UV irradiators consist of a heavy-duty housing supporting
a linear extruded heatsink and a reflective insert, which
acts as an enhanced reflectance liner. The UV reflective
material is in intimate contact with the heatsink extrusion
allowing it to resist the heat-related yellowing that
plague other non-heatsink based designs. In the event
that the reflector sheet becomes damaged, it is easily
replaced, minimizing down time.
Our UV dryer reflectors are designed specifically for
each ultraviolet lamp size. They maintain optimum arc lamp
operation temperatures on the medium pressure mercury vapor
lamp envelope, end seals, and end-fittings. The irradiator
forms an air-cooling plenum, cooling the ultravilolet lamp
end-fittings and not over cooling the UV curing lamp envelope.
In addition to lamp cooling (these also work with a metal
halide lamp) our Lamp Irradiator Assembly allows for cooling
of the work surface and supporting the lamp above the substrate,
reflecting UV energy in an efficient curing pattern.
Purpose of an irradiator assembly is to
- focus the lamp UV energy optimally
for fast curing
- support the lamp above the substrate,
- maintain proper cooling of the lamp
envelope, capillary, and end-fittings
UV Irradiators (reflector assemblies)
are used in conjunction with other UV components, such
as magnetic ballast, or metal halide ballast and arc lamp,
to form a complete UV curing center providing effective
UV drying of your product. Replacement UV reflector liners
or UV reflector sheets and lamps are also available.
