HALOGEN: HOW IT WORKS

  • The tungsten filament evaporates by releasing particles.
  • The evaporated tungsten combines with halogen gas within the glass envelope to create tungsten – halogen molecule.
  • The tungsten – halogen molecule then migrates back to the filament, eliminating blackening of the glass envelope. The tungsten is re-deposited and recycled onto the filament, strengthening the filament, extending the life of the lamp and the halogen gas is then free to start the cycle again.

KRYPTON & XENON: HOW IT WORKS 
  • The tungsten filament evaporates by releasing particles 
  • The evaporated tungsten combines with krypton or xenon gas within the glass envelope. 
  • The tungsten combined with krypton & xenon gas then migrates back to the filament, eliminating blackening of the glass envelope. The tungsten is re-deposited and recycled onto the filament, strengthening the filament, extending the life of the lamp and the krypton/xenon gas is then free to start the cycle again.
