    I've got an eprom eraser that has suffered a broken tube in transit. The
    tube is a screw type thread. Are these a standard thing and if so can
    anybody suggest a supplier in the UK? (i've had a google and can't find

    Any help much appreciated.

  2. These are also used as sterilizing lamps, check with fluorescent lamp
    suppliers - they should be able to help you find a source.

    Most eprom erasers are shortwave UV lamps.. Bare mercury arcs that
    have no phosphors on the walls. Any fluorescent lamp that has this
    kind of characteristic will work, assuming that you had a fluorescent
    lamp in the first place. If not, then I'm not sure what you did have.

    The lamps are used (in the US) for germicidal use, and are NOT to be
    looked at directly. The same shortwave UV that kills germs will do a
    nasty (and permanent) job on your optic nerves. Hence all the

    One possible place to get them would be a store that sells
    mineralogical supplies, they often have UV lamps that emit shortwave
    and longwave UV to aid in identifying minerals. You'd be searching
    for a replacement, of course.

    Failing that, an inexpensive fixture, a light tight box, and salvaging
    the timer from the old one would enable you to make one yourself.

    I'm not familiar with fluorescent lamps that have screw bases, though.
