T2 Fluorescent Light
Commonly used in compact lighting settings, such as aquarium lighting or under-the-counter lighting, a T2 fluorescent light bulb is an economic solution to your lighting needs. If you are shopping for T2 florescent bulbs, Lightbulb Wholesaler has a range of options for you to consider.
How Fluorescent Lighting Works
Fluorescent tubes are small-sealed gas tubes that contain a bit of mercury and an inert gas. The tube is coated with a phosphor powder and has two electrodes at the end. When the lamp is turned on, current flows through those electrodes, changing some of the mercury to gas. This reaction causes the gas to release light photons. The light photons illuminate the phosphor powder coating, thus producing visible light.
Types of T2 Tubes
T2 tubes are approximately 1/4 inch in diameter, with lengths from 8.6 inches to 20.6 inches. These tiny tubes can produce a lot of power for their size, ranging from 6 watts to 13 watts.
They also come in a variety of color temperatures, so you can choose the lighting that suits you best. Lightbulb Wholesaler stocks bulbs with Kelvin ranges from 3000K to 4100K. A warm white 3000K is similar in color to a halogen lamp and provides a whiter light compared to incandescent lamps. Lamps with 3500K provide a white color — the standard color for fluorescent tubes. Finally, 4000K and 4100K lamps have a cool white color, ideal for laboratory and commercial settings.
