Formed into a single serpentine or "Grid" configuration, these lamps are made to produce large amounts of UV Energy. Available in either Ozone Producing, Ozone Free or Phosphor Coated, JSE's UV Grid Lamps are a excellent way to flood your application with 185nm, 254nm or specialized wavelengths depending on your application. Special application or LCD Backlighting Lamps are available.
Atomic oxygen is simultaneously generated when molecular oxygen is dissociated by 184.9 nm and ozone by 253.7 nm uv. The 253.7 nm UV radiation is absorbed by most hydrocarbons and also by ozone.
The products of this excitation of contaminant molecules react with atomic oxygen to form simpler, volatile molecules which desorbs from the surface.
And equipped external oxygen source allow to speed up the cleaning process by supplying the oxygen to the cleaned surface.
Therefore, when both UV wavelengths are present atomic oxygen is continuously generated, and ozone is continually formed and destroyed.
