What is the storage time for deuterium lamps?

Deuterium lamps are a common light source for UV detectors such as variable wavelength, multiple wavelength and diode array detectors. The performance of these lamps diminishes over time. KNAUER detectors compensate automatically for the gradual loss in performance, however, after 2000 hours working time, or 5 years storage time, these lamps need to be replaced.

We separate molecules and unite people.

Based in Berlin, KNAUER is a medium-sized company that has been serving the sciences since 1962. We are a developer and manufacturer of scientific instruments of superior quality for liquid chromatography (LC), liquid dosing and other laboratory tasks. The product range includes systems, engineering solutions and components for:
