below example shows the CO2 produced by 100 Lamps
(4200 hours = 14 hrs daily
M-F & some Sat/Sun hrs for cleaning/OT)
Carbon Dioxide for 100 T12 40w Fluorescent
(40w x 4200 hrs x 100)/1000 x .0008=13.44 TONS/yr
For 100 T8 32w Fluorescent = 10.75 TONS/yr
For 100 T5 28w Fluorescent = 9.41 TONS/yr
For 100 15w LED = only 5.04 TONS/yr

Easy for electricians to
replace existing Fluorescent T8 to LED T8. No driver or
ballast required. Operating voltage: AC110-277V 50/60Hz.
Currently, the most efficacious white LEDs can perform similarly
to fluorescent lamp. However, LED efficacy doesn’t tell the
whole story. Good T8 LED replacement lamps shall combine high
efficacy and brand LEDs, excellent thermal management, and
sophisticated optical design. Conversely, poorly-designed T8 LED
replacement lamps using even the best LEDs may be no more
efficient or no longer life over existing T8 fluorescent lamps.
One of the most basic decision factors for T8
LED replacement lamp selection is longevity of the lamp.
However, the lighting industry has very limited direct
experience with long-term performance and reliability of T8 LED
In summary, T8 LED replacement lamp life is
not identical to estimated LED life. T8 LED replacement lamp
life is also a function of the power supply, operating
temperatures, thermal management, materials and electrical and
material interfaces. How can T8 LED replacement lamp reliability
be assessed? Some things to look for:
- Use of high quality LEDs from brand
suppliers who publish reliability data.
- Superior heat sink design to dissipate
heat, minimizing T8 LED replacement lamp temperature (for
example, board, case, or solder joint temperature) as low as
- Optical specification from independent
testing laboratory or manufacturer in-house testing.
- Warranty offered by the manufacturer should
be at least comparable to traditional fluorescent lamp for the
application under consideration.
- Any test data available about longer term
performance of T8 LED replacement lamp.
Common T8 LED replacement lamp
Common T8 LED replacement lamp features a
linear array of 5mm DIP LEDs (suitable for indication
applications, ranging from 60 to 400 LEDs per lamp), with
airtight clear tubular plastic or glass covers as heat sink and
diffuser, and integrated driver (non-isolated constant voltage
type). As plastic and glass are not good heat conduction
materials, this kind of design will cause heat buildup inside
the tube, depreciate lumen quickly and shorten useful life of T8
LED replacement lamp.
In contrast, DURA-BRIGHT™ T8 LED replacement
lamp features a linear array of imported high quality SMD LEDs
(ranging from 30 to 88 LEDs per lamp), with patented design of
aluminum housing as heat sink, stripped PC cover as diffuser and
UL listed integrated driver (isolated constant current type).
