A couple of mercury lamps.

From right to left;
A craptacular 250W Chinesium Osram bulb
A very nice belgian made 125W Sylvania bulb
A proper german made 80W standard bulb from Osram
A cute 50W GE Kolorlux bulb from their Tungsram plant (this is about as weak as a 30W incandescent by now)

Nice little line-up...

250 watter from Fo-Shan.

125 watter from Tienen


80 watter from Spandau

And 50 watter from Budapest, Ujpest.

I have found that MBF/U/HPL-N/HgLi/HQL 50 watters seem to blacken very rapidly....something to do with the tiny arc tube with huge surface-area-to-volume-ratio.


Are you in Sweden? If so you seem to have almost exactly the same range and brands of lamps we have here in Australia!

Manufactured articles should be made to be used, not made to be sold!

Yes, i am in Sweden!
And yes, 50W mercs are really nice small light sources but they loose light way to fast. You might as well use a 80W bulb instead to compensate for the light loss over it's life.

When i visited Australia it felt like a "american-european" country and judging from the pictures here on the site it really seems like that is the case! It is oh so different but still so familiar! I guess that is what happens when you live right in the middle of two very different cultures.

If you add a 400w lamp you got all the common wattages.

They tried MBF/U 50 in the suburb of Howrah, next suburb to mine, about 20 years ago and then rapidly abandoned them because of this very issue....MBF/U 80s rapidly replaced them.


It is very interesting to see we are considered as a chimera of American and European from a Swedish standpoint...but it seems logical.

We were a lot more British 50 years ago...the American influence really came in force when one of our past Prime-Ministers, John Howard just could not bring himself away from fawning up to Gerorge Bush Senior....!


Sweden is a country with very traditional and long lamp making history.

Manufactured articles should be made to be used, not made to be sold!
