Oozing Goo - The Lava Lamp Syndicate


Shop Link: http://goolamp.com/en/equipment/44-glass-insert-suitable-for-mathmo...

The glass insert - made with heat resistant borosilicate glass - is suitable for all Mathmos Fluidium Lava lamps and is highly recommended.
In the past only a few bases were delivered with such an insert. Unfortunately many Fluidiums are entirely missing these inserts
because they were not included in the shipment, got lost or broke.

The glass insert is very important, it causes that the lamp/bottle gets enough heat. This will then increase the flow while drasticly reducing the heating time.
At the same time, it also keeps the base protected from the inside because the bulb will not be able to heat up the plastic material as much.
It will highly reduce the long-term damages such as melting, deforming or charred browned plastic.

Im Summary:

  • Causes a improved heat transfer to the bottom of the bottle, resulting in a better flow
  • Decreases damage to the base, caused from heat or overheating

Included in delivery:

  • 1 pcs Glass Insert

Now also available in dusted/frosted finish too :-)

Nice to see your reproductions of some of this very hard to find items,,,,,thankyou Marcel!!!

Marcel, what is the performance difference between the clear and frosted, can you see the difference once it is in place in the body of the lamp?  Have an Opal Fluidium and if I can preserve the white clear base, would probably be interested in one of these.

The flie Performance is the same with clear and frosted. 

I have tested different spots of the Base with a Laser thermometer. Heat will go down 10-15 degree Celsius. 

No difference in heat wirh frosted or clear. 

With the frosted the Base changes the brightness a bit and get slightly darker and

the Lightspot of the bulb is more diffuse. 

With the clear glass the Base does not change the look and it looks the same as without glass.
