The quartz material used in quartz sleeves are a 100% fused silica which lend to the sleeve’s high transmittance. A high transmittance is important as the UV light must travel through the sleeve to get to the water. The quartz sleeve keeps the UV lamp from shorting out and maintains the lamp’s ideal operating temperature of 40 Degrees Celsius. Mineral build-up hinders the lamp’s effectiveness.
