Blaster Reflector 6-inch (150mm) Air-Cooled Vertical Lamp Reflector
TheBlaster Reflector Contains:
1 x Blaster Reflector (with 15ft power cable and IEC connection), 2 x V-Hangers
How theBlaster Reflector Works:
The Blaster Reflector is quite different among air-cooled reflectors,it has a vertically mounted lamp and custom-designed parabolic reflective inner. The light-spread is as close to flawless as is likely possible,it has an even coverage across the canopy, and no hot-spots. To achieve this, the Blaster's reflector panels have a unique shape with two separate tone patterns: the sidewalls are a smooth, highly polished surface, and within these sidewalls sits a hammertone X-shape, creating a parabolic effect. Not only does this design provide an excellent light spread, it also helps with cooling. When the unit is air-cooled using separately available equipment, air is blown into the reflector without blowing directly over the lamp. This helps to remove heat from the grow area without lowering the temperature of the lamp itself. All that you need to help the blaster perform at its best is a 6” (150mm) duct fan, two duct clips and a piece of ducting.
Included with the Blaster are two V-hangers that can be fitted into matching slots either side of the unit. With the V-hangers in place, you can then hang theBlaster Reflector in the centre of your grow area from a secure place. Use Rope Ratchets rather than Easy Rolls, as they are better suited to accommodating the Blasters’s weight. Take care when fitting the bulb into place, that you dont touch the bulbs surface with your bare hands, use a cloth to put it in place as the oils from your hands can easily transfer to the glass and either cause it to explode or reduce its life.
Use duct clips to fit 150mm (6”) ducting to both of the air inlet / outlet points. How this aspect is completed will depend on your particular set-up, but it is recommended that, if possible, the extractor fan should be connected to the inlet side of theBlaster Reflector, so that it blows cold air through it rather than sucking hot air out, which may reduce the lifespan of your extractor fan..
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 or the glass underneath with anything such as fingers or plants as this may cause severe burns or fires.
