UV Purification


Clean drinking water is essential to our health and wellbeing. Yet in developing nations all over the world, and even in western countries, many public water supplies get contaminated with harmful microorganisms


Philips UV lamp systems have the power to deactivate these microorganisms. Over the past 15 years, we’ve partnered with purification experts to create technology that will give everyone access to clean water and air.


UV lamps for water purification are applied in many applications, including industrial and municipal water treatment, swimming pools, jacuzzi’s and fish ponds.


UV lamps can help medical environments too. Infections originating in hospitals affect up to 10% of patients during their stay. Approximately 20% of these infections are transmitted via contaminated surfaces and air. Disinfection systems incorporating Philips UVC lamps have the power to disinfect air and surfaces.

Digital Cinema


Digital projection is revolutionizing the way people watch movies. Images and colors are more vibrant and lifelike than ever, and 3D films are creating a truly immersive experience.


These cinematic breakthroughs have been made possible due to digital projection lamps. Used worldwide to light movie screens seen by millions of people, Philips technology is creating clear and  crisp images.


Our Digital Cinema lamps are certified and approved for use in Barco, NEC, and Sony projectors, offering unsurpassed quality and reliability. In addition, our technical, sales, and customer support officers bring you best service in the industry. Joining the digital cinema revolution has never been so easy.



Nearly three percent of the world's population is affected by Psoriasis, hugely impacting their daily lives. Phototherapy is an established treatment option that uses those specific wavelengths of light that slow down the production of new skin cells.


Philips UVB Narrowband Phototherapy lamps have a precise and unique spectral distribution. As a result, dermatologists can offer their patients an effective treatment with minimum potential side effects.


More than 400 clinical tests world-wide indicate that the Philips UVB Narrowband lamps are the most effective lamps for treating Psoriasis.

Insect trap    


If your company is in the food and beverage industry, it’s crucial to maintain healthy and safety standards – and safeguard your reputation. That means keeping kitchens and restaurants free of flies and insects. The most effective and hygienic way to do this is with a purpose-built fly killer.


Philips Actinic BL lamps have been specifically designed for the food and beverage industry. They emit the precise wavelengths of UV light that insects are attracted to, drawing them in and eliminating them.


The fixtures provide a high output that is maintained for the whole lifetime of the lamps, ensuring a hygienic and bug-free environment. In addition, their energy-efficient performance and low mercury level makes your workplace more environment-friendly.

Science and Industry    


As a leading lighting company for more than 120 years, we have unrivaled expertise in specialist lamps for science and industry applications. Take our very broad range of halogens, for example. Their distortion-free quartz bulb, precise filament positioning, and Color Rendering Index of 100 make them perfect for mission-critical systems. And then there are our Flexo print TL /R lamps, which have an internal reflector and produce the ideal UVA spectrum for optimal flexographic curing results.


Over the years we have found that professional end users are searching for lamps with a high performance they can rely on, offering them great value for their money. This is exactly what we offer - so you can give your customers exactly what they need. Find out more about our range and their specifications on the next pages.
