Xenon Corporation is the world leader in Pulsed UV Light technology for a wide variety of industrial and research applications. They design and manufacturer high performance pulsed UV lamps, curing systems and decontamination/sterilisation systems.
At Xenon Corporation, quality is considered a standard; the light sources components and systems are designed precisely to specification and are fully tested before being shipped. Answers to specific questions are always available and the company is always ready to listen to challenges and work on unique solutions.
Many applications require lamp designs that are matched to the target "footprint". Traditionally, mercury UV
Illustrating the flexibility inherent in being able to choose the shape of a lamp, Xenon's unique spiral lamp design is Xenon's unique spiral lamp design, specifically developed for Optical Disc manufacturing. The spiral lamp design provides better uniformity and enhanced matching of the UV light across the substrate. Spiral shaped pulsed UV lamps meet the need for fast, low heat adhesive bonding of two polycarbonate discs as well as complete curing of thick top-layer coatings used with new formats such as Blu-ray Disc™.Send Enquiry
The Sinteron 2010 offers greater flexibility for sintering conductive Cu and Ag metallic inks, curing thin-film substrates and for solar and surface modifications. It allows for digitally programmable pulse widths, making it extremely flexible and valuable to process development.
A number of attractive features are designed into this stand-alone system. The pulse width is adjustable in increments of 5µs in the range of 100µs to 2,000µs. With total control of the pulse amplitude and pulse width, the optical energy delivered by the system can be precisely controlled. As the pulse profile is very linear at maximum amplitude, a relationship of 1000J/ms can be assumed. The Sinteron 2010 allows connection for either Spiral or Linear Lamp housings. These can provide optical footprints of 19mm × 305mm or 127mm diameter areas.Sinteron 2010 Press Release (74KB)
Pulsed UV curing produces better, deeper, and faster UV curing, with a host of other benefits as well. Xenon Pulsed UV lamps and systems are widely used by process engineers in markets as diverse as medical devices, Optical Storage, packaging and wood processing.
The unique capabilities of pulsed UV curing technology can solve the most demanding UV curing problems. Pulsed UV curing systems offer an extraordinary range of power and cure times. Light sources can be sized and shaped to fit the user's cure area. In a wide range of applications, pulsed light curing exceeds industry requirements and offers benefits that are distinctive.
The pulsed UV light causes formation of Pyrimidone dimers in DNA, resulting in genetic damage to cells and their ultimate destruction. Types of damage induced by pulsed UV light are:
Code 21CFR179.41 issued by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Department of Health and Human Services, approves the use of Pulsed UV light in the production, processing and handling of food.
Xenon Corporation's Pulsed Light system is proven to generate large amounts of Vitamin D in mushrooms, making them more nutritious and offering mushroom growers an edge on the store shelf.
Lamps work in just seconds — not the minutes required by continuous light systems. You save energy, reduce handling time and keep your processing line moving. Xenon's Pulsed Light is the closest thing to real sunlight.
The Dole Company, a leading researcher in the field of food enhancement, has installed a pulsed light system into the manufacturing processes in their mushroom plants to enhance the natural Vitamin D properties of their food product. More research is underway at Dole and other major food producers to find new ways to use light for natural food enhancement, and Xenon, with its pulsed light technology, is working with these industries.Research Paper on Vitamin D from the Australian Mushroom Growers Association (1.04MB)
