NEW YORK - American Ultraviolet Co. announced that its low-pressure standard, and high-output quartz, UVC Germicidal Lamps have been tested and validated to effectively perform for 17,000 hours (two years), when operated on high frequency electronic ballasts from American Ultraviolet (including the company’s Sapphire™, CC, CC-R, DC, TB, and Mobile Room Disinfection Series units).

This significant improvement in lamp life performance allows customers to operate their HVAC fixtures for two years between lamp replacements, said the company.
