Cathode Hollow and Deuterium Lamps.

Cathode Hollow Lamps

An extensive range of Cathode Hollow Lamps and Deuterium Lamps are available inHollow Cathode Lamp both single and multi element combinations in standard 1.5" (37mm) and 2" (50mm) diameters. The 37mm versions are fitted with a two pin octal base, while the 50mm lamps have a flying lead terminated with a standard M9 plug designed to fit directly into Perkin Elmer AA equipment. Dated coded versions are available which use a multi pinned octal base specific to the intended manufacturer.

Russell Mainstream Supply's 37mm Hollow Cathode Lamps are suitable for most commercially available Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometers such as:

Baird Atomic, Beckman, Chemtech Analytical, Corning E.E.L. (Evans), Fisher Jarrell-Ash, G.B.C., Hitachi, Instrument Laboratory, Jenoptik, Unicam, Rank-Hilger, Scintrex, Shandon Southern, Shimadzu, Thermo Jarrell-Ash, Varian Techtron and Zeiss.

Russell Mainstream Supply's 50mm Hollow Cathode Lamps are available for use with Perkin Elmer instruments.

Russell Mainstream Supply's Data Coded Lamps are available in 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 elements.

Russell Mainstream Supply's Multi Coded Lamps are available in 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 elements.


When used within specified limits and in equipment of standard manufacture, our 37mm, 50mm and data coded lamps are warranted to emit spectra for a period of 24 months from date of despatch or 5000mA hours usage, whichever occurs first.

Deuterium Lamps

Russell Mainstream Supply's DeuteriumDeuterium Lamp Lamps are available to fit instruments from many of the following leading manufacturers:

Altex, Aminco, A.B.I., Applied Research Lab, A.C.S., Barspec, Bausch & Lomb, Beckman, Biorad, Biotronic, Buchler, Camag, Camspec, Cecil, Carlo Erba, Coleman, Columbia Science, Dionex, Dupont, EM Science, Erma, GBC, Gilford, Gilson, Hewlett Packard, Hitachi, Hi-Tech, IBM, Isco, Jasco, Jobin Yvon, Joyce Loebl, Knauer, Kontron, Kratos, LDC, Lear Siegler, Linear, LKB, McPherson, Measurex, Meloy Labs, Micromeritics, Milton Roy, Nicolet, Oriel, Optica, Perkin-Elmer, Philips, Pye Unicam, Saitron, Secoman, Shimadzu, Spectra Physics, Thermo Environmental, Tracor, Turner, Varian, Waters and Zeiss.

Lamps are available in various envelope shapes with the emission window in the side wall, projecting from it or as an axial (or 'end-on') configuration. Additionally, the arc aperture can be made in different sizes either as a circle or slot to match the requirements of the original equipment manufacturer.


Russell Mainstream Supply's Deuterium Lamps are guaranteed to operate within the stated performance characteristics over the entire range of 200 - 370nm for a period of 6 months from the date of despatch or the number of hours shown below. This is a full replacement warranty but requires the lamp to be returned to Russell Mainstream Supply for evaluation, post paid. Typical life is defined as the hours at which the lamp intensity falls to 50% of its original value at 280nm. Falling light levels will generally lead to increased noise, however, the point at which the lamp becomes unusable is specific to each application.
