What is the difference between tungsten and fluorescent lighting?
|Tungsten Filament Lamp||Fluorescent Tube|
|Maintenance cost is more.||Maintenance cost is low.|
|Brightness is more.||It’s light is cool and pleasant.|
Why fluorescent tube light is considered better than tungsten filament bulb? The phosphor fluoresces to produce light. A fluorescent bulb produces less heat, so it is much more efficient. A fluorescent bulb can produce between 50 and 100 lumens per watt. This makes fluorescent bulbs four to six times more efficient than incandescent bulbs.
Is tungsten better than LED? LED Life Span (average) is between 15,000 – 35,000 hours but the Tungsten Lamp have only 1,000-2,000 hours. On LED lifetime is 15 times Tungsten Lamp lifetime. Tungsten light operation Temperature is around 2000°C to 3600°C or over.
How do tungsten and fluorescent lights work? Compact fluorescent lights or CFL bulbs are hot cathode fluorescents and work the same way linear fluorescents do. Tungsten electrodes are heated, causing the argon-mercury gas to ionize and create a UV light which reacts with the phosphor coating on the interior of the glass to display the light we see.
