Compact fiber optic light improves viewing through sanitary sight windows

February 20, 2006

Lumi-View 35™ rigid fiber optic light provides powerful illumination through a sight window without obscuring the view. This new light occupies only ¾ inch of the window’s viewing area while projecting as much as 50 watts of illumination power into a process vessel.

The Lumi-View 35 is especially well suited to sanitary applications when mounted on the MetaClamp® system with its Metaglas® safety window (as shown). As such it provides excellent illumination of a wide variety of process vessels and tanks in either new or existing installations with utmost safety and ease of maintenance. However, the Lumi-View 35 can also be mounted on virtually any sightglass having a viewing area of 2 inches or more. Appropriate mounting hardware is provided.

The unit attaches directly to the sightglass, eliminating the need for separate mounting accomodations. The light housing is made of 316 stainless steel, rated NEMA 4X and IP65. Power is provided through an internal transformer and the user can choose among four power options: 12V, 24V, 120V or 230V. An IR filter can be provided for applications requiring cool light.

The standard control is a momentary off/on switch for ease of operation and extended bulb life. And all units are also equipped with a temperature limit switch assuring personnel safety and operating system integrity.
