Westbury, New York - Spectronics Corporation has announced major design improvements to their industry-leading BIB-150P ultraviolet inspection lamp. This hand-held UV lamp, with its unique 150-watt Built-In-Ballast(TM) bulb, is the world's top-selling unit for air-conditioning and refrigera`tion leak detection. The new improvements to the BIB-150P make it better than ever.
A new housing, constructed of a super-strong engineering polymer that is dent-proof and impact-resistant, replaces the previous metal housing. The BIB-150P lamp's new filter is more crack-resistant, and is now further protected by a flexible, silicone rubber filter holder that is easily removable for bulb and filter maintenance. The ergonomically designed handle is repositioned for better balance, easier handling and reduced hand fatigue over long periods of use. The upgraded BIB-150P lamp is UL listed, CE approved and CSA approved. UV-absorbing safety glasses are provided free with every lamp.
The BIB-150P lamp pinpoints all air conditioning and refrigeration leaks. The user simply scans the system with the UV beam of the BIB-150P after the appropriate AR-GLOÂ® UV-fluorescent leak detection additive has been introduced and allowed to circulate. Since the additive collects at all leak sites, the lamp will immediately show the precise location of every leak with a bright fluorescent glow. The additive safely remains in the system until the refrigeration oil is changed, so future leaks are found as soon as the system is reinspected with the UV lamp.
