Combination Longwave (365nm) & Shortwave (254nm) Mini UV Lamp
This Mini Combination Longwave/Shortwave UV Lamp is lightweight, great for office or field inspections, and has a nylon strap for easy handling. The combination lamp uses a multiband split-tube for shortwave (254nm) and longwave (365nm) UV in one unit. Runs on 4 "AA" Batteries, not included. Metal shield slides to allow for shortwave only, longwave only, or run both at the same time.
Dimensions: 6.25"L x 1"W x 2.5"H
Ultraviolet light is electromagnetic radiation in the part of the spectrum between x-rays and visible light, approximately 180nm to 400nm. It differs from light only that its wavelengths are to short to be seen by the human eye.
UV-A, or long wave radiation, is 315nm and above. UV-B, or midrange radiation, is 280nm-315nm. UV-C, or short wave radiation, is 280nm and below.
When UV radiation falls upon phosphors, it causes the phosphors to emit specific radiation. This phenomenon is known as fluorescence. In some material, the fluorescence lingers on and slowly disappears after the UV source is removed. This phenomenon is known as phosphorescence (Glow-in-the-Dark). Shortwave UV is harmful to the eyes or skin. Proper protection must be worn when operating a lamp with Shortwave UV. Alternately, longwave UV is safe for everyday use.
