How Do Philips UV Lamps Work? 

UV-C radiation is germicidal, which means it deactivates the DNA of bacteria, viruses and other pathogens, destroying their ability to multiply.

More specifically, Philips ultraviolet lamps cause damage to the nucleic acid of microorganisms by forming covalent bonds between certain adjacent bases in the DNA. When these bonds form, the organism is incapable of reproducing, in fact, when the organism does try to replicate, it dies.

Philips UV Lamps FAQs

What is a Philips UV Lamp Used for?

A UV Philips lamp is used for disinfectant purposes. It sterilises surfaces, air, objects and water, reducing the risks of bacteria growth and making them ideal for medical environments.

A Philips UVC lamp, or germicidal lamp, is also commonly used in water filtration systems, inactivating bacteria, viruses and spores that grow in these habitats. New experiments have shown that it is also successful in killing Covid-19, proving its use in hospitals, homes and office spaces.

How Long Does a Philips Ultra-Efficient LED Lamp Last?

A Philips UV lamp is known to last up to 9000 hours before they need replacing. This ranges between 6 and 12 months, depending on how often you use it and the average lifespan quoted by the manufacturer. Many UV systems are now designed with a controller, indicating when you should replace a UV lamp. 

Philips is a high-quality brand that produces durable and reliable UV lamps, meaning the products they manufacture are likely to last longer. However, it’s still important to replace your Philips lamp after the recommended timeframe, as it will become less effective.

Philips lamps themselves should not be cleaned, instead, you should replace them every 6 to 12 months depending on use. If your lamp is fitted with a quartz sleeve, you should try and clean these sleeves every 6 to 12 months depending on water quality in your area.

What our customers have to say…

“Ordered a UV lamp at 3.45 pm it arrived in Aberdeenshire next morning. The cost of the item was a fraction of what was on offer elsewhere. A technical query was answered by phone in a friendly and efficient manner.

I will most certainly be using this company again and would recommend it to anyone else.”


“I purchased a UV lamp from ELC. The price was great, delivery was superfast (next day) and the bulb was really well packaged so it arrived safely.
I’ll definitely be ordering from you again, thank you.”
