An amalgam lamp can produce an output of 200 to 1000 watts, of which a full 1/3 is usable 254 nm UVC energy. Amalgam lamps do offer the ability to downsize a system while maintaining maximum speed and efficiency for UV curing.
Keep in mind that Low Pressure Amalgam lamps (254 nm UVC) are not the best technology for all ink curing applications. Many factors play a role. But, if your application performance properties match up with the chart criteria below, then it may be right for you.
