We also supply a wide range of long-lasting DuraBulb replacement bulbs for UV note checkers and for other UV applications.  Our range of bulbs include:

 

  • DuraBulb UV Note Checker Bulbs - this range of bulbs emit UV light at a peak wavelength of 365nm as recommended by the Bank of England for checking bank notes


  • DuraBulb UV Fly Killer Bulbs - a range of replacement bulbs for UV fly killers. These bulbs emit UV light at a peak wavelength of 368nm which is the optimal wavelength for attracting flies and insects


  • DuraBulb UVC Pond Filter Bulbs / Sterilisation Bulbs - a range of germicidal UVC bulbs.  These bulbs emit UV light at a peak wavelength of 253.7nm which is the optimal UV wavelength for germicidal use. At this wavelength the UV light significantly disrupts DNA base-pairing which rapidly leads to the destruction of micro-organisms and algae. For dis-infection applications it is recommended to replace UVC bulbs at 6 month intervals and for pond filter applications it is recommended to replace UVC bulbs at 12-month intervals. The bulbs will continue to function beyond 12 months but the UV intensity will decrease over time.
