S2400C Replacement Lamp

The S2400C replacement lamp is designed to be used in the S2400C UV System. Its ultraviolet output is 48 Watts and its rated effective life is 10,000 hrs (roughly 14 months of continuous use).

Why Use UV?

Ultraviolet radiation is lethal to virtually all bacteria, viruses, and fungi. This short wave radiation produced by germicidal ultraviolet lamps can quickly destroy these harmful substances and microorganisms in water. Because no chemicals are added, there is no danger of overdosing or contaminating the water through this process. No unwanted tastes or scents are present after purification and the water is ready for use immediately after it leaves the purifier.

How does it work?

1. Water enters one end of the purifier and flows through the space between the quartz-sleeved germicidal ultraviolet lamp and the chamber wall.

2. A wiper system stirs the water to guarantee that the microorganisms within are evenly exposed to ultraviolet rays.

3. The exits from the other end of the purifier ready for use.


A translucent sight port allows you to verify that the germicidal lamp is operating correctly. When running, its glow will be visible through the port. 


Maintenance & Installation

In the event that your Sanitron system requires maintenance or the replacement of key components, they are designed to disassemble completely without the use of special tools or fixtures. The end caps are specially designed so that they can be removed by hand and new lamps or sleeves can be installed in a matter of minutes. It is recommended that the lamp be replaced after 10,000 hours of operation (about 14 months of continuous use). A dual-action assembly allows periodic cleaning of the sleeve without the need to disassemble the product or interrupt its operation.


Germicidal Lamp Details

Approximately 95% of the ultraviolet energy emitted from the germicidal lamps is at 254 nanometers, the region of germicidal effectiveness most destructive to bacteria, mold, and virus.



Caution: Exposure to direct or reflected germicidal ultraviolet rays will cause painful irritation to the eyes and reddening of the skin. Those who may be subject to this exposure should wear a suitable face shield, gloves, and protective clothing.

TOC Reduction Ozone Reduction


The 254 nm frequency used in germicidal lamps is destructive to ozone and can be used to safely revert ozone back to oxygen in water. These UV lights will provide 90-95% ozone destruction in water, however, the rated flow-rate for ozone destruction is x3 times lower than for germicidal use. Flow rate capacities listed for each UV light are shown for germicidal use; divide these by 3 to calculate proper dosage rate for ozone destruction in water. 

At the 185 nm frequency, ultraviolet lamps can be used to generate ozone in a gas stream. In an ozone generator, a UV lamp can be used to produce ozone from the oxygen in air. While ultraviolet light does not produce very high concentrations of ozone, it can be a valuable option when lower concentrations of ozone are necessary.
