Lumiglas®

Lumiglas – the observation of process operations taking place 

inside pressure and vacuum vessels, tanks, reactors, silo units, filters and other plant demands perfect illumination and unhindered visual check. 

that is what lumiglas offers.

Lumiglas stands for sight and light ; for ideal visual control.

These inspections are carried out either by the process operative directly on the spot or without the need to access the plant, by means of the Lumiglas VISULEX Ex camera system. The combination of light and sight glass, created by Papenmeier- the first of many Lumiglas patents- is the ideal low cost solution for the user: the additional cut-out for a second sight port in the case of separate ports is avoided.

More security- less cost!

Lumiglas is internationally renowned and used by leading companies worldwide, particularly in explosion hazardous areas of the chemical, bio and pharmaceutical industries: mineral oil refining as well as foodstuffs and beverage industries, nucleur power plant, machine construction, electro industry, water treatment and shipbuilding.

Explosion protection

As of July 2003, organizations in EU must follow the directives to protect employees from explosion risk in areas with an explosive atmosphere.

There are two ATEX directives (one for the manufacturer and one for the user of the equipment):

  • the ATEX 95 equipment directive 94/9/EC, Equipment and protective systems intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres;
  • the ATEX 137 workplace directive 99/92/EC, Minimum requirements for improving the safety and health protection of workers potentially at risk from explosive atmospheres.

The ATEX 94/9/EU that is dedicated to the manufacturer has changed. Always applicable up to 19 April 2016 the ATEX 94/9/EC will be removed and replaced by a new directive.

This new ATEX directive was published on Saturday 29 March 2014, under the new reference : Directive 2014/34/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 26 February 2014 on the harmonisation of the laws of the Member States relating to equipment and protective systems intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres (recast) Text with EEA relevance – Official Journal of the European Union L 96 from 29/03/2014.

This new ATEX directive 2014/34/EU will be mandatory for manufacturer on 20 April 2016 as is stated in article 44 of the directive.

Promised for a long time, this new ATEX directive has been published together with 8 other directives in the frame of NEW LEGISLATIVE FRAMEWORK (NLF) ALIGNMENT PACKAGE (Implementation of the Goods Package). It was the subject of a “COMMUNICATION FROM THE COMMISSION TO THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND THE COUNCIL” for the Alignment of ten technical harmonisation directives to Decision No 768/2008/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 9 July 2008 on a common framework for the marketing of products, in Brussels, 21.11.2011 under reference COM(2011) 763 final.

Lumiglas Ex Motor Drive EMA I-Ex EEx d IIC T5 / Biogas Sight Glass with Light, Wiper and Camera System

Versatile, high-performance Ex-class motor drive with compact dimensions for numerous applications

  • Special advantages of the Lumiglas Ex-class motor drive:
    Especially in environments that require the remote  monitoring of processes in reactors (e. g. biogas plants), ex-type cameras are frequently mounted on sight glasses, enabling process engineers to observe what is going on in the vessel from a central control room, which is frequently located at some distance from the reactor itself.

This eliminates the need for physical presence at a reactor, frequently entailing safety-relevant situations made more difficult by adverse environmental conditions, e. g. bad weather.

In certain processes, problems can arise if there are deposits of the substance in the reactor on the sight glass screen, thus making it difficult or even impossible for the camera to view the process. This can be remedied by using one of the proven wipers from the Lumiglas range: SW I and SWII. These wipers are normally operated by hand when the observer wants to inspect the reactor.

In many cases, however, the remote observation of reactors, e. g. via Lumiglas camera technology, is mandatory, making it essential to install a motor-driven wiper that can be actuated remotely from the control room.

The Ex motor drive EMA I-Ex has been developed specifically for such applications.

Because remote observation is mainly carried out in potentially
explosive environments, an Ex-class motor drive is now available in addition to the Ex camera

 

  • The Ex-class motor drive is mainly intended for operating wipers on sight glasses and is suitable for short- or long-term operation.
  • Especially in environments that require the remote monitoring of processes in reactors
  • Compact overall size; high turning moment; excellent motor power; low energy consumption.
  • Approved for use in potentially explosive environments, Zones 1 and 2 as well as 21 and 22
  • Approved for use in ambient temperatures of between -20°C and +50°C
  • Type of protection: Terminal connection and motor enclosure IP68, motor shaft IP54

Small dimensions, great effectiveness:

The Ex-class motor drive is designed for both short-term and continuous  operations.

All development targets have been achieved:

  • Compact overall size; high turning moment; excellent motor
    power; low energy consumption.
  • The Ex motor drive is thus ideally suited for operating, for
    instance, Lumiglas screen wipers:
    a) SW I (the wiper blade axis passes through a hole in the
    sight glass) – for low pressure
    b) SW II (the wiper blade axis is operated from the side
    through a hole in the sight glass fitting by means of a
    flexible shaft) – for higher pressure

Combination with a spray facility is also possible.

Structure of compact unit:

  • The unit is made up of a DC electric motor with a flanged drive and special coupling by way of which (e. g.) the wiper axis of a screen wiper is turned.
