Osram 55030 G16T5L/4PSE UVC 254nm Ozone-free 16w single ended T5 4pin
The OSRAM PURITEC HNS germicidal lamps provide highly effective UV-C irradiance at 254nm, which provides the needed effect for purification, without the use of toxic chemicals. These lamps are ideal for both air and water purification systems. PURITEC HNS lamps are reliable and efficient sources with long service life in excess of 8,000 hours. In addition, the special outer glass tube absorbs the lower wavelengths, suppressing the formation of ozone and ensuring environmentally friendly sterilization.

- High UV-C radiance at 254 nm
- Low mercury content
- Long lifetime due to special coating
Areas of application
- Water Purification
- Surface Sterilization
Most people don't think of light as a means of purifying or disinfecting, but special germicidal lamps emit high-intensity ultraviolet light that purifies air, water, and surfaces without the use of harsh chemicals that are harmful to the environment. For effective purification, the wavelength and intensity of the irradiance are critical. OSRAM PURITEC HNS germicidal lamps provide peak intensity at 254nm that is ideal for highly effective sterilization of water, air, and surfaces.
Ultraviolet (UV) purification is currently the most effective method to clean the air of biological pollutants such as bacteria, viruses, and fungal spores. UV germicidal lamps can be installed in ventilation ducts to clean the air passing through them. UV air purification is more economical and efficient than other air filtration and cleaning methods.
Often, water must be rid of pathogenic microorganisms to become safe for drinking. Ultraviolet radiation is employed to change the DNA structure of the micro-organisms, either by killing the bacteria immediately or rendering them unable to breed. Because UV purification is a physical disinfection method without any harmful chemicals, it does not produce any secondary pollution. This resolution results in no smelly odor or byproducts in the water.
For packaging pharmaceuticals and food, in aseptic zones in hospitals, and for surface cleaning of equipment and instruments, objects are exposed directly to UV radiation for disinfection.
- Effective, environmentally friendly disinfection without chemicals
- Low mercury content
- Ozone free
- Long economical life due to special high-quality coating
WARNING & SAFETY:
- DANGER: These lamps produce Ultraviolet light. These lamps emit high-power UV radiation that can cause severe injury to the skin and eyes.
- Use only in an enclosed environment which shields users from the radiation.
- Avoid direct or reflected exposure to the G36T8 as this can cause serious skin burns and eye injury.
- The G36T8 lamp SHOULD NOT BE USED FOR ILLUMINATION PURPOSES.
- Do not use the Germicidals where people will remain for more than a few minutes unless adequate shielding or other safety precautions are used.
- Skin and eye protection should be always worn when operating ANY Germicidal Lamp.
- This lamp produces Ozone. A 185 nm UV light produces UV energy in wavelengths shorter than 220 nm which decompresses oxygen, O², to produce ozone, O³.
