Amalgams Compact Fluorescent Lamps

Recently Zn/Hg amalgam has been used for the fluorecent lamps as a solid free flowing substitute instead of liquid mercury. The amount of available mercury for vaporization in a solid Zn/Hg sphere is a very important point in selecting the appropriate sphere mass according to the fluorecent lamps wattages. This Zn/Hg amalgam can be successfully applied to the standard linear, circular and compact fluorecent lamps.
Most of fluorecent lamps filled with liquid mercury have been producing with excess liquid mercury of 3-5 times more than the required dose to meet the environmental regulations expected in the future. Excess dose of mercury have a serious environmental problem from excessive dose of mercury, solid Zn/Hg we routinely produce can be used for fluorecent lamps instead of liquid mercury. By introducing the accurated mercury can be avoided. Solid dose can make the lamp manufactures easier to handle and reduce exposure danger to mercury in the workplace. They are produced with a precise amount of mercury. Also, we can provide you with any other alloys like Bi-In-Hg,Bi-Pb-In-Hg, Bi-Sn-Hg, etc., for compact fluorecent lamps which operate at a higher temperature
