Fluorescent Tube (T6)

T6 fluorescent lamp is a fluorescent tube used to upgrade the T8 counterparts. As we know smaller tube diameter could enhance lighting efficacy, T6 tube are good direct replacement of T8 tube. T6 better choice compare to T5 in direct replacement, because T6 and T8 both uses G13 end caps while T5 uses G5 end caps, which means that no fixture modification is necessary if T6 is used to replace T8 fixture which standard T5 tube of G5 base could not achieve. T6 uses slim triphosphorous powder coated glass tube of diameter Ф18mm. This can enhance lighting efficacy of the product while at the same time lower material cost and spacing used in tube installation. Same as T8 high efficiency fluorescent tube, use bipin aluminum end cap of G13 base. It works with most electronic ballast in the market. It uses solid state mercury (amalgam), which make it more safe, stable and environmentally friendly product.

T6 better choice compare to T5 in direct replacement, because T6 and T8 both uses G13 end caps while T5 uses G5 end caps, which means that no fixture modification is necessary if T6 is used to replace T8 fixture which standard T5 tube of G5 base could not achieve.

Same as T8 high efficiency fluorescent tube, use bipin aluminum end cap of G13 base. It works with most electronic ballast in the market. It uses solid state mercury (amalgam), which make it more safe, stable and environmentally friendly product.

Fluorescent lamp is light on base on low-pressure mercury vapor discharge mechanism, which it is mandatory to work with an external device, which is usually electronic ballast. When power is connected, high temperature is created at the inner filament at both end of the tube. The high temperature vaporize mercury inside the tube to form a complete circuit inside the tube, which ionized mercury will hit on phosphorus power to create a visible spectrum.

Fluorescent lamp is a good replacement product of incandescent lamp. The first advantage of fluorescent lamp towards incandescent is the tubular shape of fluorescent lamp, which allows large area lighting with more diffused and even lighting distribution or reduced glare. Besides, it has higher efficiency of 50-100lm/w, which is 5-15lm/w higher than incandescent lamp. Fluorescent lamp also produces less heat which is about one-fifth the heat of equivalent incandescent lamps. This greatly reduces the size, cost, and energy consumption devoted to air conditioning for office buildings that would typically have many lights and few windows.

The body of fluorescent lamp is made of powder coated glass fitted with aluminum/plastic end caps. For powder, there are 2 options, halogen powder and tri- phosphor. Fluorescent tube has 2 choice of powder coating. If you prefer a higher color rendering (CRI), tri-phosphor powder could be used for Ra80. If more economical model is preferred, halo phosphor of RA70 could be used. Both powders allow CCT customization ranging from 2700 – 6500K, which extra high CCT up to 8000-12000K is also possible. For decorative purpose or aqua plant purpose, we also have suitable powder which create color lights (Red, Green, Blue, Yellow) or plant growing spectrum. Compare with halogen power, tri-phosphor is higher quality, longer lifetime, higher efficiency and CRI. Halogen efficacy is usually 60-70lm/W, while tri-phosphor can make more than 80lm/W. Fluorescent lamp can reach 360° beam angle, the light is soft and not dazzle, more comfortable light than incandescent lamp and led lamps.

Fluorescent lamp work in the present of a ballast, which could be a magnetic ballast or an electronic ballast. Typically, T4, T5, T6 fluorescent lamp use electronic ballast (unless the tube power is low, magnetic ballast could be use). While T8, T10 and T12 fluorescent lamp can work with both electronic ballast and magnetic ballast. Magnetic ballast needs to be used together with a start to trigger initiation high voltage for the tube the light on. A fluorescent lamp on average, last 10 to 20 times longer to equivalent incandescent lamp when operated several hours a day. Standard lifetime of fluorescent lamps is 8,000 to 12,000 hours.

Fluorescent lamp has a wide range of applications. For example, they could be use in office or resident building in appropriate linear metallic fixture with ballast. They could also be used with reflector fixture in supermarkets and shopping malls to enhance appearance of merchandizes. They could also be use in wide range of projects including hotels, restaurants, schools, hospitals which are usually in metallic framed lamp fixture. In parking lots or garages, tri-proof fixture fitted with fluorescent lamps are common outdoor lighting. There are also special DC modeled fluorescent tube which are used in machinery, airplanes as well as vehicles.
