Germicidal lamps are clear with
special UV transmitting glass.
For use in sterilizers and air and water purifiers.

sterilization, water and air purification and surface disinfection.
Used in the Forming and Disinfection of Contact Lenses. Used in UV
Sterilizers for Fish Aquariums and Ponds. Fixed wavelength
spectrophotometer detector. Germicidal lamps allow 253.7nm UV-C
radiation from the mercury discharge to pass through the glass thus
penetrating and inactivating the DNA of most micro-organisms.

direct or reflected ultraviolet power emitted by this lamp. This lamp
is in Risk Group 3 per ANSI/IESNA RP-27.3-96. Adequate protection
