It starts with the glass. A high-quality glass allows more of the energy created inside the lamp to get out and do its “work” – giving your customer a tan. When measuring glass quality, the critical element is referred to as “transmission” and relates to the purity of the materials used to manufacture the glass tubes. Low transmission results in lower UV output; a high transmission level results in higher output. If the glass purity is too great, unwanted wavelengths of the UV spectrum – like UVC – can contaminate the output. Not too opaque, not too pure … the glass needs to be “just right.”
