Consistent UV curing requires periodic monitoring of UV intensity or dose. The ACCU-CAL™ 150 radiometer is simple to operate and offers repeatable measurement of UV light. The ACCU-CAL 150 can measure UV light up to 10 W/cm2 emitted from stationary flood curing lamps or lamps used in conveyorized processes. This radiometer can be used to determine intensity (measured in mW/cm2) or total energy as derived from intensity and exposure time (measured in mJ/cm2). The ACCU-CAL 150 radiometer greatly simplifies both validating and monitoring a UV curing process.
Two Reasons to Use a UV Radiometer
- Validating and Maintaining a Light-Curing Process - A radiometer provides a quantifiable measurement that verifies if the UV curing process is operating within the qualified parameters. Since all UV bulbs degrade over time, the radiometer will reveal the optimal time for bulb replacement in the UV curing device. Radiometers provide the same monitoring control for light-curing processes that thermometers provide for thermal processes.
- Measuring Transmission Rates Through Substrates - A radiometer can be used to measure the light transmission rates of various wavelengths through substrates that absorb UV and/or visible light. To assure an effective curing process it is critical to measure the light intensity reaching the resin below the intervening substrate.
