New BIRNS Corona Major™

New 50,000 Lumen BIRNS Corona Major™ Floodlight
Delivers Massive Light Output With Minimal Maintenance

Oxnard, CA— BIRNS, Inc., an ISO 9001:2008 certified global leader in the design and manufacturing of high performance lights for demanding nuclear applications, has launched the new BIRNS Corona Major™. An exceptionally durable and dependable tungsten halogen fuel pool lighting fixture, it delivers 3200K white light, emits 50,000 lumens, and is easily decontaminated. It requires no heavy ballast to operate, and is designed for underwater use in areas with high levels of radiation and nuclear contamination, with a rugged, all stainless steel inside-containment construction. Like all BIRNS nuclear lighting systems, it’s engineered for the ultimate in worker safety—it relamps tool-free in 60 seconds and all edges are smooth and rounded. Tailored for seamless general area lighting in new and spent fuel pools, it is also perfect for localized inspection and for in-core use during refuel operations. Plus, this powerful system is ideal for long-term illumination of fuel pools and transfer canals and for other large-scale activities.

The BIRNS Corona Major features a parabolic reflector and a tempered borosilicate glass lens, and its lamp operates inside a dry, one-atmosphere chamber, which is further protected by rugged polycarbonate. It includes a robust mounting yoke, and can secure to a selection of different BIRNS mounting poles. Its housing is free flooding for high-efficiency water cooling, yet is compatible with all commercial grade Class A GFCI’s (ground-fault circuit interrupters). The system incorporates a BIRNS subsea grade stainless steel connector, so that the power cord can be quickly detached, without tools, and includes a lamp and a Lexan protector. It features instant ON/OFF and hot-restrike capability, with complete dimming capability (0-100%).
