As well as offering the Philips TUV 55w lamp above, we can also supply equivalent lamps made by Osram and Ledvance.
To run any of the above 55 watt uv lamps, you will have a ballast or control unit in your system. We recommend the Philips PureVOLT ballast which will run the Philips, Osram and Ledvance lamps above.
Another integral part of your uv system is the quartz sleeve which provides a barrier between your lamp and direct contact with the water. The most popular sizes we regularly sell are either 871 or 890mm long. We recommend replacing these after 2 years as the glass can become discoloured and can no longer be cleaned. This will hinder uv-c light transmission and make your uv system not as effective as it should be. All quartz sleeves are supplied with “O” rings. Please see below :
