Burned Out Philips F15T8 24"

Here is the odd length flourescent light that recently burned out at our Kitchen Desk lamp. I replaced with full mercury General Electric version to see how it would last.

This bulb probably last about 5 years in regular used prior burning out.

With the thanks to jercar954 on dating this specimen

Yeah, our school district used to purchase the Philips Alta lamps, and they lasted for 5 or 6 years, now we are getting the Sylvania Octron tubes. They only last about 1/4 of that long; lower mercury lamps have thier drawbacks.

For some reason, Philip's version of the "Appliance" lamp is 15w, while the others are 18w. I have a few or these, and if it's even close to 60F in there, they never stop striating. In so many ways, they are very much like reduced wattage lamps for preheaters
