Ultraviolet high intensity (125 watt) self filtered bulb

Does anyone know where GE Engines/UK CASA get their concerns for this type of UV bulb?

Does anyone know of any papers, OH&S (Safety) alerts etc on them (please, no word of mouth or hear say, I need to pull down the articles)?

Some years back there was concern about the amount of white light emitted together with the ultra violet light and today you can purchase a certified or un-certified bulb, many specifications state the minimum amount of white light permitted.

Pay a visit to the website www.ndt-ed.org , penetrant testing, quality and process control, lighting. Testing for possible white light emission of your UV inspection lamp.

Extended Range Variable Wall® Piping Calibration Blocks for Longseam Inspection

This set of two blocks has been specially designed for situations where ultrasonic examination tak
...
es place circumferentially or “around the curve” for applications such as inspection of longseam welds in piping and vessels. Jointly designed by PH Tool and Holloway NDT, the blocks feature side-drilled hole reflectors positioned within novel compound-curves, each with multiple thickness steps. The unique design results in a light and compact form factor, with the largest block weighing just over 15 lbs and spanning just 16 ¾”. Coverage is provided for nominal pipe sizes from 6” to 10” in the small block and 12” to a whopping 56” in the large block. The compound OD curves and multiple wall thicknesses actually exceed ASME requirements, providing exceptional signal response and measurement accuracy. Properly managing beam divergence off the ID and stabilizing beam skew due to probe rocking is essential to maintaining a consistent calibration when inspecting lengthwise on curved surfaces.
