My Salon Suggest: I want to get you the best I/C lamp for you and your customers. If you call in with the sticker information off your unit and the lamp you have in your units now, I guarantee I will get you an I/C lamp that you will love.

My Favorite Lamps: The Phoenix Extreme is a rockin’ tanning lamp that deliveries a dark, rich tan. The bonus, it’s a 10-minute lamp with a rated life hour from 800 to 1000 hours. It’s a very profitable lamp for salons and great for customers with a strapped time schedule.

Replacement Lamp Compatibility must be within 10% (+ or-) of the UV output of the original lamp that came with your unit to be considered “compatible”. Interlectric tanning lamps are compatible with over 250 lamps in the industry and are registered as equivalent in the compliance with the Federal Performance Standard 21CFR 1040.20. A compatibility list is included with every case of your lamps and is honored by inspectors across the country.

Tanning Unit Recertification

Interlectric Corporation is registered with the FDA to perform recertification of your tanning units. Recertification allows your tanning unit to compete with new units, including those using high UVB lamps, yet still be in compliance with Federal regulations. If the bulbs in your unit are not specified, you can have the unit recertified and receive new labeling. With the aid of our qualified staff, you may recertify your unit for the lamp of you choice. Please call us toll-free at 1-800-722-2184 to request recertification or more information.

Lamp Maintenance:

  • Heat is the greatest enemy of your lamp performance. Try to keep room temperatures around 66? Fahrenheit. Salons are not beaches! Remind your customers that heat does not contribute to the tanning process.
  • Flickering may indicate a need for new starters. Starters give an extra burst of current upon activation, reducing wear. Note that used lamps will start more readily than new ones.
  • It is important to clean each unit thoroughly at least once a month to maintain maximum UV output.
  • Be sure that the sockets are clean and that the lamps fit snugly. If sockets have loose contacts or worn springs, replace them. Worn sockets can cause premature darkening of the tanning lamp arcing and can shorten lamp life.
  • Check acrylics for cracks and yellowing. An old shield can block up to 70% of the UVB rays. Replacement acrylics can be purchased through your Interlectric sales representative.

The Tanning Process:

  • UVA – These are the “tanning rays” that have the longest wavelength. They penetrate the skin the deepest.
  • UVB – These are the shorter wavelength rays that produce melanin which starts the tanning process.
  • Oxygen – Found in the bloodstream, it is brought to the surface of the skin and allows for the oxidation or browning of the skin. Without oxygen, the tanning process could not take place.
