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.Spectronics BIB-150P Lamp

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

After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.

The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
