Phileeps 175w medium base metal halide

Phileeps 175w medium base metal halide

After a rather disappointing Restore trip yesterday, I was desperately searching for something HID related when I came across this hiding in a dark corner behind a box of various incandescents. It was only $0.25. The trip didn't end up being completely fruitless since I found some waterproof Romex for cheap. One thing I don't like about Philips lamps is the messy end coating on the arctubes compared to other brands.

Yep, it's always nice to find cheap HID lamps at Restore stores that are new since they save me a lot of cash if I have a fixture that needs a new lamp. I actually have a 175w metal halide shoebox that needs a new lamp and this is perfect.

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

And here in Canada, HID gets quite expensive when you consider shipping and exchange...

My first comment was in reference to the handwritten note on the package.

Yep, I noticed that lol. This lamp was actually made in August 2006 so it might have been left over from an old construction project.

Anyway, nice lamp, hope it serves you well despite being a cram lamp. Although I am a big fan of high CRI CMH lamps, nothing beats the sparkle of a good quartz lamp.

These Philips reduced envelope 175's had the poorest lumen and color maintenance of all USA made brands ive used in parking garage relampings. They went pink or purple several thousand hours sooner than their GE or Sylvania counterparts. Also, for whatever reason the arc tends to swirl around in the arctube of Philips QMH lamps much more than other brands ive noticed
