Though even if you remove the filter or lens, you still won't get that 
much shortwave UV, because the bulb in those is usually in a glass 
envelope, and glass blocks a lot of the shortwave UV.  That's why tubes 
made for shortwave UV, and the windows on EPROMs, are made of quartz 
rather than normal glass.
