  • 1. One or more tanks in your dye heating unit can be allocated to heat the UV formula. An indirect heating unit utilizing heat transfer fluid is strongly recommended (e.g., Phantom Heating System). Any direct heating unit must incorporate stirring action to become suitable for heating the UV formula.
  • 2. Clean lens holder. Lens holder used for UV treatment should not be dipped in other solutions to prevent cross contamination.
