LJ Star, a supplier of sight glasses, sight flow indicators and other process observation equipment, introduces a new vessel light option in its LumiStar line – the ESL 53LED EX. Made from stainless steel, and with an extremely small overall size, the explosion-proof light offers bright, energy efficient light for sight glass and process lighting.
The ESL 53LED EX reportedly offers three distinct advantages:
- Stainless steel construction provides excellent resistance to corrosion.
- Its ATEX explosion-proof rating means it can handle difficult environmental conditions.
- Having both of those in a small design is a major new option for many industries, especially pharmaceutical and nutraceutical, chemical and food and beverage installations.
The main light housing measures 53mm (2.08 inches) in diameter by 165mm (6.5 inches) long, substantially smaller than other explosion-proof lights, according to the company. The light comes with a hinged bracket or a sanitary flanged adapter and is compatible with round sight glass fittings as well as screw-type sight glass fittings with multiple mounting options. The LED light provides 400-500 lumens with a light color of 5700K, while only drawing seven watts of power.
