This filter is the OEM (original equipment manufacturer) replacement for your system. The manufacturer of your system recommends that you replace your air filter with the filter specifically designed for it.
The UV425 is the 16" straight OEM replacement UV lamp for Abatement Technologies, Inc.'s CAP500-UV central air purification systems.
The UV425 utilizes UVGI (Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation) technology to actively "kill" bacteria and viruses by destroying their DNA. UVGI is also a part of the spectrum of electromagnetic energy generated by the sun.
Your CAP500-UV includes both visual and audible indicators that monitor the lamp's status:
- Indicates the lamp is operating within an acceptable range.
- Indicated the lamp should be replaced soon.
- Indicates the lamp in inoperable.
An audible 'chirp' begins when the Yellow light appears. The 'chirping' alarm can be shut-off without replacing the lamp.
The UV425 16" high-output UV lamp has a special filament and internal coating that increases performance over the life of the lamp. The manufacturer recommends you change your UV425 UVGI long-life quartz lamp after 9000 hours (1 year) of use under normal operating conditions. For instructions on how to change your air cleaner's UV lamp, please refer to your units Instruction Manual.
This package ships with 4 lamps.
- The UV425 does NOT generate any ozone output. If you own a CAP500-UVP central air purification system that utilizes trivalent oxygen (ozone) technology you will want to purchase the UVP425 replacement lamp.
