Ideal companion for T5 fluorescent
lamps nurturelite Super HPS
Lamps are High Pressure Sodium lamps
designed to deliver 10% to 15% more useful light
than standard HPS lamps. This extremely energy-efficient
plant growing lamp provides more energy which
is essential for optimized photosynthetic response.

How does it work?
The high-pressure sodium lamps
have excellent colour rendition with a white/yellow
colour appearance. The light is still very biased
towards the yellow, but is very acceptable for
flowering and fruiting applications. In high-pressure
lamps the light-producing element is an arc
tube that is small in diameter to maintain a
high operating temperature. Because of the small
diameter, there is no starting electrode inside
the arc tube.
The arc tube has to be made of
a ceramic material due to corrosive effect of
sodium on ordinary glass or quartz, operating
at a slight pressure and high temperature. Inside
the arc tube is the PURple™
gas which is in a plasma state when operational.
Unique to the fabrication of
Super HPS is heating the ceramic tube to over
1400K and then adding the core transmission
line (PURple Integrated Antenna), then heating
to over 1400K again to complete the process.
Only 2 R&D factories in the world are capable
of this. We can only manufacture 6 lamps at
a time using this method and it currently limits
production to 3000 lamps per day.
