I like the Comfort type Mercury Lamps, as they look a Pastel yellow colour when not lit and when lit they give a warmer pleasing light compared to standard Mercury Metal Halide Lamps of 4000 deg K and above.

B.T.W. I see you have a Folder called Fluorescent Tubes bu I cannot open it, as it asking for a password.

All the Best

Hi Colin, I prefer the look of the comfort mercury vapour lamps too, the colour distortion isn't so bad either. Thanks for notifying me about the password thing, as far as I'm aware I haven't put a password on it but I'll try and solve the problem.

Eliot

Update: there was indeed a password on that folder (I'm sure I didn't put it there) but I've removed it now. I'm afraid there's not a lot in that folder only a few pics and a PDF file.

Hi Elliot

Re the Mercury COmfort Lamps, I have a Radium Philips and a Thorn in 50 watt, Philips and Thorn in 80 watts and a Tungsram 250 watt I also recently recieved This Lamp a US/Canadian 175w H38-KC175/N Mercury Lamp see HERE, which is very Rare as in the USA/Canada they became discontinued in the 1990's, at least in Europe Mercury Comfort Lamps are still available for the time being in 50 to 400 watts,

Another Mercury Lamp, I like are the Clear lamps as they show the inners in the UK they too have become Discontinued but are still sold on E-bay etc they are known as MB/U Lamps they were made in 250 watts 400 watts with a Tubular Bulb, and 1000 watts with a Tubular Bulb (Philips) and Elliptical Bulb (Osram-GEC) the 1000 watt lamps are very rare though, also the 700w lamp was never made in the UK/Europe with a Clear bulb, (only in the USA and Japan made them) they ware also made in 80w and 125 watts but were in a Pearl Bulb they look like a 150/200w Filament Bulb but have a 3 pin BC Cap, In the USA and Japan you can get Clear Mercury Lamps in 40 watts to 2000 watts in either Elliptical Clear or BT (Also known as Bulged Tubular) Bulbs, I have a wide selection from 40 watts to 1000 watts, I am missing the 75w, 80w, 300w, 700w and 2000w sizes to complete the range. Standard Mercury Lamps I do have them All except for the European 2000 watt size, the US/Japanese Lamps with Fluorecent Coated Bulbs, I have them All in 40/50w, 75w, 80w, 100w, 175w, 200w, 250w, 300w, 400w, 700w, 1000w, and 2000w.

I also have a Sylvania Clear Mercury Lamp which was a lamp which was made deliberately with NO Fluorescent Coating as a Pasttime.

No Problems you just need to ste you Album to Public

All the Best

Today i have found that Philips lighting europe seem to be in a process of discontinuing of manufacturing mercury lamps, as in their online catalog, only the HPL-N and Comfort appears. The HPL-4 and HPL-R and their SBMVs ML and ML-R were disappeared from their catalog.
Note: I checked the UK catalog as this is the only catalog of Philips lighting Europe that is in English. The other contries catalogs aren't in english and the US Philips is a completely different company than the global Philips company.

I"m don't speak English well, and rely on online translating to write in this site.
Please forgive me if my choice of my words looks like offensive, while that isn't my intention.

I only working with the European date format (dd.mm.yyyy).

I lives in Israel, which is a 230-240V, 50hz country.

Colin,

I only have the one comfort mercury bulb at the moment and a standard Osram MBF/U, my collection is growing though so I'll probably have more soon.

MB/U is another favourite of mine, I've only seen one in the flesh here in the UK unfortunately and I've been looking for one ever since. As I only have one ballast at the moment which is 80W I've been looking for an 80W clear bulb but like you've said the only pictures of them I've seen have been of pearl bulbs so I may struggle to find a clear one.

I check your site regularly for new lamps and tubes and I must say it's a great collection. May I ask if you have any information on those old Pulsestarters I picked up off ebay, brown canisters are something I've not seen before and I'm wondering if they're the original 1980s ones.

I checked the Swedish Philips catalog and they still list HPL-4 and SBMVs. HPL-R has disappeared. (I can't find ML-R either, but I don't think ML-R were ever available here.)

in the UK Philips supply the Philips HPL-N in 50 to 1000 watts and the HPL-Comfort in 50 to 400 watts, however they don't show the HPL-R or ML Lamps, but they are still sold in the UK for Commercial/Industrial Lighting (HPL-R) and the ML SBMV lamps are sold in the UK in 100,160,250 and 500 watts for Industrial and Hazardous Area Lighting, see HERE for Mercury Lamps sold in the UK by BLT Direct.

All the Best

I do have some clear 80w elliptical mercury lamps if anyone is still looking for them - feel free to PM me if interested - I've been meaning to post some pictures of my collection but alas it's still in my "a round tuit" pile!

I'm running one in my yard light (a Nordex Astra 1 which came with a Sylvania HSL-BW 80W) and have another in one of those Ikea half-globe uplighters in my loft, very effective!

I recently bought an HPL Comfort 80w and found that it light is almost exactly the same as a normal mercury bulb. However, it does not have such a purple tinge like many mercury bulbs have nowadays.

Philips HPL Comfort MV lamps are coated with yttrium vanadate and YAG phosphors. The latter phosphor also used in White LEDs and produce a yellow light.
I saw Osram HQL-R 80W reflector mercury lamps in the past. Although they have yttrium borate as the other phosphor to the vanadate, instead of YAG, their color is not different considerably then the HWL or ML SBMV lamps having yttrium vanadate phosphor and a tungsten filament.
If there isn't too much phosphor emission in certain parts of the red wavelengths of the mercury lamp, its color will be less pinkish or it will be not pinkish at all.

Interesting that Philips claimed a higher CRI for the standard HPL than for the comfort version (642 versus 534)

We do not have to agree on anything to be kind to one another. The ability to be civil is available to everyone on earth, for free.
