175W Westinghouse Lifeguard lamp *survivor*

175W Westinghouse Lifeguard lamp *survivor*

Click to view full size image

I found this old lamp in a newer Philips sleeve at the local ReStore and bought it to see if it would light up. I call this lamp a survivor because despite showing signs of very heavy use and a bent frame it still lights up very brightly.

Not all that blackened. MV lamps get much blacker than that. It's a nice lamp though, being a lifeguard. And a clear one at that...

First the arc tube turns white along the whole length and then it turns black after a LOT of hours.

It should turn black after turning white, when all the emission mix is gone, and than it should rectify or just stop working, like what happening with fluorescent lamps when reaching to this state.

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.

Very nice!
These Lifeguards are tough as nails, and, depending on your age, could easily outlive you in 24/7 service. I have one from '79, given to me by a fellow Lighting Gallery member, for which I am eternally grateful. I plan to put it in service since I know it will last practically forever...so it can be appreciated.
