ULTRAVIOLET  LAMPS by WAY-TOO-COOL, Technical Information.

One very strong selling point for the Philips bulbs used in the "WAY-TOO-COOL" UV lamps  is that they put out more UV over the life of the bulb than the standard quartz bulbs. The Philips bulbs also contain much less mercury in them than the standard quartz bulbs. This is a much healthier approach and better for our environment. Philips also uses a different kind of glass so that none of the ozone producing UV gets emitted from the bulb. Most of the standard quartz bulbs do produce ozone. Philips figured out that part of the reason that the standard quartz bulbs lose efficiency is that mercury gets into the structure of the quartz and changes it so that less UV gets through. Because the mercury adsorbs into the glass, the standard quartz bulb manufacturers have to put in about 5 times as much mercury so that there will be enough over the useful life of the bulb. Philips found that by putting a coating of yittrium oxide on the inside of the bulb helps to stop the mercury from getting into the glass thereby reducing the  amount of mercury needed. This coating allows the bulb to emit more UV over the life of the bulb. Tests have shown that at 10,000 hours of use, other manufacturers quartz bulbs are emitting only about 53% of the UV that they did when the bulbs were new. The Philips bulbs however, still emit about 80% of the UV as when they were new. Quartz bulbs do start out with a little greater UV output since quartz glass allows about 92% of the UV through while the boro-silicate glass of the Philips bulb only allows about 88% of the UV through. The crossover point where the Philips bulb starts outperforming the quartz bulb is about 2,000 hours. For the rest of the 8,000 hours of typical use, the Philips bulb produces much more UV than the quartz bulbs.

Models are available from 9 watts to 190 watts. The display lamps operate on 110-220 volt AC with an automatic electronic ballast, but can be custom made to operate on other electrical grids as well. The standard display models are made in a metal fixture with a black powder coat finish, stainless steel lids and a black plastic handle. The smaller 12 volt field units come in an attractive black ABS enclosure with a black plastic handle. They are light weight and easy to use. Internal reflectors are made from a highly polished aluminum. The short wave and mid wave models feature Hoya filter glass for the very best in ultraviolet transmission and resistance to solarization.
"WAY-TOO-COOL" ultraviolet lamps come with a one (1) year warranty against manufacturing defects. 
Choose once, choose wisely, choose "WAY-TOO-COOL".
