Process Light PPC-R50
The heart of PPCs R50 light is an illuminator which has provisions for attaching a variety of sanitary couplings. The face plates are PPCs special fused-glass sanitary DuraPorts and are capable of direct connection to the process vessel. All light sources can operate continuously, without the need for shutoff timers or thermal cutoffs. Available lamps include 20-, 35-, and 50-watt units operating at either 12 or 120 volts. Each lamp is self-contained, with a built-in reflector.
A 21-watt high intensity discharge (HID) version is also available, with light output equivalent to a 65-watt halogen lamp. This self-contained system includes a ballast that is sealed (potted) in an enclosure (the ballast must be located within 24 inches of the illuminator). The supply voltage for the ballast is 24 VDC. A 24-volt power supply is also available from PresSure Products to power this unit, or users may furnish their own 24 VDC source.
The R50 illuminator can also be used as a stand-alone light, with a conventional glass face such as for lighting a vessel through an existing sight glass. These lights are water resistant but not explosion-proof.
Materials of Construction:
These illuminators are constructed primarily with aluminum parts; the process interface is a fused glass sanitary fitting of stainless steel and soda-lime or borosilicate glass.
