The 172nm Excimer lamp comes custom built with an available custom designed power supply. The power, length and diameter of the lamp can be modified to fit present equipment or designed specifically for new equipment.
Ushio reports that chemical bonds that cannot be broken using standard UV lamps can be dissolved using the VUV 172 nm wavelength. Ushio offers a range of lamp lengths and outputs, from 55 mm and 9W to 2200mm and 4kW.
“The wavelength is short, so you can crack the molecules,” said Andreas Schafert, technical sales manager. “It activates what is required, and cleans the rest out.”
