Larson Electronics releases a Class 1 Division 2 Fluorescent Light Fixture with a Neoprene Gasket Seal

By incorporating a neoprene gasket on this fixture, it is resistant to moderate chemicals and acids, as well as oils, fats, greases, and solvents.

Kemp, Texas (PRWEB) September 05, 2014

The HALP-48-2L-NSIL hazardous area fluorescent light fixture from Larson Electronics is designed for use in wet areas and saltwater-marine environments where corrosion resistance is critical to equipment longevity and safety. This Class 1 Division 2 rated fixture is constructed of non-corrosive materials including polyester housing reinforced with glass fiber, a poured in neoprene gasket for reliable sealing and an impact resistant acrylic diffuser. Eight corrosion resistant plastic latches secure the lamp cover to the housing and provides a firm lock against the poured in seal to prevent drips and water intrusion. This fixture is UL 844 rated and Class 1 Division 2 Groups A, B, C, D, approved and also carries a UL 1598A outdoor marine rating and meets US Coast Guard specifications. This fluorescent light fixture comes equipped with two T5HO, T8, or T12HO lamps and is equipped with a universal ballast that can operate on 120V to 277V AC.

The fixture is mounted with flange type stainless steel mounts attached at each end of the fixture which enables the fixture to be secured to any surface. These mounts provide some shock absorbency protection while enabling the user to simply mount the fixture with through-hole taps that protrude on each side of the fixture. These fixtures also provide a pendant mount option for operators who need to hang the fixture from a ceiling. Each fixture is equipped with two ¾” NPT hubs, one on each end of the fixture. Operators bring rigid pipe down to the threaded mounting hubs. Wiring is fed down through the rigid pipe to one of the NPT hubs and tied in to the fixture’s lead wires, completing the electrical connection. The remaining pendant hub provides support for the opposite end of the fixture.

“Although silicone gaskets are high heat resistant, the silicone is attacked and broken down by certain chemicals,” said Rob Bresnahan with Larsonelectronics.com. “By incorporating a neoprene gasket on this fixture, it is resistant to moderate chemicals and acids, as well as oils, fats, greases, and solvents.”
