Advantages of Medium Pressure Lamps

  • Broad germicidal spectrum attacks different parts of the microorganism and destroys their repair mechanisms
  • There is no danger of microorganism repair that compromises your facility's water bio-security

The advantage of the wide germicidal wavelength: more tools to complete the job!

More efficient in virus inactivation

  • Uses much less UV energy than low pressure systems in virus inactivation
  • Easily inactivates chlorine-resistant microorganisms like cryptosporidium, giardia & pseudomonas
  • Greater effectivness against a wide variery of microorganisms


Medium Pressure lamps are extremely effective preventing bacteria re-generation

Fewer UV lamps needed

  • Fewer lamps means significant maintenance reduction
  • Optimises ability for real-time accurate monitoring of each individual lamp
  • In some cases, 2 to 4 Medium Pressure lamps can replace more than 50 Low Pressure lamps


Effective in cold and warm water 

  • MP lamps' efficiency is not influenced by water temperature, unlike LP lamps where lamp's output is affected outside their optimal operational temperature
