Product Manuals & Documentation

175W 14000K METAL HALIDE SINGLE ENDED BULB—USHIO

The Ushio single-ended 14000K metal halide bulb offers excellent coloration and good intensity. It is crisp-white with a blue tint. It brings out the fluorescent pigments in corals nicely. Fluorescent supplementation is usually not necessary, but can be used for added intensity and to simulate dawn and dusk.  An excellent choice for reef tanks up to 18" deep. on how the different Kelvin ratings appear and more information on metal halide bulbs.

Common questions/problems concerning metal halide lamps:
  1. Metal halide lamps of the same kind are different colors?
    Metal halide lamps operate by passing an electric arc through an arc tube that excites particles in the arc tube. When the metal particles reach an excited state they emit energy in the form of visible light. It takes 100 hours of operation before the metal particles stabilize and become a consistent color. All metal halides require 100 hours of operation before color and light output stabilize. All metal halides inherently have a slight color variation between individual lamps.
  2. The metal halide lamp fires and then either burns dull or the arc extinguishes?
    Usually the ballast and lamp are not receiving enough power. Metal halides pull a high current. Usually the problem is either there is too great a load on the circuit or the extension cords are of a small wire size and can`t handle the power needed by the ballast. Use only heavy duty extension cords and try running a ballast off a circuit from another part of the house.
  3. Do I need a cover shield between the lamp and the aquarium?
    Metal halide lamps produce a large amount of UV and also have a potential of exploding. The single ended metal halide lamps have an outer jacket which eliminates most of the UV. However, they have an inherent risk of exploding and UL requires metal halide lamps to be enclosed. On double ended lamps there is no UV shield. Double ended lamps must have a glass shield or major eye injuries including blindness may occur.
  4. Can I operate a ballast and lamp together which are designed for different wattages?
    Each wattage lamp and ballast are designed together for optimal performance and safety. If you over drive the lamp it may explode and shorten the life of the ballast and lamps. If you under drive the lamp it will also shorten the life of both components and also may explode. Do not mix different type wattages of lamps and ballasts.
NOTE: The bulb should be handled carefully. Using soft gloves is a good idea to keep finger prints off bulb. This is during installation and replacement.

*Requires HQI ballast, electronic ballast or pulse start ballasts to work properly.

Nice Look!

Comments: Very nice white look with a hint of blue. They allow my LED blue supplements to pop corals much better than Reeflux 10k or 12k. Much whiter look than Reeflux 12k and not as yellow as reeflux 10K.

Comments: After alot of research, I decided on these 14k Ushios. I went with them because I wanted something not too blue like 20k, but not too white like 10k. These were a little whiter than I expected, but I am supplementing with T-5 Fiji Purple. My corals are exploding after only 2 weeks. After burn in they seem to have retained their color. I will probably stay with these when I need to replace them.

Comments: Very crisp, light blue light. Other 14K's I've tried looked too much like 20K's. This one is a very good blend of color.
