Benefits of Compact Fluorescent Lamps

Benefits Of Compact Fluorescent Light Bulbs CFLs Lighting your way to a brighter future Why switch to an energy saving CFL • Using compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs) helps us lessen our impact on the earth while saving energy and money. • CFLs can be recycled - which keeps more materials out of landfills. • They last longer, up to 10 times longer than incandescent light bulbs, which means fewer trips to the store, saving you time AND money. • By switching from a 60W incandescent to a...

Wolf Spider

plays a role in how much weight a spider can gain. As temperatures lower spiders on average put on less weight than spiders in warmer temperatures. The wolf spiders in my experiment also showed a response in the form of movement to immediate fluorescent lighting. Size was shown to be a determining factor in the time taken for wolf spider interactions with other wolf spiders. Introduction Wolf Spiders are ground dwelling spiders that do not form webs as a method of capturing prey. They rely...

Compact Fluorescent Lamp and Reusable Water Bottle

life. Here are ten ways that you can go green. 1. Save energy to save money. * Set your thermostat a few degrees lower in the winter and a few degrees higher in the summer to save on heating and cooling costs. * Install compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs) when your older incandescent bulbs burn out. * Unplug appliances when you're not using them. Or, use a "smart" power strip that senses when appliances are off and cuts "phantom" or "vampire" energy use. * Wash clothes...

Choke Coil in Tube Lights

as a fluorescent lamp, current causes resistance to decrease. This is because as more electrons and ions flow through a particular area, they bump into more atoms, which frees up electrons, creating more charged particles. In this way, current will climb on its own in a gas discharge, as long as there is adequate voltage (and household AC current has a lot of voltage). If the current in a fluorescent light isn't controlled, it can blow out the various electrical components. A fluorescent lamp's...

Tanning Beds

diseases. Without question there is no life without sunlight, but life with too much UV light exposure is linked to a higher skin cancer rate . Ultraviolet rays are transmitted from the bulbs in a tanning bed. These fluorescent lights allow the skin to become tan. These fluorescent lamps are almost the same as those in the sun's rays. If this is true than what is the problem with tanning at a facility rather than in the sun? Over exposure to these rays, in any form, can raise serious issues to one's...

incandescent lighting or install fluorescent lights with cold-tolerant ballasts and vapor-proof fixtures. Install lights so that lighting will not be obstructed by food stored on shelves. Light bulbs or fluorescent tubes in areas where food is prepared, open food is stored or displayed, or where utensils are cleaned and stored, shall be of coated, shatterproof construction. Alternatively, light fixtures may be protected with shatterproof shields or lens covers. Fluorescent lighting not inside fixtures...

Disadvantages of Induction Lighting

just a revamped one. Induction, or QL as it is also known, combines the basic principals of induction and gas discharge in an A-lamp design. Basically it is a light without electrodes. There are several disadvantages to Induction light sources as compared to LED fixtures: 1. The Induction system requires 3 components, the generator, the power coupler and the lamp. All three components are almost always supplied as a system and the manufacturers highly recommend replacing all three every relamp...
