Luminaires illuminate process vessel interiors in pharmaceutical, food processing, and chemical plants.
Some applications require safe, high-intensity illumination for sight glasses, ports, or general applications in hazardous (classified) locations.
Lumiglas luminaires are available with aluminum or stainless steel construction and, depending on the size and wattage, can be equipped with momentary push button switches for safety and longevity. Remote or pneumatic timers and pushbutton switches are also available as Lumiglas light accessories. A new series of Lumiglas LED Luminaires is now available.
In short, the luminaire is the entire device and the lamp is the specific replaceable component that produces light.
“A lamp is a light source that is placed in a luminaire!”
A light fixture (US English), light fitting (UK English), or luminaire is an electrical device used to create artificial light by use of an electric lamp. All light fixtures have a fixture body and a light socket to hold the lamp and allow for its replacement.
Sight Glass Lights
Often process vessels have two sight glass windows: one port for viewing and a separate port for the light. The light is typically mounted directly over the light port. To save cost or space, some vessels combine light and sight at one window. The light is typically mounted with a bracket, although sight glasses are available with integrated lights (combo style).
