What is Amalgam Technology?
The amalgam is a mercury alloy which in many cases,provides significant performance benefits over the traditional liquid and pelletdosed mercury product.
Lamps with amalgam typically have "rounded" tubes rather than the "dimpled" tubes of traditional mercury lamps.
Amalgam Lamps Are Ideal for High-temperature
Appliancations and Enclosed Fixtures
Excellent light output over a wider range of temperatures.
More than 90% of maximum light output between 23°F and 150°F.
Warm-up Characteristics of Amalgam Lamps
This product will start quickly generating 80% of the total lumens within 110 seconds.Warm-up time to full brightness curve is provided.
Longer warm-up time may limit use in frequently-switched applications.
During the warm-up period,one tube may appear darker than the others. This temporary condition will vanish once the warm-up cycle is complete.
The Light Output of Amalgam Lamps is Incandescent of Operating Position
