BIRNS Dual Kelvin

Description:

BIRNS Dual Kelvin™

The BIRNS Dual Kelvin™, BIRNS Model 2501, is the world’s simplest, most durable and dependable fuel pool lighting fixture. This powerful light is widely used for long-term illumination of fuel pools and transfer canals, reactor cavity illumination during fuel movement and other large-scale activities. Its well engineered design makes it brilliant, easily decontaminated, and relampable in 60 seconds with a choice of wide, medium or narrow beam lamps. This system provides 32,000+ lumens with 120V/1,000W lamps with 4,000 hour lamp lives. The easy to use, lightweight unit features instant on/off and hot-restrike capability with no ballast necessary. Its lamp protector is Lexan polycarbonate, the most impact-resistant of all thermoplastics—more than 30 times the impact resistance of safety glass. This proven system provides more than 300% the radiation tolerance of acrylic.

Includes two Model 5801 BIRNS Kelvin lights (with choice of beam angle), a 1.5m stainless steel mounting pole, and a dual power cable assembly (standard length: 15m from top of pole). Custom lengths of pole and cable are available.

Applications:

Thousands of BIRNS Dual Kelvins are trusted in nuclear power plants worldwide, as they are ideal for long-term illumination of fuel pools and transfer canals, and extensively used in reactor cavity illumination during fuel movement or other large-scale activities.
