Clark-Reliance Corporation has announced the introduction of its Jerguson® LumaStar™ EPL-316 Offshore Illuminator. This illuminator provides high contrast, white LED light for any transparent glass level gage, delivering superior gage visibility day or night. With its all-316 stainless steel construction, the LumaStar Illuminator is ideal for offshore or other severe service environments. Its LED lights are essentially maintenance-free and are rated to approximately 100,000 hours – over 10 years of service. The EPL-316 is the latest addition to the LumaStar Illuminator product line, which has proven its reliability since introduced over 10 years ago.

“ Color is critical for lighting level gages,” said Joe Collura, Jerguson Product Manager. “The LumaStar’s white LEDs provide superior contrast and safety compared to green or amber LED lighting. Colored LED light has been shown to create dangerous situations in certain conditions where the operator cannot easily distinguish fluid level, such as when fluid level is in between glass sections of a level gage, or when the gage glass is particularly dirty. The exceptionally bright white light of LumaStar illuminator removes any doubt as to the fluid level for the operator.”
The LumaStar Illuminator is ideal for hazardous locations. It is approved for use in Class I, Div 1, Group B, C & D and Zone 1 & 2 environments. A single explosion-proof power supply with intrinsically safe lighting circuit can service illuminators up to 58" long, which translates to up to four size nine gage sections or up to five size seven gage sections. The illuminators are field-upgradeable to fit any glass gage.
