Composition of far UV-C lamp
Mysoter®’s Far UV-C lamp consists of a tube filled with a gas called krypton chloride. This gas has the unique property of emitting UV-C-light at 222 nm when a discharge is applied to it. When the lamp is turned on, electricity creates a discharge that excites the gas and after a short period of time, UV-C light at 222 nm is emitted.
A Far UV-C lamp without a filter emits light in a narrow band around a 222 nm peak, but also releases secondary emissions around 235 nm and 250 nm. These extra wavelengths are known as side-bands or side-emissions. These wavelengths are harmful to humans, but the unique and patented safety filter in UV222 blocks them before they are emitted into the surrounding environment.
The safety filter technology in the lamp from Ushio Care222® is a thin filter that only lets through light at around 222 nm and blocks all other unwanted radiation. It works much in the same way as sunglasses with UV protection, blocking the UV radiation from passing through and enterinAsk for free quote
