TrojanUV High-output Amalgam Lamps

Performance of your TrojanUV system is independently validated and is guaranteed for life – when you use Genuine TrojanUV high output amalgam lamps.

Your TrojanUV system was designed for End of Lamp Life (EOLL) – meaning the number of UV lamps installed at your plant was carefully selected to ensure the required UV dose gets delivered throughout the lamp’s entire lifespan of 12,000 hours (1 year = 8,760 hours).

If non-TrojanUV (non-Genuine) lamps are installed in your system, disinfection performance and permit compliance are at risk (see Figure 1).

Figure 1: TrojanUV vs. Non-Genuine Amalgam Lamps.
Chart Legend
1. Your TrojanUV system is designed for a high EOLL
2. Even when new, non-Genuine lamps have lower levels of output
3. Even if non-Genuine lamps continue to turn on after 1 year, the UV output is so low, disinfection is severely at risk
4. UV output measured while lamps are dimmed reveals further inefficiencies in non-Genuine lamps
5. Additional power is needed to try to deliver the required UV dose using non-Genuine lamps

Total Cost Savings

How much do non-genuine lamps really cost?

A chart comparing lamp costs, O&M costs and fines associated with using non-genuine lamps
Use of Non-Genuine lamps will void safety certifications (UL, CSA etc.) and damage other system components such as connectors, lamp plugs and ballasts leading to even higher O&M costs and increased maintenance.

The Bottom Line 

Non-Genuine Lamps 

Actual disinfection performance and long-term compatibility are unknown, unpredictable, risky, potentially dangerous and ultimately more expensive. 

Genuine TrojanUV Lamps 

Ensure disinfection and maintain your warranties and Lifetime Performance Guarantee. Operate you UV systems as engineered/designed and maintain specified UV dose.
