The Hanovia Chemical and Manufacturing Company has submitted for the Council's consideration a recent addition to its line called the Model "C" Kromayer Lamp. The company claims that this lamp is designed especially for irradiation of various body cavities. Several sizes and shapes of burners are available (CR-2, CN-3, CS-4 and CU-5). The burners are of transparent fused quartz, shaped in the form of applicators, closed at one end, and contain mercury and certain rare gases such as krypton, neon and xenon. At the other end they terminate in hard rubber holders 6½ inches long and 1¼ inches in diameter. The electrodes and and lead-in terminals are enclosed in the holders, and each burner and holder has its own flexible connector with terminal pins attached to the electrical control box. The box contains a step-up transformer and regulating choke coil.
