Kemp, TX (Vocus) May 5, 2010
Larson Electronics’ magnalight.com announced the addition of several new LED explosion proof paint spray booth lights for hazardous location area use. With a UL Class 1 Division 1 and Class 2 Division 1 rating, these paint spray booth certified lights offer more light output than high output fluorescent alternatives, but with lower electricity usage and 5.5 year bulb life. Operators can be OSHA compliant in their paint spray booths, while reducing the cost of electricity consumption and the cost associated with re-lamping these explosion proof lights. The EPL-48-2L-LED and EPL-48-4L-LED are the four foot versions of the LED explosion proof LED lights and the EPL-24-2L-LED is the 2 foot configuration.
These LED explosion proof paint spray booth lights are made in the USA and feature both surface and pendant mounting options. Wheeled cart options, including the EPLC-48-4L-LED and the EPLCD-48-2L-LED offer operators the ability to move the paint spray booth lights in and around the hazardous location area to suit the particular coating application.
“These LED explosion proof lights complement our existing line of explosion proof fluorescent lights for paint spray booths while offering lower cost of operation and less maintenance,” said Rob Bresnahan with Larson Electronics’ magnalight.com. “These hazardous location lights are UL certified for both flammable vapors and dusts, making them suitable for all types of manufacturing and processing. Some of the unique applications we have discovered include manufacturing applications where UV is not permissible. Our LED lights do not produce any UV light at all, so instead of looking for ways to block the UV generated by fluorescent lights, operators have found they can get exactly the bandwidth of light they require, and eliminate bandwidths below 420nm. We can adjust color temperature and bandwidth to suit specific applications with these explosion proof lights.”
Larson Electronics offers a wide array of explosion proof lighting for hazardous location areas, including handheld, portable and surface mount lighting with UL Class 1 and Class 2 ratings.
