How the Large Cool Shade With Euro Reflector Works:
The Large Cool Shade 6-inch (150mm) With Euro Reflector is a heat resistant glass tube containing an E40 lamp-holder and a reflector-panel. Air is blown through the cool-shade by a 6-inch (150mm) extractor fan connected by 6-inch (150mm) ducting (fan and ducting not supplied) which is then expelled outside of the grow-room. The air blowing through the shade directly cools the lamp and removes the hot air inside the cool tube. In this way the glass of the cool-tube only gets warm only, not hot. This allows the reflector to be placed closer to your lamps and helps to prevent the air in your grow-room from getting too warm. The Large Cool Shade incorporates a large Euro Reflector over the top to give better reflectivity and more even light foot-print.
How to Use the Large Cool Shade with Euro Reflector:
The Large Cool Shade 6-inch (150mm) With Euro Reflector is designed for use with any 400W or 600W HPS or MH lamp. Simply hang the reflector over the centre of the grow-space at an appropriate height using easy rolls or jack chain. Holding your lamp with a clean cloth insert it into the E40 bulb-holder in the Cool Shade and screw it in very firmly. Connect your 6-inch (150mm) extractor fan to one end of the cool shade via 6-inch (150mm) ducting and clamp it in place. It is recommended that, if possible, the extractor fan should be connected on the inlet side of the Cool Tube so that it blows cold air through it rather than on the outlet side sucking hot air out, which may reduce the lifespan of your extractor fan. 6-inch (150mm) ducting can be connected to the other end of the Cool Tube to vent the hot air out of the grow room. When the fan is running and air is flowing through the Cool Tube, the power lead can be connected into an appropriate ballast for your HPS/MH type lamp and switched on.
Please Note: HID lamps should never be switched on unless a fan is moving air through the Cool Tube or overheating will result in damage to the reflector and lamp.
If a larger diameter fan is connected to this shade via a reducer, the high air-flow may cool your lamp too much which will alter it's colour output spectrum, making it much less effective. Only use a 6-inch (150mm) fan with this Cool Shade Reflector.
Warning: When HID lamps are switched on they run extremely hot. As with all high pressure sodium and metal halide bulbs it is necessary to avoid touching the lamp with anything such as fingers or plants as this may cause severe burns or fires. In particular avoid sprays or liquids coming into contact with the lamp as this may cause premature failure or even an explosion.
