BPI has introduced a stainless steel Spark Resistant Vent Hood (Product 15003) to join the standard stainless steel Vent Hood (Product 15002) and Production Vent Hood (Product 15001) in its Laboratory Equipment line. This new vent hood utilizes a special spark resistant blower and has all electrical circuits and lighting external to the air flow chamber. The 900 CFM blower, although relatively quiet, thoroughly exhausts the working area. The hood is 36" wide and 28" deep. Its overall height (including the blower which is external to the hood) is 49".
BPI has introduced a new tinting caplet for use in BPI Turbo Tinters or in other tinting units. The BPI T2 Black Caplet (Product Code 50065) joins the existing line of BPI Tinting Pills as an even more durable tinting option. The BPI T2 (for "Turbo Tinter") Caplet will tolerate the higher temperatures often used in the Turbo Tinters without color degradation. The caplet may also be used in standard tinting units for extended tinting lifetimes.
BPI has replaced its liquid defoamer with a new concentrated version, BPI No Foam Powder (product code 40211). A single capful will defoam five gallons of lens edging or surfacing coolant fluid.
BPI has introduced a new addition to its line of color analysis meters. The BPI RGB Spectrometer / Color Analyzer (PC 19504) joins the ranks of the BPI Spectrometer (PC 19501) and the BPI Dual Cuvette Spectrometer (PC 19502) as a cost effective means for checking and matching tinted lenses and filters. The BPI RGB Spectrometer looks at the three principal colors, red, green and blue, which the eye uses for making its color determinations. The meter then converts this information into color coordinate information, such as (L*, a* ,b*) or (x,y,Y) or (X,Y,Z) or even BPI's (R,G,B). This information is then used by the Companion PC Program to compare the sample color with that of another lens or filter (the standard) and predict what corrector tints and times would be needed to bring the sample close to the color standard.
BPI has added color space information to our website for those who would like to become better informed on the subject of color perception and analysis.
Several new tints have recently been added to the large BPI® tint family. These include
BPI® Mocha™ (34702): A light to medium honey brown.
BPI® FL-41™ (37616): A rose colored tint which independent researchers have found to be beneficial in treating photophobia, blepharospasm (uncontrollable blinking) and migraines by blocking portions of the blue-green spectrum.
BPI® Amber™ (20601): A honey shade of amber.
BPI® Drivers™ (37627): A brownish shade of amber that passes traffic light colors.
BPI® Melanin™ (37617): A yellowish-brown tint which mimics the absorption spectrum of natural melanin. This color reduces the destructive high-energy side of the visible spectrum while allowing enough blue light to provide natural perception of color.
