For many industrial businesses, the ban on high pressure mercury lamps means that the entire lighting system has to be replaced. Do you know what alternatives there are?
Many industrial warehouses are traditionally lit by metal halogen lighting, high-pressure sodium vapour lamps, and high pressure mercury lamps. The high pressure mercury lamps were often chosen because of the low investment costs, high performance, and long life-span. Statistics show that the lumen per Watt ratio is 30 to 60, and the average lifespan is about 24.000 hours.
The blue/white light of the mercury lamp is furthermore considered more pleasant than the yellowy light of sodium lamps. In this light, colour perception is almost impossible. The colour temperature of mercury lamps is 3300-4500 Kelvin, compared to a colour temperature of 1900-2500 Kelvin in the sodium lamp.
For many industrial businesses, the ban on high pressure mercury lamps means that the entire lighting system has to be replaced. Depending on your organisation and investment options, there are various alternatives.
