MPL general information

Lamp UV efficiency over power density
Lamp UV efficiency over power density

eta plus electronic gmbh develops and manufactures medium pressure UV lamps in the power range from 1 kW to 32 kW. Typical applications are curing of inks and varnishes;  disinfection of drinking and waste water; applications in the food and beverage industries or in the disinfection of swimming pools and ballast water.

The overall success of medium pressure UV lamps is based on its exceptionally high power density. As shown in Fig.1 the Medium Pressure UV Lamp (MPL) has the highest available power density of all existing UV lamp technologies.
The higher power density enables powerful, efficient and compact UV solutions. Due to the lower number of lamps, the system complexity and maintenance costs are significantly reduced.
The lamp UV radiant power is almost independent of ambient temperatures. This enables stable operation of UV systems under  even strongly varying process parameters. When powered by our perfectly matched electronic lamp control units ELC® the medium pressure lamps show exceptionally high lamp service lifetime and strongly minimized dependence on switching cycles. All relevant electrical lamp parameters are precisely close loop-controlled and monitored online. This enables smart and effective in-field diagnostics. This optimum lamp-ballast combination guarantees lowest system maintenance costs at highest reliability
