Performance requirements for glass tubes for LED lamps

The performance of the straight tube type LED lamp housing glass tube mainly includes the appearance effect, light transmittance, fogging degree, temperature and humidity resistance, moisture resistance, hardness, conductivity, expansion rate, bending degree, and the color parameters of the entire light.

Performance requirements for glass tubes for LED lamps

Key indicators are as follows:

①Appearance effect: Generally the color is milky white, the surface is smooth, no bubbles, no scratches, no spots, etc .;

②Transmittance: Test calculation method, using the same light source at the specified voltage and power respectively apply transparent glass tubes and milky white glass tubes of the same specifications, using an integrating sphere to its photoelectric color parameter test, milky white and transparent light effect. The ratio is the light transmittance. Generally, the light transmittance is required to be above 92%;

③Atomization degree: Put the matched light source (lamp beads) device in the glass tube, light the lamp at the rated voltage and power, and you can’t see the light-emitting point (lamp beads). Consistent performance, no obvious difference between light and dark;

④Temperature resistance: Put the glass tube in a high-temperature box of 150 ℃. After 200 hours, there is no color change, no burst, no deformation, etc .;

⑤Water resistance: Put the glass in a constant temperature water bath at 60 ℃. After 24 hours, there will be no color change, no cracks, no distortion, etc .;

⑥ Expansion coefficient fluctuation: The expansion coefficient fluctuation of the same batch of glass tubes shall be controlled within ± 1 × 10-7 / ℃;

⑦Conductivity: The inner and outer walls of the glass tube are required to be non-conductive;

⑧Light color effect: milk-white glass tube and transparent glass tube use the same light source to test light color parameters, and the spectrum, color temperature, and color rendering index must not be significantly different;

⑨Hardness: Take T8 glass as an example, the general pressure required to test the vertical pressure using a general glass pressure gauge is greater than 300N, which depends on the customers of each manufacturer

⑩ Bend: Take T8-1.2 meters long glass tube as an example, the bend is generally not required to exceed 3 °.

Among the above properties, most manufacturers pay more attention to the influence of light transmittance, fogging degree, temperature and humidity resistance, and light color.

Smart lighting strategy starts with LED

Regardless of whether you are considering implementing an intelligent lighting system based on the Internet of Things, it is also wise to evaluate the most basic element in a lighting strategy: the light bulb. Incandescent bulbs are still widely used, but this is changing with the advent of LEDs.

Smart lighting strategy starts with LED

In essence, LED bulbs produce more light than traditional bulbs. When they first launched, they emitted more “cold” white light, and today they can provide the same natural “warm” light as incandescent lamps.

Many companies around the world have turned to LEDs, which can be easily installed in existing lighting fixtures in most commercial buildings. The reason for their installation is that LEDs save up to 75% of energy compared to incandescent bulbs, have a bulb lifespan more than 25 times longer, and generally produce better light quality than incandescent bulbs. In addition to saving money on energy use, many power companies also provide energy-saving subsidies as an incentive for companies to transform LEDs. Lighting retrofits are often considered the easiest to achieve results, as it can easily and immediately help significantly reduce energy consumption.

The LED lighting is not only suitable for office buildings, but also for almost all other types of commercial facilities:

Warehouses and industrial environments: Large venues like these benefit from LED lighting because they consume less energy, and LED lights can emit light in a specific direction (unlike incandescent and fluorescent lights).

Indoor farms: Some high-tech farms around the world are using LED lights to optimize plant growth. They do this by customizing light “recipes” and can influence the way plants grow and their taste.

Commercial parking: For security purposes, the quality of lighting is of paramount importance in indoor and outdoor parking facilities. In addition to saving money, security is also one of the reasons why parking lot lighting has become the fastest growing LED commercial lighting market.

Health care facilities: The design of health care facilities is partly for the comfort of patients. LED lighting helps to create the ideal light output for the environment while improving efficiency.

Correctional facilities: Correctional facilities have a variety of lighting needs, from cells and activity rooms to lounges and corridors. LED lights do not interfere with security and cameras, they maintain uniform, high-quality light, which improves visibility.

Educational facilities: LED lights are ideal for schools with limited budgets, and energy savings can be reused for technology and other educational resources.

Retail facilities: More and more retailers are using LED lighting to add beauty and visual appeal to their stores, creating a superior shopping experience. Proper in-store lighting can increase sales.
Because LED lights are naturally friendly to digital control, they are very suitable for IoT applications. IoT LED lighting is the ideal way to achieve maximum savings and gain valuable operational insights that can improve every aspect of your building management.

A typically manufactured lamp (excluding electronics and optics) has a 47% less carbon footprint than traditional metal lamps. What’s more, almost all parts can be reused or recycled, which is undoubtedly the favorable support of the circular economy theory.

Olivia Qiu, chief innovation officer of Xinuofei, said in an interview: “We are the first lighting company to provide industrial production of 3D printed lamps. This confirms once again Xinuofei’s leading position in the lighting industry and innovation and environmental protection. .Printing lamps open up a more flexible, fast and environmentally friendly manufacturing method. We can produce lamps by fully customizing or retrofitting existing designs so that we can avoid consuming large investments and long production cycles, and can quickly meet consumers Demand. ”

“Consumers don’t need to wait long, and only need a few days to see their ideas become a reality. At the same time, compared with traditional production processes, printing requires less energy. Compared to traditionally made metal lamps, we 3D printed luminaires produce less carbon footprint. They are also lighter, so this also reduces carbon emissions during transportation. By producing products in urban areas, the carbon footprint can be further reduced. Of course, LEDs Light sources are also more energy efficient than traditional lighting. “
