AESTHETICALLY PLEASING COMPACT EXPLOSION-PROOF LIGHTS FOR HAZARDOUS (CLASSIFIED) LOCATIONS

Papailias Incorporated is offering an aesthetically pleasing, explosion-proof light that is popular in pharmaceutical and food processing industries. Featuring die cast anodized aluminum parts, the Series SLEX-100 and REX-100 are compact, explosion-proof lights that provide lighting and viewing through a single port. UL-844 and C-UL/CSA C22.2 No 137 listed, these electric lighting fixtures are used in hazardous (classified) locations. Both models use high intensity halogen lamps to provide bright, glare-free illumination of the interior of vessels, tanks, hoppers, silos, mixers, and other normally closed containers in hazardous locations requiring explosion-proof equipment. The illumination port used in conjunction with a standard sightglass offers users many options, including use of a video or TV camera on the free sightglass while the illumination port provides the necessary lighting.

The fixtures can be easily mounted on existing pressure vessel installations by means of brackets provided. The corrosion resistant fixtures include die cast anodized aluminum parts that enhance the appearance of the unit. Castings have heavy walls to withstand internal explosions. These lights will also contain and extinguish the flames of burning gases before they ignite the surrounding atmosphere. All metal joints are either threaded or ground. The glass lens is finely ground borosilicate glass that mates with the precisely machined seat in the body of the fixture to form the seal.

LIGHT/SIGHTGLASS COMBINATION PROVIDES ILLUMINATION AND VIEWINGTHROUGH A SINGLE PORT FOR HAZARDOUS LOCATIONS

Observing the contents in a processing vessel in a hazardous classified location normally requires the use of two sightglasses, one for lighting, the other for viewing. The Series SLEX-100/NW and REX-100/NW eliminates the expense of an additional port and the expense to install it. The explosion-proof UL-844 and C-UL/CSA C22.2 No. 137 listed Series REX-100 and SLEX-100 lighting units and the corresponding Series NW sightglass provide glare-free illumination precisely where you want it - at the viewing port. Units are available with standard nominal viewing diameters of 5, 6, 7, and 9 inches.

Series NW Circular Sightglasses are manufactured from ASME Section VIII acceptable metals. The lower flange can be supplied thicker if required to reinforce the vessel opening in accordance with ASME Section VIII requirements. These sightglasses have standard pressure ratings of 150 PSIG (10.3 Barg) pressure and full vacuum at 300ºF (149ºC) temperature.

SANITARY LIGHT/SIGHTGLASS COMBINATIONS

Papailias offers lighting and sanitary sight glasses in a wide range of combinations. Each configuration has special features and is suited for a particular set of operating circumstances. The Series MSL-100/2" SVTC features a combination of UL-1571 listed lighting fixtures and sanitary sight glasses. Designed for use as an illumination port, this unit is used when a second sight glass is employed to provide viewing. The MSL-100 light fixture, constructed entirely from stainless steel and having full gasketed joints, is ideally suited for those applications where frequent wash down will occur.

Various models are designed for use when vessel space is limited. Some are ideal for use in applications where frequent cleaning of the inside lens surface is necessary. Others are manufactured from ASME Section VIII acceptable metals, making them ideally suited for ASME code stamped vessels. This configuration is particularly suited for use on existing vessels with standard clamp type connections.
