Zoo Med Powersun UV Vapor Lamp Information

Ensure that your reptiles are given the right temperature inside the terrarium with the Zoo Med Powersun UV Vapor Lamp 160W from Pet Store. This particular fixture is responsible for giving your reptiles the appropriate amount of heat that they need. This is because reptiles are cold-blooded creatures, and they need an external source for warmth. Without it, your pets will not be able to digest their food properly, nor will they grow faster and live longer.

The Zoo Med Powersun UV Vapor Lamp 160W is easy to install with a few cables and a mount. It is essentially a lamp, which radiates a 160-watt light, enough to illuminate the contents of the terrarium. This amount of power is already sufficient to spread the warmth within your pets' home. It makes sure that there is an even temperature all throughout the glass case.

This lighting fixture is quite durable, and it will last use for several months. It gives off a brighter color than other bulbs that you are used to. Nevertheless, the radiance is still pleasing to the eyes. Your pets will appreciate the warm that this product gives.

Give your reptile friends the light and heat that it requires to survive with the Zoo Med Powersun UV Vapor Lamp 160W.

Zoo Med PowerSun UV is a self-ballasted mercury vapor bulb with two main components. The first is a standard incandescent filament, which is the first to light. The second is a mercury vapor arc tube, which takes a few minutes to heat up. There will be a noticeable change in hue (or color) when the bulb is completely warm and fully functioning. Because the PowerSun UV is a self- ballasted bulb it can be used in any ceramic socket that is rated to handle the wattage.  Zoo Med PowerSun UV has nickel-plated threads to ensure that it will not corrode in humid reptile habitats. This new bulb also incorporates a short neck design, unique among mercury vapor lamps, that allows it to better fit into "clamp lamp" type fixtures. PowerSun UV projects useable UVB radiation a far greater distance (up to 6 feet) than conventional fluorescent tubes.  Available in UV 100W and UV 160W
