The scopes will be used to inspect turbines on C-130 Hercules, P3

in 1996, Lenox develops scopes for real time monitoring of shipboard
boilers thus allowing for fuel conservation and a safer environment
by avoiding boiler explosions.

Lenox instruments are in use every day! In the power generation field
for inspecting steam turbines, heat exchangers, tubing, and pressure
vessels. They are employed in the aviation field, ensuring that the
engines of jumbo jets have not developed any defects, checking the
quality of helicopter blades or rotor shafts. Our scopes peer into
modern nuclear reactors, they inspect the tubing in oil refineries,
pharmaceutical plants, and chemical facilities. Lenox scopes increase
safety, productivity and quality through their many applications.
Lenox has, or will develop a product for your special needs!
