UV Curing Lamps

How Do They Work ? - Typical applications

Doping and quartz types in UV medium pressure lamps

Medium pressure UV lamps are mainly installed where uv-reactive paints or coatings are used. Photo initiators within the substances are exposed to UV radiation thus creating a reaction between the ink and the lacquer called polymerization. In addition to paints and coatings, industrial UV radiation is used in many other fields, e.g. in materials testing, photochemistry and also for disinfection of material surfaces, air and water.

In the following areas UVH lamps are mainly applied:

  • Graphic arts industry
  • Wood industry
  • Electrical Industry

The main advantages of the UV processes are:

  • The materials are free of solvents and therefore environmentally friendly
  • The timing of the cure can be freely defined
  • The uv cure is instantaneous, therefore high production speeds can be achieved

UV medium pressure lamps can be manufactured with lengths between 40 mm and 2800 mm and are available for capacities up to 60 kW.
