A mercury lamp uses an electric arch through vaporized mercury to produce light. They were the first commercially available HID lamp. HID stands for High-Intensity Discharge lamp. Its arc discharge is confined to a fused quartz arc tube that is mounted in the borosilicate glass bulb. The arc tube acts as a resistor and supplies current to the starter electrode. Mercury lamps are used in various applications, however, they are most commonly used in street lights. This is because they are much more efficient than fluorescent and incandescent bulbs and have a higher life expectancy. There is no need to fear of any ultraviolet radiation from mercury bulbs as they are coated with phosphor or any thermal insulation on its outer side. eWorldTrade has a huge range of mercury lamps.
