Fluorescent Tube (T8)

T8 fluorescent lamp is the first-generation fluorescent tube products, which is still the most popular fluorescent tube model in the market. It uses halogen or tri-phosphor powder coated glass tube of diameter Ф26mm. The most popular models of T8 fluorescent tube includes 18W, 30W, 36W and 54W which are of length 0.6m, 0.9m, 1.2m and 1.5m respectively. It uses bipin aluminum end cap of G13 base, while the thicker glass body allow it to have more even light-emitting area and so as more diffused lighting. T8 fluorescent tubes works with most magnetic ballast and electronic ballast in the market. In EU, elder facilities usually use magnetic ballast powered fixture which also uses starter, while new buildings are more likely to use electronic ballast. In US market, majority of magnetic ballast are already replaced with electronic ballast. 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 can be both magnetic or 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 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.
