Light Fittings & Cameras

Light Fittings & Cameras

Our sight glass light products (also called” luminaires”) illuminate process vessel interiors in pharmaceutical, food processing, and chemical plants. Available in standard and explosion-proof {ex-lights} housings as well as halogen or LED designs.

Please note:

Halogen bulbs are being gradually discontinued. This is the final stage of a European Union directive (EC 244/2009) that has progressively banned less efficient light sources, with the aim of improving energy efficiency and cutting carbon emissions across the EU. Halogen light bulbs fall foul of the regulations as they use much more energy than alternatives such as LEDs. They also have a relatively short lifespan of around 2,000 hours – approximately two years when used for around three hours per day.

The output of a typical halogen bulb is 15% light and 85% heat, with the heat coming from the infrared light the bulb produces, which can’t be seen by the naked eye. Unlike halogens, LED luminaires produce 55.6 lumens per watt of electricity consumed while producing little or no heat. In contrast with halogen lights, which have fragile filaments, LED’s are vibration and impact resistant, offering dramatically longer lifetimes for lower maintenance costs and fewer process interruptions.
