Germicidal / Purification (Air & Water)

Light is Purifying

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 is critical. OSRAM PURITEC HNS germicidal lamps provide peak intensity at 254nm that is ideal for highly effective sterilization of water, air, and surfaces.

There are many types of purification systems available that utilize germicidal lamps, from large stand alone units for disinfection of hospital rooms to small point of use units that will purify the water in a home. OSRAM offers a variety of PURITEC HNS lamps ranging in wattage and configuration to accomodate nearly any application.
