The Spectroline BIB-150P UV lamp is appropriate for use in nondestructive testing, quality control, leak detection and UV curing. The handheld inspection lamp offers super-high ultraviolet intensity. It meets or exceeds MIL and ASTM specifications for FPI and MPI, and is UL listed, CE approved and CSA approved. The lamp produces a steady-state 365-nanometer intensity of 4,800 microwatts per centimeter squared at 15 inches (38 centimeters). Its bulb has an average rated life of 5,000 hours. The lamp’s housing is made out of a polymer that is dent-proof and impact-resistant. In addition, a proprietary 150-watt bulb eliminates the need for an external transformer. The total weight of the lamp is 3¼ pounds (1.5 kilograms). The handle stays cool and is ergonomically designed for better balance. An improved, crack-resistant filter reduces visible light (less than 2 foot-candles or 20 lux) while maximizing long-wave UV irradiance.
