    Meeting your specialist lighting needs


    Special Lighting

    Light can make a difference in your world –that’s why we’re always developing products that help you work and live better.

    UV-C disinfection


    Bacteria and viruses that cause common infections can live in water and air, as well as on surfaces - even after normal cleaning. Philips UV-C lamp systems have the power to neutralize these harmful micro-organisms.


    Our UV-C lamps disinfect surfaces and objects in a wide variety of settings. These include hospitals, schools, offices, factories, retail outlets and the food and beverage industry, as well as modes of transport like aircraft, buses and trains.


    Philips UV-C lamps also be used to disinfect air in a room and keep HVAC systems clean. They work in upper air systems that disinfect passing air, open UV-C systems or robots that disinfect rooms and locations overnight or while rooms are not being used, as well as in air conditioning systems.


    For water purification, Philips UV-C lamps can be applied in drinking and waste water treatment in residential, industrial and municipal applications. They can also be used to disinfect water in swimming pools, jacuzzis and fish ponds.

    Insect trap

    Every year insects, pests and flies present a major threat to the food and beverage industry. One of the most effective ways to eliminate the problem is by attracting them to an electronic fly killer. But the power of that attraction is mainly defined by the lamps inside the fly killer and it is important to realize that not all lamps are the same.



    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 lamps have a precise and unique spectral distribution making them suitable for Phototherapy systems. 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.

    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.
