A new 32-page catalog from Spectronics details a wide variety of black light (UV-A) and blue light inspection lamps that detect and identify surface and subsurface flaws. These products are used for nondestructive testing practices such as visual inspection, liquid penetrant and magnetic particle inspection. The catalog contains information on UV-A inspection lamps and super-high intensity UV HID lamps. The new OPTIMAX 450 and TRITAN 450 blue light sources are ideal for quick pre-inspection or screening of fluorescent particles in operating conditions with ambient light. The OPTIMAX 450 is a lightweight, cordless, rechargeable flashlight with a thin-film dichroic filter lens that improves contrast and fluorescent response. The TRITAN 450 lamp provides wide area coverage and allows easy access into tight areas. The AccuMAX digital radiometers measure UV-A intensity and visible light output. 800.274.8888, www.spectroline.com
