After consulting with numerous NDT experts and inspectors, Magnaflux is expanding their line of LED UV lamps for non-destructive testing with the ST700 overhead inspection LED UV light, which is specifically designed to eliminate or prevent some of the most common challenges around UV illumination in fluorescent NDT testing.
Designed and tested by NDT professionals, the ST700 speeds up fluorescent NDT processes while also improving inspection quality with an ultra-wide, 12 x 24 in / 30 x 61 cm UV-A beam when mounted 39 in / 1 m from the inspection surface. The ST700’s best-in-industry UV-A inspection area allows inspectors to quickly examine parts while minimizing part handling, especially with larger test parts, and the high intensity UV illumination helps indications stand out bright and clear for faster detection.
The ST700 offers the best beam-area value of any stationary flood LED UV lamp on the market with a maximum inspection area of 22 x 25 in / 55 x 64 cm with UV-A over 1,000 μW/cm2. This ultra-wide beam meets ASTM and RRES requirements for UV-A illumination so inspectors can be confident to see every indication with less part handling.
Providing 7,000 μW/cm2 of high intensity UV-A light at 15 in / 38 cm, the ST700 makes fluorescent penetrant and magnetic particles stand out bright and clear for high-contrast visibility and easy detection. The high intensity LEDs allow the ST700 to be mounted up to 36 in / 90 cm from the inspection surface and still maintain UV-A over 1,000 μW/cm2.
The ST700’s LED array is designed to cast uniformly bright illumination, and the stable intensity of the LEDs meets the ASTM E3022 and Rolls-Royce RRES 90061 standards. The custom UV-A filters reduce glare and increase fluorescent contrast to make indications easier to see.
Engineered specifically for the rigors of NDT and manufacturing environments in order to reduce on-the-job downtime, this stationary floor UV light is fully sealed to prevent dust or water damage.
