Vapourtec has launched a second generation LED light source (Gen-2) which increases the range of applications for its continuous flow UV-150 photochemical reactor.
With flow chemistry processes increasingly replacing the batch approach within photochemistry, the rate of innovation and development for UV LEDs continues to grow.
Vapourtec’s Gen-2 LED light source is available at two wavelengths; 365 nm and 385 nm with an input power of ~60 Watts.
It delivers radiant powers of 16 and 18 Watts respectively and an efficiency of 26% and 31%. The company’s previous model of LED at 365 nm (Gen-1) had an efficiency of 5%, giving radiant output of 3 Watts.
Vapourtec managinbg director Duncan Guthrie said: “The use of high power, high efficiency LED light sources delivers a number of significant benefits including improved safety through low voltages and low temperatures, better selectivity due to precise control over the wavelength and higher levels of efficiency.
“By launching the highly efficient Gen-2 LED light source, Vapourtec is continuing to offer the very latest technologies with its products allowing our system users to remain at the cutting edge of scientific research and discovery,” he added.
Vapourtec Ltd is a leading global specialist in the field of flow chemistry.
