Pulsed Light systems are widely used in sanitization applications in the cosmetic, food, and medical industries. They offer high peak power that has been shown to completely eradicate microorganisms and provide a higher rate of sanitization than continuous mercury UV exposure. In addition, Pulsed Light is environmentally benign since it does not create or use volatile organic compounds (VOCs) or create suspended airborne particulates.
How it Works
Pulsed UV light causes formation of Pyrimidone dimers in DNA, resuting in genetic damage to cells and their ultimate destruction. Types of damage induced by pulsed UV light are: (a) photolysis; (b) loss of colony-forming ability (death); (c) inability to support phage growth (enzyme inactivation) and (d) destruction of nucleic acid.
Pulsed Light Benefits
Advantages of our solutions include fast processing, little or no product temperature buildup, process flexibility, freedom from toxic lamp materials, penetration of plastic packages, and ease of meeting special lamp configuration requirements.

Pulsed Light is high-energy light delivered in incredibly short periods of time. It’s a simple concept with profound ramifications, because it means we can produce extremely large amounts of energy, up to 1 megawatt, while generating very little heat. As a result, Pulsed Light can be used in a wide range of applications where high energy is needed, but high temperatures would damage the materials involved. This has led to breakthroughs in many industries, from optical discs to semiconductors.
