New Lenox UV borescopes for the hard to reach area NDT borescope inspection

Lenox Instrument Company's new line of Ultra-Violet (UV) Borescopes are designed to be used in non-destructive testing (NDT) dye penetration tests for remotely detecting surface flaws and cracks in hard to reach areas of mechanical components normally inaccessible to visual inspection. These tests use a penetrant fluorescent dye that is applied to the surface to be viewed and allowed to penetrate into surface defects and remain in defects after cleaning where it can be observed when it fluoresces under the ultra-violet light from the UV Borescope. A Ultra-Violet Borescopes is commonly used for quality control, maintenance, and finished product evaluation to identify cracks or defects in a turbine engine, aerospace part, aircraft inspection, research and development laboratory and other manufacturing facilities.

Lenox UV Rigid Borescopes can be used to identify details and flaws as small as 0.001 inch. With a variety of probes (direct, forward oblique, to-the-side or retrospective), magnifications and fields of view available, any type of cavity can be easily and effectively probed, on any budget. UV Rigid Borescopes feature rugged stainless steel construction; they are available in diameters from 4 mm (0.157 in.) to 10 mm (0.395 in.), and lengths from 17.8 cm (7 in.) to 160 cm (63 in.).

The Lenox UV VideoFlex series Videoscope is an easy-to-use, high-resolution, remote imaging system featuring 4-way tip articulation and an integrated control / display hand piece with a 6.4-inch LCD display. It features a tight bending radius and a totally steerable 4-way, 150° articulated tip that allows easy manipulation around corners, through bends and past blockages. The working portion of the scope is available in diameters of 6.0 mm (.236 in.) or 8.4 mm (.330 in.), with lengths to 7.5 m (24.6 feet). - more -

Lenox UV Sectional Borescopes are modular in design and allow the user to add extender sections to provide long working lengths up to 120 feet (36.6 m). Lenox sectional, extendable borescopes are available in diameters of 23, 35, 45, and 70 mm and deliver uncompromising image resolution to allow identification of flaws as small as 0.0005 in. Various viewing heads like right angle, bottoming, retrospective, forward oblique and circumference are available for Lenox sectional, extendable borescopes. All Lenox sectional, extendable borescopes can be provided with a Lenox color video minicamera that attaches to the eyepiece and produces crisp, clear, high-resolution, images.

Lenox UV Borescopes and Videoscopes come with a high-power 200W UV light source supplying ultra-violet light centered at 365 nm wavelength. It features a white light/UV light selection knob and mechanical knob for brightness adjustment.

Lenox UV Borescope and Videocope images can be viewed and recorded for archiving on either a digital MP4, 20 GB hard drive video recorder/player with a high-resolution 7 inch display or on a digital video recorder/player with a high-resolution 7 inch display that stores images on 8mm tape or memory card.

Each UV Borescope is designed, manufactured and serviced in-house by Lenox Instrument Company, and is backed by a two-year warranty.
