Replacement Lamps / Bulbs for the DWS/SE models ultraviolet water purifiers from Aqua Treatment Services. Lamp replacement is recommended every 10,000 hours of operation (approximately 14 months of continuous service).
Bare skin contact with the quartz envelope must be avoided. Compounds from the skin when heated on lamps operating at 600 to 850˚c will form permanent etching (devitrification) on the quartz surface, decreasing UV energy transmission. A contaminated lamp eventually will overheat causing premature failure. Alcohol wipes and rubber gloves are included with every purchase of a quartz sleeve or lamp. NOTE: In case of contact with bare skin, decontaminate lamp with alcohol wipe before returning to use.
