Several 1000w Blue Metal Halide Lamps over Reef Exhibit

Several 1000w Blue Metal Halide Lamps over Reef Exhibit

Click to view full size image

Interesting shot above the huge coral reef tank at Long Island Aquarium in New York, dozens of 1Kw Blue metal halides light the tank, in front you see a single LED fixture that didnt appear to be working or turned on. Some of the MH lamps have gone a pink/purply color, but the majority were a deep blue, I assume Ushio lamps for maybe Radium

Also forgot to mention there were also 30 or more 400w floods that flanked the sides, all using the blue lamps as well

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

Interesting lighting setup. How large is the water tank to require so many high-wattage MH lamps?

The tank was huge, maybe 20,000 gallons, swimming pool size

Wow, That's a ton of power! Cool that its HID lit

I'd love to see a pic looking in the front of the tank! (off-topic section maybe?)

I have actually gotten to see the "behind the scenes" equipment like this at a few different aquariums. Some of the ones I have seen are Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies in TN, and the aquarium at the Henry Doorly zoo in NE. It's really cool seeing all of the equipment they need for aquariums like this.

What could the total consumption be on this reef?

I counted 14 dark-grey shoplights, minimum of 7 floods at right (400 watts?),
9 grow-hoods in the center with a smaller shoplight in front (is that the non-working LED?).

Equal to 23 kilowatts plus the 2800 watt floods at right, minimum!

Did you factor in ballast losses? Each 1000W/M47 fixture has an average loss of 80 watts, and the 400W/M59 has an average loss of 55 watts.

Proudy suffering from "Westinghouse Lifeguard Disease" since 1977! :lol:
There's no known cure for Westinghouse Lifeguard disease, so the only way to treat it is to find more!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:
Real HID lamps contain Hg! ;D
