XX-Series UV Bench Lamp

Bench XX-Series UV Lamps offer a complete selection of models - fixture only or with a

choice of the following wavelengths: longwave, BLB (black light blue), shortwave or midrange. Wavelength 352nm BLB tubes are available for the XX-15 fixture.

Main features

  • Various fixture sizes, watts and wavelengths are available
  • Lamps include holes on each end of the fixture for hanging or mounting the lamp
  • Lamps are manufactured with a durable aluminum housing and powder paint scratch resistant finish
  • Shortwave lamps can be used in an upward facing position for purifying air or in a downward position for sanitizing work surfaces
  • 254nm UV can kill up to 99% of organisms from bacteria, yeast, mold spores, germs and viruses
  • Shortwave UV (254nm) offer reliable and effective tool for sterilization and sanitation applications in hospitals, laboratories, pharmaceutical companies and clinics.
  • UV intensity can be increased by bringing the lamp closer to object being sterilized
  • The 352nm BLB tubes can be used in inspection and testing applications

Hang the fixture for overhead UV illumination for growth experiments and sterilization (XX-15S shown)


When using shortwave UV, when you know the micro-organism to be destroyed and how much energy is required, divide the energy required (in units mW/cm2 at 12 inches for the XX-15S) to calculate the total exposure time required to do the job.

    The XX-15 Lamp connects to the Exposure Stand for UV fluorescence experimentation.

    UV Protection

    UV-C's effects on the human body vary depending on length of exposure, but can cause painful burns on the skin. It can also cause temporary damage to the cornea if observed directly. Aside from these threats, UV-C is a known carcinogen for human skin. We strongly suggest using protective eyewear, face shields, and gloves when working with UV-C. 

    Optional Radiometer

    Measurement of lamp irradiance is the most effective way to monitor the useful life of any UV light source. The UVX Radiometer is useful for measuring UV intensity to ensure the desired UV dosage is being accurately applied. Useful for germicidal UV-C as well as UV curing applications.
