FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT IS ULTRAVIOLET LIGHT?
Bright light is imperceptible to the human eye. It is a piece of the electromagnetic range that lies past the purple scope of the unmistakable range. The bright (or UV) range has wavelengths in the vicinity of 100 and 400 nanometers (nm). The UV range is additionally partitioned into wavelength ranges named UVA, UVB, UVC:
UVA: sun tanning, testing, assessment, creepy crawly traps, arrange impacts, blacklight, phototherapy (315-400nm)
UVB: sun consuming, investigation, examination, testing, phototherapy (280-360nm)
UVC: germicidal (253.7nm), ozone delivering (185nm)
Phototherapy for treatment of skin ailments utilizes knobs producing in the UVA and UVB otherworldly range. There is likewise non-UV phototherapy for treatment of newborn child jaundice. These globules, "bili lights", are low or non-UV producing fluorescent or halogen sources with solid blue light in the noticeable phantom scope of 425-475nm.
Cautioning: UV radiation is destructive to skin and eyes.
Can UV LIGHTING BE USED FOR WATER PURIFICATION?
Water purging may appear a sudden subject for a lighting bulletin. In any case, progressively, as studies demonstrate that chemicals like chlorine are losing the battle against specific pathogens, talk swings to utilizing bright light. The EPA as of late approached city water providers to treat water with UV radiation to inactivate key pathogens, for example, adenovirus and different infections, and also microbes and parasites, for example, Giardia.
What's useful for city water is likewise useful for an entire host of different applications, for example, hot tubs, swimming pools, water gardens and aquariums. Bright germicidal lights create vitality at 253.7 nanometers. Lights utilized for water cleansing additionally emanate radiation at 185 nanometers for ozone generation. These wavelengths are not unmistakable to the human eye, albeit germicidal lights likewise radiate some obvious light.
The lights are evaluated by UV yield in watts (not to be confounded the wattage of the light). On the off chance that you have either water or air sanitization applications, see Topbulb's broad line of bright lights. Call us in the event that you require help with UV light issues.
