Amalgam lamp or high-pressure sodium lamp is a term uv ballast with higher UVC output and temperature which carries 3 modes of operation; no current flow while lamp is extinguished, operating with liquid amalgam within the tube is actually all amalgam evaporated. Amalgam lamp can be employed in disinfection, oxidation and photochemical processes. Amalgam lamp called monochromatic because 85% of the spectral output are at 254nm.

Unlike normal germicidal lamp, amalgam lamp doesn’t contain only mercury: from the lamp we have a solid amalgam spot down the axis with the quartz. This type of mercury is bound within a mixture with Bismuth and Indium. Amalgam sport, rather than liquid mercury, adapts the lamp behavior by 50 % ways.With that said, this cannot suffice for commonsense or remedial trial & error skills. Often when I stumbled on a UV Sterilizer the spot that the replacement bulb would not work.I would utilize a second bulb, and when this bulb failed, that it was rather obvious I needed to look into what stands out as the problem together with the UV itself, not the lamp/bulb.

So far the Coast Guard has resisted this call, breaking using the IMO's testing methodology and which makes it harder for some firms to realize certification. In December, Captain J.W. Mauger on the agency's Marine Safety Center informed Trojan Marinex and three other manufacturers that "the design dosage of UV-irradiation in your metabolism causes damage which prevents cell replication, but won't otherwise eliminating the target organisms during treatment . . . We are alert to other ballast water treatment systems, including one that uses UV-irradiation, that are undergoing evaluation with all the required tests [for mortality]. As such, look for that the required tests [based on mortality rates] are applicable."

Recent research by John Cullen with good quality uv light ballasts, a professor inside Department of Oceanography at Dalhousie University, demonstrates that testing of reproductive viability is often a better approach to evaluate a system's capability. “When we began our research, the MPN means for counting viable cells in natural phytoplankton communities experienced a bad reputation, primarily because it absolutely was thought that many, or else most type of phytoplankton cannot be cultured and therefore would not be counted while using MPN method,” he told Water Canada. “But as we carefully reviewed the scientific literature on MPN in the last 60-plus years, we realized how the method was a lesser amount of prone to error than ever thought.”
