TripleBright 3

Three times the power. Three times the brightness. Three times the quality.




Both the TripleBright 3 and the Dual TripleBright 3 have patented circuits (US Patents 6,479,947 and 6,838,837) that allow the bulbs (lamps) to be cycled “on” and “off” millions of times without harming those bulbs.

These UV lights have a special feature that allows the cover to be easily opened and removed for maintenance without having to remove the light from the display.

These powerful ultraviolet display lights from UV SYSTEMS, Inc. are great news for mineral museums and serious fluorescent mineral collectors.

For museum curators and individuals with large mineral collections who truly value quality, UV SYSTEMS, Inc. provides the TripleBright 3 and the Dual TripleBright 3 ultraviolet lights.
