These high wattage incandescent lamps are intended mainly for lighthouses.

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.

Impressive beast, draw 83 1/3 amps to light this beast, it will just take up the whole pole 25 KVA pole transformer to light it.

No LED gadgets, spins too slowly.  Gotta  love preheat and MV. let the lights keep my meter spinning.

Very impressive indeed and a superb addition to your collection. I have seen these lamps before in wooden boxes with spring supports with in the box to prevent jarring to the lamps during transit, amazing things.

I've seen the ones at the Smithsonian. As for the wattage....I think 75kW and 50kW. They were used for an Edison anniversary commemoration.

Very nice, rigo!!

Yep 20kw or 20000 watt lamps are used for Television/Film Studios especially for Outdoor scenes where they need as much light as possible to replicate Noon Daylight, and/or to reduce the shadows when filming outside. these days, Xenon Discharge or Metal Halide Lamps are now used as they have the correct Colour Temperature for Daylight Balanced Film, Nope not a Lighthouse Lamp as the biggest I know of is 4500 watts, though back in the 1930's they used to have 10000 watt Lighthouse Lamps for Long Range Lights but these days the biggest is 1500 watts and soon even these can become a thing of the Past as most Lighthouse use Metal Halide Lamps and even LED's (Light Emitting Diodes)

Ehow not bad IR heater you got there

Jeremy - That 110v 100KW think would take 1KA current. How are conductors of that sorta size sealed through the lamp's glass ??? i'd expect the high power lamps to run at few 100's V or KV (as much as the gas fill constraints allow) to try and keep down the current...

Nice score, I bet it would throw a colossal amount of light !

@sailormoon : Here all lighthouses were converted (around 2000 or 2001) to xenon flash tubes in a diffuser lens (similar to camera flash). They don't rotate anymore ; all rotating lens and gearwork have been removed. Before that, they were mercury vapour in rotating mechanisms, and all were dayburners (on purpose). The flash tubes are dayburners as well, probably for reliability reasons.

WOW , what a beauty . Who says size doesnt matter xx lol xx !! I love these huge bulbs. Ive got some 10KW (Thorn ,Mazda and a GEC) which are TV studio lamps. (one of the Thorns was actually used for temporary floodlighting on a church at new year although it is in fact a TV studio lamp).
Two of the Thorn lamps are new unused and in their original packaging (will do some pics soon) The packaging consists of rough wooden box and the lamp is in a string "hammock".

The 10KW lamps arent as big as this though!! This is beautiful . Id like to see more detail of the base??

I have a 10Kw CP/13, like Bluto's and a 10Kw halogen version, but this is something else!
James saw a CP/12 (20Kw) at Thorn's old Troon Way plant but did not "five finger discount" it when he left.
I agree with Colin that it is not for lighthouse use, it has a flat class A1 filament structure which is indeed intended for placement in the optical systems of luminares used for film, television and theatrical work.
Stan has one similar and Fin had a Philips 13013K, both of these were greater or equal to 10Kw!

Manufactured articles should be made to be used, not made to be sold!

Now it would be interesting to see a fresnel for these lamps, which must have been larger than the models for the current 20k halogen lamps. People are talking about looming lenses, two metres in diameter...
