Equipment provider Marco Group International has announced the release of a new lighting tool for use in abrasive blasting applications.

The company’s new Blastmaster 308 Series LED Hose-Mounted Light is designed to provide a crisp light to illuminate the area being abrasive blasted and give the operator better visibility of the work surface.

The three-LED module design produces a 45-inch, round pattern of bright white light at 18 inches from the surface, according to the company. The brightness created is similar to that of daylight, it adds.

The three-LED module design of the Blastmaster 308 produces a 45-inch, round pattern of bright white light at 18 inches from the surface.

The light includes an abrasion-resistant urethane body that weighs only 11 ounces, which is meant to minimize additional weight on the blast hose that could lead to operator fatigue, according to the company.

Additionally, the shatter-resistant borosilicate lens was designed to protect the long-lasting LED module, the company explains.

Designed to be used with multiple power sources, the LED Hose Mounted Light is said to be ideal for a wide range of applications. The company suggests typical applications might include blast rooms, blast yards, bridges, oil refineries, offshore platforms, pipelines, shipyards, storage tanks and water treatment plants.
