Nice! Rare lamp right here! Never seen a reflector MV of this wattage in use before. I've only ever seen small medium base ones (I think either 75 or 100W; they were in cylinder wall mount lights outside of the Rhode Island Mall, which has been gutted and remodeled into just a cluster of large anchor stores).

To resist is to piss in the wind, anyone who does will end up smelling.

Were 75w mercury reflectors even a thing? I know there were 50w and 100w versions.

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

IDK what wattage it was. Was just guessing. Unsure if they make 75W reflector mercs but if they made 50, 100, 175, and 400W I don't see why not.

Yeah I've only seen the 175w and 100w reflector mercs out in the wild. Both were used in recessed lights.

GE made the H75/100PFL43-44/4 which was a PAR 38 reflector mercury lamp designed for mining use. It operated on both 75w and 100w ballasts. GE also made a R-80 1kW reflector merc. It was available either unphosphored or with /DX phosphors.

Many years ago I was relamping recessed cans at a mall (outdoor in a front entrance soffit about 60' off the ground), they were large cans about the dimensions of a 5-gallon bucket, without reflector trims and had these same 400w mercury R-type lamps installed (hence no need for a reflector in fixture), I cant remember what brand they were but they looked identical to the pic above and super greened out and dim, I remember they had a bunch of debris collected inside the lamp's front protrusion/bump, which I can only assume was bits of the white reflector material flaking off inside the lamp. The arctubes were also white, not blackened. The mall wanted a "less-green, brighter light" in those cans, which was a difficult problem to solve as not only had LED retrofits not existed yet, but I couldnt source these same 400w mercury reflector lamps at the time either. Not to mention these cans had no reflector, so a non-reflector type lamp (BT, ED) was out of the question. I also quickly learned they had mercury ballasts, as the 400w MH I tested didnt light. The mall management did not want to replace the fixtures, so we decided to spray paint the inside of the cans white and install regular 400w DX ED37 lamps. They ended up being happy with that
