Packaged Equipment Kit - PEK High Output UV germicidal fixtures are designed specifically for fan coils, Packaged Terminal Air Conditioners (PTAC), classroom unit ventilators, packaged split systems and other similar room unit systems. The PEK
UV systems use practical and effective UVC technology to overcome the Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) challenge other small in-room packaging equipment hasn’t been able to solve because they’re often equipped with low-efficiency filters that cannot effectively capture infectious
microbiological contaminants or mold. In addition, because of space and airflow limitation, many of these other units cannot be retrofitted with high-efficiency filtration.
Applications: PEK fixtures feature UV
lamps that illuminate cooling units with high-output (800mA) UVC energy that
eliminates surface contaminants (mold, bacteria or most any microbial biofilm)
preserving the energy efficiency of the AC unit and reduce infectious airborne
microbial contaminants, bringing improved IAQ to hotel/motel rooms, dormitories,
offices, patient rooms, classrooms and other similar rooms.
Mold Growth Before UV Installation
PEK UV Fixtures utilize high-output
“green” UV lamps (≤ 8 mg of mercury; 2-year guarantee) with five-year ballasts
(non-prorated 5-year warranty) into a convenient kit that delivers the best and
longest-lasting UVC performance available. Independent tests show that the PEK
fixtures deliver greater output than any other ultraviolet devices under HVAC
operating conditions (45° F at 400 fpm air velocity), and the increased UVC
output of our lamps provides the most reliable germicidal performance and
longest service life.
Each PEK UV system contains one “green” UVC Lamp,
one 5-year ballast, and all necessary hardware components to retrofit the
room unit with UVC, including wire, holding clips, mounting screws
and wire ties - the space-saving, snap-in design fits all major brands.
The cell lamps come in lengths of 14, 16, 20, 24, 36, 48 and 60 inches to meet
different size requirements. The correct quantity of kits and/or lamp lengths
must be selected to irradiate the entire coil.

Features and Benefits of
PEK UV systems installation:
SPECIFICATIONS: The PEK UV lamp and power
supply are factory assembled and tested in the USA prior to shipment. Each kit
shall consist of a power supply, lamp cord and high-output lamp.
BALLAST: The solid-state ballast (furnished with this kit) is a Class P rapid
start with a power factor minimum of .95. It is available as a 120, 208, 230 or
277 VAC 50/60 Hz, single phase, and is designed to maximize photon production in
air temperatures of 35-170° F. Minimum ballast start temperature is – 20 degrees
F. Ballasts have a RFI - EMI rating as defined by FCC part 18A for
industrial/commercial applications in regards to suppression. Ballast is UL
listed for use in HVAC applications.
UV LAMPS: PEK series ultraviolet lamps are high-output (800mA), T5 diameter, and
constructed from hard glass tubing for superior UV transmittance. Lamps are
“green,” containing ≤ 8mg of mercury and they produce no ozone. Lamps shall
retain, at a minimum, 80% of initial output after 2 years (17,000 hours) of use.
The UV lamps are sealed for moisture protection with a water-tight connection.
Electrodes are designed to maximize plasma convection and stability for superior
lamp performance and life. The UV lamps are rated to produce 11.7 µW/cm˛ per
linear inch of lamp arc length at a distance of one meter in a 45° F and 400 fpm
KIT COMPONENTS: The wire shall be UV-resistant and rated for installation in an
HVAC system. The spring mounting clips shall be provided with mounting screws
and custom designed to hold the UVC Lamp without damaging the tube during
installation or replacement.
INDEPENDENT TESTING: Units are tested by an independent test laboratory in
accordance with the general provisions of IES Lighting Handbook, 1981
Applications Volume, and provide output per inch of glass of not less than 11.7
µW/cm˛ at 1 meter in a 400 fpm airstream of 45° F.
