We continue to see more demand for ultraviolet (UV) explosion proof lighting and we are addressing that need with our fluorescent explosion proof lighting family
Kemp, TX (Vocus) November 2, 2010
Larson Electronics added a new two foot, two lamp ultraviolet explosion proof light to its lineup of hazardous location lighting. The EPL-24-2L-UV offers specific configurations for the ultraviolet wavelengths in the A (315-400nm), B (280-315nm) or C (100-280nm) bands. The Magnalight UV explosion proof light can be used in areas where either flammable vapors or dusts are constantly present. The EPL-24-2L-UV is the newest member of a family of hazardous location use lights that are available in 2 foot and 4 foot lengths and can be equipped to operate with two or four lamps. This UL 844 listed ultraviolet light operates on voltages ranging from 120 volt to 277 volts on 50/60 Hz, making it applicable to domestic US and international applications globally. The EPL-24 series of explosion proof lights also carries a separate UL listing for paint spray booth use.
“We continue to see more demand for ultraviolet (UV) explosion proof lighting and we are addressing that need with our fluorescent explosion proof lighting family,” said Rob Bresnahan with Larson Electronics’ magnalight.com. “We can also custom build cart mounted and portable explosion proof lighting solutions with the ultraviolet lights. We have a four foot four lamp light and a four foot two lamp model that are integrated into different types of wheeled carts. Operators are not limited to overhead surface mount or wall mount explosion proof UV lights. We can build wheeled carts that enable them to position a two foot or four foot UV light beside or beneath the work piece. So far, we have seen operators use the ultraviolet explosion proof lights in the UVA or UVB band to control pests or cure adhesives and coatings. However, the UVC band is commonly used to kill germs. Our explosion proof lights our built to work on any voltage and frequency around the globe and are made in the USA.”
Larson Electronics produces the Magnalight brand of explosion proof lighting, including paint spray booth lighting, explosion proof LED lights and a variety of intrinsically safe lighting options for manufacturing, petrochemical and military applications.
