ATS UV Lamps / Bulbs #: ATS-1-805, DWS-6, DWS-7, DWSW-6, SE-7
High temperature filaments emit some energy in the region. Small amounts of other elements can be mixed into the quartz, so that the quartz (or selective optical coating) blocks harmful UV radiation. Hard glass blocks UV and has been used extensively for the bulbs of car headlights. Alternatively, the halogen lamp can be mounted inside an outer bulb, similar to an ordinary incandescent lamp, which also reduces the risks from the high bulb temperature. Undoped quartz halogen lamps are used in some scientific, medical and dental instruments as a UV-B source.
Like most light bulbs, UV lamps dim over time. After 12 months, even if the lamp is still shining (hasn’t burnt out), the lamp needs to be replaced as it is no longer able to effectively treat water. Most are designed to run continuously for about 9,000 hours (or 12 months) before losing their effectiveness.
Light traps are the safest and one of the most effective insect traps around. Light traps do not involve the use of chemicals for its baits. As their name suggests, light traps use ultraviolet lights to lure insects and trap them using glue pads located near the lamps. Light traps are electrical devices and electricity powers the trap bulbs. Like other lighting devices, bulbs get busted after several periods of use. Light traps are functional only when their UV lamps are emitting the luring lights. You can install Replacement UV Bulbs on compatible light traps which can accommodate 18-inch UV lamps. Pestmall offers replacement lamps designed to fit on various fly trap models such as the FlyTrap Professional 30W, Gardner GT180 Slimline, Gardner WS85 Wall Sconce, Lauralite Pro, Mantis 1x2, Vector Classic and Insect-A-Trap 30W Fruit Fly Trap.Before installing the replacement UV bulbs, first check the trap model and then refer to its user guide and product manual. Bulb replacements require little technical skills and can be done by properly by following the instructions printed on the trap's manuals. Replacing busted UV bulbs in trap assemblies typically starts by taking apart the trap assembly and removing of lamp covers, followed by the access and removal of the damaged bulbs, replacement lamp installation and finally, reassembling the UV trap.LED lamps come with bulbs that are never replaced and last 50,000 hours. Bulbs in UV lamps can vary by manufacturer but generally last around 100 hours, then can be replaced for around $30. 100 hours doesn’t seem like much, but remember that each manicure only takes 5 minutes of curing so if you do your nails once per week then the UV bulbs would last you 23 years before needing to be changed. Ultimately, either type of lamp is a great investment as it will last you decades (If you buy from a reliable and high quality brand).This genuine Honeywell UV lamp emits UV-C light, which is the same ultraviolet light technology hospitals, pharmacies, labs and kitchens use to sterilize mold spores and bacteria and prevent viruses from reproducing. With UV, virus and flu carrying particles can be rendered sterile -- thus disabling the virus or bacteria from reproducing. Since most viruses infect people by reproducing, ultraviolet air treatment is one of the best ways to neutralize them. Honeywell UV bulbs are one of the best ways to disinfect your air, but UV air disinfection is even more effective when paired with a high efficiency MERV 13 air filter. According to the National Institutes for Health, Compact Fluorescent Lamps have the potential for emitting ultraviolet light, a high-energy, invisible form of light that can cause sunburn, skin cancers and other problems. The coiled bulb’s internal phosphor coating can crack, allowing small amounts of UV light to pass through. Although few lighting technologies produce no UV at all, most fall well within accepted safe limits.
