Soviet made SLZ NOS F80T12 LDC-80 Fluorescent tube, the rarer color type.

Click to view full size image

This is a NOS Soviet made F80T12 5 foot long tube with an unusual rarer type color type called LDC-80. LDC color type is 5000k and so the tube has natural hue to it when light, all things around look very natural. Very nice, I now have all four soviet color temperatures. 3000k, 3500k, 5000k and 7500k. I will probably post the side to side comparison between all four colors, sometime soon.

This tube is really nice. I got it from my neighbor. He was changing his light fixtures in his garage, he replaced old soviet 2xF80T12 5 foot fixtures, because the ballasts were humming too loud he said. So he gave me the last spare tube he had witch was this one, and the other ones he broke in the process of taking them out, except one, witch I will present in the next picture, because they were rusted in sockets. I would have taken the fixtures too, but he said he will take apart the ballasts and sell the copper, along with the fixtures, What a shame, I only have one F80T12 preheat ballast in my collection. I ran this tube on my IS ballast, I hooked up two F32 outputs on this tube and it ran perfectly. Just look at that thicccccc massssssive filament :D

Unfortunately no, because those fixtures were heavy metal, and he said he will sell them in metal workshop. What a shame.

New lighting technologies is a pity fest everywhere you look. From LEDs that last only for two months, to a never-ending global starvation of t8 fluorescent tubes.
We shall reinforce ourselves with good old full mercury t12s and HIDs made to surpass one's life, and give them all the middle finger ;

A 80W MV ballast should run them fine, or as well a standard 5ft 65/58W fluorescent ballast. There are some types of tubes around, especially in GB which are rated 65/80W - Means you can run them either on a 65W 0.67A fluorescent ballast or 80W MV 0.8A ballast.

That is very helpful information, thank you very much! I know one store next to me that sells 80 watt MV ballasts. Perfect!
