Alpha-Cure is a specialist manufacturer of ultraviolet (UV) curing and metal halide lamps, committed to delivering industry advancements in UV lamp design and technology. Every Alpha-Cure lamp is individually handmade and developed using the most advanced components and cutting-edge manufacturing processes. Alpha -Cure product range includes bespoke lamp designs to meet customers’ exact requirements with a wide selection of ceramic and metal end caps and lead terminations
THE 4.0 LAMP
The 4.0 Lamp is a revolutionary quad electrode curing lamp with longer operating life & reduced energy consumption
The 4.0 Lamp boasts four electrodes in place of the usual two found in mercury discharge lamps, with the second set of smaller electrodes enabling the lamp to remain lit at a considerably lower power level when it isn’t in use. This helps to preserve the electrodes which are steadily degraded when repeatedly lit and prevents the ‘sputtering’ which can occur, both of which means the lamp will have a longer operating lifetime.
Alpha cure offers the widest range of original and replacement UV Lamp/IR lamps for all type of UV system. UV lamps range in power from 80 watts per cm up to 550 watts per cm, and up to 4 metres in arc length. Together with a selection of ceramic and metal end caps and varying lead terminations, lamps can be altered to suit requirements.
Alpha-Cure supply infrared lamps for many different applications and industrial processes, as well as for the more commonly seen heating of indoor and outdoor spaces in domestic and commercial premises.
Applications of IR include:
Curing and bonding
Alpha Cure High efficiency UV Lamps for Narrow/ Mid & Wide web Flexo press for Labels & Flexible packaging Segment
Alpha-Cure supplies many types of UV system reflectors
Dichroic-These reflect visible light and allow infrared radiation to pass through. This type reduces heating of illuminated objects since less infrared radiation is present in the light beam. (However, dichroic reflectors must only be used in compatible fixtures that can dissipate the heat.
Dichroic reflectors must not be fitted to recessed or enclosed luminaires with the IEC 60598 No Cool Beam symbol.)
Aluminium-These can be used for low wattage applications in free air or forced air-cooling of UV lamps in an end cooled reflector assembly, or centre cooled reflector assembly. These are commonly used for focusing ultraviolet light from a medium pressure mercury vapour lamp, UV curing lamp or metal halide lamp as metal halide reflectors.
UV Coated Quartz-Quartz material is stronger than glass and therefore can be used at temperatures up to 1050 °C and has a high transmission from 230nm to 3000nm. This makes it useful for most UV applications.
