Lamp start....,the red colour has been destorted by my camera.
The actual colour, seen with the eye is more like the reflection on the table.

The fist lamp site I went on, when we got the internet, was James`s, (Hookers), excellent `Lamptech.co.uk`.
I already had good knowledge of discharge lamps, as I started to collect them at age 10!!!!!
But James`s site taught me so much more, I must have read every page, solid for a month.
I found this site off his `links` page.........Thankyou James!

Wow, is it really that deep of a neon red? Very nice! About how many hours on the bulb?

Bring SOX lamps back!!!

FYI, LED's are NOT the most efficient lighting technology available! Don't know how people keep coming to that conclusion!

My other interests: sports cars, refrigeration, microcontroller projects, computer hardware, and any sort of custom fabrication.

SOX55W: LPS have ususally this deep red color during run up as they have usually 5% argon and 95% neon.
Mercury retrofit HPS lamps also have this color during run-up, before they turns bluish, as they have also argon-neon in them.
In fact, one can see a red neon glow for a brief moment during the ignition of the Philips HPI family of quartz MH lamps before the electrodes begins to light, as they also contains argon-neon.

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.

I was wondering only because both of my lamps, especially the 18W, have a distinct purple tint to the red, and marveling because I have not seen the deep red neon like that before. Both of my lamps were bought new and have only seen 100 hrs or so. The borate glass does clean up the argon with use over time, especially in the 180W size.

Most of the LPS lamps have 5% argon in the neon filling.
Your lamps have probably more argon in the neon filling.
From pictures of GEC-Osram and Osram LPS lamps runs-up, i know that this is the characteristic of Osram LPS lamps.
LPS lamps are almost nonexists in Israel today.

LinearSLI/H: In the highway that passes Kerayot towns and Acre (Spanwire linear fixtures with LPS lamps), and solar LPS lanterns in bus stations for sodiers.
Today i can see LPS lamps on the chimneys of the coal power plant of Hadera, that used as obstruction lights. Also in the underground parking lot of Panorama center in Carmel city center, there are few LPS wallpacks.

dor123: yeah, both of mine are philips. They're the only brand I can get new here in the US, but at least I can still get them new! SOX stuff is so hard to find in the US. Ebay only ever has one page or less.

According to lamptech, the argon % is actually only 1-1.5%. It also mentions Thorn SLI's had some xenon added (0.2%) in the late 70's. LinerSLI, do you have any Xenon filled SLI lamps, or have at least seen one? I bet the starting glow is really cool.

@SOX55W, Philips are the only ones making them now, at Hamilton in Scotland, even the new Osram ones are Philips, my SLI is not the Xenon one, but is does have GEC own colour here, my Thorn one is more of a pink, shown here, with a 135watt Sox, another Philips.
@xmaslightsguy, Ta, I thought you had seen this before though?
