Re: Reason for "rattle" in some Triton tubes

In a correspondence from GE-Thorn (manufacturers of the Triton Fluorescent
tubes), they have responded that they have introduced another technological
breakthrough by adding a catalytic pellet into their lamps (tubes).  The
solid state zinc alloy catalyst delivers even better, more consistent
performance from their high specification lighting range.  The other major
spin-off of the solid state catalyst is that it makes these fluorescent
lamps the most environmentally friendly on the market.  "You can very
easily tell if a tube contains the new catalytic pellet, because it rattles
when you shake it!"  The new technology will be phased into the complete
Triton, Beauty Light and Blue Moon lighting range over the next few years.
