Top 5 Explosion Proof Lighting Questions
There are many ways to cause explosions in the workplace but with proper selection of certified explosion proof lighting products you can ensure that your lighting isn't one of those causes. Finding an explosion proof light that will adequately light your work space as well as meet all of the intense demands and certification requirements can be a challenge to say the least. From Aircraft Manufacturing to Natural Gas Measurement, the industries and applications where certified lighting required is extensive. At Golden Future Ltd, we like to simplify this process for you by providing a one on one consultation to discuss the specific needs of your work space and desires of the operators using our products. During these consultations there are many questions that we hear on a regular basis so we wanted to provide you with answers in order to help you through your process of selecting the best explosion proof lighting.
1. Are Explosion Proof Lights Repairable?
Certified explosion proof lights contain many intricate parts and connection points that are designed to ensure the safety of the operator and maintain their explosion proof certification. As a result all repairs must be handled directly by the manufacturer to ensure the continued safety of both the product and the operator.
2. Are Explosion Proof Lights able to be used in wet environments?
Most explosion proof lights are not intended for use in wet locations and thereby it is not recommended that they be used in areas where they could be exposed to any moisture unless they are certified and listed for wet location use. Golden Future mining lights are wet location certified and each product is specifically designed to be taken in locations where exposure to water is possible or imminent. Although not considered to be a fully immersible waterproof explosion proof light, our products have been put to the test in some of the most demanding and hazardous marine environments as well as other locations where exposure to water is commonplace.
3. How Much Power Does Explosion Proof Lighting Require/Consume?
Power consumption with explosion proof lighting will vary greatly from product to product and the number of active lights being used in the work site. When compared to incandescent counterparts, Golden future mining light consumes an incredibly small amount of power per lumen, thanks to the LED technology and proprietary optics. Most of our products can lighting for more than 15 hours after 5 hours charging.
4. How Are Explosion Proof Lights Mounted?
The majority of explosion proof lighting products on the market are lights that were originally designed for permanent installation but modified with a longer cable and explosion proof plug. Lights that are designed for permanent installation have limited possibilities for mounting and their increased bulkiness prevents it from offering a truly portable experience. Explosion proof light series DL601, DL607,DL611 and DL618 of Golden future (http://www.goldenfuturecn.com/) are purpose built and certified as Portable, Explosion Proof, Wet Location, Low Voltage lighting and are incredibly light weight. From flexible arm to ladder mounts to tripod stands our explosion proof lights can be mounted in virtually any location and offer a level of portability untouched by any other product in the industry.
5. Do Explosion Proof Lights generate heat?
Traditional incandescent bulbs generate light by moving energy through (heating) a small wire element which emits light as a result. Naturally, this heat cannot be contained entirely within the bulb and as such radiates out into the environment causing overheating and potentially hazardous temperatures. Golden Future Ltd uses pure LED technology to reduce the amount of radiant heat thereby allowing for higher light output capabilities using less power.
