Carbide lamps consisted of two metal containers, one on top of the other. Carbide was the bottom one, whereas the top one contained water. The carbide container had a pipe going out of it with a burner at the end. At the bottom of the water container there was a small hole through which water dripped slowly onto the carbide.

Carbide lamps consisted of two metal containers, one on top of the other. Carbide was the bottom one, whereas the top one contained water. The carbide container had a pipe going out of it with a burner at the end. At the bottom of the water container there was a small hole through which water dripped slowly onto the carbide. This device automatically maintained a constant pressure of acetylene in the lamp.
This lamp comes from one of the Olkusz mines. It was donated to the museum in 1986 by engineer Władysława Waś, former employee of the “Olkusz” mine.
