TESTING MERCURY VAPOR LAMP “INNER TUBES”
CD 1964066 E&MP27.028
A high intensity mercury vapor lamp is really a tube within a tube. The smaller tube contains mercury vapor and is the source of light.
Here at the Westinghouse Lamp Division, Bloomfield, N.J., a worker is testing the inner tube, checking operating characteristics.
This is the type of lamp used to light working areas in the Douglas Aircraft Company plant in Long Beach, California.
