Measuring UV intensity
An Ultravoilet light is divided into three bands UVA, UVB, UVC.
Uses: Curing Lamps in the Curing Industries.
Uses : In Health care Physiotherapy Lamps
Uses: In Hospitals Germicidal Lamps
There are three fundamental parameter for UV m,measurement. These are wavelength, energy density and irradiance.
Wavelength: To measure the wavelength we require a Spectroradiometer )( They can measure individual peaks )or spectrometer .
Irradiance: Intensity is the output energy of UV source. The amount of UV falling on a surface is called irradiance. A cm2 is tha area which is used to track the UV from all angles and is determined by direct measurements. It is measured in Watt/cm2 or mW/cm2 .
UV Energy Density:It is exposure cof UV light with time factor. That is 1 watt for 1 sec equal 1 joule. It is measured in Joules /cm2 or mJ/cm2 .
Now it is very important to understand your UV measuring instrument…….
It will help you and the customers to better understand the readings.
What factors cause
1 Potential confusion
2 Measurement Errors
Some factors which influence Irradiance Measurements are
UVB or UVA light sources irradiation intensity can be detected by the UV lamp intensity meter. Multi-probe UV measurement device that can be equipped with probes: No matter you want to test the UVA,UVB or UVC band. You can select a suitable probe.
