World’s Highest Intensity, Self-Ballasted UV-A Lamp
This lamp is a favorite with NDT inspectors because it provides super-high UV-A intensity at an economical price. Its light weight and ergonomic design ensure easy handling for long inspections.
Precision engineered to produce super-high ultraviolet intensity and performance at an economical price. Improved, crack-resistant filter minimizes visible light (less than 2 foot-candles or 20 lux) while maximizing long wave UV irradiance. The BIB-150P easily meets MIL and ASTM specs for FPI and MPI.
Unique engineering polymer housing makes this lamp extremely impact-resistant and dent-proof.
150-watt Built-In-Ballast™ bulb requires no heavy external transformer. As a result, the bulk and weight are gone, yet all the power of a transformer-based unit remains.
Lightweight and ergonomically designed — The hand-held BIB-150P lamp has a total weight of only 3¼ pounds (1.5kg). The lamp head, including the heat guard/stand, measures 9 5/8 inches (24cm) long. The power cord exits directly from the bottom of the contoured pistol-grip handle, resulting in better balance.
Unsurpassed safety and convenience — The vinyl-coated, stainless-steel, wraparound heat guard/stand protects against burns and acts as a lamp stand. Its special insulators absorb mechanical shock to extend bulb and filter life. The 3-wire power cord, made of heat-resistant material, reduces the risk of shock hazard. Because there’s no bulky transformer to drag around and it has an 8-foot (2.5m) power cord, you can use it anywhere.
Choice of bulbs provides unbeatable versatility. The BIB-150P can be supplied with a concentrated spot bulb for an intense UV beam. This bulb produces a nominal steady-state 365nm intensity of 4,500 µW/cm2 at 15 inches (38cm). If wider-area coverage is desired, specify the broad-beam bulb. This bulb produces an intensity of 3,000 µW/cm2 at 15 inches. Both bulbs have an average rated life of 5,000 hours and are specially designed to withstand rough use.
Special Bulb-Saver™ extends bulb life. To greatly reduce replacement costs due to broken bulbs, we include our unique Bulb-Saver at no extra charge. It minimizes bulb movement during handling, reducing the risk of breakage.
Flexible, silicone rubber filter holder is easily removable without tools for bulb or filter replacement.
FREE UV-absorbing glasses included with every lamp.
