What is the different between Low Pressure and Medium Pressure UV lamps?

There are obvious differences between low pressure and Medium Pressure UV lamps in wavelength,Effect,Structure.lifespan,Disinfection speed and Safety.

Definition and wavelength: The wavelength range of medium pressure lamp ultraviolet is 200nm-400nm, while the wavelength range of low pressure lamp ultraviolet is 100nm-280nm.

Effect: Low pressure lamp ultraviolet radiation is mainly used to kill bacteria, viruses and other microorganisms in the air, making the air fresher; Medium pressure ultraviolet lamp radiation is mainly used to kill bacteria, viruses and other microorganisms in water, and is widely used in water treatment and other fields.

Structure: Medium pressure ultraviolet lamps use xenon gas to emit ultraviolet rays, while low pressure ultraviolet lamps require the addition of liquid or vapor mercury to emit ultraviolet rays.

Lamp lifespan: The service life of medium pressure UV lamps is longer than that of low pressure UV lamps.

Disinfection speed: The disinfection speed of the medium pressure ultraviolet sterilizer is faster.

Safety: The medium pressure ultraviolet sterilizer can automatically detect the ultraviolet intensity of the environment during use, preventing ultraviolet leakage and making it safer and more reliable.

Application areas: The application areas of medium pressure ultraviolet and low pressure ultraviolet are different. Medium pressure ultraviolet is mainly used in swimming pool water, sewage treatment while low pressure ultraviolet is widely used in air purification, object surface disinfection and drinking water fields.

In summary, medium voltage ultraviolet and low voltage ultraviolet differ in terms of wavelength, efficacy, structure, lamp life, disinfection speed, and safety. Therefore, the selection should be based on actual needs and the environment.
