    I would like to know if anyone can explain how to determinate the
    exact amount of mercury into a bulb of a medium pressure mercury lamp
    (curing lamp)?

    I have only information about the bulb (diameter/lenght) and
    electrical data (voltage RMS, ignition voltage, current RMS).

  2. What you are asking is very manufacture dependend. It also depends on
    the length, diameter, and required wavelength. There is also some zinc
    used. The common types of gasses used are argon, xenon, and neon.
    There are lamps that also employ of the rare type of gases as well.
    The combinations and relative quantities are what will determine the
    wavelength desired.

    If you go to look under light source, and you
    should be able to find a lot of good technical information there.

    You can try to directly contact some of the manufactures of UV lamps
    for the most accurate details. They may not give out the exact
    amounts and ratios to you, to protect their particular design. But
    they will give out a general type of information, when it come to the
    precision of their designs.
