L.J. Star’s Light Illuminates Sanitary Equipment

The Lumi-View 35 fiber optic light from L.J. Star is an illumination system for sanitary processing equipment. It provides up to 50W of illumination while allowing viewing through the same equipment window. This combination of sight and light glass can be used to view the interior of either new or existing sanitary processing equipment.

The Lumi-View 35 attaches directly to the sight glass, eliminating separate mounting of the light source. The housing is made of 316 stainless steel. An internal transformer allows for a 120 volts power supply; however other voltage supplies are available.

Hazardous Area Vibration Sensors Prevent Explosions

Wilcoxon Research has introduced a line of hazardous area vibration sensors with intrinsic safety (IS) certification. IS certification means the sensors can be used where flammable or explosive materials are present without causing electrical sparks or hot spots strong enough to cause ignition of gases or dusts. Explosion proof devices are designed with an enclosure that can withstand an internal explosion and prevent ignition of the surrounding atmosphere.

Hazardous area uses include oil and gas applications; chemical, paint and plastic plants; pharmaceutical manufacturing; steel processing; mining, food and beverage processing; tire and rubber plants; and aircraft and shipboard monitoring.
