This company has introduced a high-output, low-mercury UVC lamp for disinfecting air and water in commercial and residential environments. These easy-to-dispose of “green” lamps, which are also available as standard output lamps, have been tested and validated to effectively perform for 17,000 hours when operated on high-frequency electronic ballasts from American Ultraviolet Co. According to the manufacturer, the lamps are more effective at quickly cleaning up mold-laden and fouled coils, thus increasing HVAC operating efficiency and equipment life and improving indoor air quality through pass-by disinfection of airborne viruses and bacteria.
