The tubes looked u shaped.

Don't be fooLED, T8 IS the worst thing to do to a magnetic T12 fixture.

That's definitely LPS if they have U-shaped tubes.

Any machine is a smoke machine if you operate it wrong enough.

Awesome to see SOX still in use.

Colored Fluorescent's such as F40T12 Red or  Green or Blue are awesome...

Looks like HPS to me...light is to orange and the CRI is not negative like it would be with LPS.

Your mission - should you choose to accept it - is to save unique and rare HID lighting before it's all scrapped.

Sounds like SOX then.
Looks yellow enough to be on my main computer as well.
I did look at it on one other & it looked a bit more orange, so like any pic, color depends on your monitor.
