    Indoor Air Quality: Why Monitoring Pollutant Levels Pays Off for Businesses & Schools

    Indoor Air Quality: Why Monitoring Pollutant Levels Pays Off for Businesses & Schools

    Posted by on for ProLampSales

    Interest in indoor air quality in public buildings such as offices, schools and other institutions has increased as the demand for lower energy consuming buildings has resulted in tighter building envelopes that reduce uncontrolled leakage of heated or cooled air. Tight buildings place a premium on the importance of ventilation. When air change rates and air filters are not adequate, the chance of health impacts on occupants increases. Indoor Pollutants Tight buildings can save energy....

    Building HVAC Systems Provide An Ideal Opportunity for UV Air Disinfection

    Building HVAC Systems Provide An Ideal Opportunity for UV Air Disinfection

    Posted by on for ProLampSales

    Owners and facility managers looking for a way to disinfect the indoor air in offices, medical centers, retail stores, schools and residential care facilities will find that their HVAC system may provide the safest and most cost-effective approach. Buildings equipped with a ducted heating, ventilating and air-conditioning (HVAC) system are prime candidates for in-duct ultraviolet (UV-C) units that can provide whole-building air sanitizing. UV-C germicidal lamps emit 253.7 nanometer wavelength irradiation that, in sufficient doses,...

    Upper Air UVC Fixtures Safely Disinfect Air While Rooms Are Occupied

    Upper Air UVC Fixtures Safely Disinfect Air While Rooms Are Occupied

    Posted by on for ProLampSales

    Upper air ultraviolet germicidal equipment is designed to provide air disinfection within an occupied space. The louvered upper air units are wall or ceiling mounted above the "human zone" in the space, generally at 7 feet or higher. The usual UV-C 253.7 nanometer (nm) wavelength emitted by the germicidal light bulbs is directed out of the unit by the louvers and into the layer of air at or above the mounting height of the unit....

    A Maintenance Schedule Ensures Long-Term Performance of LED Lighting Systems

    Posted by on for ProLampSales

    While sellers of LED lighting often promote the savings benefits of reduced maintenance because of the long life of LED light sources, this can obscure the fact that maintenance remains a key function for the successful operation of LED systems. Maintenance of all types of commercial lighting systems includes re-lamping, power supply management, controls optimization and fixture cleaning. LED systems are no different, even if the specific tasks are not the same. Whether maintenance is...

      UV Curing: A Growth Industry

      UV Curing: A Growth Industry

      Posted by on for ProLampSales

      Dating back to the late 1960's and early 1970's, ultraviolet light was used to cure wood fillers and coatings on furniture. Since then, with the development of a wide range of UV curable materials and specialized equipment, UV curing has grown exponentially - widely adopted in manufacturing, graphic arts, and printing. Technically, UV curing is the polymerization of a coating, adhesive, or ink when it interacts with ultraviolet radiation. This process makes possible rapid drying...

      Should You Buy a Bare Projector Bulb or the Whole Lamp Module?

      Should You Buy a Bare Projector Bulb or the Whole Lamp Module?

      Posted by on for ProLampSales

      While projector lamp modules may fit only one or a limited number of projectors, the bulb inside of the cage may fit dozens or hundreds of projectors from a wide range of manufacturers. This makes bare projector bulbs a popular and versatile product. While it's far easier to replace the entire projector lamp module, bare bulbs are often significantly less expensive. The challenge with buying projector lamps - in housing or bare bulbs - is how...
