Osram, Like Signify, Is Ramping Up Conventional UV-C Lamps to Fight Covid

It’s working on an LED version, but for now, a 30-year-old mercury tube is getting the call. On the heels of Signify announcing it is cranking up production of ultraviolet-C-band (UV-C) lamps proven to kill the coronavirus in a lab, Osram said that it, too is ramping up output of a similar product, which like Signify’s uses conventional mercury discharge, not LED technology. Osram said Chinese hospitals in Wuhan and Beijing have installed 2000 of the company’s 254-nm (253.7-nm, to be precise) ultraviolet AirZing tube lamps, and that it has supplied about 10,000 to children’s nurseries. While Osram did not rule out eventually using LED technology for UV-C, and told LEDs Magazine that it is working on such a product, its 30-year-old mercury product is now getting the call in the fight against COVID-19. https://www.ledsmagazine.com/
