The clear glass goes next to the lamp, to help absorb some of the heat, then the blue filter glass.

dear chippp you must mess with the filter glass to clean it,i have found that the manufacturers dont seem to know any more about the beds than does my 9 year old son.third party parts suppliers seem to have more info on the beds than does any manufacturer.is there a difference between blue filter glass if there is you might want to tell all the suppliers what type is for which beds ,and please explain how a 400 watt facial in bed A is different than the same lamp and ballasts in bed B and like i said i have seen the filter glass in both ways on the same bed and on different beds, there has to be a standard.the reason we are on this board is because we cannot get answers in the correct channels.

The filters must be replaced to work correctly.If not you are doing damage to your clients faces.Please replace the filters often enought. http://www.google.com/search?q=cache:www.amexport.com/vistalite.htm+uva+suntanning+lamps&hl=en

Chippp: You are misinformed. Filterglass does not degrade. It is impervious to everything except dropping it. Anyone trying to sell you replacement filterglass with this line is trying to RIP YOU OFF!!!!

The clear glass is the UVB filter. This is placed next to the lamp. The blue glass helps to reduce the heat that the client feels from the lamp. There are also systems with only blue glass or only translucent glass to handle the UVB filtering. (has a krinkled finish to it like privacy glass in a bathroom window.) Do not remove any filters from the system. This can be very dangerous to the tanner. The lamp emits UVC that the filter removes. UVC is the germicidal ray of the tanning spectrum. UVC kills all living cell instantly! This is used for sterilization and purification purposes only and should never be emited by the tanning unit. The unit should be operated with all the filters it was supplied with. [This message has been edited by Brian Oshman (edited 05-03-2001).]

I think what Brian meant to say was the blue glass is the UV filter and the clear glass absorbs the heat. http://www.amexport.com/vistalite.htm

No, that is not what I said. In a two piece system the clear glass is the UVB filter.
