DuraStar from Reliance® Makes Boiler Gage Reading Safe and Simple
Clark-Reliance® proudly introduces DuraStar, an innovative, new backlighting unit for transparent level gages that utilizes bright and powerful LED lights to make reading boiler water level gages safe and simple in practically any setting or location.
This state-of-the-art device, designed specifically for use with most industrial, auxiliary and power boilers, is incredibly robust and easily stands up to the harsh environments of boiler houses.
DuraStar features a unique design that includes amber colored LED lights that are precisely angled-up to light the waterline (meniscus) from underneath. The result is a "starburst" effect to the operator - the boiler water level is at the starburst. This makes the task of reading the gage fast, easy and safe.
With the superior visibility DuraStar provides, it's an ideal choice for applications where mounting very high or in dark / dreary places is required. The DuraStar is also field-upgradable to any existing Reliance level gage - eliminating exposure for bulb changes every 3-4 months. DuraStar's cool-to-the-touch LEDs are rated for 10 years of continuous duty with minimal energy use.
