Industrial UV Curing

Linear Lamp Diagram

The High-Power Ultra-Violet (HPUV) Lamps are simply put, an electrical arc of light contained in a sealed, Mercury-doped environment. The combination of the Mercury and the Quartz tube itself results in a radiated output with very specific characteristics, with most output very deep in the UV spectrum. This output results in a great amount of heat energy, which is used for processes that need large quantities of Ultra-Violet energy.

Pressed Seal Exposure Lamps

Press Seal Lamp Diagram

Superior Quartz manufactures extremely high power mercury and metal halide lamps for the platemaking and micrographic industries. Common power levels the lamps operate at are between 500 to 1200 watts per inch. Special application lamps have been manufactured with power levels as 50 watts per inch and as high as 5000 watts per inch. These lamps are manufactured in both mercury and metal halide versions. The highest quality materials are injected into these heavy wall quartz lamps. Depending on the wattage and application, the lamps are constructed to carry the high currents with either an extra heavy molybdenum foil seal, a pressed seal or our patented dual molybdenum foil seal. Warranties vary with power levels as stated in the Curing Lamp Warranty section. Consult Superior Quartz's engineering department for special applications.

Caution: These Lamps emit large amounts of ultraviolet radiation which can be extremely harmful to eyes and skin. These lamps also operate at high internal pressure due to their high power levels.

Superior Blue Print Lamps

Blueprint lamp diagram

Superior Quartz continues to manufacture unexcelled whiteprint - blueprint lamps for the reprographic industry. Since 1960, Superior Quartz has been a major supplier to every reprographic machine manufacturer. The internal bulb is constructed of the finest grade of materials available. Depending on the wattage, the outer jacket is constructed of reprographic grade Pyrex or quartz. Optional non-fog lamps preventing the cylinder from being fogged by ammonium oxide are also available. All Pyrex jacked lamps are also available with an optional quartz jacket for enhanced printing. Caution must be taken when using quartz jacketed lamps because the infrared radiation will also increase. It is imperative that all whiteprint - blueprint lamps be wiped clean of all dirt and fingerprints to assure the user even printing. Installation and removal of lamps should be performed by qualified technicians only.

Cooling Tubes

Cooling tube diagram

Note: Supply dimensions to be assured of correct cooling tube.

Used in both the UV curing and disinfection industries, Superior Quartz manufacturers quartz cooling tubes with the highest grade of amorphous non-crystalline silicon dioxide tubing available. The UV curing cooling tubes are manufactured to exact dimensions by highly skilled quartz fabricators. A gold heat shield is then applied. Superior Quartz also supplies the same grade quartz tubes for the water disinfection industry with sizes ranging up to twelve inches in diameter. For any UV curing or water disinfection tube not listed, consult our factory for availability.
