    Tritium Lights - Light Forever

    Tritium Lights - Light Forever

    They seem sold out right now, but I believe they are available on ebay




    Ordinary Hydrogen ( H1 ) is also known as Protium, the nucleus of which contains one Proton.
    Hydrogen also has two isotopes, Deuterium ( H2 ) which has a Proton and a Neutron in its nucleus,
    and Tritium ( H3 ) which has one Proton and two Neutrons in its nucleus.
    Deuterium is a stable isotope just like ordinary Hydrogen (Protium).
    Tritium however is an unstable/ radioactive isotope of Hydrogen.
    High pressure Tritium gas is sealed inside these small borosilicate glass vials, that continuously emit low energy Beta radiation (electrons). These electrons impact a special phosphor coating on the inside of the tube, which in turn emits a visible GREEN glow.

    Each Tritium Light Source is a laser sealed borosilicate glass vial which has been coated internally with phosphor. In one single process, the unit is sealed by a CO2 laser and injected with gaseous Tritium. The low energy electrons emitted by the Tritium, excite the phosphor and this creates a safe, low level light without filaments or heat dissipation and no risk of fire or explosion.

    These low level light sources have unique properties, they are unaffected by water, oil and most corrosive materials. They will continuously glow, and will do so for 10 to 20 years. They are totally fail-safe and maintenance free.

    They require no external power source or exposure to light in order to work.

    Tritium Light Sources go through a labor intensive manufacturing process with quality control being a dominant consideration. They are 100% inspected for dimensions, brightness, temperature, thermal shock and Tritium leakage. Random sample testing is performed continually for discoloration, brightness decay, reduced pressure and vibration effects.

    The glass tube is sealed in a hexagonal shaped clear acrylic housing which makes them virtually indestructible. Only a very small quantity of Tritium gas in sealed within the tube... and the low-level Beta radiation cannot penetrate the inner glass tube, nor the thick acrylic housing.

    They are completely safe for all uses.

    Should you actually manage to break the inner tube (by smashing the it with a hammer or similar impact), the tiny amount of Tritium gas will simply disperse and the unit will cease to function.

      Great for snagging tripwires, overhead commo lines, and fishing out objects. Lots of uses and kinda unusual.

      Good stuff Diesel, I really like that Glo Tube :)

      Someday someone may kill you with your own gun, but they should have to
      beat you to death with it because it is empty.

      The faster you finish the fight, the less shot you will get.

        Thanks man appreciate, i think this could be a neat thread.

        Re: your hook, i'm assuming that's not load bearing.

          Nope, they say it can hold up to 350 lbs in informal testing. I have tried the larger one to help me down a steep incline and it held up fine.

          Not designed for body weight, but does well for what it was made for... it is kinda one of those things that might come in handy one of these days along with a length of para cord :)

            Too bad it is bright orange, but a neat idea for a quick way to get out of the weather for a quick meal or emergency planning session. This one is a four man...there is a bigger, eight man one on the site too.
