Sylvania Octron F32T8CW's

Sylvania Octron F32T8CW's


Here are some Sylvania Octron F32T8CW lamps. Of all my T8 lamps, these seem to produce the best startup flicker. Very T12 like. I use a rapid start magnetic F32T8 ballast. Stay tuned for a startup demo.

So they are 741s right? I have two, a 741 and an 841, both found in the dumps and used in my shoplight for almost a year now (since last Xmas). They run very well.

I also have some of the 741 lamps, mine seem to start up mercury starved with the centre dim and then slowly warmup to full brightness.They were used a electronic instant start and a electronic rapid start ballast, I'll have to try them on a magnetic ballast to see if they still act the same. They seem to be pretty reliable though, I have a pair that has been used for more than 2 years now.

I had this problem with mines for the first 10 hours, then the problem disappeared by itself. Yours should act the same after a few hours working.

Yep. These are 741's. I've noticed slight mercury starvation on cold startups. Warm startups are normal. I've noticed a weird pattern with these. On a cold startup, one tube will be bright at one end, dim about 1/4 of the way down, bright in the middle, dim 3/4 of the way down, and bright at the other end. Sometimes they instant start on cold startups as well. Warm startups always have startup flicker. I wonder if Sylvania uses the mercury dosing bottle on their T8's like Philips does.

Power provided by Alabama Power, 120 volts 60 Hz. House is an LED free zone, tungsten and linear fluorescent only.

I love Sylvania octron lamps. I have five different colors of these, but I still need the 2700K version, 3500K version, and cool white version of these. I have a GE cool white F32T8, but I'd like to keep my collection all Sylvania. They all have very nice color. That's why I get them.

Vintage products are the best! Nothing will ever compare to the quality of old, U.S. made fluorescent bulbs, ballasts, and fixtures.
