USA: BIRNS Launches UV Lighting Systems for Commercial Diving and ROV Market

BIRNS, Inc., an ISO 9001:2008 certified industry leader in the design and manufacture of unique lines of high performance lights, connectors, penetrators and custom cable assemblies for some of the planet’s most demanding environments, has just launched a new line of Ultra Violet (UV) lighting systems for the commercial diving and ROV market.

The all new BIRNS Snooperette-UV™ and the BIRNS Aquila-UV™ bring incredibly versatile new options to a wide range of Magnetic Particle Inspection (MPI) and Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) projects.

BIRNS has been delivering innovations that have helped shape the technology of the subsea and commercial diving markets since 1954, including the revolutionary BlackBIRN™, the world’s first self-contained underwater MPI system, which allows a single diver to detect oil leaks and cracks or weld defects in underwater steel structures, and the BlackBIRN II™ for ROV use. With the new BIRNS UV helmet lights, divers can have both hands free while using a powerful UV light to help identify metal fissures and weak areas at depth.

Whether used in ship inspection, or for myriad military and offshore oil and gas applications, the new low voltage BIRNS UV lights have brilliant LED illumination in conjunction with UV lamps, so they operate safely both in and out of the water. Plus, they are ballast-free systems, with instant On/Off capabilities, so they’re extremely easy and convenient to use. Rated to 3,400m, the BIRNS Snooperette-UV is highly versatile, compact (Ø76mm), and is perfect for divers, cameras and ROVs. The BIRNS Aquila-UV is rated to 200m and features a Ø60mm (Ø2.4”) housing with wire-free construction, which combines advanced design characteristics with a streamlined 97mm (3.8”) profile that makes it simple to relamp in just 30 seconds. It has an ergonomically-designed compact mounting diameter, with a coarse diamond knurled surface for easy hand gripping or positioning on a mounting bracket. Both of these innovative new UV lighting systems are destined to become a part of BIRNS’ rich history of developing the ultimate high performance, proven lighting systems in the market.

EEMUA subsea engineering course: materials selection and corrosion control

This two and a half day training course is recommended for both discipline and project focused engineers from a variety of backgrounds who want to gain an understanding of the fundamental principles for selecting and specifying materials of construction for subsea equipment, and for corrosion control during deployment, commission and operation. The course is based on the EEMUA User Guide to subsea materials selection and corrosion control, EEMUA Publication 194.

It is operated in association with the Society for Underwater Technology (SUT). Permanent employees of EEMUA and SUT member companies are entitled to a 20% discount off the standard course fee.
