UV Leak Detection Lamp offers spot-beam, broad-beam coverage
Spectronics Corporation offers BIB-150P UV Inspection Lamp, detects industrial leak;, concentrated spot bulb, broad-beam bulb provide versatility
Spectronics Corporation produces the BIB-150P ultraviolet inspection lamp. This hand-held UV lamp, with its unique 150-watt Built-In-Ballast bulb, is ideal for pinpointing industrial leaks such as oil, hydraulics, refrigerant, gasoline, diesel fuel or water.
Simply add the appropriate fluorescent dye and let it circulate with the specific lubricant. The dye will escape with the host fluid wherever there is a leak. When the system is scanned with the BIB-150P, the dye will glow brightly at the leakage area.
The housing on the BIB-150P is constructed of a super-strong engineering polymer that is reportedly dent-proof and impact-resistant. The lamp’s filter is crack-resistant and is protected by a filter holder that is easily removable for bulb and filter maintenance. The ergonomically designed handle is positioned for better balance, easier handling and reduced hand fatigue over long periods of use.
The unit can be supplied with a concentrated spot bulb for an intense UV beam that produces a nominal steady-state 365nm intensity of 4,500 µW/cm² at 15 in/38 cm. If wider-area coverage is needed, the broad-beam spot bulb should be used; this bulb produces an intensity of 4,000 µW/cm² at 15 in/38 cm. Both bulbs have an average rated life of 5,000 hours and can withstand rough use.

Annual Salary Survey
Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.
There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
