wavelength, can be highly effective.

UV technology, if applied to lamps, can be very useful in different fields, and is used differently depending on intensity and wavelength (UV-A, UV-B, UV-C). In particular, it can be highly effective in reducing the amount of bacteria, the virulence of harmful organisms and the presence of pathogens, in addition to breaking down volatile organic compounds (VOC), resulting in the minimisation of foul odours in general.

Our Research & Development team has been conducting in-depth studies on this technology for years; today, we can customise it according to specific needs and expectations, for the countless fields of application of UV LEDs.

Main applications of LED UV lamps:

  • Air and water purification
  • Fruit and vegetable storage in refrigerators
  • Sanitation of food production lines
  • Preservation of materials and surfaces
  • Microbial load reduction
  • Elimination of foul smells
  • Improvement of living conditions in confined spaces

This technology is increasingly necessary in everyday life, and today, it is made even more effective thanks to LED technology, which replaces traditional mercury lamps.

Comparison between the characteristics of UV LEDs and UV Mercury lamps

Since UV LEDs do not contain mercury, they are eco-compatible, with a longer life, and they ensure energy savings and less heat loss.

Solar radiation brings to our planet all wavelengths, including ultraviolet (UV) which is largely filtered by the ozone layer, protecting our health.

Advantages of LED UV lamps compared to mercury UV lamps

Life

Over 30,000 hours of life, i.e. a longer life cycle than earlier UV lamps

Efficiency

Low energy consumption, heat generation virtually non-significant

Environment friendliness

They do not contain mercury, therefore, they are also safer

Immeditate lighting

No warming-up time required

Compact size

LED lamps are considerably more compact
