Low pressure UV lamps produce monochromatic radiation at 254 nm wavelength, which makes them ideal for a range of disinfection and sterilisation applications. The lamps tend to be long length, around 100cm, and emit UV at a high intensity.

Low pressure germicidal lamps have an operating lifetime of up to 12,000 hours and convert up to 40% of the lamp’s electrical power into UVC, offering an efficient and cost-effective alternative to medium pressure mercury lamps for water, air and surface disinfection systems, as well as controlling unwanted odours in the air.

Alpha-Purify lamps are guaranteed for 8,000 hours.
