SG1-40 (4 foot) 16 pack
Product DescriptionThis is $35 per lamp, $5 less than our regular sale price, and 42% off retail. This is the 4 foot version of the SG-1 lamp, using the exact same components and phosphors.
Patented technology delivers insane amounts of UVA in the 365nm-370nm range, with a dose of 312-325nm and 288nm to prevent bubbling in your finish. Perfect length for most violin builders, guitars, pool cues, fishing lures, you name it. Centered at 60w, will operate anywhere between 32w and 80w. Will tolerate much higher wattages up to 100w but that will dramatically reduce life. Estimated life for use in wood aging, cannabis cultivation or other applications where they are not cycled on and off frequently is 2000 hours or more. Rapid cycle application reduces life to around 1500 hours. This is our most popular SG grade lamp, due to the easy to work with 4 foot length.
These will work fine in standard, off the shelf light fixtures, although they will be at lower power, thus lower output. This will translate into longer life as well. A regular F32T8 lamp fixture will deliver 32 watts. The less common and older style F40T12 fixture is better, at 40w per lamp. Both configurations have been tested extensively. Matches up well with our Workhorse 7 ballast, but it really shines with the SunHorse ballast, which pushes 60w of high frequency power to it (about the same as a generic 80w ballast). Many medicinal marijuana growers just use two of them in a standard F32 fixture (4-6 lamps per 1000w MH/HPS unit) and get up to 4 flowering seasons, making them extremely cost effective. No matter how you drive it, the SG lamps WILL deliver.
All SG model lamps have a built in reflector. Regular lamps (shown left) emit light in all directions, but almost all reflectors will absorb the UV instead of reflect it. By putting in a special reflective coating INSIDE the lamp (right), we can reflect the UV back to the project, before it even has a chance to pass through the glass. The result is up to 50% more UV output on your project. Add that to the superior output and patented technology inside, and you have twice the functional power when compared to any ordinary UV lamp. Patented, tested and proven.
|Solacure Means Quality|
Solacure ultraviolet lamps aren't just good, we guarantee they are the best. We don't use stock parts anywhere in our products. Our glass is a special blend, and more transparent to UVA and UVB. Our 32 watt lamps use 60 watt rated cathodes and are tested at almost 70 watts of power. Almost all our lamps have built in reflectors. All are designed to be overdriven to extra high wattages. We test, and test, and test our lamps.
We stand behind everything we sell and guarantee each will perform exactly to specification, or we will replace them. We don't want your business this week, we want it every week, and we are willing to earn it. There really is a difference in quality when it comes to ultraviolet bulbs, and Solacure tops the list.
