UV Quartz Flash Lamps
Quartz Flash tubes are known to have several different characteristics, when compared to glass or Borosilicate;
Clear-Fused-Quartz (CFQ) Flash lamps are usually made manually, since they have a much higher fusion temperature.
That is the reason they are also sturdier and can whithstand higher operation temperatures,
But at the same time results in higher manufacturing costs.
The Quartz envelope allows higher Explosion Energy, and in many cases will benefit to a longer lamp lifespan.
As a result, a higher Current Density is possible, which helps reducing the lamp's physical dimensions for a given application.
Depending on applications, sometimes UV spectrum output is needed.
Unlike glass, that blocks some of the UV spectrum and will transmit some UVA and UVB spectrum,
the Quartz made envelope will transmit a wider UV spectrum including UVA, UVB and UVC down to about 220-240nm.
UV spectrum output is essential for applications such as:
•Ultraviolet germicidal irradiation •UV Photography •Wet plate photography •UV Curing ink/coatings/adhesives
Most of High grade Xenon Flashlamps are made of Quartz, for both air-forced and water cooling methods.

Special Dual arc design allows firing two consecutive flashes by the same device. Alternatively, when the whole lamp is used, the benefit is having 2 shorter arcs firing in parallel, offering lower impedance, brighter and shorter flash durations.
