This explosion proof string light configuration offers brighter, whiter light while eliminating the need to change the bulb for years
Kemp, TX (Vocus) October 27, 2009
Larson Electronics’ Magnalight.com announced the addition of the EPL-SL-10-LED LED explosion proof string light, featuring 10 drop lights and 180 feet of SOW cord. Carrying a UL 783 rating of Class 1 Division 1 and Class 2 Division 1, the 180 foot string features 10 explosion proof LED drop lights at 10 foot intervals.
Each explosion proof LED drop light is configured with a hanging hook, and a 80 foot tail is terminated with an explosion proof twist lock plug. The hazardous location string light is commonly used for illuminating hazardous location tanks, vessels and other storage facilities where limited access to electrical outlets prevents usage of individual lights. While larger, cart based metal halide lights, like the EPL-24C-1X4 explosion proof tank lights offer a single source lighting solution, the explosion proof string lights remain popular with environmental companies and other operators seeking to clean, blast and re-surface hazardous location storage tanks.
“This explosion proof string light configuration offers brighter, whiter light while eliminating the need to change the bulb for years,” said Rob Bresnahan with Larson Electronics. “Changing a bulb in a dark, dirty tank is a pain. You have to locate the set screw, back it out and then unscrew the guard and globe while holding a large pipe wrench on the base. With our new LED bulbs, you won’t need to change that bulb for at least 5 years, even if you used it every day. With solid state technology, you don’t have to worry about breaking a filament, extreme temperatures or the other issues that make it necessary to constantly change incandescent light bulbs. Every time you open an explosion proof light, you run the risk of contaminating the seal when the light is exposed to dirt and grime. You can avoid the down time and risk associated with changing the bulb. Plus, you are getting brighter, whiter light output than the conventional 100 Watt halogen. With minimal amp draw, we can provide this explosion proof string light configuration in high voltage or low voltage 12 or 24 volt arrangements.”
