Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9854525A1] The invention relates to a device comprising a UV lamp (2) which is accommodated in a housing (3) in such a way that UV rays emerge directly or indirectly from an exit (4), and strike a substrate (1) which is to be exposed to the rays. The lamp is air-cooled in a closed circuit, whereby the air enters the housing through an air inlet (6) and leaves the housing again through an air outlet (7). The exit (4) is sealed with a glass plate transparent to UV, so that neither cooling air nor ozone can exit directly from the housing. This also protects the lamp and the reflector surrounding the lamp from being dirtied by the suctioned cooling air.
