UV Lamps

AML Instruments supply The Primarc UV Technologies extensive range of medium pressure mercury arc UV lamps suitable for all known UV curing systems. Offering outstanding performance, the lamps provide exceptionally good service life and consistent UV output.

Primarc UV curing lamps are used world-wide for the curing of inks and coatings in the printing, packaging and labelling industries as well as in a wide range of industrial environments, including CD/DVD manufacture, fibre optic cable production, wood products and electronics.

All Primarc UV curing lamps are manufactured from high-clarity, vitreous silica, normally referred to as quartz.  Quartz has the property of high-transparency to ultraviolet light, particularly at the shortwave end of the spectrum where over 90% of the UV energy generated is transmitted through the quartz.  The electrode components are manufactured using the highest-quality materials, ensuring long and reliable lamp life.

The Primarc Quality Standard ensures that each lamp is not only manufactured to the most stringent of specifications, but also lamp performance is consistent each time, every time.

UV Lamps Technical Specification

Primarc UV curing lamps are manufactured in lengths from 2 cm (less than 1”) to more than 400 cm (160 “) and currently at power outputs of up to 700 Watts per cm (1800 Watts per inch).

The lamps can be run on chokes, transformers or electronic power supplies.

Primarc have a complete range of their own originally designed lamps, or if required, lamps can be designed to meet customers’ specific requirements.

Primarc has been responsible for much of the UV technology development since 1970 and, during this time, the range of UV curing applications has grown considerably.

Today, mercury lamps are used for curing inks, varnishes, lacquers and adhesives in a vast range of industries including:

  • Printing & Label printing
  • Paper
